There are plenty of people that will tell you to spray yourself with cologne, chew a piece of gum, and go on about your business. That might be fine if you have a job and a family and friends who don’t care at all if you smoke weed. And… if you never plan on walking in the same vicinity as an officer of the law or a concerned baptist church-goer !
Better to be safe than sorry in most situations, and I have an actual remedy for you. But first…

A Little Science Will Do You Well
There are certain elements and chemical compounds in the world that actually do capture smells rather than covering them. Other processes even change or destroy smells. Here’s a short science lesson to help you make sense of these things a little better.
- Activated Charcoal – (desiccant/humectant) – A desiccant is a substance that attracts and holds moisture. Most bad smells and unwanted particlulates are captured and held by water molecules (humidity) in the air. So, passing the air in a room over an activated charcoal filter will in turn “scrub” the air and filter most of the smells out of it.
- Ozone – (molecular process) – Ozone (when talking about it’s use in getting rid of smells) is generally produced by an Ozone Generator. The generator uses ultraviolet light in wavelengths around 185 nm to cause lone Oxygen molecules to combine with O2 molecules in the air when they pass by the UV light. These O3 molecules are unstable, and thus let go of their extra Oxygen molecule that then attaches itself to bacteria and other stuff in the air that cause bad smells. This method can be unsafe. Also, it’s usually very ineffective in garden situations, because the air has to be exposed to this UV light for quite some time. Normally, these garden Ozone Generators are placed in outgoing air ducts powered by fans that move the air too fast for the Ozone Generators to be effective. Although, done right, it can be very effective at eliminating some odors.
- Silica Gel – (desiccant/humectant) – A different type of desiccant than activated charcoal, silica gel does virtually the same job. It sucks the moisture (and all the bad smells it carries with it) out of the air and holds on to it almost indefinitely. Great stuff to keep in your stinky shoes, and also by your stinky stash!!
- Ionization – (molecular process) – Operating much like an Ozone Generator, an Air Ionizer uses electrical charge (kind of like static electricity) to make molecules, carrying bad smells and unwanted particles, stick to plates within the machine. Much less harmful than Ozone Generators, and some argue much more effective, this would be a good choice to help rid the air of bad smells in a room or confined space.
- Febreze – (chemical process) – cyclodextrin – Works by attaching itself to certain hydrocarbons (some of those being associated with smells) and forming a molecular shape which prevents the smell from escaping. So essentially it finds the smell, sticks to it, and doesn’t let it go. Most Febreze-like odor eliminators do work well, and perform basically the same process. They end the process by also injecting perfumes in the air. Essentially capturing the existing smells, then replacing them with good ones.
- Filters – (HEPA/mechanical removal) – Many strong smells originate from particles floating around in the air that have detached from their host and fly into your nose. Some, if not most, of those particles are large enough to be trapped by a HEPA filter. A HEPA filter is a special kind of filter that is able to filter particulates smaller than half a micrometer from the air. This equates to 99.7% of everything floating around besides the clean air we breathe. Highly efficient and cost effective, these filters will really help you keep smells down.
Using some or all of these things in your effort to keep the weed smell down will help you tremendously. In fact, later I’m going to show you how to build some pretty kick ass devices that will help you do just that. But first we have to go over the common methods you will use alongside these tools.
- Smoke outdoors rather than inside – This may seem like common sense, but smell and smoke dissipate faster when they have a bigger space to expand in. The more they spread out, the harder they are to detect.
- Blow your smoke up above your head – Again, common sense, but some people may not think about it. Blowing the smoke up will lessen the chances of some of the particles running straight into someone’s face!
- Use glass instead of paper – Glass can be wiped clean and stored easily. Papers and blunt wraps have to be thrown away, and they are stinky. Plus, they can leave residual odors and smells on your hands from holding the paper while smoking. I love to smoke a joint as much as the rest of you, but when in a situation where smell is a factor, if I don’t want other people smelling it, I use a bowl. Plain and simple.
- Wash your hands and face after smoking – Even if you use these (upcoming) kick ass tools to help you hide the smell of your smoke, you yourself will still smell like weed if you don’t wash those oils and particles off your skin. Be sure to use a soap that cuts through oil and grease. then use sanitizer on your hands, but not your face. (the alcohol can be pretty harsh on your facial tissue)
- Chew gum or eat food after smoking – No, it’s not going to get rid of the smell, but it will damn sure help to mask it. This is an important one and it’s really easy, so just do it. I promise it will help a lot with your smoker’s breath.
- Wash your own clothes – The way my mother (a strict southern baptist woman) caught me for the first time, was when she was washing my sweatshirt like 3 days after I had smoked weed! The fabric of your clothes will hold smells for a seriously long time. If you don’t want the person washing your clothes to know you smoke weed, then wash them yourself.
Now, let’s put all these methods together and get to that cool part of the book that I mentioned before. The part where I tell you how to make kick ass stuff!
Sayonara Smokey Skunk Smell!
Alright, now I’m going to walk you through building an awesome mobile smoke and smell removal device, and then we are going to get into how to assemble the perfect smoking room for you and even a few of your friends.
The “Secret Smoker”
The secret smoker is a device that you can take with you anywhere. It will get rid of almost 100% of the smoke that leaves your mouth and with it, almost all of the weed smell. Leaving you with nothing to worry about, even when you’re at work or at a family member’s house!
