my friends rig didnt get cleaned often, he would brush it every week or 2 but noting more since he was on active duty and was out doing patrols/SARs/etc all the time. one time when i was home and went over to visit i offered to clean his rig and used lemon juice on it and it came out a nasty green (i filled up the stem and let it soak for 30-60 seconds). vinegar pull the gunk off better but doesnt freshen as perfectly but you wont notice the difference when smoking and its a boat load cheaper. after you clean it once as long as you clean it often it will be fine. i clean mine before every session (i smoke 2 bowls a night usually) and when im lazy i just rinse and then fill the stem with vinegar and rinse again, maybe a little brush. if im not lazy i add a scrubbing with dish soap before the vinegar. takes about 5 mins
