How do you do it after each smoke? I heard wiping the inside of the bowl with a paper towel is a good way to do it, helps the cake to not build up excessively.

I do exactly that. After a bowl I twist a paper towel and clean the bowl. I then remove the stem once cool and run a pipe cleaner through the stem and shank. Easy Peasey.

I smoke the older boys so I always put the pipe cleaners that I get from Shaintiques down the stem. I wipe the bowls out with a pipe cleaner after doing the stem and then I de-coke the bowls once every other month. It seems to have worked for me for years but always be on the look out for dimples in the bowl or dark spots out side as thats an indication of over reaming and we are not talking about the wife here!
