Keeping It Clean September 02 2015, 0 Comments

Keeping your glass nice and clean is not always an easy task. As many of us know, the more frequently we use our favorite piece, the faster resin will build up in it. Cleaning after every use can be a little excessive for most people, but the longer you let it go with out cleaning, the harder it becomes to clean it. Water pipes for flower will also build up resin faster than oil rigs, and are harder to clean out that thicker flower smoke resin. My personal go to cleaner is Grunge Off. Grunge Off is formulated exclusively for glass, no scrubbing or excessive shaking is required for Grunge Off to clean your piece. I personally like to keep two bottles worth of Grunge Off in a plastic tupperware container big enough to hold multiple down stems, hand pipes, bowls, and other messy glass accessories. I usually let my dirty glass soak overnight, mainly because I don't need to use it while I'm sleeping. However, only an hour is usually needed for most pieces. After your pieces are done soaking, take them out of the container of Grunge Off and rinse them off in hot water. The hot water rinse will remove any remaining residue clinging to hard to reach areas in your piece. A single container of Grunge Off is reusable for up to at least three months of rigorous cleaning. If you like effortless cleaning, Grunge Off is for you! What are some of your favorite cleaning methods?


Proud Hi Si Glass Retailer August 18 2015, 1 Comment

We at Captain Ed's have been very fond of Hi Si for many years now. Hand made in San Leandro, California.  They offer a unique selection of percolated Water Pipes that will help reduce the negative effects associated with inhaling hot smoke. It all starts at the bowl, the Hi Si Drain Slide is going to offer maximum air flow and reduce drag through out the entire piece. Next, the smoke passes through the Tear Drop Honey Comb Diffuser and is chopped up into hundreds of small bubbles rapidly being cooled by the water reservoir. Then the smoke passes through one of the many different Peculator models offered by Hi Si and receives additional cooling. Finally the smoke passes through the Industrial Ice Pinces, so thick they can hold crushed ice for maximum cooling! Hi Si calls out to all our inner Mad Scientists with their clever Periodic Table of Elements logo and Measurement Lines printed along the sides of many of their models. Fans of function and style will not be disappointed when pulling out a Hi Si at their next gathering.  Order yours today!
