Default Re: Proper Hookah Cleaning

I've used a dishwasher before to clean my base and bowls when I'm too lazy to clean them by hand.. There's posts here on how to clean a hookah.. But here's my method.

Base- fill with 95% water, 5% lemon juice, and sea salt. HOT WATER to dissolve the salt. Stir and let sit for a half hour or so..

Stem- Plug down stem. 95%water, 5%lemon juice, and a pinch of sea salt. Shake vigorously.

Purge valve and hose port- Run hot water and lemon juice through them.

This is an intense deep cleaning.. I do about twice a month in my bathtub.

"little" cleaning after smoke usually includes running water through the stem and rinse out the base.
