How to Clean a Glass Filter Tip After multiple uses, it is normal for your glass filter tip to begin getting dirty. A dirty filter tip will not work as effectively and will reduce the flavor of whatever you are smoking. Instead of replacing it, cleaning it is a faster and better solution to continue enjoying your tip longer. Here we bring three ways to effectively clean your glass filter tip and leave it like new!
1. Hot Water – Little to Mild Dirty Glass Tips Place your Filter Tip in a small glass cup or a microwave-safe container Place the glass cup or microwave-safe container in the microwave Microwave for approximately 1-2 minutes or until the water boils. Take filter from the water, and with a Qtip remove all excesses of resin until the filter is clear Blow on both sides to remove excess water trapped inside the filter.
2. Hot Water + Isopropyl Alcohol – Mild to High Dirty Glass Tips Apply first the hot water method to get rid of the majority of the resin Take from the boiling water and soak in 99% isopropyl alcohol for 30min After 30min with a Qtip remove all excesses of resin until the filter is clear Rinse in hot water Blow on both sides to remove excess water trapped inside the filter.
3. Ziplock Bag – Place your glass filter tip on a ziplock bag Mix 3 spoons of salt and ½ cup rubbing alcohol into the ziplock bag Shake until all resin is dislodged Take from the bag and rinse in hot water With a Qtip remove all excesses of resin until the filter is clear Blow on both sides to remove excess water trapped inside the filter If any of these methods didn’t work separately try repeating or alternating between methods. If still, your filter tip remains too dirty it might be too late to salvage.
