So you have your favorite pipe that you bring with you everywhere. You use it at least once a day and you know just how to hit it so you get the perfect hit every time. However, over time you have noticed that it gets clogged very easily and sometimes it is barely hit-able. Time to clean this bugger out, but how?? Scraping is an option, but it is tedious and never really gets all the resin out. There are many products on the market that you can purchase to clean the resin out of your pipes, bubblers, and bongs however, prices can run $20 a bottle or more, so it can get expensive quick.
I love the taste of smoking a fresh bowl of dank weed out of a clean pipe so I clean my pieces regularly. I have used most of the cleaners on the market and I have found the best, most cost-effective cleaner out there you can get for five bucks or less.
You will need two items. You can find them anywhere.
A canister of salt:
A bottle of isopropyl rubbing alcohol:
For bongs, pour some rubbing alcohol in the chamber and add generous amounts of salt. Then swirl the solution around until all the resin has been loosened or dissolved and rinse it out with warm water. For pipes and bubblers, just get a zip lock baggy and pour some rubbing alcohol and salt in it. Then put your pipe in the bag and shake vigorously. Sometimes the resin in my pipe gets so thick, I will just let it sit overnight in the bag to let the solution soak in. After the resin is broken up, just rinse the pipe with warm water. If there is still some resin remaining, just repeat the process until it is gone. Just let it dry and it will taste and hit like a brand new piece.
