Mother Nature provides the active ingredients of peppermint oil and enzymes that quickly and easily removes stubborn caked-on resins from tobacco pipes, smoking accessories, cutters, scissors, and snips. Zero Resin uses no salt or abrasive materials that could scratch or dull the finish of expensive delicate glass. Zero Resin is non-flammable and does not contain alcohol or petroleum solvents.
Soak cutters, scissors or snips for 30 minutes and rinse with water or brush with Zero Resin then rinse with water. Reapply oil or grease.
Small Pipes: Make sure the pipe is dry. Remove screen and submerge the pipe in Zero Resin; allow no air bubbles in the pipe. Soak for 30-60 minutes. Then rinse the pipe thoroughly with warm/hot water. Return Zero Resin to its container.
Large Pipes: Cleansing is done by a gentle swish and soak method. This method reduces the risk of accidental pipe breakage. Start by emptying the pipe and allowing it to dry. Then pour Zero Resin into the pipe’s chamber or body. Plug all openings with watertight corks or plugs. Gently turn the pipe to different positions allowing Zero Resin to swish back and forth, coating the entire inner surface area. Once done, return the pipe to a standing position. Let the pipe soak for 5 minutes then gently swish again. Repeat this gentle swish and 5-minute soak procedure until all the resin has been dislodged. Once cleansed, pour Zero Resin into a temporary container, then gently rinse the pipe and its parts thoroughly with warm/hot water. Finally, pour the Zero Resin back into its original container for future use.
Make sure the pipe is dry. Remove screen and submerge the pipe entirely in Zero Resin; allow no air bubbles in the pipe. Soak for 30-60 minutes. Brush clean if the pipe is too big to submerge. Then rinse the pipe thoroughly with warm/hot water. Return Zero Resin to its container.
