Default Flavors that "stain" your hose

Whats up guys

I have read some stuff in the shisha review section about some flavors that seem to stain their flavor into the hose.

I personally have experienced it with Afzal Pan masala, but I was wondering if you guys have ever smoked a flavor only to end up tasting it forever . . .

I agree, and I've dedicated a hose to it.

Meh, I disagree... Unless you guys know some hardcore way to clean it that I haven't tried. (I've tried everything suggested on the forums.) Eventually it will taste like a mix of flavors and total crap. Except for one exception (see below)


I can't remember what flavors have ghosted the worst besides earl grey ever since I got my AF disposable hoses. All I've had to do is rinse some water through them and it's like they're brand new.

Yea, I just got a Nammor hose a couple weeks ago and haven't looked back.

Isn't it possible to get flavors stained into a washable hose also though?

I have a KM hose, but I was always afraid to use it with strong flavors just b/c I know I can't wash it out.

I would say nakhla chocomint is one of those flavours you should keep away from your fruit hose. The taste of chocolate and passion fruit sucks ass.

Nakhla Mizo Mint, Mizo Peach, Cappuccino, Earl Gray, Desi Murli...basically all the flavors I enjoy...
Also it is VERY possible to ghost a washable hose. Although you can wash these out, I have found that there is a distinguishable taste afterwords though. Not nearly as potent as the flavors that were there before you wash it but there is still a bit of a tinge. The best thing you can do to prevent serious ghosting is to blow the smoke out of the hose after you end your session, or if you're not drawing on it for more than 3-5 min. This has gotten me farther than washing my hoses. There is still a tinge but not nearly as bad as the time I forgot to blow Mizo Mint out of my hose(hateful hateful ghosting). It also should be added that I try not to wash my hose with hot water and invoke the anger of the Razan gods. Hot water might do more to remove the ghosting, but I dont have any back up hoses(other than my Desi Murli hose which I refuse to smoke anything else with).

After Nine might ghost because it has two strong flavors(chocolate + mint). I've found that mint tobacco has a tendency to ghost for me(Chocoming/Mizo Mint/Mint). But also I noticed that tobaccos that use more glycerin(Al-Falkher etc.) dont ghost as bad as the Nakhla flavors.

wash your hose w/a water lemon juice mix and you'll be straight. Plug the ends and shake the shizzle out of it.
