You gotta be careful about putting chemicals into your smokeware, man. Just assume that even tiny amounts of shit get left behind even after the most thorough rinses. How much garbage do you really want to put into your lungs? :( This is why I always just stick to salt + iso alchy. Nothing but!!

Washing dishes and then eating off of them is a little bit different than inhaling directly from it, in my opinion. I also don't think that it's possible for anything to be left behind as much as I rinse my tubes. But if there was anything left behind I'd rather inhale pure alcohol + salt rather than that plus whatever they put in commercial degreasers like purple power and simple green.

Either way, whatever works for you. I was just stating my opinion and what I use!! :smoking:

Well the only reason I was askin is it is biodegradable, which I think that's the only cleaning product I've ever seen that in biodegradable lol so it must be must less harsh then anything else. Even regular handsoap isnt biodegradable.

Goo gone...






really!?!

LOL i know man, well I looked at it at a store and it had a bunch of little warning labels and shit like "Dont ingest" "Dont get in eyes" "Dont get on skin" so I was like "nahhh man i'm good"

Goo gone sounds like a bad idea...
Either use ISO and salt, Simple green, or Grunge Off Super Soaker.

Or use simple green as a pre rinse to ISO and salt, it works pretty well. Just mix the SG with some water and shake it in your piece for a minute then dump that and use iso and salt.

i would never put goo gone in my glass. you can dilute the simple green with some water i guess, people say they use that, but be careful because some labels have been eaten off tubes by it.

like NYC said tho, grunge off is the best. you can order a case of 12 for $100 and that will last you at least a year.

glass is non porous it really doesnt matter what u put in it as long as u rinse it...occassionally i rinse with lacquer thinner, which is HIGHLY toxic, but I rinse like a madman, it smells like absolutely nothing afterwards, and you would be able to smell the thinner if it was leaving any on.

simple green is nice because I have a cup full of it and i drop my slide in after use and rinse it after an hour and its nice and clean, i dont have to whip out the iso + salt like ive been doing the past 4 years...

also simple green does not take off labels no matter how hard you try.

simple green rocks but be careful, it can remove labels. i'd think this would be much more true with goo gone.

Well I guess with the exception of some glass companies but aren't labels usually on the outside of the glass? I guess i better not clean my sheldon black pieces with SG.

Not on downstems and slides. Some people still manage to get their cleaner on the outside of their tube though.

LOL EVERYTHING is made up of chemicals, our bodies, things we put in/on them, and the objects around us are all full of chemicals. You just have to figure out which are toxic and which can be beneficial, etc.
Off topic:
I'm wondering if Simple Green really removes hard water stains though.

So you'd rather let your food directly absorb and transport potentially harmful chemicals than have them come into indirect contact via the air/smoke mix from the tube? That's not logical.


Wow, I think you read a little TOO hard into that one, bud! I am COMPLETELY aware that glass is not permeable by any liquid you might use to clean your glassware. Also, I don't see where I said anything about ingesting any foods that have been soaked in any type of harmful chemicals.

I'm aware that I'm not a book of vast knowledge and I may not always be politically correct, but damn, Sinse! :smoking: Your two cents have been dually-noted. I would've taken to your advice a little more had you not have come off like such an elitist asshole! :P I'll say it again, though. Whatever works for you!!
