Steps in Cleaning the Glass Pipe
After you have gathered the tools, you’re now ready to start cleaning a glass pipe. Follow these steps to clean your pipes and get rid of the nasty debris and residue.
Step 1: Pour some salt into the water pipe
Start the process by pouring some salt onto the stem and the bowl of your pipe. Pour a generous amount of salt but not too much or else the rubbing alcohol can’t pass through because it will be blocked.
Step 2: Pour in the Rubbing Alcohol
Pour in the rubbing alcohol. Then plug the mouthpiece and joint of your water pipe. Lightly shake the pipe to combine the salt and the rubbing alcohol. Shake for some time till you notice the debris has been removed. It should be easy to note this since most of the pipes are made of clear glass. Note: Using a high percentage of alcohol helps you keep your water pipe bacteria, virus, and fungi-free.
Step 3: Rinse and Clean
Using warm water, rinse out the salt and rubbing alcohol mixture. If you still see the build-up and dirt, use q-tips to reach these areas. Don’t forget to clean the corners.
If there is still significant buildup after this step, soak your water pipe in a rubbing alcohol bath overnight. This process of soaking overnight will help clean the tricky areas like the bowl and slides.
Step 4: Rinse again
Rinse your water pipe again with warm water. After that, you’re done with the cleaning process. Congratulations! You’re ready to use your water pipe again.
