How well do the rubies stay clean for you nspatient? I use some Sic ones from 710coils, but am curious if the rubies will be easier to keep clean than the Quartz I've used in the past? Any insights?
No issues with my cleaning regimen. After I'm done with a dab, I clean the dish with both ends of a q-tip and then use that dirty q tip to push a cotton ball around the bowl to rotate/wipe the pearls and grab whatever else is left on the dish.
I've been keeping a bucket half filled with a brewery wash solution. Everything goes in there as needed, and the solution gets a lot of work done before it needs to be tossed and replaced. Glass, Tbucket(assembled), dish, pearls, whatever. I'm pretty OCD about keeping my glass and equipment clean because I find it to be way better tasting/less harsh.
Baking soda paste will also get most stuff clean after a reasonably short exposure, as will Krud Kutter.
The only thing that seems to require special attention is the underside of the carb cap, which needs to see alcohol to get clean.
