No, you cannot put a glass bong in the dishwasher. The high heat and water pressure of the dishwasher can cause the glass to break.
What is a bong?
A bong is a water pipe typically used to smoke cannabis. It consists of a bowl, stem and base. The bowl is where you place your cannabis and the stem is the small tube that goes from the bowl to the base. The base is typically made of glass and filled with water. Bongs come in many different shapes and sizes, but they all work in essentially the same way.
When you light your cannabis and take a hit, the smoke is drawn through the water and into the stem. The water cools the smoke and makes it smoother and easier to inhale. This Cooling effect also allows you to take bigger hits without coughing as much.
How to clean a bong
Cleaning a bong is important for many reasons. Residue and bacteria can build up in your bong, which can make it difficult to hit, decrease the taste of your herb, and be harmful to your health. Additionally, a dirty bong is just plain gross. No one wants to hit a bong that’s caked with old ash and resin.
Fortunately, cleaning a bong is pretty easy. You can clean your bong with just a few simple household materials: rubbing alcohol, salt, and some hot water.
Here’s how to do it:
1) Empty your bong of all water and herb.
2) Pour some rubbing alcohol and salt into the bong. The ratio doesn’t have to be exact, but you should use more rubbing alcohol than salt.
3) Swirl the mixture around in the bong so that the rubbing alcohol and salt coats the inside of the bong.
4) Let the mixture sit in the bong for a few minutes so that it can break down the residue and bacteria.
5) Rinse out the bong with hot water. Make sure to get all of the salt out of the bong so that it doesn’t end up in your hit when you smoke.
Can you put a glass bong in the dishwasher?
You can put a glass bong in the dishwasher, but you need to be careful. Many dishwashers have a heating element that can get hot enough to break glass, so it’s important to check your dishwasher’s manual before putting any glassware in it. It’s also a good idea to put your bong in the top rack of the dishwasher to avoid any accidental breaking.
Why you shouldn’t put a glass bong in the dishwasher
Glass bongs are delicate instruments and need to be treated with care. If you’re planning on putting your bong in the dishwasher, you might want to think again.
The high temperatures and harsh chemicals in dishwashing detergent can cause the glass of your bong to break or crack. In addition, the detergent can get trapped in the small crevices of your bong, making it difficult to clean properly. For these reasons, it’s best to avoid putting your glass bong in the dishwasher.
How to clean a bong without a dishwasher
If you don’t have a dishwasher, don’t worry—you can still clean your bong with items you probably have lying around your home. All you need is some water, salt, rubbing alcohol, and a little elbow grease.
Here’s how to do it:
- Fill your bong with warm water and add a few drops of dish soap. Swish the water around to get all the surfaces of your bong wet.
- Add 1/4 cup of salt to the water and swish it around again. The salt will act as an abrasive and help remove any residue that’s stuck to the inside of your bong.
- Pour out the soapy water and rinse your bong with clean water.
- Fill your bong with rubbing alcohol—enough to cover all the surfaces you want to clean. Swish the alcohol around and let it sit for a few minutes before dumping it out.
- Rinse your bong one last time with clean water and let it air dry before using it again
We would not recommend putting your bong in the dishwasher as it could potentially break. It is best to clean your bong by hand using soap and water.
