How to Clean Your Acrylic Bong

Acrylic bongs are always to fall back for those looking for a lightweight and more durable option than a glass bong. But it’s not all a bed of roses with acrylic – the material does not lend itself quite as well to traditional cleaning methods. 

While you can get hold of cleaning products designed for bongs, be careful of any with strong chemicals in them. These might be fine for glass but are likely to disintegrate the acrylic. You’re going to have to go a bit gentler with your plastic friend, otherwise, you risk causing harmful damage rendering the piece useless. 

However, all is not lost! It’s not as hard as you might think to keep your trusty friend as fresh as the day it arrives with you – and trust us, you’re going to want to keep this bad boy fresh. A breeding ground for germs and nasties, the swamp-like funk you get from an unclean bong is not something you want to be putting anywhere near your mouth – nevermind going into your lungs! 

Here’s a handy step-by-step guide to cleaning your acrylic bong for tip-top freshness. 

When dealing with acrylic, stick with natural ingredients. Items you will need to clean include:

  • Sea Salt
  • Rubbing alcohol (or vinegar)
  • Freshly squeezed lemon
  • Hot water
  1. Make sure your bong is empty of all loose debris – a quick rinse through with hot water should be enough for this. 
  2. You will be left with the resin stuck on the bong, and here is where the salt comes in. Pour a generous amount of salt into the bottom of your bong and cover with alcohol (or vinegar). You want to leave enough space to give your bong a good shake and have the mixture splash around inside. 
  3. Cover up all holes on the bong and give it a good shake like you’re playing the maracas. This will take a little while since you’re dislodging the stuck-on resin. It’s like a mini HIIT session for your arms, but it’s all worth it – we promise. (Side note: if you use vinegar rather than alcohol, this will take even longer still. The acidic property of vinegar is much milder, so be prepared to put in a little more elbow grease).
  4. Toss out the alcohol/salt mix and rinse really well with HOT water with added fresh lemon juice (for the natural antibacterial properties). 
  5. Leave to air dry and voila! You’re all done. 

The more often you do this, the less effort the shaking step will take, so it’s really worth getting into a regular habit of this. Unless your goal is popeye arms in which case, use this technique to get some extra bulk.

The Final Hit - Rose Gold Strain

Final Hit

Great for portability, large enough for a group session while still being lightweight, with added durability? There are not many downsides to consider about acrylic bongs. While they’re cheaper-made (and to buy) than their glass cousins, that doesn’t mean they don’t have a very well-deserved place among the more luxury or expensive bongs.

Every style has its time and its place, and whether you’re a newbie or a veteran smoker, you’ll no doubt enjoy an acrylic bong in your stoner kit. Plus, they are great for large rounds of people or parties.

With a smoking experience to rival the glass bong, we think you’ll enjoy the added benefits the acrylic version brings. Puff responsibly – either alone, or with friends – and make sure you’re abiding by the regulations of whatever state you’re in.
