How to Clean a One Hitter Pipe

Cleaning your pieces may seem like a task. What tools to use or how to clean certain areas of your equipment. Sometimes the cleaning process could take up to few hours if you are not doing it right. In this article, we will teach you how to work smarter, not harder.

 

The Supplies You'll Need To Create A Cleaning Solution For Your One Hitter Pipe And Other Glass Pieces

Start off by gathering all the necessary supplies, most of which you might already have laying around your pad:

  • Isopropyl alcohol or rubbing alcohol
  • A Ziploc bag
  • Tablespoons of sea salt
  • Warm water
  • A Q-Tip, paperclip, or pipe cleaner to clean in the parts that are hard to reach to get the extra gunk out.

Cleaning a glass one-hitter piece is similar to cleaning a metal one-hitter, as both requires basically the same supplies. Alternatively, purchase a pre-made cleaning solution to get the same result.

 

How To Deep Clean Your Metal One Hitter And Your Glass One Hitter

1. Start by collecting your supplies and place the piece inside a plastic bag and put your piece in it. Add in the isopropyl alcohol until the piece is fully submerged.

2. Add 2-3 ounces of hot water, add a tablespoon of salt, and now you are ready for the cleaning portion.

3. Just tightly close the bag, and shake the bag hard enough to lose the debris inside. The water will start to turn darker, that is all the buildup coming out of the pipe.

Stoners are resourceful as we all know, so if this cleaning method doesn't do anything for you, there are other ingredients and methods to get your piece looking like a new one-hitter. Try a more natural solution made of salt and vinegar or baking soda and vinegar to get similar results, or just literally place your piece in a pot of boiling water. Finally, use a pipe cleaner or paperclip to scrape out the buildup. Before you know it, you are ready to start smoking again! Don't forget to rinse all the chemicals out before lighting up for a smoke session.

 

How Often You Should Clean Your One-Hitter And Tips To Keep It Clean

Keeping your one-hitter clean after a deep cleaning session doesn't have to be time-consuming. It's recommended to just rinse with water and use a pipe cleaner after each session. Utilize the deep cleaning method every few days to keep your piece clean, safe, and always ready to smoke out of.
