All I used to smoke was Starbuzz til I learned there were other brands in the world.

I seriously used to keep them all.. Had a closet full of tins, literally. Decided to throw em away one day and it was like a 55gallon trash bag FULL of tins.

I kept a couple luckily, I dumped the Nakhla I ordered into one. Might start keeping a few around

actually, i use one for a cooking pan/water jug for when i do my "survival days"

A survival day is when i go out into the woods (theyre in my backyard basically) and i live off the wilderness for 2-7 days at a time. i bring a small survival kit like les stroud does and i chill out there for a few days. its a wonderful experience.

Throw them away. If you rinse them out to re-use, they just rust.

They're good for holding shisha you get through trades, coals, etc. I didn't really get any other suggestions on a similar thread I made a couple months back - http://www.hookahpro.com/forum/showthread.php?t=15662

There was a thread like this a few months ago, someone suggested pouring in flavored and colored candle wax and adding a wic. Make some candles, matching the flavor of the wax with the type of shisha that was in it. Im planning on doing it today, I have 2 empty tins of JMs and SB ill post up some pic when they are done.

Hey, I like that idea. I and my ex-fiance used to make candles a lot. Haven't done it in years.

i have a couple 50g tins and a couple 250s. i reuse them to hold shisha. normally if i get the same flavor i try to match it with the right tin. if its like nahkla or some other brand that i don't want tampering the flavor i just let it sit out (the tins) for awhile and use a moist cloth to clean it and fully dry it. never had a problem with rust and the smell should be nearly gone. i guess if u r really picky on it removing flavor u can try to use a touch of lemon juice or something light and wipe it out and again let it sit and u should be fine.

the tins seem like nice little storage dishes if u have coins or whatever else since metal doesn't degrade. but i can see where if you have a whole closet of tins that could be a problem lol. sorry if my suggestions aren't as creative... im too practical minded need to get in touch with my art side i suppose haha.

I have a bunch of the tins. I really like the candle idea. I am going to have to find candle kits and make candels out of them.. Candles are very useful.
