Additionally, standing water serves as a breeding ground for bacteria and mold.
Now that we’ve persuaded you to clean up that filthy bong of yours let’s go through what you’ll need and how to go about it. In addition, here are a few pointers because we care about you.
How to Care for and Clean a Bong?
First, we’ll have a look at what to do.
Dismantle your bong with extreme caution. Remove the mouthpiece, bowl, and any other extras from the mouthpiece. Remove any contaminated water and rinse thoroughly with clean water.
Step 2: Fill the chamber with isopropyl alcohol, allowing a small space between the bottles. After that, add two to three teaspoons of coarse salt to taste. Because the isopropyl alcohol works as a disinfectant and cuts through the oils in the remaining sticky resin, it is also used as an abrasive, and salt is also used.
Step 3: Shake the bong violently with your hand, covering the top of the bong. Allow for a maximum of 10 minutes of soak time.
Step 4: Toss the solution in the trash. Clean the inside of the bong with a paper towel, and if the bong is too narrow, use a bottle brush to scrub the inside of the bong.
Step 5: Clean the inside with clean water, cover the top with a clean cloth, and shake and empty the contents. Repeat as many times as necessary.
Step 6: The exterior of the bong should be cleaned with dish soap and a sponge.
Step 7: To clean loose parts, make careful to remove any debris from the area, particularly the sink basin. Using a zip-top bag filled with isopropyl alcohol and a couple of tablespoons of salt, soak all loose pieces in the solution for ten minutes.
Step 8: Shake the bag well, then rinse the pieces thoroughly with water until clean.

Tip 2: Keep your bong away from direct sunlight.
Bacterial and algae development will occur in your bong due to dirty water. If you neglect to clean your bong, keeping it out of direct sunlight will help prevent bacteria growth. Summerland bongs are made of ceramic and are opaque, which prevents ultraviolet exposure to contaminated water from occurring.
Tip 3: Salt is your best buddy.
When cleaning your bong, salt acts as an abrasive, removing any stuck-on muck and grime accumulated. Salt might also be beneficial before beginning a bong session. “Before you start smoking, dissolve salt into your bong water,” he suggests. “Rather than the inside of your bong’s chamber, harsh elements may be responsible for attaching salt molecules.” Dump it and rinse it thoroughly, and you’ll find that you’ll need to clean it less frequently. “I’m talking about you.
