I clean my chillum frequently
As I smoke out of it more than any other device I have. But I clean all of them frequently as I do not like smoking out of any pipe that is too dirty. And my chillum gets dirty. But I have found an easy way to clean my chillum. I took a paperclip and bended it into a straight tool to push the resin out of the pipe. Which I then wipe on some toilet paper. Though when I was younger I saved it in an old medicine container for those hard up times. But I stopped doing that years ago so I wipe it on toilet paper now to throw out as you don't want to flush it down the sink as it will eventually clog your sink.
Once I get most of the resin out
I heat up the bowl to loosen the resin the the bowl as the heat makes it loosen up. Then once I have heated it up I use a little bit of tissue to wipe most of the resin out of the bowl.
The final step to getting the rest of the resin out
Is a hot water flush this part I do let go down the sink as it isn't very much. I run a little hot water through the pipe and then all that is left is to dry it up.
Fresh and clean
Just as clean as the day I purchased this 20 years ago. This is always how I have cleaned this pipe. And always will till the day I die or the day the pipe breaks because I am sure it is likely to happen eventually.
Now all that is left to do is pack it
I have some Blue Guava that I am packing into it. Then I am going to kick back and smoke it. I don't clean all my pipes this way as most require alcohol or pipe cleaner to clean but this is how I highly recommend cleaning a chillum. Makes it easy and quick and no chemicals needed to break it loose.
Clean pipes are important
As dirty pipes can carry more bacteria than a toilet seat. So clean your pipes regularly. Especially if you share them with friends during smoke sessions. It will help prevent you from getting sick. You wouldn't put a toilet seat in your mouth so don't put a dirty pipe there either.
Till next time stoners
It's 4:20 somewhere so puff puff pass. I am off to smoke that bowl.
