Glass pipes are one of the most popular smoking accessories that smokers use on a regular basis use. These pipes come in different sizes, and come in a variety of colors. Most glass pipes that are in use come in an abnormal shape, which lends them a unique look and smoking experience, but at the same time makes them harder for most people to clean.

Cleaning glass pipes is a challenge that a lot of smokers face, especially because glass is a delicate material and can easily crack or break altogether, which will mean that you have to buy a replacement. The main area of concern when cleaning glass pipes is the bottom of the pipe, which usually contains most of the residue from whatever was being smoked.

There are a variety of ways that a glass pipe can be cleaned depending on how clogged it is with leftover residue. Initially, most people would clean them by pouring hot water inside the glass pipe or submerging it in hot water to remove germs and melt any hardened residue. However, this method is not the best, as glass is known to crack when exposed to intense heat.

Glass pipes can be cleaned by using cleaning solutions using alcohol products, oxi-clean or any other substance that is environmentally friendly and can kill both germs and bacteria. These cleaning solutions can be used by dipping a cleaning brush that has bristles at the end and inserting it into the glass pipe. The glass pipe is then cleaned thoroughly, with the concentration on its many corners. Afterwards, it should be rinsed out with warm water.

Boiling the glass pipe is another effective way of cleaning it out, but with a few set conditions that have to be adhered to so that it is not destroyed. The process of boiling involves placing the glass pipe in a pan with water that is almost submerging it on a low heat burner. Then the heating process begins, but should be monitored so that the water does not heat up too fast. As the water boils the residue in the glass pipe will start to loosen and float inside the water, and at this point the burner should be turned off. Allow the pipe and the water around it to cool down before removing the pipe from the water and pouring out its contents.
