Ok good I mean mine is a really good quality syrian and was $90. When i bought it the head shop owner just warned me to not break it off or else the hookah would be unusable so I just gotta be careful. But for those that do have a weiled on stem how do you clean your shaft/downstem, can you just brush it normally or is there anything special?
