LoJack, unfortunately there is no way to avoid ghosting save for buying a washable hose or a few non-washables that will be dedicated to specific flavors. My advice would be until you can do that would be to stick with one specific set of flavors. In other words, I wouldn't smoke a coffee flavored shisha and then smoke watermelon flavor.
