* Make sure to remove all bong water, downstems and bowls before cleaning
Step 1 - Fill the base so the percs are submerged in cleaning solution. Then use plugs and/or caps to cover the top of the base and downstem.
Step 2 - Shake the base so the cleaning solution runs through the percolators and visibly dirty areas.
Shake up-and-down and then side-to-side, depending on the area you are trying to clean. If using a plug you may want to keep your finger on the plug for support. For dirtier bongs, feel free to add more solution or warm water. If there's a specific troublesome spot focus on that area and make sure the solution runs across it multiple times.
Step 3 - Place the base down and let the solution marinate inside the piece for 5 minutes.
Step 4 - Repeat step-2 for one minute.
Step 5 - Ring thoroughly with warm water
Lightly shake the bong as the warm water is entering and leaving the base.
