Default Hose Cleaning

Hey guys just had a quick question. I haven't had that many washable hoses so I was wondering what you all recommended as to how often I should wash my new hose. Is it a matter of personal preference? Thanx.

I wash it after every session, if I smoke a few different flavors in one session, I wash after each flavor.

I do it when I'm not feeling lazy after a session. I try to wash out the whole hookah (including my hose) after every session...but usually hookah has me feeling like hardcore chillin out. haha

and make sure you can wash it. take a magnet to the hose and if it sticks, dont wash that hose!
other then that, its personal pref, im with the hatter on this one. i dont wash it unless there is a ghosting of another flavor. it can be a while or a day.. just when it calls for it

Washable or not, i have hoses for families of flavors, citrus hose, berry hose, fruits, and a hose for just DA, the flavor in that hose is like on a cast iron skillet the way its been built up

Yeah I guess ghosting would be my biggest problem. I'll keep the flavor-specific idea in mind Buzz, thanks.

Poor some lemon juice and vinegar down the hose, tip it back and forth a few times, then rinse with cold water for about 2-3 minutes. Smell check and if needed rinse again, hang dry or blow really hard on one end.

I have to do it after smoking SB, SB is like in-laws that never go away, everything else after that smells like SB, lol.
