Finding the best commercial sploof.
Before the cannabis market started to explode, a sploof was simply a toilet roll stuffed with dryer sheets. Now that marijuana is almost legal, companies that specialize in odor control have entered the space to create small handheld devices that work. Whether you smoking a small hit of weed or dabbing some live resin, these sploofs will eliminate all the smoke and smell.

According to stonercentral.net, making a sploof requires just a paper toilet roll, dryer sheets stuffed inside and one wrapped over the roll with a rubber band. We tried that and it worked ok, but thought we could come up with something a little better.
- Get your toilet roll and dryer sheet.
- Toss out the toilet roll but hang onto those dryer sheets, we going to be upgrading son.
- Go to a pet store and get activated charcoal or buy some on amazon.
- Wet the charcoal under some running water.
- Grab a 500ml plastic soda bottle and punch some holes the bottom (not too big).
- Pour in the charcoal until the bottle is filled half way.
- Stuff one or two dryer sheets into the top.
This DIY sploof will last a good while, and once you start to notice that it is not working, simply replace the charcoal
Does a Sploof actually work?
Scene from Workaholics
They do work, but the effectiveness is really about your smoking habits. If you smoking a joint (or pipe), smoke coming from the jay can produce large amounts of smell and smoke. Using a dugout pipe or bong can help minimize the smell. You also need to keep your lips tightly sealed around the sploof so no unwanted smoke leaks out. Not all sploofs are equal as well. The Sploofy claims a 99.7% reduction in smell and smoke particles but your homemade sploof might not be so effective.
The best way to make sure you are producing the least amount of smell is to follow a few simple rules when you need to keep the smell on the down low:
- Use a bong or pipe to ensure there is little excess smoke.
- Snuff out your bowl after your hit.
- Use an odor neutralizer and not a smelly spray.
- Open a few windows to get a draft of fresh air.
- Smoke in a room furthest away from neighbors, the street, or front door.
- Switch to a vaporizer. (They make such little smell you don’t even need a sploof)
