yuck soap.

I usually wash my hookah with baking soda.

And it tasted weird after. You gotta smoke the bad taste out. Eventually it will get back to normal.

keep rinsing it out, to clean all you really need it lemon juice and baking soda. Try a lemon juice rinse a couple times then rinse well with water. See how that works for you.

rinse, rinse, rinse. Works like a washable hose. if you keep smoking in it the taste will get worse unless you smoke something overpowering such as AF Mint

Ttam, over the next week or so keep an eye on your hookah. I don't know whether or not putting the stem in the dish washer will do any more damage than leaving a filmy residue and bad taste, but you want to watch for rusting, especially if it's a Chinese generic. Give it a good rinse with cold water as cold water cuts through soapy residue better than warm water.

And invest in a bottle of pure lemon juice or white distilled vinegar and a set of cleaning brushes if you don't have any at present. Hookah John sells a three-piece brush kit for only $5.99.

Hopefully after a good rinse and a session with Nakhla Mint the taste will go back to normal for you.

I only clean mine with dhish soap and lots of warm water.
If it's good enough for the things I eat off of, it's good enough for the hookah.
