well if its brand new..u dont really need to do too much. Just rinse everything but the hose with hot water. As for the hose, just blow out any particles that may be sitting in it to clean it out

I always do a heavy duty cleaning...baking soda, warm water, lemon juice, brushes, whole nine yards. There is always gunk on the inside of the stems.

Warm water, if you feel the need to clean, lemon juice and baking soda are the top pick me thinks. cant hurt ot clean the hell out of it every time.

warm water and a brush should be okay, if youre feeling paranoid lemon juice and baking soda will work great. and congrats on the new rig man!

Gunk? On a brand new hookah?

Yep! Leftovers from the manufacturing process. Then, depending on what the hookah's made of, you can get tarnish and whatnot just from storage.

A good thorough cleaning never hurts.

When my friend got his KM we just ran warm water through all the ports and stems and all that good stuff. Ran the brush through it till it got squeaky clean and commenced to smoke.

Water, brush, lemon juice, if really bad a little baking soda.... New, used, big, small, brass, steel, doesn't matter, keep it simple
citrus has acid, baking soda kills odor

bam!
