Default Removing stains...

Not as dubious as it sounds... my glass has got a sort of tide mark in it. Looks like a bit of a yellow stain from the dirty water. Quite surprised as it happened from leaving the hookah overnight before cleaning it!

I've tried getting a brush on it and warm water but can't shift it.

Any suggestions?

Yeah I'd been using vinegar with baking soda. In the end the stains came off after leaving the glass filled with warm soapy water over night

Fill the base with water and drop in some denture cleaner tabs. Depending on the size of your base, 1-3 tabs is fine. The bubbles break up everything and anything that you may have on your base and get rid of the smells too.

I wonder if this would work to remove old ghosts from a clay bowl?

It could, but I think the best way to clean a clay bowl is to put it in boiling water.

I actually agree with myka. Boiling your bowl is the best way to clean/deghost it, but a vase is just too large to boil, hence the "boiling" by denture tabs.
