Smoke Glass

Bubbler Pipes for Cleaner Smoke

There are three furnaces needed for glassblowing. In the first furnace, raw materials are melted to become molten glass. While working on the molten glass, reheating is done in the second furnace. The third furnace, called the annealer is where the glass art is slowly cooled for a few hours or sometimes even days.

These glassblowing techniques are often used to create functional items for tobacco smokers. Spoon pipes and pocket pipes are very portable and thus are very common among the community of smokers. They are inexpensive and very durable if properly cared for. These glass pipes are usually the first style smokers buy.

Glass chillum pipes originated from India. They are 3-5 inches in length and can hold up to four inhalations. This compact style of glass pipe is conical in shape and needs to be fitted with a screen made of metal to prevent ash and other particles from entering the mouth and lungs when inhaling.

Bubbler pipes and stand-up water pipes are for smokers who want cleaner and healthier smoke. Because they use water, they lessen the amount of unhealthy chemicals and ash that enter the lungs. These pipes also come in different shapes and sizes and often have more aesthetic appeal than the other types of pipes. Users of these types of pipes also claim that they provide tastier smoke.

Glass hookah pipes are large sized and meant to be shared with other smokers. Just like the bubbler, hookah pipes use water. A hookah usually has 2 to 4 hoses where smoke is inhaled. Water filters the harmful chemicals and ash giving the smokers a cleaner tasting tobacco. Hookahs are usually difficult to transport and thus can be used only in one location, usually at home.

Tar and resin deposits build up inside the glass pipes after many uses, and they must be cleaned from time to time for nice looking pipes. Clean pipes also give better tasting smoke. Glass water pipes and hand pipes can both be cleaned by alcohol or nail polish remover. Soak the pipes in these solvents to take out the tar and resin deposits. However, one must make sure to rinse and dry them well.

Another method in cleaning the pipes is through a saltwater bath. With 4-5 tablespoons of coarse salt and water or alcohol, shake the pipe vigorously to ensure that the saltwater solution removes the tar and resin deposits inside the pipe. After shaking, rinse the pipe well and air dry.

Using the microwave is also another cleaning method for the pipes. Tilt the pipe upward inside the microwave so that the mouthpiece is facing downwards. Set the microwave oven to 2-3 minutes to dissolve the tar and resin deposits. The dissolved deposits will leak out from the mouthpiece which can be very messy. Make sure to handle the hot pipe carefully as this can cause severe burns.
