    I just put mine in the dishwasher when/if i do the dishes. Hot water with lots of soap seems to do the trick, forget solvents.

    check out Clean Dream! Just started using this stuff!

    all natural! Not full of alcohol or tire degreaser like half the products out there.

    Took me less than a minute to clean my piece without having to scrub or anything! Works miracles! Also after you clean your bong use that solution put it in a ziplock, then put ur down stems,bowls and pipes in there. You can use the solution couple more times so you dont keep pouring out!

    This has more to do with the quality and thickness of the glass.

    Just do whatever method is easiest for you, that way it makes cleaning less of a hassle and makes you more likely to do it more often.

    Remove any loose materials from the pipe. Hold the pipe upside down and gently tap to remove any remaining particles.
    Remove pipe from the bag. Rinse thoroughly under cold water, and then use a pipe cleaner or cotton swab to remove any excess residue.

    You CAN boil your glass if you want. I definitely recommend starting with Isopropyl alcohol and salt as others have suggested (seriously other cleaners are a huge waste of money and in many cases even less effective) and only boil if you can't get everything off with just alcohol and salt.

    Here's where most people fail in boiling their pipes. Glass wont be weakened simply from heating it. Glass will be weakened or made brittle if it changes temperature too fast. This means you shouldn't boil water and then add your pipe. you should start with room temperature water with your pipe in the pot. Bring the water to a boil slowly and let it boil as long as necessary. When you're done, turn the heat to low until the water stops boiling. When it stops boiling, turn off the heat and leave your pipe in the water and let it sit until it reverts back to room temperature. After that you can take it out and smoke as you please. Glass can take plenty of heat (well over boiled water), just not a dramatic heat shift quickly. Most importantly don't take a piece out of boiling water and rinse it with cold water, that's a recipe for disaster.

    I like to keep my water pipes & bongs clean by :
    1. Rinse out with warm(not hot) water.
    2.Pour in 1/2 to 1 cup rubbing alcohol (iso) & plug opening. Shake & let sit awhile.
    3.Dump out alcohol & rinse with water.
    Actually acetone is much better. But I broke my big bong & had to mend it with epoxy & acetone eats epoxy. So use acetone (very flammable) if you don't have my mended bong problem. I use course salt with alcohol on stubborn crap.
    Also, I use a little ash skimmer brass sheet metal screen that has a handle & is very easy to clean. 3waterpipes 3.JPG 4GD glass pipes w spoons.jpg
    A Clean smelling & tasting pipe really helps achieving nirvana!
