You don't have to boil it unless you just want to. If you wish to boil it place it in a small saucepan with just enough water to cover the piece. Put it on low heat and bring it to a boil slowly. Boil it until you see the nasty stuff floating in the water. Remove your piece to some paper towels and let it air dry.

If it is a glass spoon you can pour a little bit of rubbing alcohol and some salt into the bowl. Cover all of the holes and shake it around. The alcohol will loosen the gunk and the salt will "scrub" it away. When you've finished shaking it run plenty of warm water through it to get all of the alcohol and salt out.

make sure you put the pipe in the water before it starts to heat up.Introducing cold glass into hot water is just asking for the glass to shatter on you.Other than that its a really easy way to clean your glass. And if you like resin like i do, its an easy way to collect it to smoke. mmmmm imight do that tomorrow just for the resin, even though i have some herb.

resin in the bottom of bongs is equivalent to tar collected at the end of cigarettes, only worse...

smoking that tarry shit is bad on your health...don't waste time smoking that shit.

By follow the following steps you can clean your glass pipe.
1. Fill your pipe with a teaspoon or two of salt, depending on pipe size. You can use regular table salt, sea salt (preferred) or rock salt.
2. Plug the head of your bowel with your finger or thumb, and pour rubbing alcohol, isopropyl alcohol, into the mouthpiece of your pipe.
3. Cover the mouthpiece with another finger or thumb and shake the pipe up and down vigorously but carefully, for a few minutes.
4. Dump out the waste and rinse thoroughly with tap water.

Repeat if needed until pipe is sparkling clean.

Best way I have found. Don't ever use alcohol on acrylic bongs. I have had 2 crack on me while cleaning them with alcohol.

From what I've read online it has to do with eh rapid temp changes cause by the fast evaporation rate of the alcohol. I have it happen to me twice with 2 different acrylic 2-footers.

Acrylic is chemically incompatible with most solvents, e.g. alcohols, acetone, toluene, benzene, etc. These liquids break down the chemical structure of acrylic, leading to pitting, cracking etc.

If you want to boil a pipe you can do it, however the pipe can be thin thus causing it to crack and if you put it in cold temperature to cool it off it can crack. It is not recommended that you should boil a glass pipe because it can crack. Try using some rubbing alcohol it will help with some cleaning.

Boiling glass should not crack it, unless of course there are air bubbles IN the glass. Just use common sense, and don't pull your bong from steaming water and immediately plunge it in a snowbank !

Hi.., Cleaning a glass pipe is important because it provides purer smoke which is better for your health than smoking from a dirty pipe. So, its better to clean your glass pipe before you start smoking. Cleaning pipe didn't need much time. All you need is boiling water, boiling glass and some other.
