How to use a glass bong without making too much noise or smell that might bother others or attract attention?



A glass bong is a device that uses water to cool and filter the smoke from burning herb or tobacco, producing a smooth and potent hit. However, using a glass bong can also be noisy and smelly, especially if you are trying to be discreet or respectful of your neighbors. In this blog post, we will give you some tips on how to use a glass bong without making too much noise or smell that might bother others or attract attention.

What you need

Before you start, make sure you have the following items:

  • A glass bong. Glass bongs are made by superheating glass to a temperature of up to 1163°C and blowing air into it to form a bubble-like shape. They usually have a bowl, a downstem, a water chamber, and a mouthpiece. Some also have additional features like ice catches, percolators, or carb holes.
  • Herb or tobacco. You can use any kind of herb or tobacco that you prefer, but make sure it is dry and well-ground. You can use a grinder, scissors, or your fingers to break it up into small pieces.
  • Water. You will need water to fill the water chamber of your glass bong. You can use bottled or tap water, but avoid using hot water as it can damage the glass.
  • A lighter or hemp wick. You will need something to light your herb or tobacco with. You can use a regular lighter, but be aware that it can produce butane fumes that are not good for your health. A better alternative is to use a hemp wick, which is a natural and organic way to light your herb or tobacco without inhaling any chemicals.

How to use a glass bong

Once you have everything ready, follow these steps to use your glass bong:

  1. Pour water into the mouthpiece of your glass bong until the water level is above the base of the downstem but below the bowl. You don’t need more water than that, as it can splash into your mouth or make the hit too harsh.
  2. Pack the bowl with about half a gram of herb or tobacco. Don’t pack it too tightly, as it can restrict the airflow and make it harder to draw smoke.
  3. Place your mouth inside the mouthpiece, creating a tight seal with your lips. If your glass bong has a carb hole, cover it with your thumb or finger.
  4. Hold a lighter or hemp wick over the bowl and inhale slowly and steadily. As you inhale, you will see the smoke bubbling up through the water and filling the chamber of your glass bong.
  5. When the chamber is full of smoke, pull out the bowl or uncover the carb hole and inhale the rest of the smoke from the chamber into your lungs. Hold it for a few seconds and then exhale.
  6. Repeat steps 3-5 as desired. Remember to clear the chamber after each hit, as leaving smoke in it can make it stale and harsh.

How to reduce noise and smell

Using a glass bong can be noisy and smelly, especially if you are trying to be discreet or respectful of your surroundings. Here are some tips on how to reduce noise and smell when using a glass bong:

  • Use ice cubes in the water chamber. This will cool down the smoke even more and make it smoother and quieter. Some glass bongs have ice catches that hold ice cubes above the water level.
  • Use an air freshener or incense. This will mask the smell of herb or tobacco smoke and create a pleasant aroma in your room. You can also spray some air freshener on your clothes, hair, and hands after smoking.
  • Use a sploof or smoke buddy. A sploof is a homemade device that filters the smoke through dryer sheets or activated charcoal before releasing it into the air. A smoke buddy is a commercial version of a sploof that you can buy online or in headshops. To use either one, simply exhale the smoke through them instead of into the air.
  • Use a window fan or an exhaust fan. This will help ventilate your room and blow out any smoke that might linger in the air. You can also open a window or door to let some fresh air in.

How to clean a glass bong

After using your glass bong, you should clean it regularly to prevent the buildup of resin, tar, and bacteria. A dirty glass bong can affect the taste and quality of your smoke, as well as your health. Here are some steps to clean your glass bong:

  1. Empty the water from your glass bong and rinse it with hot water.
  2. Remove the bowl and the downstem and place them in a zipper-top plastic bag. Pour some rubbing alcohol and coarse salt into the bag and shake it vigorously. The alcohol and salt will act as solvents and abrasives that will dissolve and scrub away the resin.
  3. Pour some rubbing alcohol and coarse salt into the water chamber of your glass bong. Plug the holes with some plugs or paper towels and shake it vigorously. You can also use a bottle brush or a pipe cleaner to reach the hard-to-clean areas.
  4. Rinse the bowl, the downstem, and the glass bong with hot water until all the alcohol, salt, and resin are gone.
  5. Dry the bowl, the downstem, and the glass bong with some paper towels or a cloth. Store them in a cool and dry place until you are ready to use them again.
