How To Clean Your Pipes With Household Ingredients
If you’re like most smokers, you probably have a favorite glass piece. Maybe it’s the first one you ever bought. Maybe it was a gift. Perhaps you just bought a new piece that expresses your inner style and you’ve used it so much it isn’t even the same color as your aura anymore. We can’t have that, Indigos.
If you want to shine your light to maximum effect and offer a nice clean toke to your friends, you need to clean your glass. With this easy glass cleaning hack there is zero reason to choke down nasty tasting hits ever again.
Time for the 101. By the way, this costs less than $10 from start to finish.
How To Clean Your Pipes With Household Ingredients: Don’t Do This!
Ever had a friend tell you to pop that resin filled piece into a kettle of water and boil it on the stove? That sounds like a decent idea at first, and using a nice hot water flush on the end can help. The problem with boiling your glass is that it makes a much bigger mess than you started with.
Want your house to stink like the smell of a thousand forgotten bongs? Anxious to ruin your kettle forever? If that’s your gig, give the boil method a shot. It’s not for me, however. Once was more than enough.
Another tried and true glass cleaning method is to just scrape that ish. Save the resin for a rainy day and get puffing. It can be pretty satisfying to sit down and get scraping. Additionally, it can distract you from the pathetic lack of stash if that’s your situation. Overall, it’s messy and won’t really get your bowl clean as a whistle.
It’s almost useless on bongs.
Finally, you can shell out some cash for a cleaner made to degunk your pipes, but there is a better way to get them just as clean. It’s time to DIY with Blazed Again.
How To Clean Your Pipes With Household Ingredients: The Instructions
You just need two products and this method and a container. The beauty is in the simplicity.
Gather the following:
- isopropyl alcohol
- A container with a lid that you can throw away when you’re done. Coffee cans and takeaway containers work well. I have also used a zipper storage bag in a pinch.
Combine everything in the container and don’t bother measuring. Put as much salt in as you can spare and dump enough alcohol to submerge your piece. The lid is just to cut down on the smell of the alcohol and keep it from evaporating as quickly.
Soak for at least 6 hours or overnight for best results.
Want to clean a bong? This is a bit trickier. Unless you want to get a bucket which you totally can do, you’ll want to plug the whole in the bong where the slide goes and pour your mix inside. Cotton balls or corks will work well enough to do the job.
After your pipe soaks, rinse it in hot tap water. You will observe that most of the gunk flushes right down the drain. Try using a cotton swab, baby wipe, or perhaps paper towel to perform a bit of detailing work.
Ideally, you need to dry the pipe of yours before you use it. If there’s a little bit of water inside it is not the end of the world, however.

The only thing left to do is admire your beautiful piece and have a super clean toke. Cheers!
