Question My damn Nammor

So, I know when you first use the Nammor, it has that plastic taste to it. I ran warm water (maybe a lil hotter than warm but not super hot) and lemon juice through it to no avail. Do I really have to just wait it out and use it till its gone? It's so gross, I don't think I can stand it much longer.

I heard that it took multiple washings to get it out. So try that and then smoke some mint in it. If it is unbearable to smoke still, get a vacuum and put the vacuum hose on it and make it smoke it for you. But be careful, a vacuum has enough suction to pull up water from the base so when you put it on the hose, make sure there it is not a complete seal so the pressure doesnt get water in the hose, or the vaccuum.

Do not use hot water. If it feels warm to your skin it may still be too hot. The glue used to hold them together is pretty sensitive to heat and can lose it's grip if exposed to too much heat.

Regarding the flavor it may take a couple washings. Lemon juice is a really good idea if your seems to be sticking a little more than normal. don't wash it out after the lemon juice (sans baking soda) and it should at least help to mask the plastic flavor until it fully goes away. Though I do not claim that the prolonged exposure to a weak acid will not do harm. I can't promise either way.

I used vinegar to clean my Razan when I first got it. It seemed to do the trick. Just make sure you give it a good rinsing afterward.

yes, vinegar would work great. It smells strong, but it goes away as soon as you smoke.

I just hooked up an air compressor that I have and ran pressurized air through it stopping every now and again to take a dry drag until it was gone. Its frustrating I know, when I got mine all I wanted to do was smoke it but the 15 min worth of work paid off. Smokes like a dream now.

I had a plastic taste in my Razan for the first 5 smokes, probably more. It was very noticeable.

I wish I knew you could rinse that out!

bad choice

but any way use vinegar, use some baking soda, it takes a good amount of washes. try filling it and leaving it in for a few mins and just swish it back and forth. you wont get it 100% but you will get it a lot better. i know the first ones i got didnt seem to bad (i also didnt think QLs tasted bad though) but when i got my newer one i could barely use it even after washing it a lot (not only did it have a bad taste but it felt like my lungs were getting a tingling for it).

wash the shit out of it then smoke something super strong or tangiers (it seems to kill other tastes w/o ghosting)

honestly you just have to bear it out for acouple of sessions, my recomendation, use your cheap shisa as to not waste the good stuff, I don't know if vinager would help, if anything id take plastic over vinager any day... lol, and seriously watch out for the hot water... I had one just fall completly apart after some time the glue just complelty lets go... so room temp only... (if you let the smoke pass under your tounge it's not nearly as bad, a trick i learned from bad flavor combinations at the hookah bar...)
