Re: Can you clean your hoses?
some hoses have a metal wire that runs thru them, so washing it with water would be a bad idea because then it would rust inside. these hoses are ones that are not washable. instead you have to go out and buy a new one. there is another category however that can be washed - no metal coil inside. most hookah sites will tell you which hoses are washable.
what i do when it comes to hose washing time is i run some water thru the hose, then plug both ends, shake it around a bit, then empty it and repeat.
