Default A different way to clean your hookah.

Just thought I would share this but I use denture cleaning tablets to clean my hookah. I fill the base with cool water and then pop in 1-2 tablets depending on the size and let them dissolve. Then I use a brush and scrub away. I then pour some of the liquid down the stem and scrub it out. Finally I rinse everything out thoroughly. It leaves no aftertaste that I can tell and the vase is absolutely odorless.

If you want a fresh hookah, this does the trick.

sounds like a good idea, plus off brand tablets like this are pretty cheap at walmart.

i wonder if effervescent tablets would work too? or are they the same thing? (aka, alka-seltzer)

Never thought of using those before. I'll have to pick up a small box to see how it works out. Thanks for the tip!

No those wont work because they're medicated and have flavorings, salt and sweetners in them and will just make a mess. I've done this a couple times on both a mya and MZ hookah and as far as I can tell there is no damage to the finish. As far as a brass syrian goes I'm unsure but I would have to doubt there would be any harm done. The only thing in these tablets is a disinfectant and a deodorizer and if their gentle enough to use on dentures I doubt they would do any harm on metal and glass.

Like efferdent, they're fizzy tablets you drop in water and they dissolve. People use them to clean and deodorize their dentures, retainers, etc...

Its a pretty good idea... but i think mine is better:

I went to Petsmart and picked up 2 of those glass-sucker-fish and i just let them chill in there for awhile and they clean the shizz out of the base. I even leave 'em in there when i smoke. I never have funky tastes from previous flavors so it's all good

But I like the denture-tablet idea... i think i'll add it in there with the fish and it'll be EXTRA clean ;p

I think this wins for the most far-out method to clean a hookah vase. If the vase is clear this would look awesome! But I this the fish would die if you put the tablets in with them.
