Cleaning your bong and pipe is crucial, even if you don't want to be obsessive about it.

Lung infections can occur as a result of smoking a dirty bong, especially if the bong is used frequently. When exposed to this water, a biofilm can quickly form that is full of bacteria, yeast, and other microscopic animals. In addition, if the bong tips over and any of the water seeps onto a garment, you'll have a lot of trouble getting rid of the odor afterwards. It's not a good idea.
Casual marijuana users — those who go weeks or months without using their bongs — should clean their equipment after each use by pouring boiling water into it and then draining it. To avoid mildew, store it somewhere warm and dry when you know you won't be using it for a while. This will keep mildew at bay.
