I've boiled my pipe before, and even though the water doesn't look at all appetizing, boiling should kill off all the germs and bacteria that may exist in the water, making it drinkable. Has anyone tried this before? What was the result? Did you get baked off your ass? Did you get sick?
If you believe this isn't a feasible option, do you have any additional suggestions this you find more feasible? My pipe isn't very big at all, so maximum resin extraction is important. I've tried scraping in the past, but I'm trying to avoid that avenue because it yielded very little resin for me to smoke.
Thanks for the help.
