Default Pretty sure I just gagged on a mouthful of hose mildew

So I'm sitting down to smoke some Nakhla Mizo Mint, with the hose I use specifically for it, and when I start to inhale I get a big mouthful of black colored something! I was like "that was odd" and decide to look into it via the forums. Well, I had no idea that non-washable hoses could even freaking grow mildew but I found a post that said this can happen...

I washed it out just now and red and black stuff came out. I assume it's mildew.

Also, it's a good thing I have two hoses, but the other came with my Mya QT and I'm wondering is that one washable? I'm already guessing no so I might have to place an order tonight. If it isn't, is there anything I can use to clean it one last time before not washing it anymore?

Maybe try to use one the pipe cleaners you would use to clean out your hookah. it could knock some of the gunk out. Or take your hose and bang it in the ground then blow out all the debris.

Vinegar.
Cheap generic Vodka.
Baking Soda + Lemon Juice.

Any of the above soaked in your hose.

the black junk is a combo of the smoke residue and more so rust on the metal pieces. the non washable hoses get it.

the washable hoses are much better in this area

Bad. Bad newbie.

If the hose is giving you this issue that means it's not washable. DO NOT PUT ANY LIQUID IN A HOSE THAT IS NOT DESIGNED TO BE WASHABLE. If you do this it will ruin the hose. The hoses are designed of metal (not stainless) and leather. Both of those things react poorly to moisture.

Get a new hose. Get something washable. At this point it's beyond repair. The Mya hose is not washable either but it will treat you fine so long as it's properly cared for.

Oh and it's not mildew unless it tastes/smells like mildew. Trust me, you would know. It's rust and smoke residue.

YE, you got a mouthful of the good ol' rust my friend. Used to happen to an old MYA hose I had... A buddy of mine used it all the time and he washed the non-washable hose after each use. Pretty soon I started getting pieces of gunk in my mouth while smoking. After a few weeks at this I REALLY started tasting a metal taste and more gunk, I finally saw him wash out the hose that day and figured out the problem.

I'm sure you would definitely notice the REALLY bad taste and more than likely have breathing problems for the next couple weeks, or even the rest of your life, if it's black mold! Seriously though, that sucks really hardcore, sorry to hear about this.
