Default What to do with a new KM?

My new KM will be arriving any time today. I can't wait to smoke from it, but first things first - do I have to do any cleaning before use?

If so, whats the best way of doing this. Does it need a quick bit of water then a dry down with a cloth or a proper deep clean?


Thanks

Kris

I would advice a deep clean with lemon juice and baking soda as the KM's gonna have a lot of gunk init depending on where you bought it from

I plug one end of mine and pour baking soda in then add lemon juice, usually foams and I do this in the bathtub btw, the plug the other side and swish it back and forth. Then I unplug both ends let it drain out and brush it thoroughly and rinse it with water. I do the same thing forr the hose port and purge valve but use a pipe cleaner to get in and scrub it.

I guess instead of lemon juice I could use vinegar? Bith will have the same reaction? Plus lemon juice is very very expensive here!
