Default My bambino smelled funky today =/

Alright guys it's been a couple weeks since I smoked with friends and when we got together today I grabbed my bambino and it smelled funky. I've been just rinsing out my bambino after each session so I didn't really get a good thorough cleaning. I've been doing this since I got it and it just smelled funky especially near the bowl grommet. I'm afraid there might be rust somewhere in the hose port or the purge valve. Should I just do that baking soda and lemon juice+brush technique? Will the smell go away after I do it? I don't really have the materials but if it will work I'll be sure to get them ASAP. Thanks HP community!

P.S. I searched..

That should take care of most of it. I do the same thing but that's because I'm fairly lazy. Rinse after each, clean once a week.

I usually don't but I do have a brush that will run through the ports... just head to wal-mart and in the infant section a baby bottle brush works awesome for the base of the bambino and it also has a small brush in the handle that works epically for the ports. I only clean my ports when I do my weekly baking soda, lemon juice cleaning.

I think that could be your problem. I ran a brush through my QT's ports and got out a lot of gunk, after having it for over a month (I smoke a lot though) and so then I did it regularly.

scrub it with dawn soap and water, rinse, then take white vinegar, fill the stem and plug it with you finger, let it sit 30-60 seconds, it will come out really green probably, rinse and repeat as needed, that is the best and cheapest way i have found, better than lemon/baking soda

yeah, its just resin build up... I have the mya qt and I do a full clean with a scruber before each use. otherwise the buildup effects your flavor and not to mention that horrible smell

I also like to keep a brush IN the stem of a hookah when not using it, tends to make cleanup a little easier

honestly i wouldnt do that, it would trap moisture in there leading to more corrosion and at least rusting the brush. now if both were bone dry then maybe but idk

clean out your hose ports, scrub, use some baking soda, clean with beer if you can....
