Steps on Cleaning Your Dab Rig with Alcohol and Without Alcohol. Puff 21 Smoke Shop.


What Is a Dab Rig?

Dab rigs are cannabis vaporizers. They are also known as vapor rigs, oil rigs, concentrate pipes, wax rigs, hash oil rigs, shatter rigs, or simply rigs. Wax concentrates are cannabis in their purest form. Dabbing cannabis wax concentrates is like chugging 100-proof liquor. Keeping your dab rig clean is essential to function properly and improve your dabbing experience. Dab rigs collect excess oil and wax, which can clog your dab glassware and interfere with the flavor of your next dab. That is why we as experts from Puff 21 have decided to give a comprehensive guide on cleaning a dab rig.

What Is Required to Clean A Dab Rig?

The following items are required to clean dab rigs:

  • Isopropyl Alcohol (Rubbing Alcohol).
  • One resealable bag. 
  • Coarse Sea Salt or Rock Salt 

How to Clean a Dab Rig in Steps.

  • Step 1: Torch nail. Torching a rig that hasn’t been used much is a quick way to clean it. Torching should be sufficient if there is little oil build-up. Use an alcohol-soaked tip to fine-tune the nail.
  • Step 2: Remove the banger nail from the rig and place it in a resealable bag. Put the banger nail or cup in a resealable bag. Allow the Isopropyl Alcohol to soak. If your nail is particularly filthy, add coarse sea salt and shake it up.
  • Step 3: Drain the Water from the Dab Rig. This should be done after each dabs session to prevent oil build-up and preserve terpene flavor.
  • Step 4: Fill the rig with alcohol and salt. If your rig is extremely dirty, use coarse sea salt to deep clean it. If your wax rig is not as bad, pour alcohol into the base.
  • Step 5: Shake the Rig. Cover the mouthpiece and any other openings with carb caps if you have them. If you don’t have carb caps, shake the rig with your hands over the openings. Clean the grooves with a q-tip where oil has accumulated.
  • Step 6: Rinse the Dab Nail and the Rig. To remove the alcohol, rinse for about 3 minutes with warm water.

Cleaning a Dab Rig Without Alcohol or Dab Rig Solution.

  • Step 1: Bring your water to a full boil and allow the steam to build. 
  • Step 2: Place your dab rig over the steam and allow the heat from the steam to break up the oil and gunk. 
  • Step 3: Let your Dab Rig rest for one minute to allow the heat to remain and loosen the gunk.
  • Step 4: Fill the dab rig with hot water.
  • Step 5: Gently shake the water. Cover the mouthpiece, or any other openings and shake the dab rig.
  • Step 6: Drain the Water. Make sure to empty the water in a single fluid motion. Pouring water out slowly when cleaning a dab rig allows the oil to stick to the sides as you pour.
