Re: Hookah sessions no longer tasteful.
Don't wash with soap. Try hot water and baking soda, lemon juice, white vinegar, or a combination of baking soda and lemon juice/white vinegar. You can add flour to thicken it up into a paste if you need to scrub something down.
If you do wash with soap, rinse the living hell out of it with warm/hot water. Soap leaves residue and doesn't taste good when smoked.
