Default Are my hoses washable?

It never said when I bought the hookah whether my hoses are washable. I'm guessing they aren't though. They have metal tips on both ends.

I'll take some pics in a second.

OK they definately look wire based, with a cardboard like construction and a plastic cover, if there's a wire in it, there's no washable, you want a completely plastic hose like Namours/Razans/Grands/Caravan.
So the hoses you have don't look washable.

NO The Cobra Hoses are NOT washable.
You can blow compressed air through them, works pretty good.

I stil love my cobra hoses, if you just need hoses, heck Go to Saharasmoke.com and buy the discounted ones, they might have a few frays, or a whole or two (depends on your luck, my black one didn't have anythign wrong with it, and my blue one had one leak in it)
There only 3 bucks, I'd do that and do simple repairs than buy a non washable hose for 15+ dollars.
If your going to pay that much for a hose, invest in, Namour/Razan/Grand/Caravan.

Personally I like the Saudi Washable hoses from thehookahstore.com. I know they carry Razans now too but the Saudi hose we have works beautifully and it is my wife's favorite. It is washable and it has a great wooden mouthpiece. Besides that after discounts and what not it is around $7.50. That is really hard to beat. I need to pick up 2 or 3 more at some point.

The best thing to do is probably run compressed air through it like mentioned before. I'm probably going to invest in a Nammor hose here soon myself. I like the look.

Unless expressly stated, assume a hose is non-washable. Very rarely is the stock hose that comes with a hookah washable. Sometimes you can get an upgrade from your stock hose for a price.

Don't really know what to compare it to but let me just say this about it. This is my thinnest gaged hose on the outside but most liberal draw. So looks can be deceiving. It may not measure up to a Razan but for me this is more than enough draw to keep me happy. The one that came with my hookah has the widest gage and to me they seem pretty much equal. I would say somewhere between a MYA and a Razan probably. I think I have smoked off a Razan once or twice I vaguely remember it so I can't really compare.

For $9 before the discount I gotta say how bad can it be. Besides it is wicked attractive. I mean it has those stupid scrunchie things on them but they match up pretty well so it looks good. I gotta pick up some more cause my wife keeps grabbing that one for everything. I have to remind her we have 5 hoses we can rotate. Just because she has a favorite doesn't mean we can't show some love to the others.

screw razan, screw nammor hoses. (been that route)

You want something 100% washable and so cheap, you can buy with pocket change? Al Fakher healthy hose. Great draw/pull, wide selection of colors to choose from, cheap to replace (if you ever need to)

Most hoses which are labled washable are washable, and those not labled washable are also washable. Once . Then you chuck it out since most have the wire inside. IF you want to invest in a "Truely washable" hose make sure its genuine and write in your order that you want a washable hose or money back. What you could do also is take the mouthpiece off and the connector end, go to a hardware store and fit them to a length od PVC hose. The hose diameter should be smaller. At home heat both ends in very hot water and stick em in.I've made a few. You can decorate it with some sewn cloth. Or buy a ready made for hookah PVC 2 coloured hose. I use them only since they clean out in warm water and are dry in seconds. 2 or 2 companies sell them.Look in search for "plastic hookah hose".

Take an untreated iron skillet one of those grey ones that doesn't have any oil cooked into it yet. Then wash it in the dishwasher and set it out on your cabinet over night. What happens to them happens to the metal coil in your non washable hose.

Or a site you may be familiar with, the statue of liberty. At one time she was a deep rich golden brown. What happened to her happens to an unwashable hose when you wash it only replace green with bright red.
