WHAT IF I BURNED MY HERB WHILE LEARNING THE TECHNIQUE?
If you have experienced accidental combustion, you will want to complete this easy step to remove the smell and restore your MagicStone.
Odyssey: Thoroughly clean the chamber inside with a little acetone (nail polish remover). Isopropyl alcohol 91% will also work, but acetone takes away the smell of smoke faster and better, and evaporates instantly, leaving no smell of its own. Alcohol takes a couple of washes and leaves a hospital smell, IMHO.
Use caution: Acetone will also dull the carnauba finish and can remove the gold enamel on your engraving, so you don’t want to get that wet.
Fill the chamber halfway up with the acetone – don’t splash it on the outside of your stone – and swish it around gently to rinse out any of the burnt resin or ash particles. Let it sit for a minute, use a q-tip or soft pipe cleaner if needed to wipe. Then holding it upright, tilt to pour the liquid out through the draw line, taking care not to let it flow out over the top*.
After it dries (almost instantly), check to see if there is any smoke smell remaining. If there is, just repeat the process.
*If you do get acetone on the outside of your device, you can touch it up with a drop or two of mineral oil on a clean cloth and gently buff it.
Alchemy: The steps are the same as above, except always remove your mouthpiece first – acetone will damage the acrylic! You can soak the mouthpiece in iso alcohol while you clean the chamber, and then just rinse with hot water and allow it to dry thoroughly before vaping.
