Default pipe cleaning

i know this has been covered here somewhere before, but anyone got any tips or product suggestions to get pipes clean, especially that nasty black carbon build-up, ive tried the antifreeze in a crockpot method, but it doesnt get rid of the carbon spots and carbon-off is not available here.

$10 electric pot from walmart

$5 anti-freeze...

put them together...dumps all your direct pipe there and cook it several hours, then turn it off and rinse it...done.

That is my OLD way to do it...

Apparently the above is the new way...but I never tried it so I am not sure how good it does...the pot/anti-freeze I know it works and I like the result.

If still available where you are: Methylene Chloride, a.k.a. paint stripper.

4-6 hours and it'll take it all off w/o hurting the pipe.

If you can get access to SWIPE. Soak the pipe in the cleaning agent. You should be able to remove most of the dirt. As for the remaining, use a brush to clean it off.

Default Removal

Only 1 product will do. Warning wear protection, use outdoors and please avoid contact with your skin

CARBON OFF!!!! The aerosol can works best
