Let's start with the Hookah tutorial now:
Cleaning Your Washable Hookah Hose
- You would need some orange juice, hot water, and a funnel. It would be better if you follow the procedure near the washbasin to prevent mess around your room.
- First, take out the hose. Remove the mouthpiece if there is any. Block one end with your thumb and put in the funnel on the other one. It prevents spillage.
- Now, put in a little bit of orange juice. Give it a shake – take one end higher than the other. Repeat with the other. It will make the juice flow in through the hose – cover the whole area inside.
- Now, fill up half of the tube with some hot water. Remove the funnel, clog that end with your thumb and shake it again.
- Lower one end into the basin, remove your thumb, let the water drain out.
- Put in the funnel once again, fill it up with some water and make the water run through it. It helps to remove the traces of orange juice from inside.
- Blow air through the hose; it will force out all the remaining drops of water.
- Swing it; believe it or not, swinging it great to drive out water and other particles.
- Hang it on some hook or coat hanger with both ends down and air dry for a couple of hours.
That's it your hose is clean. Next hookah session, you will notice the difference in the flavor and pat your back for cleaning it up.
