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
cut some carpet from somewhere else and hot glue it in the spot?

[FONT=Verdana]I have done so many stupid things when smoking hookah. But the worst are always those quick fixes that would always have to get done when someone breaks the base on one of my hookahs at a party. Just because I didn't want to drive to one of those 24hr convenience stores that was around 20 minutes from my friends house to buy a new base, one time I tried taping the base back on using plastic shopping bags, garbage bags, electrical tape, and duct tape. The result was a leaking 15lb base, and no it didn’t work just wasted an hour of my time.[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana] [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]Oh and there was also the time I tried to clean my hookah with a steam cleaner. Worked great on the hookah but not so great of the washable hose that it melted together.[/FONT]

Your all doing it wrong if you don't like at least one sisha from Al-Waha.
You are doing something wrong, seriously.

probably either setting everything up and not punching holes on the foil and wondered for about 5 minutes WHY was it that hard to take a hit and why no smoke was filling the base or washing a non washable hose and it clogged up with some kind of dust?

the first few things of tangiers i had were hit and miss, i ruined 3 things of it extremely over acclimating it... then i got a few that didnt need acclimation and since then i have not had to do it, knock on wood

i burned a friends carpet one night slightly

and i broke a nammor hose putting it away when the port end hit my concrete floor in my apartment

ooo i also was trying to fix my rotator hose hub per the directions of the tech from hookah shisha (im doing metals as part of my degree so i know how to solder and general metal working). failed, failed, tried my solution and really messed up my hub. they fixed it free still but his suggestions were blatantly wrong but i just did what he said just to show he was wrong

some alwaha blows, and others are good, if you get a few of the bad flavors you wont want to try it again (their cola is amazing, but their pinia colada is a little to sweet and fake as examples)

What do you mean by "acclimate it"? I have never heard of doing that.... Does it help? How do you do it?

Thanks!

for tangiers you usually need to leave the tobacco sitting out open to get the humidity to even out so it smells/smokes right, if you dont it tastes terrible.

other people "acclimate" other tobaccos but in reality it is airing them out to knock the flavors down usually. a few people acclimate all their shisha to get the humidity even but on washed shishas there is no need at all and for unwashed only some need it

I burnt my carpet loads of times in my old apartment. What I use to do is... get a pair of scissors or a knife and like scrap all the black bits off... and then keep scrapping until the carpet around the area kinda like spreads out and covers it up. It dont work if the its a huge burn....
