A bong is a device that allows you to smoke herbs or tobacco by filtering the smoke through water. Bongs can enhance the flavor and smoothness of your smoke, but they also require regular cleaning to prevent resin buildup, mold growth, and bad taste. In this blog post, we will show you how to clean a bong with alcohol, a cheap and effective method that can restore your bong to its original glory.
What You Need
- A dirty bong
- Isopropyl alcohol (91% or 99%)
- Coarse salt (such as table salt, Epsom salt, or rock salt)
- Resealable plastic bags
- Paper towels or cotton swabs
- Water and soap
Step 1: Disassemble and Rinse Your Bong
The first step is to take apart your bong and remove any detachable parts, such as the bowl, the stem, and the mouthpiece. Rinse each piece with hot water to get rid of any loose debris and gunk. You can also use a paper towel or a cotton swab to wipe off any sticky residue.
Step 2: Soak Your Bong in Alcohol and Salt
The next step is to soak your bong in alcohol and salt, which will dissolve and scrub away the resin that has accumulated on the glass. To do this, you need to:
- Take a resealable plastic bag and place the bowl, the stem, and any other small parts inside.
- Add some coarse salt to the bag. The salt will act as an abrasive and help loosen the resin.
- Pour enough isopropyl alcohol into the bag to cover the parts completely. The alcohol will dissolve the resin and kill any bacteria or mold.
- Seal the bag and shake it vigorously for a few minutes. You should see the alcohol turn brown as it removes the resin.
- Repeat the same process for the main body of the bong. You can either use a larger bag or fill the bong directly with alcohol and salt.
Step 3: Rinse and Dry Your Bong
The final step is to rinse and dry your bong thoroughly. To do this, you need to:
- Drain the alcohol and salt mixture from the bag and the bong. You can discard it safely in the sink or toilet.
- Rinse each piece of your bong with hot water and soap. Make sure to remove any traces of alcohol, salt, or resin.
- Dry your bong with a paper towel or let it air dry completely before reassembling it.
