Default Wu-Oh! Vortex Bowl help please

So my nice blue vortex has arrived, what a good day. Naturally I test the air flow. "A bit tight" I thought. Upon further inspection I discover a tragic thing. One of the holes is shielded by a layer of glaze. Now I don't really want to deal with sending emails, dealing with shipping, etc. Is there and easy solution to breaking this barrier?
Thanks,
Scarcity

You should email them. Depending where you bought it from, they might just send you a new one without bothering to have you send it back. A lot of companies do this for products that are below a certain cost. It's ultimately cheaper to just cut their losses. Hookah-Shisha has done it for me twice and both times really hooked me up in the process.

I'm a bit apprehensive to do something like this as I think I may damage the rim ! Is there like a light acidic substance that wouldn't be harmful to use, to at least loosen it up?
Thanks,

I had the same problem when I ordered a new blue one over the summer. I emailed them about it and they asked for pics. I provided them with the necessary pictures and they shipped me a brand new, perfectly functional bowl at no additional charge.
