How to Maintain Your Glass Bongs and Bubblers

Bongs and bubblers are great tools for consuming cannabis but cleaning them is a chore. While some may just buy a new one instead of dealing with cleaning an old one, that is not always an option. But, with a few pre-emptive measures and the right cleaning tools, crystal-clear glass can be the regular state for your bongs and bubblers. The following guide will help you learn about common glass complaints that can easily be avoided.  

Bong & Bubbler Maintenance: How to Prevent Water Stains, Mold, and More  
Water Stains

When unfiltered spring or tap water is used, the mineral content of this unfiltered water will lead to water stains. These stains are tricky to remove, but they are easily avoidable. Simply use filtered water to fill your bong or bubbler and voila, no more water stains! If you have some extra filtered water sitting around, you can also use it when cleaning your bongs and bubblers.  


Mold is a health hazard and very difficult to remove. As a result, it is best to avoid mold in your bongs and bubblers altogether. Be sure to change the water in your bong or bubbler daily and clean them every week to prevent the growth of mold.  


Removing scratches from glass is a complicated process and the best thing to do is to prevent any scratches before they happen. Bong and bubbler pads are highly recommended and make sure your tools are safely secured in a padded bong bag or hard case if they are being transported elsewhere. Perhaps the best tip here is to just be careful!  


This is probably the most dangerous issue when dealing with bongs and bubblers. To state the obvious, you can’t use a bong or bubbler if it is broken! Exercise caution when handling these glass tools and when not in use, store them somewhere safe.  

Unfortunately, accidents will happen, and general wear and tear may cause your bongs and bubblers to reach their demise. Just remember which cannabis dispensary or weed shop you bought your favourite bong from if yours meets an untimely end!
