Default WASHABLE HOSE

Was wanting to know how often should you wash a washable hose?

Honestly, whenever you feel it needs a wash, after being heavily ghosted for example. Just don't let it go unwashed for months like I did, as soon as I ran some water through it a bunch of brown crap came out.

First I run luke warm water through it, then drop some baking soda followed by a small amount of water and lemon juice (or distilled vinegar, whichever one I have on hand), swish it around for a minute or so and then run some water through it again, until everything is washed out, then just hang the hoses to dry.

over a door knob is great and if it is really ghosted then i like to put some baking soda and water almost to the point of white and swish that arounf in there let dry and rinse works so amazing you'll never know the hose was used

i wash mine after every use, sling the water out then hang it up over a doorknob or something like that so any water left inside will drain out

I usually wash mine out every couple of sessions. So far I haven't had any ghosting problems with it, so I guess it's working for me. Smoke happy.

wash it whenever your tasting something you dont want to taste

this link is to the best diagram i have ever seen on how to clean a washable hose
i use this method step for step and it works perfect. Dont take shortcuts let your hose sit for a full 24 hours so that its completely dry. A wet hose will take on flavor faster than a dry one

Depends on how hard the ghost is, at least for me. When I tried SB Tangerine Dream (awesome flavor btw), it had the biggest ghost of all time. I just dilute some luke warm water with distilled vinegar and most of the smell is gone and most importantly, all of the taste is gone.
