Default How To Clean Unwashable Hoses

OK, lots of people always ask how to clean them. And some of us do not have a hose for every flavor, so here is what you can do

-Smack the hose around on stuff to get rid of debris inside hose.
-Air Compressor/ Vacuum. Put the hose up to the hookah hose and Suck/Blow
- Buy one of these brushes used for aquariums and boats. http://www.westcoastpetsupply.com/2/...d-Flexi-Brush/

-Do not use any water in unwashable hoses. This will only shorten the hoses lifespan because you risk rusting the metal on the inside.

I use my air compressor a lot for cleaning mine. It's good for telling when they're going bad, especially when clouds of dust come out of the hose every time your blow through it.

There is ONE way of using water and detergent but some of you won;t like it and it can be tricky ... .fill teh hose with water and baking soda to remove lingering smells . .smack it around while keeping it plugged then after you rinse and blow all the water out. ..you tape a funnel to one end and rig you blow drier so it COMPLETELY dries everything. . .if this is done right you can get like a month out of an old hose before you taste rust.

ALSO. . do not leave metal hoses connected to hookahs over night . .the moist air rusts it.

Oh and I forgot - i saved 2 hoses this way ( recycled would be a better word) cut off teh mouth pieces and part that connects to the stem .. and bought some PVC rigid hose from an electric supply store - the kind that electricians use to run wires thru the wall and keep the dry and safe from compression. It's dirt cheap, washable, and easy 2 decorate with a hose cozy. ( like the kind we see Sambooka using all the time)
