If you have a landlord or neighbors that are anti-cannabis people, you basically have two options. The first one is to stop smoking which isn’t something we will do, ever. The second option is to learn how to make a sploof and start using it. The main purpose of sploof is to filter the smoke and eliminate the cannabis odor. As such, you can smoke anywhere you want. Below is a detailed guide on how to make a sploof. It is extremely simple and easy.
Things you will need to make weed smoke filter
The first thing here is to understand what a sploof is actually. It is a tube with a sheet or another filter addition that is used to filter smoke. To make one you need basic items you already have in your house. Anyway, the complete list of essentials is below.
- Toilet paper roll or cardboard piece
- Scissors (utility knife can be used as well)
- Rubber band
- Dryer sheets
The first thing to do is to gather all of the items and you are ready to start. We must add that all the steps are mandatory and they should be used precisely as we discuss them.
Prepare the main piece
The first step is really simple. All you have to do is to prepare the main piece. If you use a plastic bottle, there is some modification needed. Cut 1/3 of the top and the bottom. You will get the single piece that looks like a massive pipe. All of you who are using a toilet paper roll can proceed to the next step. Even the best sploof is made from toilet paper rolls.
If you don’t like an idea of using a toilet paper roll, there is an alternative. You can use a paper towel roll from the kitchen. Cut it in 2 and you are once again ready to move to the next step.
Pack the sheets
Here you need to insert the dry sheets into the pipe you created earlier. In general, you will need around 3 or 4 sheets although you can use less or more if needed. The requirement is based on the size of the main piece. Make sure that the sheets are packaged loose and there is plenty of free space for movement inside.
Add the filter
In order to make the smoking buddy fully operational, you will need to add the last piece of the sheet on one side of the main piece. There are a few things to keep in mind. The first one is the end of the central piece you will add a filter to. For all of you who used a toilet paper roll, any of the sides is an excellent choice. There are no additional setups or anything else to worry about.
On the other side, if you have used a plastic bottle, you will need to attach the sheet on the wider part of the bottle. This is done in order to be able to use the narrower side easily. Once you install the sheet precisely as you want, secure it with a rubber strap, duct tape or wire. Keep in mind that the filter is an essential piece of your sploof and it must not move while smoking.
Make it look better
For those of you who want to make homemade sploof look even better, this is the step for them. You will need to trim the sheet and remove loose ends. As soon as you are done, you can see that the entire item looks better and more aesthetically pleasing.
For the side that goes in your mouth, you can use a utility knife and cut a small piece in order to make it more comfortable while smoking. This isn’t needed for most of us, but we had to mention.
Your simple and effective DIY smoke buddy is ready to use. The last step depends on your individual preference only. You can use pens, colors, foil or anything else to customize it precisely as you need. Here you need to pay close attention to two facts. The first one is the fact you must not use sprays. They are toxic and you don’t want to make contact with the spray while smoking!
The second thing to keep in mind is that the sploof will get hot while using it. Make sure that your customization method doesn’t affect the ability of the unit to withstand higher temperature.
