I was doing my first hookah cleaning, tolerating the smell of
Al-Waha 5 Stars half-burnt, when an idea hit me. I remembered
the bottle of rose water sitting in my kitchen pantry. So I
went and added some to the tap water I was cleaning my hookah
with. It made the job much better, and left my hookah smelling
fairly crisp and fresh. I think I'll do this again next time I clean.
I can get rose water rather cheap and easily around my way, it's
just a matter of going to the nearest East Indian grocery about
20 minutes away and paying just a couple dollars for the stuff.
Has anybody else tried cleaning their hookah with rose water?
I wonder how it might work in the base while smoking?
I guess it would depend on the shisha flavor?
