i wonder if effervescent tablets would work too? or are they the same thing? (aka, alka-seltzer)
No those wont work because they're medicated and have flavorings, salt and sweetners in them and will just make a mess. I've done this a couple times on both a mya and MZ hookah and as far as I can tell there is no damage to the finish. As far as a brass syrian goes I'm unsure but I would have to doubt there would be any harm done. The only thing in these tablets is a disinfectant and a deodorizer and if their gentle enough to use on dentures I doubt they would do any harm on metal and glass.
