What is a Sploof?

A sploof is a device used to filter and mask the odor of smoke during exhalation. Typically, it comprises a cylindrical tube filled with materials like activated carbon or dryer sheets, which absorb and neutralize the scent. Users exhale smoke through the sploof, allowing the filtering materials to reduce the smell before it disperses into the surrounding area.


How to Make a Sploof

To make a sploof, follow these simple steps:


1. Gather materials:

You’ll need a plastic bottle, a pair of scissors, a rubber band, and filtering materials such as activated carbon or dryer sheets.


2. Prepare the plastic bottle:

Cut off the bottom of the plastic bottle using scissors. Remove any labels or stickers from the bottle. 

3. Insert filtering materials:

Stuff the cut end of the bottle with filtering materials like activated carbon or dryer sheets. Make sure to pack them tightly to maximize effectiveness.

4. Cover the other end:

Stretch a dryer sheet over the open end of the bottle and secure it in place with a rubber band. This will serve as the mouthpiece of your sploof.

5. Use your sploof:

Exhale smoke through the open end of the sploof covered with the dryer sheet. The filtering materials will help reduce the smell of smoke before it dissipates into the air.

By following these steps, you can create a homemade sploof to help filter and disguise the smell of smoke during exhalation.
