I always wash my setup before my sessions. After a session i'm just too tired, to wait till my bowl gets cold, and than clean everything. I just put it away, and on the next day (usually i smoke 1 bowl every day) while i'm litting my coals i clean my hookah with water, set up everything, and than i'm ready. The cleaning and the setup together is about 10 minutes, or maybe a little bit less. Than my coals are ready, and i can smoke
Btw, i wanted to ask: is that a problem, that i wash my hookah before my sessions, and when i start to smoke, there are some water in my stem? Does it affect the smoke, or something?
