Re: tyed in knots about hoses
For a second I thought your title said "Tying knots in hoses" maybe I should read more than every other word(JK). It sucks that this happened to you. I find it easier to assume that every hose is washable until told otherwise. Depending on the smoke shop, I've find that the people do not know the ins and outs of the pipes they're selling. I'd take it back and ask if they can swap out the hose but this is a slim chance. Its still worth a shot if you're going back to buy tobacco.
