I just made a weak dish-soap/water mix, dipped an old briar pipe in it, and it did OK. It could have been better, but then, I don't think I had a very good soap to water ratio. Granted, it's been quite a while since I used a toy bubble pipe, but do they have anything special about 'em?
I thought they were pretty much just like smoking pipes -- a reservoir/bowl attached to a stem, just used in reverse. Mind you, the wood will be more absorbant than the plastic of a toy pipe, and might not stand up to heavy daily use. Do not do this with a pipe that anyone will ever want to smoke from again. and indeed, you're probably best off buying a new pipe, so that there's less of a tarry foul mud produced in the bowl. But, nothing says verisimilitude like the thing itself. Rohto ® is known for its revolutionary packaging with the unique bottle design and single drop dispenser for easy, mess-free application.

Why do some Rohto ® products have child-resistant caps?

If the cap turns without engaging the base, it will not open properly. How long do Rohto ® eye drops keep once they have been opened?

However, some eye drops should not be used with contact lenses. Medicated eye drops are rarely intended for use with contact lenses. Thus, if you have an eye infection such as pink eye, your best bet is to avoid contact lenses while using prescribed eye drops. Similarly, if you are using medicated drops for allergies or have an eye injury, it's best to avoid lenses while using the drops and waiting for your eyes to heal. If you are using over-the-counter, non-medicated eye drops to relieve dryness or irritation, you'll find that there are three available categories of drops: “dry eye" eye drops, “get the red out” eye drops, and “contact lens” eye drops. Contact lens eye drops are often called re-wetting drops.
Re-wetting drops lubricate your eye and hydrate the contact lens, making your eyes more comfortable while wearing your contact lenses.
