    What Is Your Standard For Deep Cleaning A Tobacco Pipe?

    The method I use is a hot al. Retort system. Pipe cleaners, flushing or bracer is better than nothing but the hot al. Sanitizes used wood, removes gosting when changing blends, opens pores of bowl. The only problem is that make sure your fire insurance is paid up.
