Hi there you guys, I have read several times and I have done it several times that the best way to clean the ring of your pipe is rubbing it with a Q-tips and saliva....Please tell me that there is another way. I have done it but I have some issues. First it is embarrassing when people is around me so I have to hide my face when doing it. Second I am kind of delicate (girly delicate ) with my mouth, so I have to confess that sometimes I gag. And third it is disgusting. Please, there have to be another way. Any ideas?
