Re: Shisha in base
Relax- a little shisha dropping down the stem, and then into your water vase, is no problem. Sometimes a little juice dribbles down the stem, and the water changes color, also no problem.
If you have a problem with debris dropping down the stem, you can take a little steel wool, about the size of your little fingernail. Then roll it between your palms, until it is cylindrical in shape. Then place it in the top of your stem shaft, it will catch any debris that falls down. Then just discard the steel wool, when you clean the hookah.
