Default Cleaning Stargate hookah



So I was washing this guy out with hot water and it turned a light blue. I think it's water deposits but I'm not sure. How can I get it looking good?

That could be that good old Chinese addition of heavy metals! But humm, Try hand washing it and drying it similarly to waxing a car. See how that works. Give us pics too!

I had a stargate and it never turned blue. The top where the bowl screwed onto the stem, did get a little oxidation (more like greenish white), but I just cleaned it with hot water, soap and water.

You could try polishing it to make the spots go away.

humm maybe it is your water. Try using distilled water or use a brita filter. Then dry it as soon as you wash/clean it.

Word.

After poisoned baby formula, lead containing children's toys, and tainted food, it continues to amaze me that people will go out of their way to buy Chinese products just to save a few bucks.

i've got a stargate hookah & i've never seen it do that, though we do have hard water here & if i dont scrub it out w/a brush sometimes the mineral deposits get really thick, like little spheres of lime stone or something, you must have had the water extreamly hot too, almost sounds like you took the temper out of the metal some how, not sure how you can fix it if thats the case, maby find somewhere you can get it annodized or plated
