cleaning and maintenance

or how to keep your hookah working as long as possible :-)

The marvin vol. 1 hookah is made from high quality food grade stainless steel and silicone, as well as sturdy hand-blown glass. It therefore requires a certain amount of regular care and maintenance to ensure a longer working lifespan.

1. Hookah body

Flushing the hookah body should be done after every use not only for reasons of hygiene, but also to prevent permanent residue deposits inside the body of the hookah. Rinse the body thoroughly under running water, using a cleaning brush designed to clean hookahs if need be.

2. Base

After each use, rinse the base and replace the water with fresh water. Glass bases over time begin to develop an undesirable coating of residue on the inner walls, which is makes it necessary to check and thoroughly clean the base with a brush at least once a week.

3. Hose 

The hose is made from high quality food grade silicone. However, this does not mean that it does not need to be flushed with fresh water regularly. Residue buildup inside the hose can degrade the experience of enjoying your favorite flavored smoke of choice.

4. Bowl

After each use remove the tobacco and thoroughly rinse with clean water. All of the hookah components are safe to clean with water. After rinsing, we recommend that every part is thoroughly dried.
