To clean and Polish a Tobacco Pipe, you have to run a pipe cleaner through the stem of the pipe to remove any ash and Dottle left from the last time you smoked. After that, light the pipe so that the flame is directly over the tobacco and does not char the edge of the bowl. If you do end up charring the edge of the pipe, you must moisten a pipe cleaner with saliva and run it over the darkened area to remove the soot. Then, let the pipe to cool once it has been smoked and tap the pipe against your hand to loosen any ash and Dottle. Next, remove the stem from the pipe for periodical cleaning.
You must Lay the two pieces of pipe on a paper towel and dip a pipe cleaner in alcohol. You should run the pipe cleaner through both pieces separately until they come out completely clean. Forth, Polish the stem or bowl band with the appropriate metal polish applied to a soft cloth. When the pipe is reassembled, you can polish the wood exterior of the pipe with a soft cloth to remove any visible smudges or fingerprints.
