How to Clean a Bong


Cleaning your bong, bubbler, and/or pipe is something every cannabis user should know how to do. Nobody like’s drinking out of a dirty glass – just like no one wants to smoke out of a dirty bong.

Thankfully, cleaning your device is a relatively easy process that only requires a few ingredients and five minutes of your time. Keep reading to learn how to put that sparkle back in your bong✨  

Isopropyl Alcohol

Isopropyl Alchohol and Salt is probably the best and most cost effective way to get your glass looking brand new again. This can be purchased at most grocery stores or your local pharmacy for about $2. 99% Isopropyl Alcohol works the best, but as long as it is at least 70%, it should do the job.


Salt is going to act as an adhesive and will ensure all the built-up resin will come off nice and easy. 


  1. Pour small amount of alcohol & salt into bong/pipe
  2. Cover openings with a paper towel (make sure all openings are covered or you are in for quite a mess)
  3. Shake vigorously until all the resin has come off (tip: if you’re dealing with a lot of resin it may be necessary to let your glass soak for an hour or so in the alcohol & salt)
  4. Rinse with warm water
  5. Load a fresh bowl
  6. Taste the terps 😋
