For discrete pot smokers, there are various techniques you can implement to hide your weed smell indoors. One of the easiest ways to hide your weed smell is using a towel. Below are the best ways to towel your door.
Note: All toweling under the door should be accompanied by a fan blowing air away from the door or out an open window. Febreze is also helpful in any pot smoking situation in which you wish to mask odor.
Hide Your Weed Smell Technique 1: The Classic
A high school and college favorite. The Classic consists of rolling one bath towel lengthwise and affixing it to the space beneath the door. Easy, basic, toweling 101. Balled-up clothing is a good towel substitute if you’re in a pinch. Whichever material you use, make sure the space beneath the door is completely covered and the towel or clothing is flush against the door.
The Double is similar to The Classic, but with an added layer of protection. Instead of one towel, place another on top of the existing rolled up mass. Again, if you’re in a pinch, emptying your laundry basket at the base of the door and jamming a pile of dirty undies in and around the space between the door and floor should suffice.
The Sand Box
A technique reserved for ambitious marijuana smokers who move like ninjas. The Sand Box covers all your bases; above the door, below the door and the two sides, and requires four (4) towels. First, employ The Classic beneath the door. Then, using duct tape or thumbtacks, affix a towel to either side of the door, covering both seams. The towels should be open and flush over the seam. Above the door, again employ The Classic, suspending the rolled towel by taping the ends. The Sandbox is not recommended if you’re anticipating guests since all your hard work will unravel as soon as the door opens.
Spray Foam Insulation
Who says towels need to monopolize the “hide your weed smell” industry? Purchase some Spray Foam Insulation and watch as that yellow gunk immediately clogs up the space between the bottom of the door and floor. You can even spray the side seams! Just don’t expect to receive your security deposit in full if you’re renting.
The “Don’t Exhale” technique is for experienced smokers only and does not involve towel use. Of all the methods for hiding your weed smoke, “Don’t Exhale” is perhaps the most gangster and requires the least amount of physical activity. Here’s what you do:
- Inhale weed from your favorite device or from your favorite person (via “shotgun kiss“).
- Do not exhale. If you don’t exhale, no one outside the room will be able to smell the delicious activities happening inside the room.
- Eventually, maybe, exhale.
Hopefully, the aforementioned towel techniques will help you lock in the scent of your buds keeping you in a perpetual state of bliss. Or at least will keep the smell from traveling to unwelcome nostrils.
