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, poly carbonate, a lovely countertop. Sounds like quite a party!
Just Shake or Twist to Distribute formula once in a warm piece but it is not necessary to waste energy shaking when using our specially designed tools that won’t scratch your glass! They are made to clean most bongs. If your bong is especially hard to clean because of percolators or design, it could be growing germs constantly.
Mile High Cleaner’s unique natural formula similar to doing the dishes. Warm in hot water (soak), Drain, Squirt in some cleaner, Scrub and for the final touch, squirt on some detergent and scrub again.
No, but if you are sensitive to Plant based 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 an odorless, flavorless goo that works on resin like you would not believe. It is a cleaner, not a dessert topping. MHC is Edible but not meant to be eaten.
Mile High cleaner is made by combining natural plants, fruits, and nut oils. Using the acids, enzymes, and natural properties we made the most effective resin cleaner over. We won’t give away our secrets here, but feel free to contact us for more information or a full MSDS sheet!
MHC is an odorless, colorless, tasteless, inert, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-microbial and edible oil that works in harmony with nature to remove all kinds of sticky resin from any finished surface… the ultimate resin remover, preventer, and neutralizer.
MHC Cleans any resin from any surface. Pipes, rigs, vapes, trimmers, extractors…
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!
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.
Think about it.
Scrubbing in the sink with dish detergent is the highest standard of cleaning achievable in a home.

The formula is a little cold. Store in a warm place above 68 degrees. You could also run the bottle under hot water or microwave bottle for 10 second bursts until warm.
That would work for VERY dirty, neglected bongs. Rinse out, coat with formula. Let sit in a WARM place like a heat vent or sunny window. Then scrub as normal, with our tools, just like doing the dishes. You use water, heat, 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…
The Long-Term Risks of ISO!
- Loss of coordination
- Loss of concentration
- Nervous System Depressant
- Sleep disorders
- Known or suspected carcinogen
- Known or suspected mutagen
- Known or suspected teratogen
- A major contributor to poor indoor air quality
- A major contributor to ground level ozone. Isopropyl rubbing Alcohol solvents and VOC’s have issues!
- Should be used with gloves, eyewear, and adequate ventilation $ (Industrial vent) Cost $
- Isopropyl Alcohol is made from fossil fuels, the source of most of our environmental issues. Cost $$ and rising
- ISO should not be released into the environment, even through the sewers, as it kills the bacteria that break things down. Cost $
- Evaporation should be minimized as the Vapor contributes to 1 million deaths per year. Cost $$$
- Methyl Carbinol (another name for ISO) kills germs, bacteria, and enzymes severely damaging Sceptic tanks. Cost $$$
- ISO pits metal and damages plastic, your drains are metal and plastic. $
- As a ‘Hazardous Substance’ Waste ISO should be contained and shipped to an environmental waste treatment plant. Cost $$$
- Vapor over 2000ppm is immediately hazardous to life and health
Mile High cleaner is made by combining natural and organic oils from plants, fruits and nuts. We won’t give away our secrets here, but feel free to contact us for more information or a full MSDS sheet!

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.
Our products have zero toxicity, zero hazards. Use 1/50 (one-fiftieth) the amount you would of ISO. Saving 9 large 32oz bottles to one 2oz bottle.
Our brushes and tools are meant to be reused over and over again. The Canna Mag scrubber has a 55-year expected lifetime.
There are NO disposable items in our offerings which would increase trash and waste. We are seeking an alternative to the plastic bottle to reduce plastic waste even further.
We are trying to do the right thing, not the profitable thing.
We ship everything in ecofriendly, minimal packaging that serves as its own storage container.
We use recycled packing material including the wax paper from our labeling department and local businesses.
We Re-use, Reduce and Recycle in every way we can.
Our product is natural, organic, and safe for you and the planet.
At 50 cleaning per bottle it is cheaper than ISO and a great value. And saves 9 plastic bottles of ISO
We will even give you the tools to clean daily if you buy our Deluxe kit. I will even make recommendations for cleaning your piece if you send me a picture.
If I cannot help you get your piece clean cheaper, easier, or faster than ever before I will refund your money.
Why should I give up ISO?
Many people assume ISO is safe because it is used in the medical industry as Sterilization before your yearly flu shot. This is so a germ or virus does not get a free ride into your body. It is an important job with a calculated risk. Doctors do a lot of risky things like getting an X-ray, Barium Contrast, Chemotherapy or even camaras where they should never go, are a necessary calculated risk.
That is 2 drops of ISO per use which mostly turns to vapor. In contrast, some people use 2 ounces to clean. 2 ounces is 1000 drops which means 12,000 drops per year. Most importantly this is dumped in liquid form which has a 20-day half-life turning to vapor.
