How to Clean a Bong with Baking Soda



If you enjoy smoking herb or tobacco from a bong, you know how important it is to keep it clean and fresh. A dirty bong can ruin the taste of your smoke, harbor bacteria and mold, and look unsightly. Fortunately, there is a simple and effective way to clean your bong using baking soda and some other household items. Here are the steps to follow:

  1. Remove the bowl and downstem from your bong and place them in a separate plastic bag or container.
  2. Rinse your bong with warm water to remove any loose particles and debris.
  3. Add a few tablespoons of baking soda to the mouthpiece of your bong and shake it around to coat the inside.
  4. Fill your bong with vinegar until it covers the baking soda. You will see it bubble up and fizz as the two substances react and loosen the resin and tar.
  5. Cover the holes of your bong with your hands or some plastic wrap and shake it vigorously for a few minutes.
  6. Pour out the vinegar and baking soda mixture and rinse your bong with warm water. You can use a pipe cleaner or a long brush to scrub any stubborn spots.
  7. Repeat the process if necessary until your bong is sparkling clean.
  8. For the bowl and downstem, you can use the same method of baking soda and vinegar, or you can soak them in rubbing alcohol and coarse salt for an hour or more. Then rinse them with warm water and scrub them with a pipe cleaner or a cotton swab.
  9. Let your bong, bowl, and downstem dry completely before reassembling and using them.

Congratulations, you have successfully cleaned your bong with baking soda! Enjoy the smooth and flavorful hits from your freshly cleaned water pipe. Remember to change your bong water after each session and to clean your bong regularly to keep it in optimal condition.
