A glass bong is a great way to enjoy your herb or tobacco, but it can also be a source of unwanted noise and smell that can disturb your neighbors, roommates, or family members. If you want to use a glass bong discreetly and respectfully, here are some tips to help you reduce the sound and odor of your smoking session.
Choose a quiet place
The first step to using a glass bong without making too much noise is to choose a quiet place where you won’t be heard or interrupted. Avoid places with thin walls, windows, or doors that can let the sound escape. You can also use some soundproofing materials, such as blankets, pillows, or towels, to cover any gaps or openings that might leak noise. If possible, choose a place with good ventilation, such as a bathroom with a fan or a window, to help disperse the smell.
Use a smaller bong
The size of your bong can affect how loud it is when you use it. A smaller bong will produce less water bubbling and less smoke volume than a larger one, which means less noise and less smell. You can also look for bongs with percolators, which are devices that filter and cool the smoke through water, resulting in smoother and quieter hits. However, avoid bongs with too many percolators, as they can make the draw harder and louder.
Fill your bong with warm water
The temperature of the water in your bong can also influence how noisy it is. Warm water will create less bubbles and less resistance than cold water, which means less sound and less coughing. Warm water will also make the smoke more humid and less harsh on your throat and lungs, which can reduce the smell and the need to exhale forcefully.
Use a sploof
A sploof is a homemade device that you can use to filter and mask the smell of your smoke. To make a sploof, you will need an empty toilet paper roll, some dryer sheets, and a rubber band. Simply stuff some dryer sheets inside the roll and secure them with the rubber band at one end. Then, when you take a hit from your bong, exhale through the sploof and let the dryer sheets absorb and neutralize the odor.
Use an air purifier or an odor eliminator
If you want to get rid of any lingering smell after using your glass bong, you can use an air purifier or an odor eliminator spray to freshen up the air. An air purifier will filter out any smoke particles and odors from the air, while an odor eliminator spray will mask them with a pleasant fragrance. You can also light some candles, incense, or essential oils to create a relaxing atmosphere and cover up any traces of smoke.
Clean your bong regularly
One of the most important things to do if you want to use a glass bong without making too much noise or smell is to clean it regularly. A dirty bong will not only produce more noise and smell, but also affect the taste and quality of your herb or tobacco. To clean your glass bong, you will need some rubbing alcohol, coarse salt, and hot water. Here are the steps to follow:
- Empty your bong of any water and ash.
- Pour some rubbing alcohol and salt into the bong and shake it well.
- Let the mixture sit for 10 minutes or more.
- Rinse your bong with hot water until it is clean.
- Dry your bong with a towel or let it air dry.
You can also use some pipe cleaners or cotton swabs to reach any hard-to-clean spots.
Using a glass bong without making too much noise or smell is possible if you follow these tips. By choosing a quiet place, using a smaller bong with warm water, using a sploof, using an air purifier or an odor eliminator spray, and cleaning your bong regularly, you can enjoy your herb or tobacco discreetly and respectfully without bothering others or attracting attention.
