Unhappy My Syrian Still Smells Of Brass - Any Ideas?

Hi Guys and Girls,

I got myself the following Shisha 2 weeks ago (http://www.shishabuzz.com/special-of...ookah.html)and have smoked out of it twice (AF Watermelon and AF Grape) and the taste has been good.

I have cleaned it twice (Base soaked in hot water and washing powder, cleaning brush used for the detachable stem, soaked in warm water with washing powder, warm water then poured through the pipe and then brushed again), but when I pick up the pipe and smell it, I still get a nasty brass smell.

Is this simply because the stem is made out of brass or because I have failed to clean it properly?

I have followed Photolinger and others how to vids on cleaning, so am bamboozled as to this smell.

Any help is much appreciated!

Thanks,
Burak

smells like brass because it is brass...as long as it tastes fine.

das ist what I thought, I was just worried smoke had been left inside and left a nasty smell, but after the thorough cleaning I gave that bad boy, shouldn't be possible!

When I first got my KM, there was a strong metallic smell. Washed it with dish soap inside and out, used the stem brush, then ran some lime juice and water through it. Still smells metallic, but not as much. I'm not really bothered with it anymore. There's no way to get all of the smell off, I don't think.

place the stem in a STAINLESS steel stock cooking container with water overnight.

stainless will even take the smell of fish off your hands.
