Give Your Glass Pipe A Quick Rinse

Empty your water pipe water and rinse your glass with warm water. Try to remove as much debris as possible. You’d be surprised at how far just hot water can go cleaning your glass pieces. If you’re in a pinch and don’t have alcohol, this will at least help you hold out a little longer until you can get some glass pipe cleaner.

Give Your Bong A Quick Rinse Empty your bong water and rinse your glass with warm water. Try to remove as much debris as possible. You’d be surprised at how far just hot water can go cleaning your glass pieces. If you’re in a pinch and don’t have alcohol, this will at least help you hold out a little longer until you can get some bong cleaner.

Let’s See Some Results

Getting resin out of a bong can be tricky, especially if you’ve never done it before. This is where most people have questions on how to clean a bubbler or a water pipe. Start by pouring a medium amount of your cleaning solution into the pipe followed by a handful of salt. We usually fill the bong up with alcohol slightly less than how much you would fill it up with water to smoke. You can also use a spoon to pour the salt down the chamber of your water pipe!

If you’re cleaning a water pipe without rubbing alcohol, try using extra salt, warmer water or nail polish remover.

Glass Pipes Cleaning Headache

Cover any openings with appropriately sized material. The goal is to keep the openings sealed and prevent leaking or spilling in the next step.

Alternatively, try cotton balls to cover the bowl/stem openings and a small hand towel for the main tube of the water pipe. Saran wrap and a rubber band is also a great solution.

Shake It, Baby!

After letting the alcohol solution soak, it’s time to shake things up. Firmly grasp the covered openings of your bong closed and shake the solution inside. The salt will act as a light abrasive to clean through the tough spots of your dirty glass pipe.

Whatever doesn’t get clean after about a minute or so of shaking with alcohol and salt, use pipe cleaners to get in through the stem of the glass pipe to get the rest of the resin off your glass piece.
