Cigarettes and marijuana have a striking aroma that can be smelled by others. While smoking indoors isn't a good option, there are certain times when you're forced to do it. If you want to smoke indoors, there are several things you can do to prevent other people from catching you. You can smoke in the bathroom, direct the smoke out of the house, create a smoke filter, and get rid of the evidence.
Part 1 of 4: Smoking in the Bathroom
Step 1. Cover the door gap with a towel
To prevent cigarette smoke from escaping, you can fold a towel and place it in the gap under the door. Make sure the towel covers and presses the entire opening of the door.
Step 2. Turn on the warm water
Taking a shower is a good excuse for lingering in the bathroom. In addition, the steam from the warm water can mix with cigarette smoke and hide the smell. The sound of water can also hide the sound of matches and your breath.
- You can also play music to mute your voice.
- Make sure you shower after smoking (or wet your hair to make it look like you've showered) so others don't get suspicious.
Step 3. Direct the cigarette smoke out or into the vent
When smoking, make sure the smoke is directed to an open window or vent. Make sure no one outside the window can see the cigarette smoke coming out of the bathroom.
Step 4. Hide the smell of cigarette smoke by washing your hair
If you have time to shower, make sure you wash your hair with shampoo. The smell of shampoo will fill the bathroom quickly so that the smell of cigarette smoke will not be smelled.
If you don't have time to wash your hair, you can mix shampoo with warm water in the sink
Step 5. Throw cigarette ashes and other evidence down the toilet
After smoking, empty the cigarette pipe or throw ashes and cigarette butts down the toilet, then flush. Make sure there is no cigarette ash or other evidence on the bathroom floor that could indicate that you have smoked recently.
Step 6. Eliminate the smell of cigarette smoke with air freshener
Use a strong scented air freshener that can neutralize odors. Spray air freshener before leaving the bathroom.
If there is no air freshener, you can use perfume, body spray, or cologne. Spray on body and bathroom
Part 2 of 4: Smoking in the Room
Step 1. Cover your hair
Hair is one part of the body that is quite porous so odors will be more easily attached. Tie your hair and cover it with a towel or bandana to prevent cigarette smoke from sticking.
If you have a plastic shower cap, this is ideal for wearing as it protects your hair and prevents the smell of cigarette smoke from sticking out
Step 2. Protect your clothes
The more clothes you wear, the easier the smell of cigarette smoke will stick to. Take off your shirt or roll up your sleeves.
You can also wear a jacket (or T-shirt) specifically designed for smoking. Hide the jacket in a safe place and wear it when going to smoke. Wash the jacket at least once a week so that the smell is not too strong
Step 3. Light a scented candle
You need something that can hide cigarette smoke. Therefore, light a scented candle when smoking. If scented candles are not available, you can spray air freshener before and after smoking.
Step 4. Close the gap in the bedroom door so that the smoke can't get out
So that cigarette smoke does not come out and fill other rooms, place a wet towel in the gap under the room door. The wet towel can prevent cigarette smoke from escaping and absorb the smell.
Step 5. Open the window
You have to direct the cigarette smoke out of the room. If you can't get out through windows or vents, the smell of cigarette smoke will stick to the walls, carpet, furniture, or linens.
If you have a fireplace duct in your room, it can help to drain cigarette smoke. Fireplaces are specially designed to remove smoke from the house. Therefore, cigarette smoke will be easier to remove if there is a fireplace duct in your room
Step 6. Use a fan to direct the cigarette smoke
Properly functioning room ventilation can prevent you from being caught smoking. Turn on the fan to let the cigarette smoke out through the window and disguise the shape. A fan that points to a window or vent is a good choice.
If you smoke in a bathroom that has ventilation or a fan, turn on the fan and direct the smoke at it so it can't be seen and smelled. Fans can suck in air particles and excess moisture
Step 7. Hide the smell of cigarette smoke
Even if cigarette smoke doesn't fill the room, the smell may still linger on your body. Hide the smell of cigarette smoke as much as possible.
For example, you can apply aftershave on your finger, peel and eat an orange, or spray perfume with a strong scent
Part 3 of 4: Filtering Cigarette Smoke Using a Filter
Step 1. Prepare the materials to make the filter
Prepare a cardboard roll of toilet paper and a drying cloth when you are going to smoke secretly. To filter out the odor, you can blow the smoke into a toilet paper roll filled with a drying cloth.
