Yeah, I'd just be careful with boiling. I've heard boiling can negatively affect some fuming and certain colors of class (correct me if I'm wrong).
Also, it's not very practical for anything besides a spoon.
I think the most important thing is to start taking care of class from Day One. Otherwise just do the EPSOM SALT/90% ISOPROPYL ALCOHOL cycle for resin that is old and caked on. Get 90% ALC. whenever possible. 70% really does not do the trick compared to 90% and IT IS A NOTICEABLE DIFFERENCE!
The one thing I'm interested in, do any of you neo-hippies have any methods of freshening a tube? Are there natural oils can be added to the cleaning process like lavender to take that resin/alc. stench away?
