Default Re: Question about after taste...

i have noticed on the myas (and i assume it would be the same for any other brass hookah that has raw brass in the stem) that you get a bad smell that builds up and gives a horrid taste if you dont clean it enough or well.

i found that scrubbing (like hard core scrubbing with a brush and dish soap that builds a huge lather) works well, just may need to rinse and re brush a few times to make sure the soap is all gone, then smell it, if you still have some weird smell use lemon and or baking soda and that should kick it out well.

check each piece individually, smell it and inhale through it and see if you get a weird taste (not set up and not like with a bowl going on it) if you get a taste on a part that means thats your part that needs more cleaning
