If you smoke on a regular basis, chances are your glass pipe will need a good cleaning at some point. Over time, tar and resin build up inside your pipe and cause your bowl to darken. This can also lead to a buildup of bacteria, which is harmful to your health. Luckily, there are some simple steps to clean your glass pipe without the use of harsh chemicals.
1. Fill The Pipe
There are a few different ways you can clean your glass pipe. One of the most common ways is to use isopropyl alcohol and salt. Start by filling your pipe with isopropyl alcohol and salt. The salt acts as an abrasive to scrub the resin away and helps break up tar and resin buildup.
After filling your pipe with the solution, shake the pipe to help loosen any stubborn plugs that have formed inside the pipe.
3. Pour Out
In the event where there are still noticeable plugs within your pipe, rinse your pipe with warm water and repeat the process if needed.
Found some especially stubborn gunk? Start your next step by filling a zip-lock bag with isopropyl alcohol and two teaspoons of salt. Seal your pipe in the bag and leave it to soak for up to 12 hours. After the soak is complete, shake well, and scrub any areas where you see residue.
5. Let It Dry
After the pipe has soaked, remove it from the solution and rinse thoroughly with warm water. You can then set the piece down on a paper towel to dry.
