Default preping a nammor hose to smoke?

I just picked up my package from H-S from my schools mailroom before the mail room closed. I am sitting in class with my 250gram tubs of AF tobacco and my large nammor hose. I can't wait to get outta class and smoke but i am wondering what i should do to my hose before smoking, i have read reviews about it tasting like plastic for the first week or so. and fyi the AF flavors are golden strawberry, golden grape, and cardomon.


OOPS....i forgot a p in prepping in the title

When I first got mine, I had just rinsed it a few times with lime juice, and it was pretty good.

Rinsing. It's pretty simple. Do not use hot water. While it would leech the flavor of plastic out faster it will loosen the glue and make the hose fall apart.

After that it's a matter of smoking out the plastic flavor. Smoke strong stuff for a while and rinse it if the flavor ghosts. Eventually it will have no plastic flavor and be a damn good hose for a while.

Definitely smoke cardamom first, even if you don't like it, the flavor will get rid of the plastic smell.

Mix lemon juice, baking soda and water and pour it into the hose, very strong on lemon. Plug end of hose with a finger and pour it in and the rest of the way with cool/warm water to top. Make into a U shape, tips up and place in sink and rig it so it wont move and let go of both ends so the mixture is sitting in the hose. Let it sit at least 15 minutes to an hour. Grab both tips let out enough liquid so there is room for the liquid to move and shake it, turn each end up and then down for a few minutes really mixing it up. Run cool water through the hose using a funnel for about 5 minutes then smoke something really strong through it. That's it it will be ready to use from then on without any odor or taste and it is a strong odor when new and you can taste it if you don't do this. Never use hot water.

I bought a narbish hose, and i didnt do anything to it. I smoked a couple bowls out of it, and the plastic taste/smell went away really fast.

Good to know my nammor comes in from H-S tomorrow. What flavor out of these would you think would be best to get rid of the plastic taste after cleaning; AF Lemon Mint, AF Cappuccino, AF Berry, Tang F-Line Apple, or Nak Strawberry? I'm thinking Cappuccino or Lemon Mint myself. Wish I had gotten a 50 gram mint to break in the new hose/hookah but didn't even think of it till this thread. :/

I love my nammor hose, and try not to get the outside of the hose wet. Mine is cracking and falling apart. Other than that, its a great hose!
