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.
