I think he meant in the ss bowl not the stem. I do that but am careful and do it upside down. It is hard to get the ss clean sometimes. I actually broke a piece of brillo off last week to do it as it was stained with what I do not know. I ended up with brillo pieces in my hands and on the bed so then had to check my legs for it since I can't feel it ugh it was a mess that I will never do again.
Hmmm, I wouldn't use brillo to clean there, if surface gets scratched it will become harder to clean.
You just got to be careful not to put anything inside your stem that can fall out easily.
I always check before putting the stem inside the Solo.
You can use the backside of a pen or anything like that to compact the load so nothing falls out.
In case you use oily hash like Afghan or Nepal be sure to make a sandwich with herbs on top so the oily stuff doesn't come in contact with the bowl directly.
