How to clean your glass pipe or bong
Many people like to keep their glass pieces relatively clean, or enjoy reaping the benefits of scraping their bowels for resin to smoke. I can scrape my bowel pretty clean, but there is only so much you can get out. The end result is usually a pipe that wont look right until you get more resin in it to give it back its color. And every time you do this it gets harder to scrape clean because of the old stuff hardening.
If you follow this technique you can get your pipe as clean as it was the day you bought it every time, plus it will always be easier to scrape your pipe the next time.
Scrape your pipe as cleanly as you want, or not at all, some people don't enjoy smoking their resin so they can skip this step.
Fill your pipe with a teaspoon or two of salt, depending on pipe size. You can use regular table salt, sea salt (preferred) or rock salt.
Plug the head of your bowel with your finger or thumb, and pour rubbing alcohol, isopropyl alcohol, into the mouthpiece of your pipe.
Cover the mouthpiece with another finger or thumb and shake the pipe up and down vigorously but carefully, for a few minutes.
Dump out the waste and rinse thoroughly with tap water.
Repeat if needed until pipe is sparkling clean.

haha no lie, i've been doing this for years too...this is how i thought everyone did it.
i always scrape as much as i can
then boil water, take it off the heat, toss a pipe in
wait like thirty seconds, scrape again, and blow through the pipe... another round of resin to smoke once it dries!!! (throw it in an oil burner and free base resin, it doesn't suck as much as putting the flame right on it...)
Great thread, mogie.
"Simple Green" is a non-toxic cleanser/degreaser. I fill the bong up to 505 of water line, add in a little uncooked rice (acts as an organic abrasive... salt is groovy, too), plug the holes, and shake and shake and shake until the goo is gone. Then rinse, repeatedly (I do 3 or 4 rinses), dry, and smoke. I have been using it for years... one of many techniques I use, depending on what I have under the sink at the time.
I use the method you introduced for some time, but with a little twist - I heat my solution. I'll put all the contents (pipe or bowl - NOT BONG, plus alcohol + salt/rice) into a zip lock and nuke for 20-30 seconds. Remove, and shake shake shake the goo away. Rinse and ready.
BE CAREFUL...IF YOU OVER COOK THE SOLUTION THE MICROWAVE WILL STANK FOR A LONG TIME & ROOMATES WILL BE PISSED...
I choose to live and to Lie, kill and give and to Die,
learn and love and to Do what it takes to step through.
this also works if you let the salt, alchohol, and pipe soak in a plastic bag(for the extra dirty)
I can't believe the number of people that spend money on special cleaners. This is so much cheaper.
