i just remove the tobacco from its bag with my tongs, and then pack the bowl using my hands. Then i just wash my tong off after i use them.

some people do but i dont, i think its a waste of time and makes a mess, same with using the fork method on tangiers.

i mix the shisha up usually by kneading the zip lock its in, shaking the jar or just stirring it with a tooth pick or a fork. you need to fluff the shisha and its much hard to do with anything other than your hands.

basically using a tool to do something you can do with your hands makes it much harder, in fact this idea is one of the biggest things any one in jewelry/metal working will learn. if you can do it with your hands it will work better for the most part, also the reason glass blowing is hard (among other reasons but any way) you cannot touch the glass... well you could but you wouldnt have a finger after about 30 seconds so you have to use tools to be the extensions of your hands.

kinda went off on a tangent, but use you hands and rinse them off after you pack the bowl

i would think the tongs would pack the tobacco together when you squeezed on it when you want your bowl fluffy

and i LOVE how the smell stays on your fingers

I use my fingers to pack the bowl because my tongs have QL residu on them and that would be so nasty on the tobacco. Besides, you have more control over the tobacco and the packing process with your hands.

That was what I was thinking when I saw it on videos. The tongs would pinch it so it would be packed not loose.
