Shake well until you can see the resin starting to come off. Once a satisfactory amount of resin has come loose, pour out the alcohol and sea salt. Once you’ve cleared most of the resin from your bong, downstem, and bowl, use warm water to rinse them off. Lightly shake the bong as you rinse to wash away the remaining resin.
Before you reassemble the bong, rinse each piece thoroughly to make sure you don’t have any alcohol left over. If you find any residual resin after rinsing, repeat each step until it is flushed out. If you have a bong with extra filters or other features that make some areas harder to reach, try using pipe cleaners or cotton swabs. Remember, a well-made bong can last a lifetime, but it needs regular maintenance to fully function. The more you clean your bong, the less frequently you’ll have to deep-clean it.
