How to clean your bong

Bongs are a great way to smoke weed because the water works to filter out a lot of the stuff you don’t want to be inhaling that comes with the smoke. Having a clean bong ensures that you get the best filtration, flavor, and makes for a better high. However, if you are using a dirty bong you’re defeating the purpose of the filtration by allowing all of the gunk from the smoke to sit inside the bong and be inhaled. 

Even if you change the water in your bong but the bong itself is still coated in residue, the stuff you want filtered out just gets inhaled anyway. This is why it’s important to clean your bong frequently and try to dump the water out after every use. A dirty bong is a breeding ground for bacteria and mold which is why Strains Dispensary is here to enlighten you on how to properly clean it and avoid breathing in unwanted substances.

Steps For Cleaning Your Bong

  1. Carefully take apart your bong by removing the bowl and stem. Dump out the dirty water and give it a quick rinse with clean water. 
  2. Fill the chamber with isopropyl alcohol but make sure to leave a little empty space. Next, add in two or three tablespoons of coarse salt. 
  3. Cover the top of the bong, shake it vigorously, and then let it sit for about 10 minutes. 
  4. Discard the solution, wipe down the inside with a paper towel or a bottle brush. 
  5. Rinse the inside with clean water, cover the top, and shake again. Empty the contents and repeat these steps as many times as necessary. 
  6. Clean the bowl and stem by adding them into a ziplock bag filled with isopropyl alcohol and salt. Shake the bag and then let it sit for 10 minutes. 
  7. Give the bag one more shake and then rinse the pieces with water until they are clean.
