A guide on how to clean a bong.
A good session starts with a clean piece. If you’re the type of stoner who loves their bong, keeping your bong clean is imperative. A clean bong ensures each hit you take tastes exactly like the herb you loaded the bowl with – not a bunch of nasty old resin. And without all that gunk sticking to the insides, you’ll allow all the smoke to pass effortlessly into your lungs. Plus, who doesn’t like the look of a sparkling piece of glassware? We’ve got the definitive guide on how to clean your bong. Just follow these simple steps, and your favorite apparatus will look, and function, just like the day you bought it.
Step 1: Assemble Your Bong Cleaning Materials
Cleaning your bong requires nothing more than a few standard household items. You probably won’t have to venture any farther than your garage to get everything you need, so start looking around the house until you’ve assembled all of these items:
- Epsom salt or table salt
- Rubbing alcohol
- Pipe cleaners
- Disposable latex gloves (optional)
Step 2: Disassemble Your Bong
Take everything apart to make the cleaning process as easy as possible. This means removing the stem, the bowl piece, and anything else until all removable parts are separated. For now, set everything aside except for the main section – we’ll tackle that first.
Step 3: Rinse Your Bong
The process of “how to clean your bong” is as simple as getting all that resin stuck to the inside to fall off. The best way to start loosening up that gunk is by rinsing the inside of the bong with hot water.
The warmer the water, the looser you’ll be able to make the resin. Once you’ve rinsed your bong for a minute or two, move on to the next step.
