Default Glycerin

What happens when too much glycerin is added to dry shish? Once one adds too much glycerin is there any way to salvage the shish? All help is noted

If there is too much, it makes the shisha taste wayyyyy to soapy.

If you added too much, let it sit out with the tub open for a day so it can dry up a lil

Thanks Jilly. I think I did that yesterday with my AF Watermelon. It was hitting harsh no matter what so I added glycerin. I smoked some last night and it turned into AF Soapmelon and was still hitting a little harsh. I don't know whats going on .

When your shish is dry it acts basiclly as a moisturizer. Rehydrates your dry shish.....i think lol

Glycerin also makes your shisha last longer and make it less likely to burn..another cool thing is that it gives off more smoke.

Oh yeah larry, just make sure when you add glycerin, you leave the tub open 4 like 2-3 hours so it can soak into the tobacco. I've noticed if you don't let it air out,the more likely its gonna taste more like soap

I know for sure rite aid has it. The ralphs by my house doesnt sell it, but I dunno if its the same for the one in your area.

Rite Aid has it in the pharmacy section. Even though it says "for skin care" pretty much every glycerin is the same (haha but watch out for the one that is for butt uses lmao)

Cuz the skin care one is like 99.5 pure glycerin and the 0.5 is just the skin stuff or whatever. People may say use "vegetable" cuz its"safe" to smoke. hehe I dont think that cuz the FDA doesn't exactly say glycerin is okay to smoke either :P Just any glycerin will be fine.

AF watermelon is pretty goopy stuff and already contains glycerin. If it was hittin' harsh it definitely wasn't a moisture issue, prolly heat.Also, AF watermelon has an extremely strong flavor, almost too strong. You may be mistaking this for harshness. I was actually suprised at how overpowering this stuff was when I tried it. Reminded me of an SB or tonic.
