Smile Should I be cleaning my corn cob pipe?

Hi to all, I'm wondering if I should be cleaning - as in deep cleaning - my corn cob pipe, or are they self maintaining.
I read somewhere about cleaning them with alcohol. Is this good or bad.

Thanks a million, Prozac

You got a camera at my house? mine needed cleaning bad, whatever tobacco i put in was all tasting the same, gave the stem (foreverstem) a good wash in hot water, reamed out the bowl very carefully, didnt do the Salt/Alcohol bowl clean as like @Prozac i dont know if thats good for cobs, i have it soaking in the sun right now

I gently bent one each into my nostrils, then put the remaining one in my mouf. --droy1958

Well you know I don't have a clue Fusion LOL!
I'm sure someone has mastered the cob pipe, maybe they will help the both of us.

Donít soak the pipe itself with anything! You can use hot water to clean the stem inside and out, you can use alcohol on a pipe cleaner to swab out the shank where the filter goes, the shank is glued in with Elmerís and will come loose if itís wet. Wipe out the bowl with a paper towel after you smoke it while itís still warm, you donít really want any cake to build up in a cob, eventually it will anyway, just scrape it out when it does. If it starts to Ghost or develops a funky taste set out in the sun for a day and the sun will freshen it up.

If I see a stick that made a noob nic sick,I put it on my list as a must try. (UBC03)

Thereís a few guys Iím aware of that use unseated baby wipes to wipe out the bowl, I havenít tried it myself but they swear by em.

Maybe someone with kiddos or grandkids can let us know what they are moistened with, it might just be distilled water.

I bought this one in 2013-14? It’s been my go to work pipe since I put the forever stem on it a couple of years ago, since then it’s probably seen 3-5 bowls a day 5 days a week plus lawnmower duty and car wrenching time.
I’m not sure what you would have to do to actually kill one!