We are subjected to a lot of toxins, consequently the more we have to tolerate. As a result, the less we can tolerate.
What does not kill you does NOT make you stronger. It makes you weaker with less ability to fight off other toxins and diseases. As our world becomes more toxic from chemicals of our own making it is important to reduce, mitigate or better yet eradicate all the chemical toxins we can. Isopropyl rubbing Alcohol, solvents and VOC’s all have issues
Alcohol based sanitizing products like instant hand-sanitizer can lead to passive alcoholization.
To most of us 2 ounces we use to clean is not much ISO. However, the Government limits the MICRO amounts used in cosmetic, hair spray and beauty products. In California the gas pumps try to capture the VAPOR from your gas tank because gasoline has the same issues. You KNOW you should not dump gasoline so dumping ISO is OK?
There are sources everywhere, but NO INDUSTRY dumps it in liquid form. It is illegal with stiff fines for that. Companies try to always reduce evaporation or loss.
The effects are cumulative and there are a lot of Cannabis Consumers using ISO. Estimates are 5.6% of the population. That is 435 million worldwide! If, for example, the 100 million in North America clean once a month that is 2.4 billion ounces dumped every year. That’s 55,000 gallons per day! LIQUID, which is consequently much worse! Add in the Grows and extractor using ISO that is easily 100,000 gallons a day.
Volatile organic compounds are organic chemicals that have a high vapor pressure at ordinary room temperature. Their high vapor pressure results from a low boiling point.
Chest pain, coughing, throat irritation, and airway inflammation are a few signs to look for. In addition, it also can reduce lung function and harm lung tissue. Moreover, Ozone can worsen bronchitis, emphysema, and asthma which leads to increased medical care and Asthma “attacks”. Learn more about health effects at the EPA website.
ISO is suspected to be a mutagen
(Changes your DNA). Now, that may have worked out for Spiderman. But in the real world we get free radicals and tumors. It is not limited to just humans either. Plants and animals are affected by ISO as well.
One final consideration is to think about the effects of ISO on the environment.
DO NOT wash into sewer because it is harmful to aquatic life. Most noteworthy, ISO poses a significant risk of oxygen depletion in aquatic systems. As a result, ISO causes Acute Fish Toxicity
Solvents are harmful to the environment. ISO kills bacteria, algae and microbes in the sewer and septic tanks. Just like good bacteria in your gut, everything from microbes to algae are involved in the process of cleaning the water. ISO kills them. Meanwhile, ISO goes into the water treatment plant which is certainly not equipped to handle it.
The dumping of solvents is illegal.
The Federal Government does not acknowledge Cannabis or these concerns; and consequently, it gets worse, and we continue using Isopropyl rubbing Alcohol, solvents, and VOCs to clean.
When these compounds evaporate into the air; they disrupt the chemical structure of the surrounding air. In turn, this creates OZONE and causes further harm to life on Earth.
The Institute of Physics estimates 1 million people died as a result of air pollution effects in 2013.
Other studies state 1 million died directly from Ozone pollution in 2017. Either way it causes serious harm to you, your family and the environment.
The EPA website on Ozone lists dozens of potential effects from Ozone pollution
Ground level or “bad” ozone is created by chemical reactions. VOCs interact with oxides of nitrogen (NOx) in air. This happens in sunlight. Petroleum based vapors, and chemical solvents are some of the major sources.
Isopropyl Alcohol is a VOC and a Petroleum based solvent!
Breathing ozone can trigger a variety of health problems. Ground level ozone can similarly have harmful effects on vegetation and ecosystems.
Ozone in the air we breathe can harm our health. People most at risk include children, older adults, and people who are active outdoors, especially outdoor workers. In addition, people with certain genetic characteristics. Also, people with reduced intake of certain nutrients, such as vitamins C and E. In addition, those who have lung issues or diseases such as asthma, COPD or even a common cold will, as a result, suffer more and could die. This is the weakest 30% of the population!
Ozone affects sensitive vegetation and ecosystems. This includes forests, parks, wildlife refuges and wilderness areas. It also harms sensitive vegetation during the growing season. Learn more about how ozone harms ecosystems.
How bad is it?
100 years ago, no one died from Ozone. Now, every year one million people die from Ozone.
What will it be like in 100 years from now?
We can ‘tolerate’ a small amount of a lot of chemicals. However, the more our bodies must deal with these chemicals the less we will be able to deal with anything new. Every new cleaner just seems like a more toxic mix of solvents and chemical. The harsher and more hazardous the chemical the less we can tolerate.
In conclusion, Solvents are not the way to go.