The basic idea is to have something you can blow your smoke into that will filter the smoke and scrub the smell. The “Advanced Version” also houses a bowl, and allows you to stop the bowl from smoking too.
Follow the instructions. After you make it, modify it. Send the photos of your modified Secret Smoker to firstname.lastname@example.org … I love to see the ways that people modify my inventions. Get creative enough and I’ll have the Weedub Team showcase your modifications on the site.
Supplies fo the Secret Smoker
Here is a list of supplies you will need in order to build the “Secret Smoker”:
- A 6” long piece of 1 1/4” diameter grey/white/black PVC pipe. (that’s 1 1/4” Outside Diameter) and threaded on both ends end- Home Depot
- A 1 1/4“ PVC threaded cap that fits that pipe
- A 1 1/4“ to 1” PVC adapter – threaded
- A rubber cap that fits over the 1” end of the PVC adapter
- A 1” steel circular screen
- Dryer sheets
- A 1 1/4“conical filter (from a respirator mask)
- A small activated charcoal filter
- Sand paper – two different grits to smooth the edges of the pipe
- PVC glue
Tools you will need:
Advanced version, add these supplies:
- A 1 1/4“ PVC valve – to let the smoke out of the bowl, then switch and blow out of the cleaner tube,
- A rubber grommet – put whatever bowl you have into the hole and the device will hold it there with a rubber grommet
- A ½” bowl – One that threads into a normal cheap metal pipe
Advanced version, add these tools:
- A drill bit – To drill the hole for the bowl
- A tap – To thread the hole in the PVC that holds the bowl.
- PVC saw
Assuming you can borrow the tools, the final cost of the Secret Smoker should be around $20 USD, and the Advanced version should be around $25 USD.
Here are the Instructions, step by step:
- Screw the reducing adapter onto the length of pipe.
- Insert the activated carbon filter through the large opening.
- Insert the particulate filter and make sure it fits snugly
- Use the hole saw bit to cut a 1’ hole into the center of the threaded end cap
- Glue the screen onto the inside of the threaded end cap and let dry.
- Insert the dryer sheets and screw on the threaded end cap
Additional instructions for the advanced version:
- Unscrew the end cap and unpack the filters and such
- Drill a hole into the top of the pipe, 1” away from where the pipe meets the reducer
- Use the tap to thread the hole
- Use the PVC saw to cut the PVC tube into two pieces. Make the cut about one inch from where you drilled the hole for the bowl. (in between the bowl hole and the threaded end cap)
- Use the sandpaper to smooth the edges.
- Glue the valve into place, inserting both halves of the tube into either side of the valve. Let sit until fully dry.
- Re-pack the filters and dryer sheets, and you’re finished
Instructions For Use
After you’re all through making your Secret Smoker, you’ll want to test it out! It’s extremely easy to use and easy to carry with you wherever you go.
- Uncap both ends of the Secret Smoker.
- Take the bowl piece out and screw it into the threaded hole on the top of the Secret Smoker.
- Make sure the valve is closed and pack your bowl and light it.
- Take your hit by sucking in.
- Switch the valve to open, put a rubber cap on the bowl, and blow out through the Secret Smoker.
- When finished, close the valve, place the bowl piece back inside the Secret Smoker and replace the rubber end caps.
The directions are even easier for the simple version: Just light a joint and exhale through the Secret Smoker.
The filters will help get rid of almost all the smoke, and almost all of the smell. The Dryer sheets will help mask any remaining smells that the filters miss!
It’s that easy.
Make sure to replace the filters every once in a while, and the dryer sheets a bit more often. Your Secret Smoker will last you for years, mine has! The best part about it is that no-one will know what the hell it is. You can decorate it however you want, and break the entire thing down for easy cleaning.
My friends have seen mine and made metal ones out of many different materials, so the sky’s the limit.
And YES, it really does work!
The Connoisseur’s Stealth Smoke Room
***Buy the book to access this tutorial and all of it’s illustrations plus MUCH MORE!***
That’s right, there is an entire tutorial in the book, with professional illustrations that I couldn’t even include on the site. The Connoisseur’s Stealth Smoke Room is a badass tutorial that teaches you exactly how to build a smoking room in your house that noone can detect if they aren’t in the room with you while you’re smoking.
Get the book and you’ll also receive detailed access to notes and photos of all the technical components of the Secret Smoker. Words are sometimes hard to understand and with the space I had in the book, I was able to fit in or link out to pictures of everything. Check it out.

Gain access to even more info and more tutorials with your own copy of “How To Hide The Smell Of Weed: A ‘No Holds Barred’ Guide To Fresh Air” The world’s foremost book on covering up the smell of your stinky weed!
Now remember, there’s almost no full proof way to teach you how to hide the smell of weed. But to better equip yourself with this knowledge, keep reading the rest of the series and get your hands on the book.
I have consolidated all the articles and tutorials here on the site about hiding the smell of weed into one place, and given you extra tutorials and information that you won’t find anywhere else. The book is more than worth the measly $19 you’ll pay for it!
Using those methods and/or building the things I have described here in detail for you, will help alleviate any worries that you may have about someone smelling you smoking.
Of course, I always tell people that it’s best to have a sit down with the people in your life that don’t approve of you smoking. Try and teach them a little more about weed so that you don’t have to worry about smoking around them.
But, there will always be those situations where a lesson on weed is inappropriate, like your job or school, and that is when the techniques from this tutorial will prove invaluable.
