Default Stains on the inside of a clear/white Mya Vase (pics)

Hey I just received my Mya hookah and was inspecting it for its 3 day trial Mmourad is giving me, It has some white stains on the inside, they look a bit like a drip of some sort on the inside, it only shows on the frosted section of the vase.

What do you think? cleaning wise? i don't think its damaged, it doesn't affect the smoke, the thing had everything still in plastic wrap for the most part and the stain on the inside of the mya bowl (white clay) is minimal, I may try some hot water and lemon juice later to try to get it out as it seems to be the forum answer.

Thanks in advance Guys!

but it isn't paint, the outside is frosted and when wet the streaks don't show so it makes me think its something removable I dunno maybe I'm just over-curious because I have 3 days to examine it

Could be an abbrasive scratch or an unglossed part of the glass.

I've got vases like that as well, little bit of water makes it look normal, but when it dries you can see the streak again.

After seeing your picture, yes, those are the scratches I was talking about.

Most likely when the glass was blown, the pipe used to form it was dragged across the sides or scratched in some other way. Its an imperfection in the material.

Yeah sure, no problem bud.

Also, dont worry about it, the scratch in the glass wont harm you any while smoking, though it will make the glass more likely to crack or shatter if its hit or dropped, so be extra careful with that base.
