If you enjoy smoking herb or tobacco from a bong, you know how important it is to keep your water pipe clean and fresh. A dirty bong can ruin the taste of your smoke, harbor harmful bacteria and mold, and even pose a health risk to your lungs. That’s why you should clean your bong regularly, ideally after every use or at least once a week.
But how do you clean a bong effectively and easily? One of the best methods is to use alcohol and salt as natural cleaners and disinfectants. Alcohol can dissolve the sticky resin that builds up on the glass, while salt can act as an abrasive to scrub away any stubborn stains. In this blog post, we will show you how to clean a bong with alcohol in a few simple steps.
What You Need
To clean a bong with alcohol, you will need the following items:
- A dirty bong
- 91% or 99% isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol)
- Coarse salt (such as Epsom salt, rock salt, or sea salt)
- Two large zipper storage bags
- Rubber stoppers or bong plugs
- A towel
- Water and soap
Step 1: Disassemble Your Bong
The first step is to take apart your bong and remove any detachable parts, such as the bowl, the stem, the percolator, or the ash catcher. These parts will be cleaned separately in the zipper bags. Rinse every piece with water to get rid of any loose debris or ash.
Step 2: Fill Your Bong with Alcohol and Salt
The next step is to fill your bong with alcohol and salt. Pour enough alcohol into the bong to cover most of the inside surface. Then, add a generous amount of salt into the bong. The salt will not dissolve in the alcohol, but will act as an abrasive to help loosen the resin.
Step 3: Plug the Openings and Shake Your Bong
Now, you need to plug the openings of your bong with rubber stoppers or bong plugs. This will prevent the alcohol and salt from spilling out when you shake your bong. If you don’t have rubber stoppers or bong plugs, you can use paper towels or plastic wrap instead.
Once you have plugged the openings, shake your bong vigorously for about five minutes. You will see the alcohol turning brown as it dissolves the resin. You can also tilt your bong in different directions to make sure the alcohol and salt reach every corner of the glass.
Step 4: Place the Detachable Parts in Zipper Bags with Alcohol and Salt
While you are shaking your bong, you can also clean the detachable parts in zipper bags. Take one part at a time and place it in a zipper bag. Then, pour some alcohol and salt into the bag until the part is fully submerged. Seal the bag and shake it for a few minutes as well.
Step 5: Rinse Your Bong and Parts with Water and Soap
After shaking your bong and parts for about five minutes, you can rinse them with water and soap. Pour out the dirty alcohol and salt from your bong and remove the plugs. Then, rinse your bong thoroughly with hot water until all traces of alcohol and salt are gone. You can also use some dish soap to wash your bong and make it extra shiny.
Do the same for the detachable parts in zipper bags. Pour out the dirty alcohol and salt from each bag and rinse each part with hot water and soap. Make sure to rinse well so that no alcohol or salt remains on your parts.
Step 6: Dry Your Bong and Parts with a Towel
The final step is to dry your bong and parts with a towel. Use a soft cloth or paper towel to wipe down your bong and parts until they are completely dry. You can also let them air dry on a towel if you prefer.
