Hello everyone. I am a new(ish) pipe smoker who just got my first estate pipe. To clean it I used pipe cleaners dipped in rubbing alcohol and then alternated with a clean one. Repeated many times. To clean the bowl I put rubbing alcohol on a cloth and wiped it out a few times alternating with a dry and wet clean cloth. Where the alcohol got on the outside of the bowl it dried the wood out so I put some wood polish on the outside and it seems ok. I really like this pipe and will be totally bummed if what I did messed it up, what do you think?
