I use a push-pin (except for Layalina, found that the poker on my tongs works fabulously for some reason then), starting with one hole in the center and then successive spiraling pentagons to the edge... if that makes sense.. I'm going to do some video reviews soon, I will probably explain it better in one of them.

I usually use a safety pin, and bend the "pokey" part back a little bit, so it's a 90 degree angle and I can poke holes.

I used to use a toothpick then I moved on to a thumb tack but I lost it. But I did find a poker that I used to use to unplug my cigars if they were rolled to tight.

I made that poker out a wire hanger. I cut a piece about 6" long and bent about 1" in so it's like a handle(looks like an L) then I sharpend the long end.

Works perfect for me.

Yeah I use the thing that comes with the tongs or a tooth pick. I usually do a swirl till I get to the numb sticking up in my vortex bowl.

Toothpick. The hole pattern differs between the bowl I am using.

Thumbtack works best for me, tooth picks are not bad either.

UGh. That's a great way to ruin good Zaghloul.
