Cleaning the Hookah
After reading many posts on the cleaning of our beloved friends, I am a bit confused as to the correct method. Lemon juice, vinegar, rice, baking soda, alcohol, acetone, hot water, cold water, etc... Whatever happened to good old hot water and soap? Are there some exotic compounds generated during the smoking phase that defy normal cleaning methods?
For my own preferences, I fill the sink with hot water and Dawn detergent. Using a scrubby and a pipe brush, everything comes out clean and not smelling like anything. Am I doing this right?
