Default Clean My Hose

What is the best way to clean a washable hose? I have a nammor, and currently just run warm water through it after a session. I feel like this isn't the most efficient method, because when I breathe in after washing the hose (not connected to the hookah) I'm still getting hints of the previous flavor.

I don't want to miss flavor on my future smokes. What do you find works best?

You can use Baking Soda as well I have heard.

My Hose keeps a ghost... but usually once I start smoking for a few mins a new flavor I don't taste the ghost at all. I imagine one day Ill have to clean it real good, once it gets ghosted to much.

the use of baking soda, lemon juice with a combination of hot water works really well for washable hoses. HOT water, piping hot. Let your baking soda, lemon juice mixture sit in the hose for about 2 - 3 minutes, then rinse it with hot water. Works really well. vinegar also works wonders if you don't have lemon juice.

When I saw the thread title, my first thought was:


Yo! Clean my hose!

I just swish some hot water and lemon juice in mine. If I have any ghosting, it's from the lemon juice.

This works for me:

- Get a can and fill it with water
- Add some lemon juice and baking soda to the water and mix it up
- Let it go through your hose, once the can is empty, grab both ends so there is still some water in the hose.
- Just shake a bit so the inside of the hose gets 'washed'
- Pour the water out, let some clean water go through it
- Let it dry
- No ghosts!

Also works with the vase, if you put some water mixed with lemon juice and soda in it and let it sit for a night, it smells brand new

Warm water, some lemon juice, swish it around and then run regular water through it. Then swing it round from the middle of the hose to get most of the water out, then like it hang dry from the middle.

I use lemon juice and white vinegar. boil them together and let the mix sit in the hose for a few minutes. then run it through really good with hot water to make sure the vinegars gone. pack up some mint for freshness

I have an empty lemon juice bottle ~32 oz that I use.
- put baking soda and 1/4-1/2 cup of lemon juice in the bottle
- shake
- then open top cap of bottle to reveal small opening
- squirt the mixture into the hose, one end of which is in bathtub/sink
(- alternative to squirt some in hose, then plug both ends of hose and mix around)
- fully fill bottle with clean water and again squirt into hose
- Bingo your done

the lemon juice and baking soda method works well.. I use rubbing alcohol and salt.. run that through your hose a few times then rinse with water..

then your golden and ready for the next bowl with no ghosts living in your hose.
