    How to clean glass pipe (easy way)

    I said the next time my pipe got dirty I was going to make a guide on how to clean it basically the easiest way that I know how. It worked every time and never failed, it even cleans hard to reach places in your pipe when you try to clean it out with some type of thin object. EVERYONE should have these items in their household and that's why I think it's the most easiest because well it doesn't get more simple than this

    The things you need is
    • A piece of paper
    • Iodized Salt
    • Isopropyl Alcohol


    Now the pictures basically explains it self. All you're doing is making a form in the paper so the salt doesn't go in the bowl all at one time and get clogged, then you would pour the alcohol into the bowl as well. Then plug all 3 holes and shake vigorously. When you're done shaking all you have to do is let the stuff run out and you'll see all the dirt. For people with pipes that aren't see thru that'll probably be the only way you can tell your pipe has been cleaned out unless it doesn't smell like resin any more.

    And bam, your pipe should look just the way it did on the day you bought it other than the slight color change .

    Not really a long tutorial, but it shouldn't have to be, it's plain and simple and it works. And although majority of you might know how to clean your pipes already there are some that still don't know how and I think it's nice to help out because I know how annoying a dirty pipe can be.

    This is still easier IMO. Don't need a microwave and don't need to "repeat until completely clean". It usually only takes one go to clean them out this way. And I don't think microwaving is any thing different than boiling your pipe which I did and it didn't work. The resin build-up in my pipe was way too thick for water boiling and stuff.

    Nice little tutorial you got there, orange. It's a shame I just cleaned my pipe earlier today, because I would've given this method a try. Ah well, it's still sorta resed up, maybe I'll give it a shot later tonight.

    By the way, I've got the same pipe, just slightttly different design down the middle shaft. If it's anything like mine, you already know that shit rips for such a little pipe. Happy smokin man.

    I do the same thing to clean my bowl except I skip on the salt. Does the salt react with the alcohol or does it just shake around to break up the resin?

    I believe it really just helps to break up the resin. I'm not sure though.

    Wow! I'm doing the exact same thing after about 20 yr. break. Never had glass bowls back then. We had bubblers, but even those had metal bowls. I smoked out of metal mostly but wooden spoons too. That cleaning method will work great on my All-in-Wonder bowl for my vaporizer. My Vapolution vape and using that All-in Wonder bowl is the coolest thing I've seen in a long time. Totally glass-on-glass. Use about a pencil eraser size bowlful and in about 5 toots your toasted pretty good. I am now. 2-3X everyday. Unbelievable. No fire. I can plug it into a cigarette lighter too.

    Brake clean

    Go grab a can of brake clean spray it all over let it chill for a sec then after a minute or so start blasting all that gook and nasty shit right out of there then flush with soap and hot water and check those results! WOW that took two minutes.... never use this stuff inside spray outside and flush it with soap and water wherever you want.
