    Wow that much discussion... use a torch . Don't have torch us alcohol.... don't have alcohol use hair spay then soap and water. In no hairspray use windex or other household cleaners but use soap and water after.... if chems not enough add mild abrasive.. If u can't figure it out from there then perhaps u should not be doing drugs.....

    Well normally I do use a torch but I dont have one at the moment. To me that has always been the best method.
    I did do the bleach and microwave trick this time and it worked great. Equivalent cleaning power as a torch but much quicker.

    Then I.got super spun and used the bleach to make a kickass new tshirt :)

    There are many ways to clean a pipe. The bleach one does really work but sometimes u only have what u have. Now here is the tweakers list of possibilities....
    Acetone or other solvent.... is paint thinner, mineral spirits, nail polish remover etc.. no ?solvent then on to alcohol, no alcohol then on to cleaners start with windex and just go from there... no cleaners then try hairspray.... Now remember after using anything other than rubbing alcohol use soap and water afterwards. Q-tips work great for scrubbing just be careful. Now if whatever cleaner you have isn't working all the way add an abrasive. There are several u can use. Salt, ashes, sand, un-used cat litter, or even broken glass. Just be careful. Add some abrasive to cleaner and rub gently for asking as it takes.

    And for all those people out there with the "perfect pipe cleaning method" remember when u are a tweaker or are tweaking sometimes u only got what u got. McGyver that **** man.

    Nightowl added 1 Minutes and 34 Seconds later...

    Oh and of course the torch but I assumed you didn't have one or you wouldn't post here... that Go-To way

    @Nightowl hairspray? Thats the only one that stands out as a maybe not hah I would think it would make the glass sticky and if I used a q-tip on it I would have a bit of a mess.

    Are we really here again? Equi is a very experienced user and the best method he's found hands down is boiling in the microwave in a DILUTE solutiion of common household liquid bleach (Clorox, Purex etc, sodium hypochlorite, NOT the 5% ).
    1oz in 10-12 ozs of tapwater is safe and not even toxic to drink (well much less toxic than the meth that goes in it note DON'T drink it though) boil for abt 3 min, rinse dry w/ cotton swabs/ lighter or time and it's just like new.

    I can say that I've employed this method literally hundreds of times with no ill effects.

    I use sea salt as it seems to be more effective than table salt, q-tips, nail (not needed anymore).

    1.wet q-tip both ends
    2. Dab the tip of the q-tip in sea salt
    3. Stick in the bowl and scrub away
    4. Use wet end of q-tip without salt to retrieve salt from bowl
    5. Use dry q-tips to dry the inside off (I hold my pipe where a light is shining behind so I can get my pipe 100% spotless)

    The nail I used the pointy end of it to scrape the outside of the bowl off (I was setting my pipe down on fabrics and they were melting to the pipe. Just little dots all around the bottom. Be careful with a nail not to apply to much pressure it will cause scratching or breakage.

    That's how I do it.

    Putting some acetone in the pipe, covering both holes with fingers, shaking, then dumping all of the acetone, is probably the fastest way to dry the pipe.
    You see, acetone is used to dry laboratory glassware all the time. It evaporates really fast.

    Can't go past the bleach inthe microwave trick.

    Cleans it like new. If you have "Sweet puff" stamped on the stem it will get rid of that too lol

    I just put my pipe in a mug, fill it with bleach just over the bowl. Zap it in the microwave for 1 min 30. then wash it out througherly with water.
    Then i will either let it air dry or dry it off with a towel then get at it with the torch lighter to evap the rest of the moister.

    It comes out like new.

    If i want to just do a quick clean i will use magic eraser. Go over it once with a damp piece. Then go over it with a dry one. Works a treat too.

    Put it in a bowl of half water and half bleach then into a microwave for 2 minutes then use a Q-tip and what is left if anything at all just wipes off with out any real effort at all

    I've been trying to find some good ice in sydney but the last few times i've been ripped off and sold fake stuff . . so ive kinda quit looking. The last stuff just left a big hard brown burn on the inside of my pipe. I should clean it because no doubt I'll accidentally come across some gear again eventually by accident. I'm sure its been covered, but whats the best way to clean out a big burned mass out of the bottom of my bowl?

    When i had REAL stuff I would clean my bowl with magic eraser which was so much easier and faster than going out of my way to do the bleach methods

    Use a proper torch and evenly distribute the heat throughout the pipe. Keep it on a medium level flame and just let the heat do the work.

    If you don't have access to that, use a stove top. Anything with intense heat will clean it right up. Just be extremely careful, because overheating it, or cooling it off too fast can cause the glass to crack, or break, and debris can fly all around, even hurt you.

    Get a propane torch, lit about half, hold the torch with the flame facing away from you. Please be careful. U can get a smaller torch lighter too. Safer. Take a little longer. Hold the stem and the bowl facing up. Heat rises so be certain that the glass where you'll be heating will heat up ur fingers if you dont keep your hot spot up. Hold the torch steady and into the flame slowly rotate the glass and roll it thru the flame until u see the glass turn red and the "black stuff" is white ashy and gone! Continue tweakin it clean. Its quick. Simple. Keeps ur dope clear and tastin good. Not burnt nasty. My friend likes that burned dope taste. To each our own!! Holla!!

    When I smoked I would use water and a q-tip to clean out my pipe. My husband always holds the flame too close and that would really wear out our pipes a lot faster than normal. I slam now and he still smokes and he still fucks up his pipe from still holding that flame too close despite the fact I've told him numerous times about that...

    If the flame isn't held too close, the pipe will last a lot longer and your shit won't end up burnt, either. Also, get the medium to thick pipes and not the cheap ass ones that are too thin and will end up cracking on you while smoking or cleaning.

    Toothpaste works wonders for me. I just put a tiny bit onto a wet toothbrush and brush away the black stains, if they're stubborn it may take a few more seconds of brushing no big deal, as for the inside put a tiny bit onto a wet q tip rub it on the stupid hard black residue let it sit for a few seconds or minutes and then get a clean wet qtip and wipe, and if the lines still wanna be stubborn just add slight pressure, not to much obviously, and but just twist over the lines. That method has never failed me, just make sure you rinse ALL of the toothpaste out or its just going to cause what you had just gotten rid of.

    Re: cleaning meth


    lol this is exactly what i was gonna post. works like a charm. I'd also like to add from my own personal experience: once youve taken the coffee cup out of the microwave, let it sit under HOT tap water for a few seconds, and gradually reduce the water temp every 5-10 seconds or so, so as not to risk cracking your pipe with a sudden temperature change. Also, run a little soap and water through the pipe once its cool. Plug the two holes with your fingertips, shake the water around in it a little, rinse it out, then.... do it all one more time. I wasted an entire fresh bowl pack in a newly cleaned pipe bc the bleach smell/taste was still very prevalent. And I may be smoking meth, yes, but i'll be damned if i'm gonna inhale bleach vapor.

    This happened to my bunny, and I concur, 100 fucking percent that its a pain, to smoke around but not clean. Try torching the parasite (cover your nose) or magic eraser.

    This thread is a great example of how tweakers talk amongst other tweakers. Stating the same four ideas over and over again. Loops and loops and loops and loops. \

    Re: cleaning meth

    This is the shit that works!! Otherwise known as magic spounge. My pet unicorn said he saw it in a large hardware store in the cleaning section, whose name might rhyme with runnings.
