- Cardboard toilet paper roll or plastic bottle of any size
- Pair of sharp scissors or knife/blade
- Rubber band, piece of string, or some type of tape
- Scented dryer sheets to banish unwanted aromas
A sploof is a DIY piece of kit that acts to filter the scent of cannabis from flooding a room when smoking. Sploofs are extremely easy to make and are mostly forged out of items that can be found lying around the house.
First, begin by cutting around the edges of the dryer sheet mentioned in step 3 to remove the unnecessary excess. This makes the sploof look much more tidy, and also eliminates the risk of accidentally pulling the dryer sheet out or loosening it.
Now that you have obtained all of the essential items required, it’s time to build the sploof from scratch.
In essence, a sploof is a tube with a filter on one end. Upon taking a hit from a bong or joint, the smoker exhales into the open end of the tube, filtering the smoke and preventing it from causing suspicious smells from arising within the residence. Below is a guide on how to construct your own cannabis concealing device.
Take your scented dryer sheets and begin packing them into your vessel of choice. The packing doesn’t have to be dense; around 3–4 sheets should do an adequate job of disguising the smell of ensuing cannabis fumes.
Step 1 will vary depending upon the piece of equipment you’ve elected to use. If you are using a plastic bottle, begin by cutting the top ⅓ off and discard the bottom ⅔. If you are using a cardboard toilet roll, no modification is required at this stage.
To attach this dryer sheet to the main body of the sploof, use a piece of string or an elastic band. If using a large plastic bottle, you might instead find it easier and more practical to tape this sheet on.
Are you having trouble with anti-cannabis neighbours? Or perhaps your landlord isn’t a fan of the herb. Of course, one option is to simply abide by the rules and find a suitable outdoor spot to enjoy getting stoned—a much safer option if possible eviction is in the cards. On the other hand, cannabis really is a medicine, and if braving the cold temperatures of winter doesn’t appeal to you in order to get medicated, then we have an option for you: a sploof.
A sploof is a DIY filter that masks the smell of weed when smoking indoors, keeping the session stealthy. Here is the easiest guide to making your own.
But what exactly is a sploof? Where did the term come from? And how can you make your own? Let’s find out.
The toilet paper tube may also wear out sooner than the dryer sheets because the cardboard is made to degrade in the presence of moisture (your breath). For a longer-lasting option, see the build below.
Plus, an off-round sploof just looks sloppy. Yes, the cannabis culture is a bit lax in its concern for appearances, but come on, you’ve got to have some standards, right? This is where we draw the line. No wonky sploofs for us.
As good as the sploof may be at filtering the smoke you exhale, how do you deal with the smoke from your joint or bong?
The sploof works on the same principle only with smell instead of hearing. Instead of simply releasing the smoke from your joint or bong into the air, you’re going to exhale through the sploof. Inside the sploof, the smoke passes through a filtering agent (we’ll get to that shortly) where it loses its tell-tale odor.
- Burning a heavily-scented candle
- Burning incense
- Cracking a window (the lowest option you’ve got)
- Spraying everything (and we mean everything) with Febreze
The type of filtering agent you choose can also be dictated by the type of container you use. We suggest trying them both in various builds to see which one you like best. These DIY-projects aren’t expensive by any means so you can try different forms and combinations based on your own needs and designs.
The sploof can take many forms. It can be built from things found around the home or require a trip to the hardware store. It all depends on your needs, how much you want to spend, and how long you want the sploof to last.
