Re: grommet question
Yea, i use olive oil on grommets. About once a month, i do a complete power clean, this involves baking soda, lemon juice/white vinegar in the base stem, all holes in hookah. And hoses are given a through beating with the tips cleaned with Q-tips. Then all grommets are coated on the outside with olive oil and the inside with water, that way it gets a better grip on the hookah, and it allows the bowl to slide in and out nice and easy like an asian guy doing an old granny.