You can use a 500mL coke bottle with a hole in the bottom. This bottle will work well because the mouth is specially designed to fit in the mouth
Step 2. Insert three or four sheets of dryer paper into the rollers
Make sure the drying paper is covered all over the rollers so that the cigarette smoke is filtered out properly. If using a water bottle, load six or seven sheets of drying paper.
Step 3. Blow the cigarette smoke into the filter
After smoking a cigarette, stick your mouth in one of the roller holes and blow the smoke into it. Make sure all cigarette smoke is blown into the filter. The smoke coming out of the filter will smell like drying paper.
If you can't make a filter, you can blow the smoke onto a towel, t-shirt, or other wet cloth. Wet cloth can absorb the smell of cigarette smoke. Use a cloth that is rarely used, then wash it after use
Part 4 of 4: Eliminating Evidence
Step 1. Turn off cigarettes, pipe cigarettes, or marijuana
When you have finished smoking, immediately extinguish the cigarette, pipe cigarette, or marijuana. The best way to put out a cigarette is by stumbling the cigarette against an ashtray or wetting it.
- After a few minutes, the cigarette pipe will turn itself off if it is not vacuumed. You can also turn off the pipe by plugging the hole in the pipe (as long as it's not hot) so there's no oxygen in it. If the pipe is too hot, drip water to turn it off.
- To extinguish marijuana, you can stumble it on an ashtray or drip water on the coals. Do not wet the entire pot if you are going to light it again.
Step 2. Clean the ashtray
If you are using a small plate, cup, or jar as an ashtray, clean it with warm water and soap until clean.
If you use cans or other disposable items, you can throw them away immediately. When tossed in the trash, make sure the can is covered with other trash. It is better to clean the can first so that the smell of cigarettes does not smell
Step 3. Dispose of evidence
The easiest way to get rid of cigarette ashes and butts is to flush them in the toilet. Roll up cigarettes using paper towels to prevent ash and other debris from floating in the toilet.
If you don't want to throw evidence down the toilet, put the ashes and cigarette butts in a plastic bag and throw them in the public trash
Step 4. Eliminate the smell of cigarette smoke
After smoking, the smell of cigarette smoke will still stick to your hands, clothes, and breath. You can get rid of the smell of cigarette smoke by washing your hands, brushing your teeth, showering, and changing clothes.
- Washing hands. Wash hands with soap after smoking. Washing your hands with water will not be enough to get rid of the smell of cigarettes. If you can't use the bathroom, get rid of the smell of cigarettes by applying an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
- Brushing teeth. The smell of cigarettes can also stick to your mouth or breath. Make sure you brush your teeth for two minutes after smoking. Don't forget to clean your tongue and gums. You can make your breath fresher by using mouthwash and mints or chewing gum min.
- Bath. Cigarette smoke will stick to your body. Therefore, taking a shower is the best way to get rid of cigarette smoke. Use soap, shampoo, and body wash. Do not forget to wash your hair because cigarette smoke is very easy to stick to the hair.
- Changing clothes. After bathing, wear clean and fragrant clothes. Even if cigarette smoke has been directed out of the house, the smell of cigarette smoke can still stick to your clothes. Make sure you do the laundry so other people don't catch you smoking.
- After brushing your teeth, apply lotion to your hands so you don't smell the cigarettes.
- Spray the room where you smoke with an air freshener like Stella or Glade. You can also use an odorless air freshener. This air freshener is specially designed to eliminate the smell of cigarettes.
- Replace the dryer paper on the filter after five cigarettes. Even if the drying paper still smells good, it's best to use a new dryer paper so that the smell of cigarettes is filtered out properly.
- Cover the smoke detector with a plastic bag (two plastic bags if there are holes) so that cigarette smoke is not detected. Remove the plastic bag after the clean air returns.
- Don't smoke in no-smoking areas, such as airplane bathrooms or courthouses. You might be able to trick a human nose. However, you can't fool a smoke detector. You can also be fined or fined if you smoke in a non-smoking area.
- Do not spray products containing aerosols near lit cigarettes or flames. This product is highly flammable.
