Default juices in Hookah base

Will putting juice or listerine in the base of my KM ruin the stem or make it rust faster ?

I'll just put this here: http://www.hookahpro.com/forum/showthread.php?t=39310

In theory as long as you wash it incredibly well after use and dont get it up into the purge port, it should not decrease things that badly, I wouldnt think. However, will it add to the experience, that is the question.

Some people need to experience it for themselves, attempt to remove cognitive bias and find out for themselves.

I agree.
go ahead and try it... if it's a liquid you can consume, you should be safely able to put it in the base. i would recommend against food coloring, as this will always stain the glass (and it DOES NOT change the color of the smoke!!!)

Yeah I used to put all sorts of things in the base, like cranberry juice, coconut milk, rice milk, orange juice, and iced tea. Now, the only thing I use is water, iced water, or iced black coffee. The black coffee does give you a coffee aroma, so despite the insistence of the ever wise “what should you put in your base megathread”, I still put things other than water in the base.

Basically, you gotta know the rules, and why the rules are in place before you try to go out and bend/break them.

Just gotta make sure you do a thorough cleaning right after to prevent anything from building up and producing mold. Other wise you can. The only thing I put in my base other than just water is a bit of lemon juice in water. Can add a pleasant sourness.

I'm not even going to start saying only water or anything like that, but what about putting listerine in the base of your hookah even remotely sounds like a good idea? It just sounds to me like an easy way to poison yourself.

I have put freezing cold Vodka (about 20%/80%water) and the smoke was so thick, and tasted really fresh. I know alot of people say it's a big nono, but I did this when I was starting out. I recently remembered that I did it once and liked it so I tried it again, and same results. Great thick freezing cold, fresh smoke!

Also, once in a while I'll throw in some mint and some lemons, and you will feel a little freshness too.

I think as long as you dilute it with water, you should be fine.

A friend of mine used to put pure soda in his vase for nearly all of his sessions and his vase became very dirty. He gave it to me for a year and I tried cleaning it, but there was so much residue that could not be cleaned off. I wouldn't recommend it though, but feel free to try it out and see how you like it. If you decide on trying it, do not use milk regardless of how it supposedly enhances the flavor because then you'd have to clean it really good at the end. Milk tends to rot and you don't want that going on in your hose/purge ports.
