Popular Methods for Cleaning a Bong
Cleaning a bong is essential to ensure it performs optimally and lasts a long time. Cleaning a bong is never fun, but it has to be done.
There are several methods of cleaning a bong, and each method varies in effectiveness and convenience.
Here are five different ways to clean your bong:
1. Salt and Alcohol Method
The salt and alcohol method is the most popular method used to clean a bong. It requires salt, rubbing alcohol, and hot water. Start by rinsing the bong with hot water to remove any loose debris. Next, add salt and rubbing alcohol into the bong. The amount of salt and rubbing alcohol depends on the size of the bong. Cover the mouthpiece and any openings with your hands and shake the bong to create a whirlpool effect for about two minutes. Let the solution sit for at least 30 minutes, then rinse the bong with hot water until all the solution is removed.
2. Lemon Juice and Vinegar Method
This method is an excellent Eco-friendly option if you are looking to get rid of any lingering odor in a bong with natural products. Combine lemon juice and vinegar in equal parts in a container big enough to hold the bong. Put the bong in the container and let it soak for several hours. Rinse the bong with warm water and dry it with a towel.
3. Baking Soda Method
If your bong has tough stains, you may need to mix things up and try a new method. The baking soda method is an effective way to remove stubborn stains, and it’s quite Eco-friendly. Start by filling your bong with hot water and leave a bit of room at the top. Next, add a few tablespoons of baking soda and let it sit for 30 minutes. Shake the bong to ensure the baking soda reaches all areas, dump the solution out and rinse with warm water.
4. Denture Tablets Method
A surprisingly effective method for cleaning a bong is by using denture cleaning tablets. They have the same stain lifting and sanitizing agents found in cleaning products for bongs. Fill the bong with hot water, add a couple of denture tablets, and let it sit for at least 30 minutes. Rinse the bong with warm water and dry it. Your bong will be sparkly-clean and smell great.
5. Dish Soap Method
Suppose you need a quick clean, then the dish soap method is a great way to get the job done fast. Add a few drops of dish soap to your bong, fill it with hot water, and start shaking the bong. The dish soap will reduce the surface tension and help break down any oils or stains quickly. Rinse the bong with warm water and dry it. If you use Eco-friendly dish soap to get the job done, even better!
The Bottom Line
Cleaning a bong is an essential part of maintaining its performance and durability. If you have ever felt a little intimidated or overwhelmed by the cleaning process, don’t worry!
With any of the Eco-friendly methods mentioned above, cleaning your bong has never been easier. Just remember to be gentle when cleaning and ask for help if needed.
