Don’t overthink it!
It really just comes down to soak, shake, and rinse. The steps above are great to refer back to if you have questions, but overall you can trust your gut. It’s not rocket science.
Clean all of your glass at once.
If you have multiple pieces, it’s a good idea to clean them all in one fell swoop. You can soak all of the removable items from multiple pieces at once, diminishing the time you spend cleaning. The goal is to get back to smoking, after all.
Save your best weed for the post-clean smoke.
I said it earlier, but it deserves repeating. It’s a great idea to save your premium bud for a session immediately following cleaning, as this way, you’ll have the most opportunity to taste the flower and savor the intricacies of its profile.
Clean your glass frequently.
The more frequently you clean, the less tedious the process will be each time. If you do it before a lot of residue builds up, you’ll be able to shake and rinse without having to worry about getting in there with a tool to wipe everything down.
Buy a reusable wine cork.
This may seem silly, but if you get a wine cork or any kind of stopper to pop in the glass' opening, it will make it much more convenient to conduct your shaking. Rather than covering the hole with your hand while simultaneously shaking, you can just cork it and shake freely.
Clean before you smoke.
I know I said this already as well, but it too bears repeating. The last thing you’re going to want to do after a strong sesh is spend time meticulously cleaning your glass, so I recommend getting all of the pesky cleaning out of the way before you settle down for your smoke.
