Alcohol Treatment

It’s absolutely amazing/disgusting how well a pipe cleaner dipped in 151 proof alcohol cleans a stem. I cleaned my new stems with regular dry pipe cleaners until they came out white last night. This evening, as I was trying the Professor’s Salt Sweetening technique, I soaked some pipe cleaners in Bacardi 151 and ran them through the same stems I had cleaned the night before. They came out completely brown and gross. Needless to say this will now be part of my new routine.

Cleaning with strong alcohol probably only needs to be done once every 3-4 times you smoke a pipe, with general cleanings you can try using a little B&B or Jack Daniels.

    That is awesome. I can’t wait to try it out with 151. So far I’ve only tried B&B and Maker’s Mark. Now let’s see how the salt treatment goes for ya. Remember to use just enough alcohol to wet the salt to the edge of the bowl.
