Default Foil

Sorry for the newbie question, but I was wondering about using foil to cover the bowl. From what I have read on here and from other places, most people seem to prefer foil instead of the bowl screens. I just read somewhere that you shouldn't use household aluminum foil, but buy the foil made especially for hookahs. So, I guess my question is, should I buy the special hookah foil, or would your regular Reynolds or whatever aluminum foil work fine?

use regular foil and your are set. dont use any that are non stick or have any additives, because there could be chemicals that do bad things.

And yes screens suck, the holes are way too large and allow ash to fall in easily. they are absolutely useless

reynolds heavy duty. 1 layer usually does it. otherwise you could be laying down 2-3 sheets of the thin stuff and just waste money.

Yeah those are rumors started by people who make hookah foils. Use Reynold's HD 1 layer. It's all you need.

screens allow too much ash to fall down into the shisha and make it taste bad..also better with heat management

I use household foil. Its cheap and you can control the holes. The screens get really hot and have big holes so ash gets on the tobacco. I never use screens.
