How to clean your Titanium pipe

How to clean your Titanium pipe

How to clean a Titanium or other metal pipe.

We get asked this question alllll of the time, and we know why, it can feel like a daunting task and no one would want to damage their heirloom-quality Titanium pipe from Dangle Supply that they will surely pass down to their grand children and them to theirs.

Anyhow, the good news is that Titanium is an incredibly resilient material and there are lots of ways to clean it. You might need to clean your titanium pipe if you are finding airflow to be restricted or you can see buildup of residue in your pipe. This is just a thing that happens, so don't worry, cleaning is reallll easy.

We find with regular use that we need to clean our TiCobbs or WizardStix every 3-4 months or so. This process works for either of those products and even more.

Here is what you will need

  • A container - we like to reuse a mason jar or something that can seal, otherwise your solvent will just evaporate away. A plastic zip top bag can work too, but there are lots of better options than single use plastics.
  • Solvent - We used acetone because we had it on hand, but you can use all sorts of things really. Isopropyl alcohol, some people like citrus degreaser. Let us know what you like in the comments
  • Some time

With those things, all you've got to do is place your pipe in your container, top it off with solvent and let it chill.

  • I use everclear because it leaves no harmful residue

  • Isopropyl alcohol and some table salt melts off that residue.

  • Everclear 151 proof or higher is what we’ve been using. We keep it in a reused dropper (tincture / CBD) bottle and forcibly issue the grain alcohol through the bit and out the bowl, repeatedly. If hot water is available, that’s used to loosen further. A little twist of cotton from a supplements bottle can wipe nicely. Next, either a second 151-proof hosing or a 151-proof soak. The soak? Not you, silly, the pipe. And we give our Ti Cob this treatment after every bowl. No tar buildup permitted. No, we aren’t high, we are particular.
