A French Press for latte coffee will work. I've done this before too, it can be tricky though.

Large garlic press = Potato ricer

Try adding a tablespoon of cooking oil to your bong water to keep it clean. The oil soluble resin stays off the glass.

Yeah they sell these acrylic garlic presses that work in a piston fashion, you screw it down and it squeezes out the front you could put a filter in the front. Another idea is getting a big horse syringe, they sell them at my local hydro shop for $5 for measuring out liquid ferts...I just put a coffee filter paper in the front, just use a little square and fold it over and kind of crumple it so it doesnt block the hole, then put your greens in there and squeeze, it works very well.

a thin t shirt or cheesecloth. 

Put in a funnel... pour the liquid through.... then squeeze the fuck outta it till it all comes out.


I used this method for my last tincture. and have used it for other projects as well

A metal screen coffee filter might work best for the final filtering, after cheesecloth, otherwise its too hard to use with a lot of solids.

I still think a potato ricer would be the best thing, just put some cheese cloth inside it for added filtration. That way you can press out the excess liquid with ease and not having to handle the actual product when squeezing out a ball of cheesecloth.
