How to Clean Your Bong and Can It Go in the Dishwasher?

Posted on September 04 2017

The age-old question of how to clean a bong is a fascinating one. In the past, bong smokers have all allowed things to go too far, gone too long without cleaning, and what appeared as a result was a murky brown film at the bottom of the bong, dotted with further splotches of an even darker brown. Not the prettiest sight even for the hardest, most experienced smoker. But don’t despair, there are ways in which you can clean your cone and ensure that the pull is nice, smooth and easy on the lungs.

First, we better answer the question of whether you can put a bong in the dishwasher. 

So, Can It? 

Look, people have different opinions on the matter, but here at The Bong Shop, we give this answer a resounding no. We’ve heard horror stories in the past of peoples’ bongs cracking or even breaking, and not only that, it often doesn’t have the best result – especially if you’ve allowed your bong to get really filthy over a period of time. We don’t believe it is worth the risk and we also believe that there are many better options for cleaning. Certain tools and methods are better for ensuring your bong is clean and ready to be enjoyed - read on to find out what they are. 

Cleaning Products 

They do make proper cleaning products, and they are a much more effective method of cleaning than chucking the bong in the dishwasher and hoping for the best. For starters, there are designated bong brushes that get right into the chamber, specially rubbing out that filthy brown staining that accumulates at the bottom of a dirty bewg. Coupled with the nectar of Pourite Glass Cleaner, and you’ve got yourself a foolproof method of cleaning out the nasty brown stains your bong accumulates after several sessions.

Not only this, they have even created handy little pipe cleaners, for ensuring that your peace pipe is always clean and not producing any of that rank smoke that can be synonymous with this little gadget.
