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.
