Default How to tell if hose is washable?

Many hoses that come with hookahs do not say if they are washable or not.

How can you tell if they have metal in them and cant be washed or if they do not have any metal in them and can be washed?

Someone will know better than I do, but I can only guess based on:

1) The hose is a KM, it;s not washable
2) Leather hose is not washable
3) Says washable when you order it or Narbish, Razan, Caravan, Namoor, or one of those washable names
4) Post a photo and someone here will almost always know
5) Taste like metal, it wasn't washable (too late?)
6) If you don't know for sure, just don't wash it till you know for sure

always assume the hose is not washable unlesss the manufacturer/retailer swears that it is washable.

a good way to check is to use a strong magnet. put it on your hose and if it sticks, it's not washable.

Brilliant! I just checked two of my hoses (that I assumed were not washable), this way and my assumptions have been confirmed.

Thanks for the tip!

Only problem with the magnet is that if it actually does not stick tot the hose, meaning it won't rust, there might be cardboard in the handle that can rot if it gets wet...
