How do i clean a pipe?

Discussion in 'Apprentice Marijuana Consumption' started by MJHolcombe, Oct 7, 2010.

  1. I have a medium size metal pipe that can be broken down into 5 separate peices. What is the best way to clean it?
  2. boil it
  3. What?
    put it in a pan and simmer it?
  4. Yeah make sure there are no air bubbles in the pipe when you boil them though. Also be careful when taking them out. Too fast and they will break. Let them cool. Any resin thats left can easily be taken off with a pipe cleaner.
  5. No it makes ur house smell and if its a lot of resin will ruin the pots. Use isopropyl alcohol 70%+ can be found at any pharmacy and or Walmart. Put this in a bag with about 1/4 salt 2/4 alcohol and shake. Works like a dream.

  6. Will disinfectant work?
  7. Yup, for about 15 minutes, stirring constantly. Add salt and pepper to taste!

    Or just buy some 91%+ Isopropyl Alcohol at a drugstore/super store, put your pipe pieces in a ziploc bag, pour in enough ISO to cover pieces, shake in bag for a while then drain it and repeat until iso doesn't turn brownish.

    If you want to recover the resin, just pour the shitty brown iso alcohol on a plate and let it evaporate, then scrape the shit off the plate and there's your resin.
  8. Nah you really want Isopropyl. Disinfectants can be harmful.
  9. It's metal. You can take it apart. Why not just scrape it? It's not glass so you don't have to worry about scratching it.

    Edit: Use a paper clip or something for scraping
