Default Re: burnt bowl and cleaning

yeah dude, the line on the top of the bowl is called the carbon line. there's no harm or anything. you can remove it with an SOS pad if you'd like.

i use lemon juice in my hoses (i have washable hoses, make sure you do too). i use hot water and baking soda, lemon juice, or rock salt to clean the vase and stem. but most of the time i just wash it all out with hot water.

a good way to clean the bowl is to bring up a *** of water to a rapid boil, and with either a glove or a pair of like BBQ tongs; place the bowl in there for 5 mins. then take a teaspoon of baking soda (NO MORE!) and dump it on top of the water. it will bubble up then rapidly deteriorate. leave it for a couple more mins. makes your bowl brand new again.
