Re: First solo session!
Cool. I smoke solo almost all the time. As for cleaning the hose, when you have rinsed it well, shake it around vigorously to shake out any excess water droplets, then hang it and let it air dry. I do this with all of my hookah hoses and haven't ever had a problem with them. Smoke happy.
