How to clean your glass pipe

Before you begin cleaning your pipe, gather the following ingredients and materials:

  • A sealable plastic bag
  • Paper clip
  • 99% Isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol)
  • Table salt (sodium chloride) or epsom salt (magnesium sulfate)
  • Dish soap

Add a teaspoon of table salt (sodium chloride) or Epsom salt (magnesium sulfate). Either will work. Salt will act as a scrubber or sponge on resin where an actual sponge or brush can’t reach. Work the salt into the pipe as much as possible to ensure it’s fully doing the work of deep cleaning.

Shake the bag vigorously to loosen residual resin. If you’re using a container, skip this step to avoid breaking your pipe.
Leave the pipe to soak in the bag or container for about 12 hours. This will give the alcohol enough time to thoroughly dissolve the resin.
The pipe , a small, handheld device used to smoke cannabis, is one of the oldest and most common smoking methods in the world. Pipes remain popular cannabis smoking devices today, largely due to their availability, affordability, ease of use, and wide range of types, colors, and styles.
Give your pipe ample time to sit and dry before you use it again. If your pipe isn’t totally clean before you begin drying, repeat the previous steps and make sure to add new salt, as the salt from the first round of cleaning will have been largely dissolved.

Most of the supplies you can find either laying around your house, or you can pick up at the drug or hardware store.

Follow the same steps you would with the alcohol and salt method, but use your preferred solution instead. Also, you may want to freeze your glass piece first to allow the resin to harden which will allow you to dislodge easier.
Step 5: Seal Bag, and Shake Rapidly

Here’s what you’ll need…

  • A bottle of rubbing alcohol (90% isopropyl is more effective than a watered-down 71% solution)
  • Salt: Kosher, epsom or sea salt
  • A plastic sandwich bag
  • Rubber gloves (optional)
  • Cotton swabs and/or q-tips

Step 2: De-Gunk Your Piece
You have your favorite glass piece, but inevitably, it develops resin and other nasty residue. Most people don’t like a dirty pipe or bong. Worse, a dirty glass piece just doesn’t work as well as when it’s perfectly clean. So here are three clutch methods to clean your glass pipe:
