Before we get into the different products to clean a bong, we've got to know why a clean bong is important! Every time you take a rip, hoot or blast you introduce new nasty resins, residues and plant matter into your glass and water. This means each hoot will have some of the previous pull through. This will result in the hoot being less flavourful, even a bit stale, and giving you a less effective hit. We recommend cleaning your glass at least every week, and even up to as often as after every sesh. Just changing the water each session is an effective way to keep your hoots fresh.
Bongs are generally left sitting with water inside. When left too long, these damp pools are the perfect place for mold to grow. Since smoking mold is not recommended, keeping a clean bong is important. In order to keep your glass safe from disgusting spores, it is important to keep it clean, dry, and stored away in a safe place. Cleaning your bong between smoke sessions will ensure each time you take a hit, you get the maximum potency and ultimate experience.
So let us show you some of the more popular bong cleaners that we here at Shell Shock use. Each one is a bit different and usually it's personal preference that determines what cleaner to use.
