Default Cleaning bowls

Just a quicky, but is it safe to put hookah bowls in a dishwasher to clean them, or are they likely to break?

I wouldn't. What's wrong with just rinsing the bowl out to clean it?

My friend did it before and when he tried to hit it, all you could see was bubbles everywhere.
That's why I'd also be careful with Dishwashing liquid.... it took him some time to rinse all that left over dl out.

I'd say no based on my experience with putting glazed pottery my mother made in the dishwasher. It etched it. Didn't break anything, but I didn't like the surface of Mom's stuff getting etched--especially as she isn't around anymore.

Use a steal wool pad and some elbow grease and it get s nice and clean. Takes all the burn crap off the glaze and makes it look NICE.

I just use water, however when the bowl does build up char and blackness I do pickup the steel brush pad and it makes it look good as new.

shouldnt hurt it, you put ceramic mugs in there

I've never tried using a dishwasher since i'd assume that it would wreck the bowls. What I do is empty out all the tobacco and rinse with lot water. Next I but the bowl in a cup and cover it with rubbing alcohol, cover it with cling wrap and let it set for a couple of hours. Finally I take out of the alcohol and let it sit in warm water for about an hour before letting it dry. only use ceramic bowls rather then clay. Don't do what I suggested for clay. Instead just pick the clay bowl after about 10 sessions. The soak method is something I do every 10 sessions or so.
