Is it only for bongs?

Pipes, bongs, glass, metal…any stickiness from any hard surface

Brushes for every job

Clean virtually anything!

Mile High Cleaner cleans cannabis, hemp or any plant based residue from any hard surface. Even this brush will come clean in seconds. 

Remove resin from glass pipes & rigs and dabbers & vaporizers all the way to trimmers, grinders, and even your blackest ashtray, Mile High has you covered. 

Don’t forget around the house, the sink and kitchen, magazine table or wherever you may get sticky resin; tile, glass, metal, plastic, acrylic, paint, granite, quartz, laminate, finished wood, polycarbonate, a lovely countertop or any surface. MHC even removed resin spots from the dog Spot. Sounds like quite a party!

If it is a smooth, finished surface that does not absorb liquid and wipes clean, it is safe for our cleaner. It is easier to say we don’t work on porous, raw or absorbing surfaces like construction materials, cinder block, paper, or raw wood. Do not use on heating coils or electrical elements. (No Manufacturer wants you to clean the heating coil.)

In the grow for trimmers tables and surfaces. Any surface that gets sticky can probably be cleaned with Mile High Cleaner. It works on concentrates and extraction equipment along with all the associated plastic and sensitive parts.

Water Pipe coated with resin

Do I have to shake my bong like an idiot?

Only once to coat it. After warming the bong, squirt in MHC and shake or twist around once to coat the resin. After that shaking will not help. The less movement the less possibility of breaking it. The formula changes resin so it is no longer sticky. Use our specially-designed tools and brushes to scrub. Then wash just like doing the dishes. See video on Bong cleaning. For neglected pieces let sit overnight.

Do I soak it overnight?

If it is a really bad Bong or water pipe that would work well. Just make sure you coat it completely. Squirt in Dish Detergent and scrub clean. Pipes soak in hot water or boil if very bad. Then scrub with brushes. For regular cleanings a simple rinse in hot water is usually sufficient

Mile High Cleaner’s unique natural formula is meant to be used with tools, just like doing the dishes. You use a small squirt of detergent and tools like scrubbers and brushes to clean your pots and pans. This is no different. MHC changes resin so it is no longer sticky. Wipe, scrub, brush or wash away just like any mess…

How does it work?

The science behind it.

Change the sticky nature of resin on a molecular level

Mile High Cleaner is based on theories of  Encapsulation and Ionic Polar Attraction.

Encapsulation Theory states that any 2 compounds that can mix, one will be dominant over the other and will dictate how the combination reacts with the environment.

This image shows the RED resin is immediately encapsulated by the various golden ingredients of the Mile HIGH formula. The resin can no longer even reach the glass. It is not able to stick to anything and is ready to be wiped or washed away just like any mess!

We are working with nature in harmony, using physics and science as opposed to simply throwing toxic chemicals at resin.

Maintaining your pieces on a regular basis.

Why clean your glass you inhale from?

  For health issues click here

Why Clean your glass? First of all, it is YOUR PIPE. You inhale from it inviting that great smoke into your lungs. Give it a good sniff. That STENCH is the DOMINANT flavor you are inhaling when you smoke. That is why the first hit tastes so much better.

At the very least you would not drink from yesterdays drinking glass left out over night, would you?

Can it harm me in any way?

NO! But if you are sensitive to plant or nut allergies please skin test first. This is a natural product with no known allergens. There is no peanut oil in the formula.

Mile High Cleaner’s unique natural formula is organic, plant based and so natural you can eat it. Don’t, it is a odorless, flavorless goo that works on resin like you would not believe. It can get chilly so store in a warm place.

DISH DETERGENT!?!?

Dish detergents are MUCH Safer than ISO which has not changed in 100 years. Some detergents are safe for Wildlife after toxic oil spills. BTW, ISO is made from that toxic oil. Read the Label on Dawn compared to ISO. Scrubbing in the sink with dish detergent is the highest standard of cleaning achievable in a home. 

Why should I give up ISO, it works!

ISO is made from fossil fuels. We are releasing it in liquid form When the government is limiting MICRO amounts in paints an beauty products. Just the VAPORS cause eye, nose, throat and lung irritation. That’s really bad for Grandma with COPD or little Timmy with asthma and tender young lungs. It is a major contributor to Poor indoor air quality which is 14 times more likely to kill than outdoor air in big cities. ISO turns into Ground Level Ozone which kills around 1 million people per year, mostly the old, the sick and the very young. ISO is a known or suspected Carcinogen, Mutagen and Teratogen. Is that enough or should I go on with more info here

How often should I clean

Daily use of a water pipe = Daily cleaning

If you use a wet piece once a day you should clean it once a day. Would you drink out of yesterday’s unwashed glass?

For everyone else, the healthiest way to smoke out of a bong is to clean it after each use and let it dry completely before storing, just like you would any dish. A weekend toker should clean out the piece before Friday Night hits

Watch out for unwanted debris

I recently toked 2 hits and left in for a glass of water. When I came back, I noticed a fly doing the backstroke in the water. If he had not still been flopping I would have assumed that was a chunk of resin and used it for a day.

This happens to all of us even if you didn’t know. It’s better to just play it safe and clean your piece as often as possible.

Cleaning glass doesn’t have to suck anymore

We know – cleaning your pipe normally sucks. Over the counter solvents are costly, smell bad, and ruin anything else they touch. They are flammable, hazardous VOCs and solvents. Isopropyl alcohol is cheaper but has all the same hazards.

The old way of cleaning glass was nasty and annoying. But Mile High Cleaner resolves the problems of cleaning glass. Most bongs are clean and ready to toke in less than 2 minutes. A one hitter could take as little as 15 seconds to clean.

 

How does MHC work? (Polar Attraction and Encapsulation)

The Basic Encapsulation Theory states that any 2 compounds that can mix, one will be dominant over the other and will change how the combination reacts with the environment. MHC changes the resin so that it is no longer sticky and is easily wiped or wash away.

Polar attraction; MHC is positively charged while Resin is negatively charged. They want to combine, just agitate with heat. The resin is immediately encapsulated changing it’s very nature so that is no longer sticky. Now it is ready to be wiped, rinsed or washed away depending on your needs.

MHC has no known reactants and is inert. This mean it will not react with anything including bleach, acids, bases, ammonia, solvents, and known chemicals. Don’t try that with ISO, it is VERY reactant

MHC also kills germs, bacteria and microbes by being a naturally inhospitable environment. This is working with nature, not waging war against her with toxic solvents.

 

Clean vs dirty water

As most cannabis consumers know, smoking out of a dirty water pipe can really put a damper on your experience. The piece is harsh, foul-tasting, smelly, and might even put you at greater risk of developing a lung issues. What’s the best way to do it and how often should you clean your piece?

Not only does fresh water make your smoking experience tastier and more pleasant all around, but keeping fresh water helps stop the growth of bacteria and other microorganisms. If you let it go long enough without being cleaned, a slimy bio-film can develop, This is basically the excrement (shit) produced by microorganisms. If your water is Cloudy it is way past the point of being a problem, you are inhaling it.

For dry pieces, the germs don’t grow as much because there is no water which is where germs grow best. BUT, the longer you go without cleaning the harder it will be to clean, but if you clean weekly you can keep a fresh and functioning pipe.
