Many people get into pipe smoking because they like the aroma that the pipe tobacco provides and they like the taste. It is a great way to relax. Some people can spend days picking out just the right pipe, the right tobacco, and the right wind resistant lighter for lighting their pipe. However, when some people first start out, they become frustrated that they can’t keep their pipe lit and that they can’t get a good draw on their pipe. They wonder if they are doing something wrong and some of them even stop smoking. The problem is often the way that they pack the pipe, and with a little knowledge, they can remedy this problem.
It is very important that you keep your pipe clean at all times. If it is the first time you are smoking the pipe, you won’t have to worry about cleaning it, but you need to keep these steps in mind for all of the subsequent uses. The first thing that you want to do is to remove all of the debris and ash from the bowl of the pipe. You can dump it into an ashtray. Next, you are going to want to use a pipe cleaner through the stem of the pipe and toward the bowl to remove and clean buildup in the pipe.
One of the most important things when it comes to pipes is keeping it clean. You want to make sure that you clean your pipe before each use because there will be debris and buildup in the stem and in the bowl. You can empty out the debris and ash from the bowl and then use a pipe cleaner to run through the stem of the bowl. This will help to remove any debris that might be causing you to have a hard draw on the pipe.
If you find that you are having trouble keeping it lit, you can empty the pipe and start the process over. When you are first starting out with your pipe, you may have to do this several times before you become adept at it. Practice will make perfect in this case.
You will want to make sure that you use good quality tobacco for your pipe, as this will often burn better. Always remember to keep your pipe clean and your lighter nearby, and you should have no trouble.
