Re: Cleaning a Hookah
And in regards to the hookah and hose staining. I am no pro yet but from my experiences with my 2 non washable hoses and one washable. The non washable ones get stained by strong flavors like mint, lemonade, or other strong flavors. Even after say a few days or even a week they still keep that flavor whenever my next smoke session starts. Usually after 5 to 10 mins into my new smoke session the old flavor wears out and you get the new bowl's full flavor. In regards to the hookah itself, It will do the same unless you give it a quick rinse. I just do a quick rinse with water and use my brush on the stem and bam no left over scent!
Long winded yea....but hope it helps a lil.
