Re: A clean hookah. Help!
Here is what I do:
Wash the base with dish soap and hot water (using brushes). Rinse thoroughly. Add mix of hot water, lemon juice, and baking soda. Let sit. Rinse, rinse, rinse. Same thing for stem.
If your hose is washable, swill a shot or two of vodka through the hose. Follow with hot water, baking soda, and lemon mix. Rinse thoroughly.
