    Wink How do you clean your P-hole?

    Ok I thought the title of the thread would get your attention.

    For you guys with P-lip Petes, how do you clean the p-lip hole? I can't seem to fit a pipe cleaner through it and down the stem. I've been jamming a cleaner in from the stem side as far as it would go... but not through the hole. What to do?

    I have some small pipe cleaners that are really too small for any other pipe I have, so I use those. I have no idea where I got them (or why), but they fit the p-lip just fine. I typically go in from the mouthpiece side and just thread it through.

    4noggin has Falcon pipe cleaners that are thinner than standard pipe cleaners, you may want to give those a try.

    Or possibly worse... The baccy is cheap enough, but the pipes can get super pricey!

    I manage to get a cleaner through my non-system p-lip pipes by twisting the cleaner. I can get from p-lip to bowl with a few twists. FWIW I use BJ Longs and clip any sharp ends.

    Re: How do you clean your P-hole?

    Thanks for all of the replies. This really isn't a laughing matter. A dirty P-hole can lead to all sorts of problems. Seriously, who wants to put a dirty P-hole in their mouth?

    Thanks for the link and the falcon pipe cleaner suggestions. I will give those a try. For the rest of you that haven't replied, are you cleaning it a different way or are you just walking around with a dirty P-hole?

    As for you Josh, I'm not sure what about a thread with this title would make you desire a system Pete but hey to each their own. In all seriousness, the system Pete has been a fantastic smoker thus far and I just want to make sure I'm giving my P-hole the proper attention it deserves.

    Yep, I bit. The Falcon cleaner suggestion is good. They are thinner. If you can manage it with the P-Lip, disassemble the pipe when cold and pull the cleaner right through from mouth end to tenon (once only - wasteful, but better) as it draws any gunge further away from your mouth. But I rarely follow my own advice and mostly clean with the pipe assembled and only bother with a fuller clean occasionally.

    I've had the same problem but at my local B&M I found some Comoy's Rayon Tapered pipe cleaners and they work great small end first and then after my pipe's cooled i pull the stem and flip it around and insert from the the tenon side and out the p-lip.

    Re: How do you clean your P-hole?

    This title made me laugh pretty hard. No one wants a dirty P hole

    I use BJ long tapered pipe cleaners. I have 3 P lips and the tapered pipe cleaners work flawlessly for me. Best part is once you get them started they get thicker (obviously) so do a great job cleaning as well
    It's been nice, while it lasted.
