Default Km vase cleaning help.

I know before you even tell me use the search and already did! Im having trouble getting my vase clean. There seams to be some sort of stuff stuck to the bottem and cant get it out and seems to be very stuborn to come off. It is whitish almost translucent gunk and because of the flare on my km vase. My brushes cant seem to get enough friction to remove it. Where does this gunk come from? Im very clean and even use my RO water in my vase every time. Ive used every brush i own, Crushed ice lemon juice baking soda, dish soap, wooden dowls and fresh brillow pads, combinations of all of the above and cant seem to get the gunk out of that .5 or so flare at the bottem. I guess my main concern is it harmful i wouldnt think but figured i would ask before i order a new vase. I clean it almost every use with the brushes and usually some baking soda and lemon juice at aminium. Im sorta a neat freak with my hookahs and hoses and this bugs me and i really didnt notice it tonight till i removed my base protector and held it up to the light. stupid me i never remove the base protector even when cleaning and now i wish i would have sooner maby this crap would allot easier to remove. Any suggestions would be great with my broblem.

i left some water for over a month in my mya vortex base and mold started growing on the bottom. i cleaned it by getting hot as hell water from the tap (you could boil it as well, i guess) and adding clorox. first i put the hot water in, swirled it around and then poured it out. then i put in the bleach, swirled it around and added some more hot water. you could do this, let it sit and then pour it out. RINSE THOROUGHLY

the denture cleaner also helps a lot, as well

If it's calcium deposits, you could use OxyClean, Cascade Complete, or CLR. Just clean it out really well afterwards.

If it's just a build-up, use 90% ISO Rubbing Alcohol mixed with salt (table or epsom). Shake vigorously! Works even better if you warm the ISO in the microwave. Just microwave it in 10 second increments until desired temperature.

Between the two of these, you should be able to remove any kind of gunk.

thats kinda really nasty. i always at least rinse everything down and dry it as much as possible be4 putting it away. i had a hookah given to me and someone had also left water in the base for about a month and it got all kinds of deposites in it haha. i used clr and it cleared it right up just yeah be sure to rinse it extremely good after using something like that

i would try the denture cleaner, ive heard that works really really well.

and if you use really hot water warm the base up with warm water first just to make sure you dont thermal shock it, probably dont need to worry about it but better safe than sorry

Easiest way is with some soap and water. Take your vase, put a drop of soap in it and fill it half way with hot water. Then add a wash cloth and shake the vase around and really mix the water and soap together. Then rinse a few times and it should take the previously smoked tobacco out and make the vase shine.

just remember glass can take almost any chemical so any hose hold cleaner should be fine to kick out the junk (just be careful if its strong to not get it on any painting on the out side)
