The most important material that you need for cleaning a bong bowl is your cleaning solution. You can use a bong cleaning solution or something that you can quickly grab in a pharmacy and grocery store. Here’s what you need to clean your bong bowl.
Resin is a different material altogether, especially when combined with combusted material. Your bong bowl is the most abused part of your bong because this is where you fire up your herbs. Burning material and resin can bond together to create a nasty layer on your bowl.
Unfortunately, resin is not water-soluble. No matter how hard you scrub it even with the strongest detergent, you won’t be able to take it out of your bowl. This is where your bong solution or isopropyl alcohol comes in. They loosen and dissolve resin, making it easier for you to clean out the gunk.
If you’re using iso, salt is a necessary aggregator to help you scrub out buildup from your bowl. Make sure to use salt that has grains small enough to fit inside the hole of your bong bowl.
Keep your bong bowl clean keeps away nasty bacteria, gives you the pure taste of your herbs and provides a smooth airflow. Cleaning a bong bowl should be done often unless you want to buy bong bowls now and then. Also, let the bong bowl go down to room temperature first before you clean it.
Now, we’ve seen and heard of people boiling their bong bowls. No matter how good your bong bowl is like our Pulsar Rounded Glass 19mm Female Bong Bowl, it’s no match for thermal shock. The heat can loosen up resin, but it will also weaken your bong bowl and shorten its lifespan. It may not crack or shatter now, but it will eventually.
