How to Clean a Proto Pipe


Proto pipes are always close to the heart object. Because it is very sleek in design and provides a vintage feel to the users. So for cleaning the proto pipe, you must follow some basic instructions. Following this process, you can easily clean the pipe, and there will be no damage to the pipe. For this process, you will need some essential elements.

How To Clean A Proto Pipe

These are very important because cleaning a metal object is difficult. You will need some isopropyl alcohol. Make sure to use it carefully and try to avoid direct contact with liquid. Then you will also need some salts. You will need a beaker and a small price for the cleaning cloth. Now you must take the proto pipe and the steel poker and start cleaning them.

Processes on How to Clean a Proto Pipe:

Process One:

Step One: Prepare the Warm, Soapy Water and Pipe Cleaner Mixture.

  1. Fill a bucket with hot water.
  2. Add dish soap to the washing liquid until it is foamy or sudsy
  3. Pour about an inch of this solution into your Proto Pipe’s chamber end (not too much)
  4. To clean your fluoride toothbrush, use the brush on one side of the mouthpiece to scrub the inside of each section in a circular motion. Then rinse the brush thoroughly by filling the chamber end with clean running water from your sink faucet and dumping out all remaining fluoride-rich liquids onto plant soil nearby to avoid polluting groundwater supplies.

Step Two: Rinse the Pipe.

Fill up the chamber with clean, cool water from your sink faucet, then dump this out onto plant soil nearby so as not to pollute groundwater supplies.

Step Three: Reassemble Proto Pipe

Screw everything back together following this order: Mouthpiece, Chamber end cap, Chamber lid ring with pipe stem attached (or just screwing it into place if not using)

Step Four: Pack Away Cleaned Proto Pipe

Store it under your bed or desk, so whenever you need to take a hit during class, it is easily accessible without messing.

Process Two

You must take some alcohol and salt into the beaker and stir them. Once the salt is fully dissolved, you should place the pipe and the steel poker in the water. These pipes are made of brass, and resins appear on the tube. So isopropyl alcohol and salt will remove the waxes properly, and they will also keep the outer layer shining.

Remember to close the lid and shake the beaker several times. You will see the resins automatically coming off the pipe and the color of the solution gradually changing. You will also find the poker free of resins.

You must remove the pipe from the solution and start wiping the inside with a soft cloth. This will help you clean the pipe properly. After this, you need to let the pipe dry for some time and gradually see it regain its glossy look. Thus, you can easily clean a proto pipe, including the steel poker.


  • Fill a sink or bucket with at least an inch of water and dish soap. You want to ensure the pipe is submerged in soapy water for this part, which will help break down any grime.
  • Wet your hands, then rub them together until they’re really soapy before touching the pipe. This helps prevent oils from transferring onto the metal when you touch it (and I can’t believe how much cleaner my fingers are after!).
  • Give every surface a good scrubbing under running tap water (especially those hard-to-reach bits) until all the dirt has come off – if there’s anything stubborn left behind, use some steel wool to get into crevices further than your finger can reach.
  • Rinse the pipe in warm running tap water until all the soap is gone, then dry it with a clean towel.
  • Let your newly washed and cleaned pipe air dry for at least 30 minutes before using it again (remember to keep that metal mouthpiece pointed down so any moisture won’t enter the bowl).
