How to clean my pipe?
In order to avoid problems such as clogging the stem, it is important to clean your pipe thoroughly on a regular basis. First of all, let you pipe rest for a while so that it cools down completely.
How to clean your pipe?
- Remove the stem by turning it on itself, as if it was screwed in the stummel.
- Remove the filter that is inside the pipe. You might want to replace it if it is a meerschaum, activated charcoal or balsa filter. If you have a metal filter, simply run it under water and use a cloth or paper towel to dry it.
- Run a pipe cleaner through the stem. As long as the pipe cleaner comes out dirty, keep running it through (use as many as necessary).
- Put the stem back on, still using a twisting motion.
There exist cleaning kits, that allow for a more thorough clean. A deep clean should be done1 to 2 times a month.
