How to unclog my bowl?

I was hoping to use it tonight, but it seems that no air can pass by? ._. How should I clean it?

It was pretty much given to me and I dont think they knew how/ever tried to clean it...

Clean it. For a quick fix, run it under some hot water and maybe pull a pipe cleaner through. It'll help, trust me.

Easiest, and quickest, way is to run it under hot water for a while. My water gets quite hot, so I use tongs to hold it. After about 5 minutes most of the resin comes out.

I scrape all I can out then let it sit in alcohol for a day and swab it with q-tips, makes it look like new.( cant use pipe cleaners cuz my metal pipe is oddly shaped) But yea for glass pipes hot water is the bomb.

I have two glass pieces that are so clogged when u hold the carb there is absolutely no airflow.

I stopped smoking resin as i keep a steady supply of weed nowadays. So what would be the best way?

Ive heard of boiling water, but you think running it under hot water is good enough to work? I dont have any pipe cleaners, and dont think i have alcohol atm either.

water is shit if you want to get a piece looking brand new. resin is not very water soluble, and while it may help wash some of that stuff off, it wont get it 100% clean.

i've boiled pipes for hours and hours before, and they still came out splotchy....mostly clean, but with stubborn resin that just wont come out.

the best way, if you dont care about collecting resin, is to simply soak it overnight in a cheap gladware container or something full of rubbing alcohol. use 90+ percent isopropyl alcohol, the stronger the better.

by morning you can take it out and it should be almost impeccably clean. if you are REALLY serious you can give it a secondary soak with fresh alcohol.

so long as you use a clean mixture of alcohol and water, once cleaned you can simply run the pipe under warm water for a while until there is no more alcohol smell. this will not take long.

you should still let the pipe dry completely before using.
