Cleaning the pipes is a way of allowing oneself to think clearly while not allowing sexual desires effect how one thinks. The idea is that cleaning the pipes of this sexual desire will allow the individual to think more clearly. This is why it is a common practice to clean the pipes before going on an important date.
