I need some tips and techniques for keeping an 18 inch bong clean. Starting this thread to share what people do besides the rubbing alcohol and salt. Because I don't want to have to use rubbing alcohol to clean it everytime.

Thanks

Use water instead or mouthwash.

Rinsing the bong after every use and using fresh water also helps loads.

I use 100% acetone and salt. I can clean my bongs in about two minutes if I do it every week. No need for anything else.

If the bong smells funky I'll use lemon windex to take the smell away.

I like to get a big pot a boil it in there.... just make sure to wad up some tin foil on the bottom so that it doesnt directly touch to bottom or it might crack.

Ok, I know you said you dont really like the rubbing alcohol and salt, but if you perfect it its way better. I used to hate cleaning my bong until I watched a hashbean420 video on youtube. I already knew the technique, but watching him showed me how to make it efficient. First off, I never used enough salt. I would put like a table spoon of salt in. I watched and you gotta put alot in, I used like 4 tablespoons and it was clean in 30 seconds. Secondly, a much cleaner and less wasteful way to clean with alcohol is to get a spray bottle and put it on mist. I seriously cleaned my bong for the first time in 3 weeks and using a spray bottle and alot more salt (4 Tbs) and it was clean in 30 seconds. Normally I clean way more often and it was wayyy harder. Seriously, watch this video and see how easy it works and give it another try.

Theres a reason that a lot of people use salt and rubbing alcohol...it works really well. I've had my bong for over a year and if you saw it you would think i bought it yesterday. Granted i clean it everyday but still, thats my theory. If you don't let it get dirty, it wont be hard to clean. However, seeing as you don't want to use rubbing alcohol and salt, me and my buddy were experimenting the other day and found that if you use CLR, everything comes right off with pretty much no effort required at all. It doesn't leave any tastes or smells in the bong afterwards either if you rinse well and it is safe. They even recommend it for use in coffee pots. If you can drink out of things you use it on, im guessing you can smoke out of em too.

yeah i just recently bought a spray bottle and alchohol and alot of rock salt and shit for it, cleaned the shit out of all my bongs they all look new as hell. I clean them everyday now just because they looks so damn good and it works so damn well and fast. Hashbean is fucking pro. I knew how to do it, but it never worked as good as the way hashbean showed me.

I've tried a few different cleaners and the best I've found is 420. I have pieces that look like they've never been used! You can get it at just about any head shop or hippie type shop.

Guess what 420 Cleaner is made out of? Iso alcohol and salt basically. Save your money and head out to the grocery store.
