Does anybody know a non-toxic, household friendly, formula for bong cleaning?

    high times was featuring a new product called the buddy...
    it uses high powered magnets w/ a scour pad. you put the scrubby inside the glass and move it around with another magnet on the outside of the bong...you could probably make it yourself, but it only costs 10-12 dollars...

      sheesh....when I was using those things (my stepbrother had this really cool one with the naked lady kneeling with the skull between her legs)....we didn't clean them. Maybe that explains a few things.......

        they get to tasting kind of rank if you don't...
        plus, eventually you face clogging, and nobody wants to fight too hard for a hit.... ;)
        • also, cleaning for plastic bongs and glass bongs are different. If you have plastic, it will definitely hold the smell of whatever you used to clean it much longer. Try to use as little chemicals as possible.

            i agree slurpee, i have had that problem before! (yech, bad memory), the bong buddy is supposed to be safe for your plastic too... i thought it looked really neat, it even has a little stash spot built into the cleaning handle...
  • Effordent denture cleaning tablets have reportedly worked well in both hookas and bongs.

    Non toxic and I believe they won't mar the finish if the glass or metal is particularly nice.

    I've used it to clean silver jewelry in a pinch .
    • interesting...thanks!

        2 methods- old school-ice, water, lemon, swirl, like cleaning coffee pots in the restaurant waitress days
        2nd way-(chemical, very small amt.) stuff called wink-gets out everything and even fills in dings and pits, scratches etc. from high heat.

    also if you have any fingernail polish remover put your smaller pieces in a bag and add some, soak for about 15-20 minutes, rinse and whalla!
  • 91% isopropyl alcohol, kosher salt. Supposedly the same essential ingredients as the over-the-counter stuff (420 cleaner). I believe it's best to use kosher (no iodine) because it's safer for the glass--doesn't pit it or anything. Don't boil anything that's made from recycled glass, or it will crack for sure (I know from experience :-(

      Could always get a new bong...

        or better yet, make one....
        • Well, lil' missy, I've macgivered me up plenty o' bongs and pipes and doodah rolls but I finally got myself an artisanal, bee-yootiful glass water pipe that's worth keepin' clean....; ) Gimme a shout out and I'll show it to you, along with my etchings....
          • Unsu...
             
            well then!!
            i have several of the above mentioned water products, once you go glass, you never go back...until it breaks that is!
            j/k
            • Unsu...
               
              I do the salt (not table) and mint alcohol thingy after I bought some product for $25 bucks and then read the ingredients. doh.

              De-resinates well if I let it sit and stew for a while before I start swishin' it around.

                i have just been informed by tribe (Terms of Use dip-wad functionary) that this kind of discussion is not tolerated....you have to use code, cuz they are all a bunch of uptight double standard bastards
                disclaimer: bastards was not meant as an expletive, simply as a vocabulary term to describe parentage

                  Isn't a Bong just a smaller version of the Gong, like they used to use on that stupid show. The glass ones I hear make a surprising "tinny" sound. A friend in an Afro-pop/Eurasian/CW band uses one...

                    And they tend to get dirty easily, and are hard to clean...

                      glass b-gongs are hard to clean!! although i am to understand they are popular because you can achieve higher octaves than the standard gong
                      • what???

                        a bong is a water pipe to get high with (smoke weed) and a gong is for chinese ceremonies and the gong show. capish?

                          do you, like NOT know how to play along???? ;) j/k, truly
                          i am on a cesorship rampage, one of the tribe mooks was harassing me...apparently he is smug, full of himself and not afraid to piss inyour cheerios, oh and he doesn't like boobies...if you have a penis it is okay to show your butt, or a nipple, but the women folk have to stay covered from head to foot...so i guess i'm off to find an e-burkha....blag don't mind me....i have a penchant for ranting every now and again...
                          • so will i get the boot if i say i smoke pot or like bongs or that i dont like hasselhoff in a thong (not to be confused with a bong or gong)

                            i hate censorship, if im to be censored i would start my own tribe called uncensored DIY do it yourself, censorship is for george dubya not for tribe!

                              oh, don't get me wrong, it wasn't the moderator for this tribe!!!it was an official tribe enforcer....and no, you have a penis so it's okay for you (probably)
                              *evil grin*
                              no harm no foul, just typing to whoever will listen venting as per usual...
                              this is what the Herr TOU (terms of use) sent me, among other things

                                            To all those listening that don't approve. Here is the first episode of the last comment of todays post on nothing.

                                            I heard something that I think is something to note that will be hinted at later. I think.

                                            "Sooner or later a fool will prove greater than the proof, even in a foolproof system." Dr. E. Teller

                                            From dictionary dot com

                                            bong1
                                            A deep ringing sound, as of a bell.
                                            To cause to sound with a deep ringing noise.

                                            bong2
                                            A water pipe that consists of a bottle or a vertical tube partially filled with liquid and a smaller tube ending in a bowl, used often in smoking narcotic substances. ( and used for tobacoooo Assholes).

                                            I will, from here on out, refer to a bong as "the tobaco smoking bong of my younger years".

                                            Or is it Billa-BONG, they make glass stuff don't they?

                                            Not a partaker of the narcotic substances myself, I use my BONG to get bonged on beer, so maybe I should call it "My beer vesile". It makes for an intersting conversation piece while talking to the park rangers. If use properly, it will allow a sufficient amount of air to be intruduced while allowing for maximum flow into the oral cavity.

                                            This was fun, what was I saying, oh yeah "let's go ride bikes"

                              Okay, I'm new here...and I joined just to laugh at this post. You all ROCK.

                              P.S. Don't use alcohol in a plastic "water-pipe for tobacco use only", it can cause hairline cracks all over it.

    Ever get you bong cleaned? How does it sound now? Getting that special high-pitched note out of it now?
    • I've been playing the gong so much, banging the gong so much it needs another rubbin' an' scrubbin'. I used ice and rice. It worked out nice. Salt and water and rice and ice. Rinsed it out and washed it twice. The grunge came clean; a hard, clear ding, ding, ding....
