Default Who Cleans Their Hookah?

who cleans their rigs? how often and why. i just wanna know because so many people i know never clean theirs and some never will and they are horrible rigs imho. i clean and wash mine every time, and have never even had to use the brush for the stem, my hookah is always fairly smell-less, and very shiny. i believe you sholdnt smoke another bowl without cleaning, and changing water. i think the taste is ruined unless clean. what do yall think?

Everyone hopefully.

At least run water through the stem after each use. I run water through it and set it in the dish strainer.

I brush it out with lemon juice and baking soda every two weeks or so.

I clean my KM's lightly after every use.. And intensely about twice a month.. Which includes plugging the stem, filling it with diluted lemon juice and sea salt. Same with the base... before rinsing it with clean water.. Perfect for getting that notorious hookah stink out

Bleh, I'm lazy with cleaning it, but not that lazy. I mean I'll let it sit for maybe a day, but it does get cleaned as far having good smoking sessions each time. I would never let it sit and just rot for long periods of time, well at least not anymore.

I clean mine after every use. Typically I run really hot water through the stem, hose port, and every now and then the purge valve. I have yet to get any build up, stem is shiny and clean when held up to light.

Once after every session but if I'm lazy when putting my rig away I always clean it out before the next use. Use lemon juice and baking soda when needed but hot water and a good scrubbing with cleaning brushes after each use is enough to keep me happy. I learned my lesson with my first rig(Mini Mya) which I bought H-S and it didn't come with a brush(because I bought it clearance). I rinsed it out with hot water after each session which evidently wasn't enough because when I finally got a brush set and cleand it, I was disgusted by the build up that came out of it . If you treat your rig right it will be kind to you in return.

I clean my Hookah after every use, stem, base, bowl.
Every two weeks I give it a real clean, lemon juice, bakingsoda, sea salt.

When I was new to hookah I had one for 7-8 months, never cleaned it. Believe me, the taste was disgusting!

I always clean my stuff usually right after I finish a session. If not then I make sure to clean it before I end my day.

I rinse out the base and clean out the bowl(scrub it if I have to) and I'll run water through the stem and hose.
After about every 5 times I've used my rig I'll use the pipe cleaners with the base and stem.

Also, lately I've boiled water to dunk my hose mouth piece in to make sure it's germ free.

I clean it before and after each smoking session.
I run some warm water through the stem and scrub with a brush.

I rinse everything off with water after every smoke. I deep clean it once a week, but now that I am getting more and more hookahs and can switch off, I may be switching the deep clean to every two weeks.
