    throw them away and buy a glass one :laugh:

    just kidding bro, i'd assume if they're stainless steel you could boil them and most of the resin will come off. careful though it will stink when you boil them.

    I used to when I first got mine. Then the taste kinda wore off, or I got used to it.


    I only smoke hash through my metal pipe, I've got lots of build up, not quite resin, more oily type substance. I was wondering if I could smoke it and if it would be any good?

    You can use alcohol pads or just alcohol and toilet paper.

    I took mine apart and soaked them in alcohol which dissolved the tars and stuff then finished off with a few q-tip swabs and tissue till it was done. I also wrapped a paper towel around the eraser end of a pencil the cleaned out the bottom of the bowl.

    Just let it si in rubbing alcohol for awhile. Then find anything you can that will fit in the hole and try to scrape out any leftover resin. That should clean it pretty good

    Put the pipe in a jar with 90% isopropyl alcohol and salt. The isopropyl alcohol should be a minimum of 90%. You can find the alcohol at white trash Walmart. You can also put the jar with the alcohol and salt and your pipe in a bowl of hot water to accelerate the process. Just don't heat the alcohol with anything except hot tap water. If you have plastic parts on the pipe or anything plastic do not use salt as it will crack plastic. Just use plain alcohol. Vodka may be used in lieu of isopropyl alcohol.
