Double ziploc bag it with rubbing alcohol and salt. Shake it up real good.

If you can't get it clean in a few minutes with shaking, place the bag into a bowl of hot water and let it soak in the hot alky. I cleaned the shit out of my bong slide that way this afternoon. :)

boiling it works really nicely if you have a big hole for large chunks of resin to come out...scraping works nice so does running rubbing alcohal through it.......i always boil mine but as of late i havent needed to clean my bowls so i dont know

The ziplock bag and isopsopyl alcohol + salt works wonders for me.

If you don't mind getting some nasty shit in your mouth (but it'll clean it great) put hydrogen peroxide , soap, or whatever you think is the best to clean with and dip the bowl in that stuff, and suck until it gets close to your mouth, then blow and suck a bunch so its going through fast and it gets everything real clean.

Like everyone else said, soak it it alcohol for a bit and salt helps clean those hard to reach areas.

Best way I have found to clean a glass pipe is to soak it in some denture cleaner stuff. Buy some of the cheap tablets at Wal-Mart and I usually use two of the tablets in a glass of warm water. Makes the pipe taste nice and clean too.

i've heard boiling the piece makes the glass weaker/more brittle after a while. i dunno if its true but i wouldnt risk it

you could also go and buy pyrex glass cleaner like bling or formula 420. that shit works nice, but then again so does salt and rubbing alcohol. i always put my piece in a tupperware and shake it up with salt and rubbing alcohol. it works wonders. you could also let it sit and soak in it too, that would probably make it even cleaner.

Boil hot water. Pour water in a container. Leave your piece in the container for 10mins. Works like a charm.

Edit: Boiling your piece shouldn't hurt it. The glass is molded at temperatures way over the boiling water temp..

I say the same thing every time. Water pick mouth cleaner filled up with alcohol and salt mixed into hot water, spray inside around with the highest setting / nossle.

Problem solved.

Put alcohol and salt in a bag and shake it up. Don't smoke nasty resin.
