Default How to: Air out your Nammor hoses

So a lot of you who have purchased the Nammor hoses know that they have a pretty bad plastic taste when you use them for the first time. I just bought a new set and didn't want to deal with this, so I came up with a simple way to air them out so that the first smoke tastes like shisha and not plastic.

Basically, all you have to do is hang them from your ceiling and have a fan blow air through them for a few hours (I'd say at least 5 to be safe). I used a couple of funnels in order to capture more of the airflow from the fan and send it through the hoses.

Here's a crappy iPhone picture of how I set it up:

P.S.: This would probably also work well for drying the hoses after they've been washed.

I just washed mine with a weak solution of vinegar and water. No plastic taste.

cool idea but lemon juice and baking soda was able to kick the flavor out for me, this is probably less work honestly but the lemon and baking soda takes less time over all

ya, I agree... who wants to wait 5 hours after their shipment comes in to smoke from their new hose ? Not me.. but this is a great idea nonetheless.

You have to wash it, it has a black dye in it still. Warm water for 10 sec and your good.

you dont need to use warm to get that out and you sure as hell dont want to use warm to wash it normally, 10 seconds wont do much but constant exposure is gona mess up the glue
