Your bongs and water pipes are going to get dirty when you use them a couple of times. So what to do? You wash them.
If you let the dirt accumulate, your bong is soon going to look disgusting, it will have a horrible smell, and it will most definitely ruin the taste of your flower.
If you want to keep things gangster, you can make do with a scrubber, so you’ll have to scrub your bong or water pipe whenever it gets dirty.
The thing with scrubbing stains off your bong, especially if it is made of glass, is that it loses its shine and starts fading, and then it won’t be long before the damn thing looks milky instead of shiny.
Bong Cleaning Solutions
With bong cleaner solutions, you have a rapid system of spotlessly cleaning your bongs, and at the same time preserving their looks.
It doesn’t matter whether there’s a build-up of tar or resin inside your bong, but by using bong cleaner solutions, you easily wash it off.
When you’re done using the bong cleaner solution, you simply rinse the bong with a stream of hot water, and the bong becomes fresh and sparkly.
Bong cleaners are an advanced and safer cleaning system than brushes; brushes typically create micro-cracks on the bong, and these cracks hold on to tar and resin, making things dirty and risky.
Of course, sometimes you will meet an especially obstinate stain, and you’ll be forced to reach for the scrubber.
But if you make the habit of regularly washing your bong, it becomes easy to keep your bong spotlessly clean and avoid a build-up of hardcore stains.
