Cleaning the Main Section
1. Disassemble the bong.
Take it apart so that the individual pieces can be cleaned. Remove all movable parts, especially the bowl and mouthpiece, if there is one.
2. Rinse the bong.
Rinse as much of the bong with water first and then allow it to dry. Use water as hot as you can stand without dropping the bong.
3. Pour in salt.
Pour Epsom salt or table salt into the bowl and the mouthpiece. You can use a funnel if this makes it easier. Pour in however much is appropriate for the size of the bong. An average bong would need about 1/3-1/2 a cup.
- Alternatively, you can use baking soda if you prefer the taste.
4. Pour in your cleaning solution.
Pour in a reasonable amount of your preferred cleaning solution. The amount will depend on the size of your bong. Half a cup is a good starting point but you will need to experiment.
- Some people use rubbing alcohol, some people use cleaning products like Simple Green (not recommended), some prefer natural products like vinegar, and others prefer something with a good taste like Listerine.
- Alternatively, you can use something like Formula 420, in which case skip the salt. Pour it in and proceed as normal.
