Smokers have their different tastes and preferences based on factors as smoking experience. We all have different inclinations and methods. Some people, instead of thinking about how they have to maintain a glass bong, may think about purchasing a new one. Smoking out of a dirty bong has lots of disadvantages. There is a decreased or an absence of filtration. At the same time, there is also a reduction in quality when it comes to the taste of whatever product you may be using. Well-maintained glass bongs have low levels of bacteria. Maintaining these glass bongs include:
Use filtered water to fill your bong
The unfiltered spring and tap water normally contain some mineral contents in them. Normally, when you open old pipe taps, you might happen to see brown clogging stains on the sides, which are always difficult to remove due to the mineral content. Filtration removes the mineral contents in the spring and tap water.
The same way when you fill your bong with unfiltered spring and tap water, it tends to leave brown stain marks on the sides which are always difficult to clean. Most importantly, use filtered water even if you are only cleaning the glass bong
Perhaps this is the most obvious reason for maintaining a bong. There are numerous ways of cleaning a bong. You can use the homemade remedy of cleaning glass using alcohol and also by using coarse salt. The cleaner the glass bong is, the shinier and more pleasant-looking it becomes. Cleaning is an activity that every glass bong smoker has to adapt with to not only maintain it, but also to prevent any adverse effects on the health of the user.
Constantly replacing the water
There are also molds, which scientifically tend to thrive in a moist environment. Mold stains are more rigorous than the brown water stains as they are more difficult and gross to remove. As we put it, prevention is better than cure. Changing water inside your bong on a frequent basis and conducting a thorough cleaning also on a regular basis will help save you the hustle and bustle of trying to remove the problematic mold stains.
Whether or not you’re using your glass bong, it is essential to store it safely in a secure place away from danger. Any imminent touch or drop on a glass bong highly increases the chances of breaking. The glass bongs come in hand with their hard cases and bong bags, which are, their ideal storage places.
