"Can't Raise an Eyebrow"
I bought a "restored" meer off the bay. When I smoke it, I get a bad taste, like old lady perfume or smelly soap about halfway through the bowl and it's not the tobacco. There is no cake in the bowl. I know the salt/alcohol treatment is not advised for meers. I did clean the acrylic stem with everclear soaked pipe cleaners to no avail. Any tips? I guess I could just keep smoking it, but it seems like a waste of tobacco.
