Cannabis cleaning - Tips and Tricks on How to Clean Your Cannabis Accessories

Keeping your cannabis accessories clean is a very important part of your cannabis routine.

You don't want to smoke a dirty bong or vape, so keeping them clean is crucial to ensure that you're getting the most out of your smoking experience. In this article, we'll discuss some different tips and tricks on how to clean your smoking accessories and make sure that they stay in good condition for years to come.

Soap and water

Cleaning your cannabis accessories is easy. In fact, you can do it with soap and water! Just use warm water and a soft cloth or paper towel to wipe down your product. Don't use harsh chemicals or abrasive materials; these will damage the finish on your accessories. And don't apply heat - it's important that you don't let anything get above room temperature when cleaning it or else you could warp the plastic parts of your products!

Isopropyl alcohol or rubbing alcohol

Isopropyl alcohol, or rubbing alcohol, is a common household item, and can be found in the medicine cabinet. It's a great cleaning agent for glass pipes and other smoking accessories. Isopropyl alcohol is also great for cleaning your hands after handling cannabis. You can find it at most drugstores or online retailers such as Amazon - just make sure to look for 99% (or higher) concentration!

Formula 420

Vinegar, water and salt can be used to clean your glass pipes.

For this method, you will need the following ingredients:

2 tablespoons of white vinegar

1 tablespoon of salt

1 gallon warm water (enough to fill up your entire pipe)

Lemon juice and hot water

Because lemon juice is acidic, it can remove resin and other sticky substances from your cannabis accessories. The hot water helps to remove the remaining particles of lemon juice and clean any leftover grime after washing with lemon juice.

To clean your cannabis accessories with this method, first soak them in a solution of equal parts water and lemon juice for 30 minutes to an hour. Hot water will help release any residual resin from the surface of your accessories, so make sure that you use water that's as hot as possible without causing damage to any metal pieces on your accessories (you may want to put them in a plastic bag first). Then rinse all pieces thoroughly under very hot running water until no more soap residue remains; if there are still spots of leftover sticky substance visible on certain parts, repeat steps 1-3 again until all areas have been thoroughly cleaned.

Pipes, bongs and water bubblers

It's not always easy to find the right tool for the job. Luckily, there are many different tools that can help you clean your pipes, bongs and water bubblers. Here's a list of some of the most commonly used tools:

  • A pipe cleaner (aka a q-tip) is often used to clean out smaller pipes or bowls. They're usually made from cotton swabs, which allows them to bend into spaces where other materials cannot reach easily.
  • A cotton swab or tamp has similar uses as a pipe cleaner but it tends to be smaller and less flexible than one might need for cleaning larger pieces like bongs or water bubblers (although this depends on which type you choose).
  • Pipe brushes are typically used in conjunction with other cleaners such as alcohol wipes because they tend not to get down into small places very well without some help from these other products first!

Dabbing rigs

For dabbing rigs, you can use rubbing alcohol to clean the glass. You need a paper towel to catch the alcohol and avoid spilling it all over your rig. Hot water should not be used as it may damage your glass.


If you're using a portable vaporizer, cleaning is a bit more involved. But don't let that scare you.

The first thing to do is remove all of the parts from the vape, so it's easier to clean them individually. Then place everything in an ultrasonic cleaner or pot of boiling water (only use boiling water if no animal fat or dairy products are present in your vaporizer) and allow them to soak for at least 15 minutes before removing them and drying with a paper towel. If there are any residues left behind after cleaning, use isopropyl alcohol on a cotton swab or Q-tip to remove them thoroughly; this will help avoid build up when using your device again in the future.

If you clean your vaporizers regularly (at least once per week), then there won't be much residue build up, and if you're diligent about keeping things clean between uses as well as during each session, then they'll stay looking fresh even longer!

Cleaning your accessories is key in ensuring you do not put toxins into your body.

The first step in the process is to clean your accessories. Cleaning your accessories will remove any residue and bacteria that can get into your system when you use them, and it will also keep them from stinking up your place.

Keeping your cannabis accessories such as bongs, pipes or vaporizers clean will ensure no residual toxins remain inside the pipe which could cause damage to your lungs over time if inhaled regularly enough over long periods of time.


We hope this article has helped you understand how to clean your cannabis accessories. Cleaning them is key in ensuring you do not put toxins into your body. It’s important to always make sure that any cleaning solution is completely non-toxic and safe for consumption before using it on anything that will come into contact with your herb or flower. If there’s one thing we want readers to take away from this post, it would be “clean your stuff!”
