The everclear experiments gave me an idea. I thought it would be an awesome way to clean glass so I gave it a try. WoW!! Never had anything clean pieces this well, this fast, with such little effort.

Gather all your sticky, dirty, half clogged pipes together. No need to use pipe cleaners or otherwise 'pre clean' them.

Carefully load the glass, bowl end down, into a jar. Fill the jar with cheap ol' rubbing alcohol. The 70% stuff works great.
Upload

Place the jar of pipes/alcohol in a double boiler and turn on the stove. Bring to a boil, and allow the alcohol to boil in the jar for half an hour. You may need to add a bit more alcohol as it evaporates. You may also need to add a bit of water to the pan. Don't let it boil dry.
Upload

After half an hour turn off the stove. Allow to cool enough to handle with your hands. Remove the pipes from the jar and rinse for a second or two under the faucet with hot water to remove the alcohol and any particles of sediment. Put a lid on the jar and save the alcohol for next time. It can be reused several times. Please, no lectures on using alcohol near a stove. Everybody knows to be careful. Here's the results.

Wow. I can not express what joy this will bring to my friends and I. Might be better than when I showed them two syringes of everclear that was really 14 grams of mushrooms (and, believe me, they were impressed by that), but it's hard to say.

Question one - did you soak it in that alcohol before you boiled? If so, how long?

Question two - you mean this took no scrubbing or picking or anything like that?

Question three - does it even clean the "far side" of the bowl? The opposide side of the carb/clear that is virtually impossable to clean?

Please, no lectures on using alcohol near a stove. Everybody knows to be careful.

lol - for real

Hellooooooooo? Coil stove? Fan? Not rocket science, even for us stoners out there. Sadly, one of these days some dipshit will use a gas burner...it's probably already happened...

Great job, Rodger, always glad to see another installment in the Mad Science Lab.
Then again, you should remember you are conversing with a crazy person.

You don't need to soak or pre-clean in any way. I don't even scrape the bowl clean. Yes, the alcohol boils up through the pipe if you put it bowl down. Think of it as the way a coffee pot works. Boil the pipes in alcohol for half an hour and they are brand new clean. Guaranteed.

My buddy would clean his glass by placing the pieces in a ziploc baggie add alcohol + lots of salt...shake shake shake and voila! never tried it myself but would do a damn fine job on his gunked up pipes.

I alwyas boiled in water, this makes a lot more sense and seems more effective. :-) Thanks for the advice.
All right, let's not panic. I'll make the money by selling one of my livers. I can get by with one.
