It is important to clean bongs regularly.
How often you need to clean bongs depends on circumstances like how much they are used and what is smoked in them. For instance, marijuana bongs with thicker bong water should be cleaned more often than bongs for smoking tobacco or herbal bong mixes where the bong water doesn’t get dirty as quickly.
Also, bongs that are handled roughly – dropped, knocked over etc – will need more frequent cleaning than bongs that are taken care of carefully.
Bowls that were clogged up with pieces of resin can’t be unclogged just by washing them with hot water so it is advisable to use specially designed cleaners for this purpose. See below if you want to know how bongs can be cleaned using bong cleaners.

How to clean a percolator bong?
It is much easier to clean bongs with percolators than bongs without, because bongs without percolators tend to clog up after some use. This doesn’t happen as often in bongs with removable percolators. However, bongs without permanent percolators can be made more efficient by cleaning them regularly so that the smoke flowing through the bong water is free of ash and other fine particles.
If you have a bong with a removable downstem, unplug it when you are cleaning the bong – if you don’t do this, any pressure build-up inside the bong could make your downstem blow off suddenly when you reasemble it! After removing the downstem from your bong, you can easily clean bongs with percolators by rinsing the bong under running water.
Bongs with permanent percolators can be more difficult to clean but they still don’t require as much effort as bongs without percolators. If you have a bong like this and want to know how to clean bongs with permanant percolators – follow these easy steps:
1) Remove the downstem from your bong and unscrew the bowl (if it’s a separate part).
2) Clean any ash or other fine particles out of the bong water using an ash tool or something similar. 3) Clean all parts carefully so that there is no resin residue on them anymore, wipe bong down with bong cleaner if needed. 4) Rinse bong thoroughly under running water, make sure everything is dry before you reassemble your bong – otherwise bongs can explode while cleaning them!
5) Clean bongs with permanent percolators after every smoke session to keep them in good condition. If you do this, bongs will require very little effort to clean the next time.
