How To Clean Your Vaporizer Bubbler

Last Updated on

Glass vaporizer bubblers can take your vaporizing experience to the next level and their fanbase is rapidly growing within our VapeFuse Community.

When using an aqua bubbler, the vapor is filtered through water, making it smoother, cooler and easier on your throat. They really give you a cleaner and more enjoyable vaping experience, however, on the other hand, they do get dirty with regular use, and need a good clean every now and then.

So how do you clean a vaporizer bubbler?

For the finest vaporizing experience, the bubbler is designed as an enclosed system with tiny holes and curved edges. So when it comes to cleaning it, you have to apply a few tricks to make sure, you get rid of all stubborn spots even in the hard to reach places.

Cleaning a bubbler requires:

  • warm water
  • rubbing alcohol
  • salt (table or epsom)
  • a skewer or toothpick
  • and a ziploc plastic bag.

First, you need to get the water out of your bubbler. You can easily do that by blowing into the bubbler from the top (same way as you use it, but instead of inhaling you need to exhale into your bubbler).

Next, is to flash out your bubbler with warm water. Make sure you don’t use boiling hot water, as that may crack the glass. Warm water should be good enough to help loosen up the resin and to rinse out any floating components.

After a good rinse, pack some salt inside your bubbler through the top and bottom stems. You can use regular table salt or any type of home use salt. Epsom salt works just fine as well. I used a bamboo skewer in the video to push the salt inside the bubbler. 

Next, pour some rubbing alcohol into your bubbler. 

You can use Isopropyl Alcohol that is sold at grocery stores as well as hardware stores. Any Isopropyl Alcohol should work fine, as long as it is 60% pure or more.

Once you put some rubbing alcohol into the bubbler, you need to pour some more into the ziploc bag and place your bubbler into the bag. Seal it and now, you are ready to shake the bag with your bubbler inside, until it is clean everywhere.

In the video below, it is fast forwarded, so you don’t have to watch it forever. Depending how dirty your bubbler is, it may take anywhere from 1 to 5 or so minutes of shaking.

Once it is nice and clean and you are done with the shaking, remove it from the bag and drain all the liquid out. Rinse it out under the tap a few times to ensure all the salty rubbing alcohol is completely gone from your bubbler.

Use filtered water if possible.

And that is pretty much it, you should have a brand new looking bubbler. Fill it up with fresh filtered water and enjoy your vaporizing experience!

As simple as that, can be done in less than 10 minutes!


Squeaky clean, just like the first time you had it.
