Cleaning Your Water Pipe With Coarse Salt is Abusive to your Water Pipe
You heard me! Don't be abusive to your water pipe guys, nobody likes a water pipe beater.
There is literally thousands of articles preaching to use Salt and Alcohol and even to substitute vinegar. We have seen lemon juice, baking soda, white vinegar, nail polish remover, and I'm telling you right now it's all a waste because all these methods need coarse salt to do the actual cleaning.
The truth is these methods helps break down the resin to a degree, but it's the coarse salt you are using and the vigorous shaking that knocks the bad stuff off your water pipe. That's a ton of effort for not a lot of results.
Abrasive salt has a sandpaper-like effect. Over time, it can degrade your water pipe and create scratches and grooves. Unwanted resin can seep into the scratched grooves, making your precious glass incredibly hard to clean the next round. Overtime bacteria and mold can build in these tiny grooves, sound like something you want to inhale? How about let's not!
Can You Use Isopropyl Alcohol to Clean a Water Pipe?
Alcohol seems like a perfect solution for cleaning water pipe because of how harsh and abrasive it is- we'll just let that soak in.
Harsh and abrasive. Two words that sound good when you're thinking of cleaning a dirty toilet, but not for cleaning a device you will put your mouth on and put a flame up to.
Alcohol contains 100% VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds). VOCs are fumes, gases emitted that pollute the air. Alcohol is 100% toxic.
In states like California and Colorado, it is illegal to dispose of isopropyl alcohol down the drain.
Isopropyl Alcohol is characterized as hazardous waste. If you pour your alcohol down the sink, you're pouring contaminated IPA into the sewer. You will jeopardize your respiratory wellness by polluting the air you breath and the environment you live in if you choose to clean your water pipe with alcohol.
