Many people seem to have different views about this subject, and i was wondering if you all had any suggestions. Some smokers state that one should run a cleaner down the pipe right after smoking, and when it cools down take it apart and clean it after every smoke. While some smokers state that a pipe cleaner should be run down the stem regularly to remove blockages, but should not be taken apart and cleaned until after more than a couple smokes. Can cleaning be done either way in order to maintian optimum performance provided that a pipe is allowed the time it needs to rest after each smoke? Or does one way work better than the other?
