You’ve got your rig ready, and it’s time to do a dab! Your blowtorch is in one hand; a dab tool dipped into crystal clear, high-quality dab concentrate in the other. This is going to be delicious! Precious memories of bong cleaners start to pop in to your head. You heat your nail, exhale, put your mouth over the mouthpiece touch the tool to the nail, inhale, and… Yuck! A harsh, resinous smoke grinds your throat and you cough uncontrollably. Your eyes tear up, and your lungs scream for water to put out the fire burning in your chest. But no beverage will wash the lingering taste of tar, copper, and cool off of your palate anytime soon.
This is premium quality dab concentrate! Why does it taste so foul? Then you realize... You haven’t cleaned your dab rig in months! The resin is crusted on every interior surface, the nail is covered in soot, and it looks like your rig water is colonizing sea monkeys.
You can buy the highest quality herb or concentrates but vaporizing it out of a filthy dab rig is just a waste of money. Don’t waste another valuable dab vaping out of a dirty rig. You deserve the best; get your rig BOOM clean and get the most out of your concentrates.
Eventually, every tobacco pipe enthusiast faces the issue of dirty tar building up in their chosen method of delivery. Whether you use a complex glass water pipe full of percolators and mini filters or a simple one-hitter, you’re eventually going to lose flavor and gain a harsh throat hit as a result of stinky, sticky resin.
BOOM's goal is to provide our customers with the best way to clean without using harsh chemicals or spending hours of scrubbing. We’ve accomplished that goal with our selection of resin cleaners. But we’re not just for water pipes anymore: The five simple steps below can be used to make any pipe of any size or shape look better-than-new in minutes.
Pour It Fill your device with a cleaner designed to remove resin and tar. We recommend using Resolution Gel to ensure successful cleaning without leaving any harmful chemicals behind to ruin your smoke. If you’re cleaning your favorite silicone travel piece, Eyce Silicone Cleaner is the best cleaner for you.
Cap It Keep things clean and tidy by sealing all openings of your water pipe. Res Caps are specifically designed to cap your pipe in order to keep the cleaner inside your pipe and away from your furniture, clothes and floors.
Shake It Ensure that all openings are sealed and shake that pipe like a Polaroid picture! The more vigorously you shake it, the harder your cleaner will work to remove stubborn resin from your precious glass. Scrub It Sometimes shaking your pipe just isn’t enough to remove the most stubborn buildup from the interior of your pipe. Scrubber Duckys make scrubbing the inside of your pipe just as easy as wiping down the outside.
Rinse It Uncap your pipe, flush the dirty cleaner down the drain and rinse it with clean water. Wipe your pipe down with a clean paper towel or allow it to air dry.
Smoke It! You’re done!
There’s no drag more satisfying than that first hit from a squeaky clean pipe. Get your pipe BOOM clean and enjoy a healthier and more flavorful tobacco smoke today.
Now that you know how to get resin out of your water pipe with resin & glass cleaners, think all the other ways a non-toxic resin cleaner can be of use to you.
Say goodbye to sticky silicone dab mats, dab sticks, nails, grinders, one-hitters, coffee tables, counter-tops and storage jars. The uses of BOOM cleaners are limited only by your imagination!
Can I clean my bong with rubbing alcohol and salt?
While it’s true that isopropyl or rubbing alcohol and salt are readily available, it’s far from the best way to clean your bong or pipe. Alcohol-based cleaners tend to be abrasive, which can damage your equipment, and your health, over time. Using our cleaners is a much safer option.
What are VOCs, and why do they matter?
VOCs (volatile organic compounds) are compounds that have a high vapor pressure and low water solubility. The high vapor pressure causes molecules to be emitted as gasses from certain solids or liquids (e.g. isopropyl). These VOCs are pollutants that can have short- and long-term effects on someone’s health. Chemicals like isopropyl are extremely high in VOCs, which can cause problems if it’s continually used to clean your glass and equipment.
How often should I clean my water pipe?
For many users, it can be difficult to know when to clean your water pipe. We suggest tailoring your cleaning schedule based on your usage. If you’re a heavy consumer, cleaning it once every one or two days can be the best. If you’re a moderate user, the simplest approach would be to clean your piece after each use.
Besides glass water pipes, what else can your products clean?
Our products can clean a wide variety of related surfaces devices: water pipes, extraction tubes, oil and rigs, grinders, sinks, and even fabric. Our cleaning products are more versatile than traditional cleaning materials like isopropyl and abrasive salts.
How fast do your products clean?
Most commercial cleaners require users to soak their pieces in their solution 24 hours. Many of the cleaners that we offer, on the other hand, can clean pieces within 15-30 minutes.
Why are your products better for the environment?
At Boom Headshop, we ensure that we only offer environmentally safe, biodegradable products. Our products are absent of many of the harsh solvents and chemicals commonly found in other commercial cleaners. Our products are low in VOCs, which reduces the impact to indoor and outdoor air quality.
Best bong cleaning supplies
Some people keep their pieces clean. They drain the water out of their bongs and rinse them out between uses. They fill them with salt and rubbing alcohol to get every ounce of resin out, then sanitize in the dishwasher. Finally, they polish their favorite pipe with a fine cloth and display it on the mantle for the company to see.
That’s what some people do.
For the rest of us, there are bong and pipe cleaning kits. Typically, a pipe can go a week or two without a good cleaning. Even daily smokers sometimes forget to clean their glassware until it’s completely caked in sticky resin. That resin ruins the flavor of each puff you take and could add dozens of toxins to the smoke. It’s ruining the looks of your gorgeous, hand-blown glassware. And worst of all…it stinks.
Our glass bong & pipe cleaning kits include everything you will need for getting your bong, dab rig or pipe clean:
Liquid pipe cleaners – Solvents that dissolve resin for easier cleanup
Cleaning caps – caps to keep all openings in a water pipe closed while it’s being shaken with a solvent or scrubbers
Resin blockers – Protective agents that keep the resin from building up.
Check out our selection of innovative bong and pipe cleaners and accessories. Clean glass is an essential part of living a healthy lifestyle. Clean glass pipes and bongs save you from inhaling toxic resin and tar. Clean your glass bongs with one of our environment friendly glass cleaning solutions.
Ordered a Puffco Peak Pro from Boom Headshop and what a great experience it has been. The order arrived within three days coming from Denver to Sarasota. It was packed well and inside the box was a bag of Starburst Chews taffy candy. This gift really went a long ways towards a great customer experience. I then opened the box, opened the case of the Puffco Peak Pro and admired the design. After reading the owners guide I installed the Android Puffco App and proceeded to test it out. Everything about this product was first class. I like the design. It's well built, easy to use and the results are awesome. I use the app exclusively just because it makes it so easy to use. I rate both Boom Headshop and Puffco Peak Pro 5 Stars.
First cap I bought just to test the waters and it's still one of the ones I consistently go back to using. I can't use it on some of the more wider bangers but it works very well on all the medium and small ones I've tried. I can also reheat the banger without taking it off and it's never even been close to getting to hot to still handle. Will definitely buy another if the one I have now ever breaks, but it seems sturdy enough that I probably won't need another for a while!
