The Importance of Cleaning your Glass
We hope you’ve enjoyed our Back to the Basics series over the last few months! We sure have. We’ve discussed things like How to Roll a Joint, How to Choose the Right Edible, and Selecting a Vape Pen. To us, the most important thing is that you feel confident to enjoy weed!
Our last How To is the most important of all – keeping your glass clean. There’s a major difference in flavor when you toke from a clean piece. Think about it, none of the residue from your last toke (or the toke before that) is getting picked up and clouding the flavor your new bud.
How often does your gear need to be cleaned?
We’ll throw a question right back at ya – How often are you using it? Best case, your glass should be cleaned after each use. Second best, your glass should be cleaned once a week. And at least, your glass should be cleaned in between different strains. Changing your bong water frequently will help keep things clean.
This should go without saying, if you can see that it needs to be cleaned…it needs to be cleaned. The best thing to do is to get into a good routine. Try picking a day in the week and schedule time to clean them!
Tip: Have a few different pieces on hand to rotate and use while cleaning! Displaying your glass can also help with giving us a little motivation to keep them clean.
What do I clean my glass with?
We recommend using plant based cleaners if possible. Check out Mile High Cleaner! Try using Isopropyl Alcohol only when a more natural option isn’t doing the trick.
Let’s start by cleaning your bong:
- Empty out any water and flower that are in your bong.
- Pre-rinse with warm water.
- Pour your cleaning solution and use as directed.
- Before you break out the brushes, cover the openings and shake while your solution is working its magic.
- Rinse, rinse, rinse until sparkling clean. Repeat the process if necessary.
- Refill with fresh water right before use.
