Silicone bongs are virtually unbreakable, making them perfect for anyone who wants to travel with a bong or dab rig, and doesn't want to sacrifice functionality for durability. They are also the perfect pipe to whip out at home when that clumsy friend comes over. You notice the difference with a flexible silicone pipe when drop it!
Silicone pipes are easy to clean with just warm water and soap, or a quick cycle through the dishwasher. You can't say glass is that easy to maintain! Keeping your silicone pipe smelling fresh just takes a little baking soda and water mixed up and applied to the inside of the piece for 15 minutes before rinsing. With a basic care schedule, silicone bongs, dab rigs, and hand pipes can last just as long as glass.
Silicone doesn't just work well for bongs and dab rigs, it makes an excellent material for spoon pipes, sherlocks, and other hand pipes. Combine silicone with a glass or metal screen, and you have a hand pipe you don't have to worry about breaking.
