Step 1- Put water in a large microwavable cup. Fill up with as much water as your bong/bubbler requires.
Step 2- Microwave this until hot, but not dangerous and not boiling (oooooooh, just thinking about it gets me aroused)
Step 3- Carefully pour the now hot water into your piece. If you're having trouble getting the water in or there is too much spilling, try using a kitchen funnel to get the water in. Some are even small enough for bubbler carbs!
Step 4- Quickly load the bowl and enjoy the soothing relaxation of hot cannabis smoke!
*for those worried about glass shattering via thermal shock, try this method instead:
Step 1B- Place bong under a bathtub or kitchen faucet. This will only work effectively if you can get water into your piece from under the faucet. If your piece is too big, you'll have to do some improvisation.
Step 2B- Turn the faucet on at a lukewarm temperature, and leave it on. (Your piece should be overflowing with water)
Step 3B- Now begin to gradually increase the temperature of the water to your desired caution. This is the step that prevents thermal shock, as all of the glass in the bong will be heated up along with the water.
Step 4B- When your bong is finally nice and hot with warm water, dump out access water until your water chambers are at normal, usable levels. This part can be tricky if your have percolators and such
Seriously, if you haven't tried hot bong water yet, give it a chance. You'll soon be looking at your ice pinchers like you don't know who the hell they are
