Default Instead of water!!

Hey guys this is a simple trick to try instead of adding water to your shisha/hookah add some Redbull or any drink + Ice This gives it an added taste and gives you a new experience.

No way you can add other liquid but water to a hookah?

Totally kidding by the way, thanks for the advice.

i actually tried something different today.
i found some mint leaves in my fridge today so i boiled about a hand full in water and then put it in the fridge. a few hours later i put the cooled water in to the base of my hookah and smoked some AF lemon. and my god i had one of the best mint tastes ever and the lemon went so gd with the taste

I plan on brewing some tea next time I smoke Earl Grey ... or adding a little lemon juice to the base .. or both.

Always fun to mix it up and try different liquids in the base.

My friend tried soda in the base, and that was just a disaster. He forgot he put soda in it and let it sit over night and that clean up was not fun at all.

Put some baking soda in the base and mix about a 1/4 cup of white distilled vinegar or pure lemon juice and fill the rest of your base with warm water. It will fizz if you use vinegar once it reacts with the soda. Let it sit in the sink or tub for a few hours. If you don't have a vase brush, just put a small cloth in there and swish it around with some sort of item that is long enough to handle, such as a rubber spatula. Rinse well and let it air dry upside down so the water can drain out. If that doesn't get rid of the line I don't know what will.

It should work, but if it doesn't, pull out the big guns and use CLR. Just be sure to rinse the vase several times afterward.

alcohol makes your lungs burn
milk makes you get milk in your hose from all the bubbling, its never been that great of an experience for me.

also don't try coconut milk (that was my first hp vid!)

Just had some guava juice in my base. smoke was quite awesome. hopefully clean up won't be a bummer.
As for cleaning some of the tougher stuffs.. I find putting kosher salt in the base with rubbing alcohol works wonders. Slosh the salt around and it picks off the grime on the walls. then you wash it right out with hot water a few times and BAM clean base.

i did a 3:1 mix of half/half and water but filled a bit lower in the base with HH vanilla and cranberry herbal. The smoke seems heavier in a good kind of way

Photo I use coconut mil all the time and it has always made the smoke thicker for me (but that might just be in my head). If u use like 1 can milk and the rest water and it doesn't bubble into the hose.
