Default Mistakes.

How many of us, in either ignorance or pursuit of new hookah experiences have made terribly terribly errors?

I'd have to say my two most severe would have to be attempting to wash a non-washable hose...that wasn't even mine. Luckily my friend was a good sport about it.
The other incident was in the hopes of discovering something amazing. I mixed honey shisha and BBQ sauce. Tasted just like BBQ chicken for one hit, and then rapidly turned awful.

I left milk+atr in the base for a month, i dont think anyone could have done worse.

I also just put the coals direct on the tobacco, as i wasnt getting any smoke or flavour

Dumb Dumb things to do, but from these experiences i have learnt

I used to mess with the screw on the purge with my H-S "Nile" hookah, never realizing that it messes with the purge.

I got my hookah a week before this past saturday. I used it 4 or 5 times this week, then on saturday, I had some friends over to play beerpong and towards the later end of the night/morning we decided to get the hookah out. It was all good and I took a huge hit in the middle of a game of beerpong (Double apple with the base 3/4 full of vodka) and it made me sick and i ended up vomiting all over my bathroom.

During that time, somehow the coal got left on the floor. Luckily it was alright half out, but it still left a nice mark on the vinyl floor.

Just gotta keep a better eye on things next time.

Letting my boyfriend pack and light the bowl, I walk in and say "whats burning"
He's like "I'm smoking the hookah"
Me "You burnt it didn't you? let me have taste"

Sure enough it was burnt, and tasted like shit, lol.

Lol about the spoon, One time I was drunk and decided to carry the hookah into my friends house then dropped a coal onto his white carpet. I didn't have tongs so I pick up the coal with my hands. I dropped it 6 more times, burnt my hands pretty bad and messed up the carpet.

burning black label raspberry was one of the more terrible things i've done. washing a non-washable. smoking out of a non-washable received in a trade (RUSTY) filling the base with nothing but cheap tequila to smoke AW marg. mixing the water with vicks vapor rub.

I think the worse thing I have done is wash my Cobra hose over and over aganin since I owned it (~2 years).

I do not taste any rust, but sometimes I feel little flakes such through.

Anyone know the best way to repair a coal-burned carpet in a place you're renting?

Spending 10 minutes trying to make an apple bowl only to discover the "pit" is too big.

Also, smoking Al Waha anything is a mistake

Me and my friends were smoking hookah and we use a blow torch to light the quick light coals. Well instead my friend decided that he would hold the torch over the bowl while the other one hit it.

He threw up everywhere and for awhile too haha not sure what did it but, he was sick to his stomach
