How often should I clean my pipe to prevent severe clogs?
To prevent severe clogging of your pipe, we recommend simple cleaning after each use. If you can smell a strong tar smell after use, then you may need more in-depth cleaning, such as soaking the pipe with alcohol, which can help your pipe more fully dissolve the accumulated tar. In addition, if you only use it a few times a week or a month, deep cleaning once a month will suffice to ensure your pipe lasts longer – soak it in dilute vinegar or high-strength alcohol. The acidic nature of vinegar can dissolve hard buildup. Rinse clean with clean water. Below I will list more detailed steps for unclogging smoking pipe.

What are some methods to prevent pipe clogging?
There are always many factors that can harm the pipe during its use. Therefore, if you want to keep your beloved pipe with you for a long time, you still need to make a lot of effort. You can prevent your pipe from getting clogged according to the following tips.
1. Clean the pipe with a pipe cleaner every time you use it. This removes e-liquid residue and prevents buildup.
2. Choose a high-quality wooden pipe, such as a briar pipe. Pipes made of this material are not prone to gaps and because the briar surface is very delicate, it can reduce the accumulation of smoke oil and the clogging of the pipe.
3. Use good quality tobacco. Low-quality tobacco tends to produce a lot of tar, which can cause pipe clogging. Therefore we recommend choosing high-quality tobacco that is moderately cured.
4. Fill the tobacco in an appropriate amount and smoke slowly, otherwise the tobacco will not be completely burned each time and will cause tar accumulation.
