Default Eww. Don't forget to clean...

So i was cleaning my hookah as i do after every bowl. I scrubbed the stem till its shiny all the way through. For some reason I decided to clean the hose port and the blow off port. I found a small brush (i didn't have one before, in fact i never even thought about deep deep cleaning the ports).

I scrub the hose port, weird gray shit comes out, and it looks thicker than water. I scrub and scrub and it finally gets clean. The purge port was even nastier. It came out with so much brown junk. I had to twist and shove and basically break the brush to get it in there fully and scrubbed to hell and back. The brown and grey coming out was gross.

I was under the impression my hookah was uber clean. Little did i realize how nasty those 2 areas were. I'm gonna be cleaning them after every bowl and see if theres a difference

I always clean my hose port and purge valve every week, and clean the rest of the hookah after every session.

I don't really clean my hose and purge ports. I don't have a brush small enough to do so. The one brush designed for that, which came with my hookah, doesn't do the trick. All of my bristles get messed up. Its not even worth it.

I clean everything after every session unless I don't have time. Also everytime I have bought a hookah I would clean it before I even smoked from it lol. who knows what could be lurking around in there...

I clean the ports all the time. I especially clean it when I first get a pipe. The stem and the ports have weird shit that is left over from the welding process, always good to cleanse the pipe!

Hopefully not anything to harmful. I don't want to see a person dying on the news because they found the venom from a Sydney funnel web spider in the stem or hose port or something.

I have a feeling it could be nasty ass dust "bunnies'. Whenever I get a new hookah, I always clean it, especially the hose port and purge port.

I always see nasty grey stuff and it looks like it could be dust mixed with other unknown crap.

I need to get some of these not only for my hose port but for my little pipe lol. I was my stem and stuff every 4-5 bowls. It is working for me. I don't want to shove too much lemon juice or baking soda down it lol. I think washing your stem EVERY time you smoke is ridiculous.
