I have a wooden pipe. I have never smoked out of it. I cleaned it in a glass full of rubbing alcohol. I let it sit for a while. When I came back to to take it out the alcohol was kind of brown. This was like a month ago (I`ve only been smoking J`s lately) Now, when I stick a q-tip down the inside a little bit of brown will be on the cotton part of the q-tip. Also, if I rub the pipe with like a qtip or kleenex there will be a little brown. My question is: Would the alcohol make the finish come off and then when I smoke will I be inhaling finish? Thanks. I would normally just to hell with it, because it was like $20. But, I am 3 hours away from any kind of head shop. Thanks!
