Hookah Cleaning brushes come in a range of sizes and have different functions. It takes a different size and shape to clean the stem (aka hookah shaft) than to clean the glass base due to the difference in diameter and shape.
We recommend at the very least a quick 1-2-3 scrub on the stem under running water between sessions, to minimize any residual flavors that might affect the next session. Since the residue of hookah smoke is generally water soluble, it doesn't require a lot of strength or intensive cleaners for quick maintenance.
Hookah shaft or stem brushes are long with a bristled tip that can slide inside of the stem and brush off the shisha juices. A couple of scrubs and a quick rinse can do the trick, but if you want to do a deep clean, a simple mild soap solution or using lemon juice can make that inner stem shine.
