Do you ever find yourself pondering the importance of cleaning your smoking devices? If you haven’t, let this be your wake-up call to learn how to clean your smoking device before your next session. If you’re wondering why this even matters, let us enlighten you. 

Imagine sitting down to enjoy a delicious dinner, only to find your fork covered in remnants of your breakfast pancakes. Yikes! That’s definitely not the flavor combination you were hoping for, right? Just like we wouldn’t want breakfast and dinner flavors mingling on our fork, it’s equally unappealing to smoke out of a device that’s plagued with built-up hash residue.

Cleaning your smoking devices not only ensures a fresh and pristine experience but also helps to maintain the integrity of the flavors you love. By removing residue and build-up, you can truly savor the true essence of your chosen herb or concentrate without any unwanted hints of the past.

Moreover, regular cleaning prolongs the lifespan of your smoking devices. It prevents clogs, reduces the chances of unpleasant odors, and keeps everything functioning smoothly. Think of it as giving your favorite smoking companion a well-deserved spa day, pampering it, and ensuring its optimal performance.

Lastly, let’s not forget the hygiene aspect. Cleaning your smoking devices helps to eliminate any potential bacteria or germs that may have accumulated over time. By keeping your devices clean, you’re taking an extra step towards promoting a healthier and more enjoyable smoking experience.

Let’s look at how to clean your OOKA, dab rig, and bong to ensure they are prepped for your next session.

How to Clean Your OOKA

You should clean your beloved OOKA after every smoke session. But don’t worry, it’s super easy and well worth the minimal effort to keep your OOKA running smoothly for the long haul. Here’s how to shine up your weed hookah between every use.

What you’ll need:

    • – Soft cloth or paper towels
    • – Dish soap
    • – Long-necked cleaning brush (included with your OOKA)
    • – 5-10 minutes

Step 1: Give it a Chill

Wait for the OOKA to cool down completely after your session. Once it’s back to baseline, you can start the cleaning process. 

Step 2: Top-to-Bottom Wipe

Grab a clean, dry cloth or a handy paper towel and wipe down the top and sides of your OOKA. Then, pop open that top lid where you place your OOKA pod. Give the inside a good wipe with the cloth, making sure to remove any sneaky residue that might be hanging around.

Step 3: Rubber Stopper TLC

Inside the lid, you’ll find a rubber stopper doing its job. If it needs a little extra attention, gently wash it with warm, soapy water. Make sure to dry it off completely before popping it back in place. Use a non-abrasive scouring pad and some soapy water to give it a good cleaning. Once done, wipe away any soapy remnants with a dry cloth.

Step 4: Rinse the Bowl

Remove the water bowl and dump out any remaining water. Fill with mild soap and warm water and give it a swirl or two before rinsing away. Be sure to get all of those suds out of the bowl, then dry completely with your cloth. 

Step 5: Brush Away the Gunk

Dip the trusty cleaning brush into some soapy water and shake off excess water. Now, delicately insert it through the OOKA, swirling and scrubbing the inside of the device. Take your time and be gentle, ensuring a thorough clean. Once you’re done, give it a good wipe to remove any lingering soapiness.

Step 6: Flip it and Reverse It

Time to turn that OOKA upside down! Grab a damp, soapy cloth and give the bottom a nice wipe-down. Remove the bottom piece and show it some love with a damp cloth as well.

Step 7: Dry and Reassemble

Once all components of the OOKA are completely dry, reassemble the device. Your OOKA is now primed and prepped for your next session of pure vaping pleasure.

How to Clean Your Dab Rig

Discover the step-by-step process to maintain your rig’s optimal performance and savor the full spectrum of terpene flavors.

What you’ll need:

    • – Isopropyl alcohol 
    • – Cotton swabs or pipe cleaners
    • – 60-90 minutes

Step 1: Bid Farewell to the Water

First, separate all of the components of the rig, including the banger and stem. Then, ensure you empty the water from your dab rig. It’s a golden rule that paves the way for a flawless cleaning experience. 

Step 2: Unleash the Power of Isopropyl Alcohol

Fill your rig with isopropyl alcohol (get 90% or higher) and let it work its wonders. Allow the rig to soak for at least an hour. Halfway through, you can shake and swirl the rig to help loosen up any lingering residue. Cotton swabs or pipe cleaners are helpful in reaching nooks and crannies. 

Step 3: Soak Your Accessories

Submerge quartz bangers and carb caps in a small container filled with isopropyl alcohol. This extra step ensures an immaculate and sparkling clean rig from top to bottom. Use cotton swabs to remove residue in any hard-to-reach areas.

Step 4: Rinse, Rinse, Rinse

After each piece is done soaking, thoroughly rinse every nook and cranny of your dab rig with warm water. This crucial step ensures the complete removal of any residual isopropyl, leaving your rig ready for the next dabbing session. Let the rig air dry, then reassemble for the next use.

How to Clean Your Bong

Don’t be that person with the funky, stinky bong on the coffee table. Treat your glass with the respect it deserves, and scrub it down regularly. 

What you’ll need:

    •  – Isopropyl alcohol
    • – Coarse salt
    • – Sturdy brush 
    • – Cotton swabs or pipe cleaners
    • – 60-90 minutes

Step 1: Toss the Funky Water and Disassemble

Give it a gentle shake, allowing the old water to flow out and bid farewell to the residue that has overstayed its welcome. Next, carefully disassemble your bong, separating the detachable parts like the bowl, downstem, and any other removable accessories. 

Step 2: Prepare the Cleaning Solution 

In a sink or large basin, mix warm water with a generous amount of isopropyl alcohol. For optimal results, aim for a higher percentage of alcohol. This potent concoction will work wonders in banishing stubborn resin and grime.

Step 3: Soak and Swirl 

Place the disassembled bong pieces into the cleaning solution, ensuring they are fully submerged. Let them soak for about 60 minutes, allowing the alcohol to break down the accumulated gunk. For an extra kick, give the mixture a gentle swirl now and then to dislodge any stubborn residue.

Step 4: The Salt and Shake Ritual 

While the bong parts are enjoying their alcohol bath, add a handful of coarse salt to the main chamber of the bong. The salt acts as a natural scrubbing agent, enhancing the cleaning power. Hold the bong securely and give it a vigorous shake, allowing the salt to scrub away the remaining residue.

Step 5: Scrub Away the Grime 

Using pipe cleaners or brushes, meticulously scrub the bowl, downstem, and other pieces that have soaked in the cleaning solution. Pay close attention to hard-to-reach areas, ensuring every nook and cranny receives the attention it deserves. Rinse them under warm water to witness the progress.

Step 6: Rinse and Repeat 

Rinse each piece under warm water, removing any traces of alcohol, salt, and residue. Ensure all the pieces are sparkling clean and free from any lingering substances.

Step 7: Dry and Reassemble

Gently pat each piece dry with a clean towel or let them air dry on a dish rack. Once they are completely dry, reassemble your bong, making sure all parts fit snugly and securely. Pour in fresh water and pack with herb when ready to smoke.
