For my base i use ivory hand soap, i put it on the inside of the neck of the base and then the hot water rushing from the sink makes it foam right up and then a hookah brush makes it sparkle. i then rinse count-em five times to make sure there is zero soap left in the base.
for the stem, i use a solution of 20% lemon juice and hot water, if the lemon juice lingers i wash it again with baking powder to counteract that.
the hose i follow hookah-shisha.com's how to clean a nammor step for step and i make sure to let the hose dry for a full 24 hours
