You wouldn’t eat out of the same milk and cereal bowl day after day without cleaning it, right? Think about this in terms of other bowls in your life: yeah, you should be cleaning them! Although not the same as 4 day old crusty milk on a cereal bowl, there’s not much that’s appealing about a glass pipe with flecks of dry herb stuck in it either. It’ll taste burnt and dilute the flavor of your smoke made from fresh dry herb (sounds like an oxymoron, but that’s how it is). This debowler makes it so easy to clean out your bowls--don’t even try using your finger or a towel, it just doesn't work. This debowler is made from recycled plastics right here in the U.S., so you can also feel good about the product you’re buying. However, you want to make sure your pipe has sufficiently cooled before using this debowler, as otherwise the plastic could melt!
