Why use a silicone bong?
These 100% Heat-Safe Food Grade silicone bongs are shatterproof, durable, and flexible which makes them easy to transport on all of your adventures (misadventures included). Whether you consider yourself an athlete or just a lover of the great outdoors, whether you are hiking, camping or even mountain biking, you can take a silicone bong with you on all of your escapades without worrying that it may shatter like your glass bong would. Just throw it in your backpack, so you can finally light up while watching the sunrise, contemplating life itself at the top of the Mammoth ski lift or wherever you find beauty. So much of what we can enjoy in life is found outside the walls we live in and silicone can withstand the journey. Silicone also gives you peace of mind, so that when you do smoke a bowl, you won’t start tripping about where your bong is, if Butterfingers got his hands on it or if it’s safely tucked away.
Benefits of using a silicone bong
There are countless benefits of using a silicone bong, especially when you’re on the road, hitting difficult terrain or need something you don’t have to worry about dropping. Here are the key benefits of silicone bongs:
- Ergonomic Grip
- Easy to Clean
- Fun & Vibrant Patterns
Cleaning a silicone bong
There are a few different ways you can clean your bong. We recommend sticking with the classic method of soap and water or trying out the freezer if you’re not in the mood to clean it out just after smoking.
- Soap and Water
- Iso and Salt
Soap and Water - Remove the downstem or glass slide, dump out used bong water, then wash out with hot water for one minute. Use one or two pumps of liquid soap and a baby bottle brush (preferably) to scrub the smoke chamber, base and joint. Do a final rinse with warm water and leave to dry on drying rack. For best results, clean right after use, since the resin is still relatively soft and your bong will be easier to clean out.
Freezer - This option is good when you don’t feel like washing it immediately after lighting up. First remove the downstem, then rinse the bong thoroughly with warm water to remove ash. Freeze for 4-6 hours, then crunch out the ice that’s accumulated along the inside of your bong.
Dishwasher - We do not recommend using a dishwasher, as the resin can stick to the sides of your dishwasher and let’s be honest, no one ordered a side of resin with their meat and potatoes.
Iso and Salt - Although this is a classic way to clean your glass bong, we do not recommend using Iso and salt for silicone bongs, as it will damage the coating and material.
