Simply cut a piece of aluminum foil and shape your strainer into the bowl. Then take a toothpick or paperclip and poke a few holes through the foil. Make sure they aren’t too big.
No, screens are for pot whistles, crack whistles use Chore Boy scouring pads (worked at a supermarket in the hood for a while). Seriously, do what you want, but you can easily get used to smoking any (tobacco) pipe without a screen.
While it is not essential to have a screen for a pipe, it is definitely a great addition to your smoking experience. Many users go by without one every day, and some pipes even have small holes in the bottom of the bowl to do the job of a pipe screen. However, that doesn’t always end well.
Just grab a thin cloth, similar to what you would use to clean your glasses or computer screen. Get it nice and wet and then wring it out. Place it over the mouthpiece of your pipe and smoke through the cloth. This filters the smoke as it reaches your mouth, much like cheesecloth.

Screens that are overheated for a long time can become damaged and release chemicals that are toxic to humans during the process. To prevent this, we recommend replacing the pipe screens about every 15 days, especially if you smoke regularly and daily.
Gazes are a small but essential accessory for any pipe or bong smoker to get the most out of their piece. Preventing ash and other debris from clogging your pipe is key to extending its life and reducing the need for cleaning.
Pipe screens are durable so they can be cleaned and reused or replaced as needed to support maximum air and smoke flow.
Technically you don’t need a tube screen; Many bowl sessions have gone well without one. Some bowls have holes small enough not to let ash through, although these often become clogged with tar after a few uses.
Daisy strainers are the best glass tube strainers on the market. These glass pipe screens have a colored flower shape and will cool your smoke much more than a regular stainless steel or brass pipe. You can get a 100 count for less than $10, which should be more than you’ll ever need.
The spoon gauze made of glass steel are ideal for glass bong bowls. Each pack contains 5 steel spoons.
