In order for the hookah to serve you for many years and not cause unnecessary trouble, after each use it must be disassembled, washed and put into a cover. Disassembling the hookah will not take you much time, as well as memorizing the sequence of actions.
Wait for the bowl to cool. It is better not to start disassembling the hookah while it is still hot, because there is a high probability of getting burned. In addition, nothing terrible will happen if you leave it for 20-40 minutes, and do not wash it right away.
Place the hookah on a surface that is comfortable for you to disassemble. Just in case, put a newspaper under it so as not to stain anything. When moving the hookah, hold it by the flask, otherwise it may loosen under its own weight and break.
Carefully remove the foil from the hookah bowl. Make sure that no tobacco sticks to it, otherwise you risk staining the surface on which the hookah is located. Remove the used tobacco from the bowl. Even if a long enough amount of time has passed since the hookah was used, it is better to do this with special tongs to exclude the possibility of burns.
After the bowl is empty, slowly remove it, holding the hookah by the flask or by its shaft (long vertical part). Please note that it will be difficult to shoot, so do not make too sharp movements.
Remove the saucer and carefully remove the mouthpiece from the shaft. If you are using additional dock shelters, be sure to remove them as well. Remove the disposable attachment from the mouthpiece, if any.
Grasp the flask tightly with one hand and slowly pull out the shaft with the other. Be extremely careful. Sudden movements can cause the entire contents of the flask, be it water, wine or milk, to end up on the table or floor.
Unscrew the small pipe from the shaft that falls into the water when you smoke a hookah. Pour the contents out of the flask. Now all the components of the hookah can be washed, dried and put into a special case.
