Exclamation Cleaning A Vortex Bowl

alright so I've been smoking JM's out of my Vortex bowl and its getting pretty ?gunked? up. The fine cut of JM's is clogging all the little holes around the nipple and I can't scrub it clean. Any ideas on how to clean this sucker? Can I boil it? I need suggestions.
Thanks.

I see a logical fallacy in your statement, sir, and I will NOT stand for it!

Boiling it should be fine.

What I do is put the bowl in a cup and cover it with rubbing alcohol, cover and it sit for a couple of hours. Then I put it in a cup of hot but not boiling water and let it sit for an hour. No gunk, no smell. I do this after about 5 or sessions.

Note: You should clean out the old moassel after every use and scrub it with warm soapy water and a sponge after each use.

i personaly clean my hookah and everything i used thoughly after each session, i normally clean the hoses with a hose under pressure, and i let the other stuff soak for about an hour in hot water, every so often ill add baking soda or some other misc cleaner, about every 4-8 sessons.

with jm's i havent had much of a problem in a vortex. i just take a knife to the holes when i'm done. boiling the bowl then putting a pinch of baking soda on top makes the water rapidly fizz for a second and that seems to help really well with getting shit off the bowl. (out of context)

i always wash mine out with real hot water .. sometimes letting em soak for a while in it ...

but i rotate between two vortex bowls ... so one will be soaking or drying while the other one is being used ...
