Easy Blow Through Smoke Deodorizer




This instructable should cost well under 2 dollars and will last quite awhile.

Step 1: Gather Materials

You will need:
1- A chap stick tube
2- 1 cotten ball
3- Pliers and knife or a leatherman tool
4- Scented oil (optional)
6- a lighter (to heat the knife and cut the plastic from the bottom)
7- something long and skinny

Step 2: Pull Apart the Tube

You will need to remove the wax stuff and the post from the middle of the tube.

Step 3: Fluffing the Cotton Ball

First, pull the cotton ball apart, to make the air flow through a little easier after you stuff it in there

Step 4: Stuff It

Now take about half of the aforementioned fluff and stuff it in the tube with your long skinny thing

Step 5: Smelly Stuff

If you want to, pour a little bit of a scented oil or cologne into the cotton to give it a little extra kick

Step 6: Cut the Bottom

No picture for this step. Use your knife to cut a little bit of the plastic from the bottom to widen the hole.

Step 7: Conclusion

Thats it, have fun, and dont get caught smoking.

PS, this is my first instructable, so dont go to hard on me.

    Try that smoke eliminator spray that you can get at a smoke shop. You can either add it to what this person made or just spray it in the air when needed.

    Back in my high school days I made one almost exactly like this only it was PVC pipe and used dryer sheets instead of cotton / scented oil. It worked perfectly!

    Find a gas mask at an Army surplus store. Make sure it has a new filter (the Israeli-made ones are common and work well) or just buy a pack of replacement filters since that's the part you need, not the mask. Sometimes they can be found for about $5 each, but that can vary a lot.
    Blow all exhaled smoke through the filter; nothing but clean, odorless air comes out the other end. Some even have convenient screw-on caps to keep the end you blow through clean when you're not using it. I used to sell dozens of them to college students living in dorms (for a decent markup, of course) and they work for years (until graduation, possibly).

    Even easier than this is an empty toilet paper roll with a dryer sheet stuffed in it

    nice. i just rubbed deoderant on toilet paper, rolled it up and stuffed it in a tp tube but its easy to choke cause its hard to blow through.

    get a longer tube and in between two layers of cotton stuff it with activated carbon (aquarium filter carbon is fine) for an effective filter.

    Better off though just smoking outdoors.

    What was the lighter used for and why is the scented oil optional, isn't it necessary? How does this work? Is it like potpourri that just sits there or do you need to do something to use it?

    the lighter was to help cut the bottom out. it would work fine for blocking out smoke odors without the oil, the oil just makes it a little nicer


    yeah, you inhale then blow the smoke out through the tube, it filters the smoke and lessens the smell, but the scented oil helps a little

    pockatable version of the old dorm room trick. Toilet paper core, and dryer sheets. Makes your smoke downy fresh! :-) <-- also confused as to the requirements for the lighter in the equipment list.

    This would be a great place to use the marijuana scented oil I found on eBay!

    I'm just thinking out loud here but I'm thinking that may be counter productive. Most people use these to cover up the fact they are smoking cigarettes, I'm not sure covering a cig smell with a weed smell is going in the correct direction.

    I can just see the conversation now.

    Kid: No I swear I wasn't smoking cigarettes. It was weed I swear. I would never touch cigarettes they kill people.

    Parent: Well I hope for your sake you were smoking weed. I swear if I find out It was cigarettes, there will be hell to pay.

    Kid: It was weed, I swear on my life. Why won't you believe me, YOU NEVER BELIEVE ME, I hate you...

    >>Kid runs off

    First parent to second parent: You know I want to believe it was just weed, I really do, but you know how them kids today are trying cigarettes. Its not like in our day when we had to have ID's to get cigarrettes, they can get them anywhere now.

    Second parent: I know honey be we have to trust him, if he says its just weed we should believe him, he really hasnt given us a reason not to trust him. And if you take a deep breath, it does smell like either northern lights or a nice sensimillia has been smoked in here.

    First parent: you know now that you mention it it does smell like weed in here, good call. I'm Just so glad hes not messing with cigarettes I just dont know if i could have handled handle that.

    Kid hiding around corner watching and laughing: under his breath, haha it worked. They will never know now that it was cigarettes... I am so smart, thank you JohnSalad and Instructables.com

    Ok, now that I have seen it played out maybe it wasn't a bad idea at all. hehehehe
