The best tip that I have for keeping the pipe stem shiny and very nice is that after every pipe smoking I clean it with a lip stick you know the lip stik that you put on your lip when they are dry!!! I use the one with apple because is giving to the pipe a nice flavour. I put the (grease) on the steam and I let it on for 5 min. after I clean it with a dry cloth and it is giving a nice shiny aspect :mrgreen:
Edit: I have edited some words to help with clarification. L

I've used Chapstick on pipe stems before. Before I found Paragon and Halcyon that was my go-to instrument for keeping my stems clean and fresh. It works very well. Like youngpipe said, keep it on a few minutes and wipe it clean. Though, I never used a flavored Chapstick -- I always used neutral.

"Death to the users." :D
Couldn't help it.
I'm still on the olive oil kick for now. And the only chapstick around the house is cherry flavored. Not gonna use that on my pipes! Was planning on giving the neutral one a go though.
Quick shine for those of us that lack proper waxes and buffers! :crying:

The flavour is not changing the taste of thsteam because you don t let it for a long time. :mrgreen:

Always keepp a chapstick in my pocket for this exact purpose. When I smoke away from home, it is mighty handy for getting something on the stem asap.
