How to Clean a Bong Bowl or Slide
Let’s focus on your bowl and slide
Assuming you can still get air through your slide you should be able to squirt a small amount of Kryptonite through your slide. Since Kryptonite is safe for your hands, even if you get a little of the tar on your hands from the process of coating your slide, no problem. Simply put a couple drops of Kryptonite in your hand and wash with water to remove the burnt plant smell from your hands almost instantly.
Use a plastic bag or q-tip
Now place your slide into a Ziploc bag to ensure the inside/outside are coated. You should be able to reuse this solution for several cleans. If you’re a traditional smoker and use flower, add Kryptonite into the bottom of the bowl and coat the top area where your herb goes and simply place in the same Ziploc bag as the stem.
Now simply relax. The time it takes Kryptonite to clean varies depending on how much you clean. If your pipe is filthy then it will take 30 minutes. If you clean more frequently, it will take significantly less time. Use your best judgment on how long to let Kryptonite to sit. It should be noted that Kryptonite has an incredibly low VOC (under 3%) which means it won’t evaporate like acetone or alcohol and will simply remain on the glass until you wash it clean.
If you’re a heavy flower user, like me, and in a hurry, then use a Q-tip to wash both the outside bowl and run the Kryptonite inside the bowl.
Now rinse with warm water. Your bowl should look brand new.
