    white spirit/turps and coarse salt as an abrasive will work at a cheap pinch, but you'll need to really shake fuck out of it,

    best thing is some sort of alcohol solution, fuck i cant remember its full name, its generally known as ISO though i think, easy to get in the US, harder in the UK, as others have said Ebay is your best bet, I use RooR bong cleaner, which is a bit overpriced (6-7 quid a bottle) but works like a charm plus i can buy it locally

    As has been said, I use white spirit and corse sea salt, give it a good shake for about 5 mins then wash out with soapy water and then rinse with hot water, comes out sparkling.

    Cheers for all the advice will have to try them out. Asked the bloke in my local headshop and he recommended oven cleaner, says it works like a beaut but you really really need to rinse the fuck out of it once cleaned. Another lad who was in the shop told me to use cooking oil instead of water in the bong, he said stops all the resin sticking to the glass and makes no difference to the smoke, definitely trying that out.

    It's my first double filter bong and my biggest bong so I need to take good care of it and make sure it's my companion for years to come.

    ps. sorry for posting in wronf part of the forum.

    Tell your friend he's a retard, THC is soluble in oil and WILL filter it out.

    Rinse with hot water, then Isopropyl alcohol and cheap table salt is the best easiest way. It's the way we recommend. You can get the Isopropyl of e-bay cheap or boots will charge ya a arm n a leg but you only need a shot and pour in plenty of salt shake around for a few min rinse and repeat if nessacery, for any stuborn bits I sole a cotton bud in Iso and rub it like new in less than 5 min

    Isopropyl and salt is the only way you should clean your bong and from experience it takes under 3 minutes to get it fully clean. At first I was trying to use hot water and even Windex (window glass cleaner) lmao but that stuff never worked but when i started using iso everything changed and even grasshopper mentioned iso so it must be the popular way but even if it was not I would never go back.

    I clean my bong every week and I use a cleaner from USA called 420 bong cleaner. It has worked wonders for me everytime I use it! It has to be shook before use but only for 20 sec. After every bong clean session I like to add a little warm water with 70% alcohol not the 90% and above because there's no point in over doing it. The best tip I could give you is just learn to clean your bong using your own method as there are many out there that don't even make sense.

    I use alcahole wipes (AZO wipes). Think theyre soaked in IPA . Stick a couple in the bowl and poke em round with a stick and they fetch even thick tar straight off. All I smoke is my bong and have seen it in some right states but this cleans it up like new every time!

    I use 99% isopropyl alcohol and kosher salt in mine. It's important to start with the purest alcohol you can simply because you can reuse it and you're going to pick up more water every time you clean your bong. The kosher salt filters through my perks better.

    Isopropyl alcohol & salt for me too. Nothing else comes even close
