Okay guys thanks for all the help. Couple of things.

1. Only one part is really rusted (the piece that screws into the bottom of the stem). Lemon Juice should cover the rest .

2. I have a tetanus shot, so I don't have to worry about that.

3. I live in probably the most liberal part of the country, (Boston, MA) which means there aren't any gunshops that I have ever seen lol. (I have never even held a gun :0)

4. Are there any homemade techniques for cleaning the interior? (A toothbrush maybe?)


And thanks for the advice, it has been really helpful.

p.s. I will try to upload some pics tomorrow when the sun is out because my lamp makes it very hard to see.

Naval jelly would work. It literally removes the rust. However, it smells like rotten eggs, and somehow i have a feeling that smell would never come out of your hookah. Just adding my opinion to the pile of course, but save your money that would be spent on cleaning stuff and just buy a new hookah.
And keep the new one clean and dry

Why not try a dowel rod and sandpaper on the inside then clean it like normal. I bet that would work.
