Cleaning a Plastic Piece

One of the most asked questions I get is how do you clean a plastic bong or pipe?  My usual advice is to throw away the piece and buy glass.  The fact is that there are some people not in a position to have glass.  I do not own any acrylic and don’t know how to answer this question.  I do know not to use alcohol with plastic.   I am puting the question out there and hope you can help.  Leave a comment if you have a tip or some solid advice n how to clean a plastic/acrylic pipe or bong.

I leave you with some Aloha from Maui… aloha.jpg

    efferdent works wonders, I don’t use acrylic but it works great on my glass pieces (I doubt it would hurt the acrylic either)

  2. Sneaky Smoker Says:

    Well, some good ol’ fashion scrubbing, along with some soap and water works for me. but I dumped my acrylic and switched to glass :cheerful:

  3. Arthur Says:

    well 1 thing that works wonders is sunlight liquid
    the stuff you use to wash your dishes
    not normal soap that doesnt work as good then add some hot water and most of that left over just comes ryt off

    To clean acryl bongs use dish soap, hot water, shake a bit and let it sit.
    After that; if anything left in the bong, use dishsoap, a little bit of hot water (try to make no foam) and a bit of vegetable oil, that will help your sponge to take all the crap out.
    Buy a new sponge after 4 or 5 times ;-)

    Two years later and only four replies, none of them actually mentioning that scrubbing plastic can leave grooves which soap residue can then get trapped in, making your smoke impure and nasty. Methylated spirits and rock salt ftw. Swizzle the salt around the edges and it removes any grime. But by now I’m sure you’ve seen the error of your ways and upgraded to a glass piece :cool:

    My bong is combo of plastic body and copper components. The best way to clean it is to put copper parts in boiling water, added a lot of baking soda and the rest is hard mixing with a spoon while water is boiling, at least 10-15 minutes. It will be much better, if you change used dirty water with clean and do this procedure with added baking soda again. When you decide to stop with this boiling, add baking soda and vinegar in your empty pot. This will remove bad odour, afterwhile boiling water had cleaned up your metal parts.

    About the plastic – it could be cleaned pretty easy, so nothing special treatment by my side.
    Peace yo! 4:20 :tongue:

    Dishwashers, soap and water will not work when your plastic bong is nasty filthy. Today I used a quarter cup Mr. Clean, filled the bong halfway with warm water and added a teaspoon of a gritty soap. Shaked it well for 30 seconds. Filled the bong up with warm water. Let it sit for a half hour. Shake it again. Drain. Repeat. Then get yourself one of those round scrubbies and give it some mild scrubbing and bong is clean. It was not good as new but it was transparent. Transparency was all I was looking for.

    Efferdent. Preferably the smokers one

  15. snooty snoot Says:

    I prefer glass but I keep an acrylic bong around as a travel/emergency bong. Honestly, you can try soap and water, you can try vinegar(good luck getting rid of that smell), but in interest of full disclosure, your acrylic bong will never look like it did when you bought it. When my acrylic bong gets dirty, I throw it out and go buy a new one. There was a point when I only used acrylic, and I was buying a new bong every month. So I saved that money for two months and bought myself a nice glass piece.

    Trying to clean an acrylic bong is like trying to re-use toilet paper. It’s just not going to work out for you.

  16. Kyle Says:

    I find hot water soap and a bottle brush work best…and you can certainly have them looking Like new… It just takes effort.. My sister can spend 20 minutes on a bong with a millimeter of grunch stuck to it and have it looking like new just gave to want it and put in the effort… Elbow grease goes a long way…if you use a bottle brush some thing with the end so the metal doesn’t scratch your bong

  17. C-swizzle Says:

    I would NOT recommend doing this. After a few runs through the dishwasher, both my mom and I have had blackouts after smoking. I think it could be from the breakdown of the plastic and possibly BPA.

  18. bean420 Says:

    Take the metal pieces out and soak in 99% while you use hot water (not boiling) and a good amount of oil (olive, vegetable -NOT an essential oil) and rock salt. The water just helps move the oil. The oil acts as the solvent and the rock salt provides gentle abrasion. Extra oil when brushing out any tough stuff. Then more hot water and dish soap to get all the oil out. Cold water and baking soda to make it smell like new.

    Pieces should have soaked enough that pipe cleaner or q tip should easily clean them.

    Happy medicating! :wink:

  19. bean420 Says:

    Lol 99% alcohol for pieces, then for bong move to oil, water, salt mix. Sorry, just cleaned my piece …Then used it! :D

    Well i just use a pipe cleaner after soaking my plastic/metal pipe in hot salt water it work like wonder :alien:

  24. dis guy Says:

    see the thing is vinegar and salt doesn’t quite do the trick if you really want to get that thing clean it just boils down to scrubbing with a sponge and some hot/warm water atleast if u can get ur finger in it but that leaves half dirty cus u cant reach that far so u’ll have to go on with like a stick or bong brush or so p.s the cleaners do work quite nice :sideways:

    There is this stuff you get from puff puff pass or 420 stores. It’s called purple power. Cost 10 bucks. Makes your bong like brand new. My was SUUUPER dirty and after using that it looked brand new no resin at all. Works wonders try it. It is made for acrylic bongs.

  28. Sea_stoner420 Says:

    Just let it soak in some hot soapy water. It’s a real pain for me because my plastic piece is a bubbler but it looks like a bong which means it’s got a choke which makes cleaning and soaking a pain in the ass. But the easiest thing to do is let it soak in a container. Happy smoking! :tongue:

    Asking questions are actually pleasant thing if you are not understanding anything totally, however this paragraph offers nice understanding even.

    Spray Nine. I’ve had my acrylic bong for years now. And when I clean it, it still looks brand new. Doesn’t etch or break down the plastic and doesn’t leave and scratches or grooves. Very little scrubbing needed. Just spray and let it sit. I use an old tooth brush to give it a light scrub. Rinse well and good as new. Your welcome. Btw, I only have an acrylic bong as a car bong. Glass price stays home. Lol

    You’re amazing! Thanks!

  35. StonyMcStoner Says:

    Easy way to clean a plastic or acrylic bong is with hot water and vegetable oil. Other oils like sunflower or olive will work in a pinch. I have always used Smokemasters or Tokemasters. They will clean right up with this method. Use a brush. once clean, rinse and clean with dishsoap and you’re good to go. 10 minutes and it’s done.

    Superb blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally confused .. Any suggestions? Many thanks!
