Cleaning a HIVE Ceramics Nail using a Butane Torch

Written by brokenlungz

Here is a quick video showing how to clean a domeless HIVE Ceramic Nail using a Butane Torch.  The basic idea is to heat it the same way you would normally heat it, heating it evenly in a circular motion.  Keep heating it evenly until the entire nail is red hot.  The nail basically cleans itself, you can literally watch the nail go from black to white.  Sometimes, if your nail is really dirty, you might need to scrape it a little after you heat it up, but any crust layer should flake off with no problem.

  1. I have tried heating mine up like this with a propane torch and it doesnt work as well. The outside and the top of the nail are always perfectly clean, but the inside of it where it is black wont come off. I just got the nail too… Does it have to be butane only or should propane work too?
