You get Washee because you think it's going to solve a cleaning problem you have. What you later realize, it's how much it improves your smoking experience. I used to think I needed more to get the same high. Ended up being that once I had clean pipes, I only needed a few hits to get in the right state of mind. I keep the small Washee on my desk (which is where I do most of my smoking). It's so easy to use that I run my pieces in there pretty often. Once I got used to Washee, I never wanted to go back. I don't think I can. Definitely a must have.

My pieces were almost unsmokeable when Washee arrived. I knew I was getting the cleaning unit soon so I didn't bother cleaning them. I have never been good at keeping them clean anyways, but I feel I got a good chance to test it to its limit. Since my stems and bowls were pretty clogged up, I ran them together in the hot cycle with isopropyl for 30 minutes. They all came out like new. The gunk was completely gone. At first, I was skeptical because I couldn't smell anything but once it was done I was like holy crap. I reused the same isopropyl for 3 weeks and then switched to water. The tank stayed remarkably clean. All my friends started bringing their pipes over for cleaning.

I bought 2 new spoons and a bubbler to inaugurate my Washee. I wasn't sure how often I needed to clean them to just use the water cycle. At first, I was running them almost every other day. Then I started pushing it and now I only clean my pieces in Washee twice per month for 15 minutes. The medium unit is spacey enough to fit those 3 original pieces plus a few travel ones in a single cycle. I love this thing.
