Question How to Clean Mya Hoses

As some of you may already know, I recently purchased the new Mya Saray hose with the 18" handle and mistook it for a washable hose. Is there any way I can clean this hose without ruining it?

You don't...non-washable hoses are good for building flavor. I have ones I use for lighter fruit flavors and others for heavier more intense ones. I usually fold them over and beat them a few times to knock any loose build-up and then blow them out.

just blow through it before and after every session. Smack it on the ground (the flexible middle section, not handle and tip that plugs into hose port) a couple times and blow through it after every couple sessions.

keep it to similair flavours..
like you smoke fruity light minty flavours in it for example.. But not heavy stuff like coconut or earl grey and not stuff like rose or cardamom...
get another hose for that or get a washable hose to use with these strange flavours insetad..

Make sure to blow through it before and after every session. Other than that beating the crap out of it after letting it dry out for a while and blowing through is the best way to keep things from going nasty on you.

i am a fan of sucking out a hose after a session because i feel blowing in to it put moisture in it that will cause issues later (just my personal view on it). if you suck/blow out the hose after you will be pretty good. you will get a little ghosting carrying over but it usually gets covered quick once your bowl lights up

Are you assuming that the breath you produce has more water in it than the hookah smoke? If so I suggest you go see a doctor... or Shaman. I'm not sure who would be better suited to solve that problem.

no what i am saying is that by sucking it out your pulling out moisture instead of putting it in, i know the smoke has moisture in it.

you breath out a lot of moisture in a day (i think the number was close to a liter per day but i cannot find it now, gota love murphy) so in comparison to the moisture in the tobacco you surely dont even have an ounce of moisture in the tobacco you smoke (tangiers excluded) and you are not picking up a noticeable amount of water from the vase. thats all probably a moot point though because if you clear it out by sucking vs if you put the moisture in by blowing probably is a measurable difference
