Whiff Out

Whiff Industries: Clearing The Air

Way back in 2015 I got to sample some of the original Whiff Out Crystalline Ashtray Deodorizer and write a little review on it. Here we are in 2021 and now they have several new products on the market to fit a variety of personal tastes when it comes to clearing the air of smoke odor.

Whiff Industries still offers their original formula Crystalline Ashtray Deodorizer in the “Classic” scent but now also comes in “Vintage” (notes of cedar and vanilla) and “Rustic” (notes of cedar). This stuff is still my go to product for my ashtrays, especially my car however, since they have released a reed diffuser, wax melts and a spray I had to test them out.

I started with the Reed Diffuser since I see these things in nearly every bathroom I’ve ever been in and wondered how it would work in a larger smoke room. It comes in the same three scents, “Classic”, “Vintage” and “Rustic”, I went with the “Rustic”. I cracked it open, chucked the reeds in there and put it in my smoke room which is a 20′ x 15′ room and left it there for a day. When I came back the next morning for my breakfast cigar I was surprised that something that seemed so small could fill the room with a pleasant smell. I smoked my cigar then left, when I came back the following morning the diffuser had done its job clearing the room of all but a faint cigar smell. This was the case for the couple of weeks I tested it.

After the diffuser I moved on to the Odor Eliminating Wax Melts which comes in the same three scents as the crystals and diffuser so again I chose the cedar scent. Now these guys really do the job. After smoking my morning smoke, I let the wax melt and kept it going for about 20 minutes then left for the day. (Turning off the wax melter obviously.) When I returned the next morning the room smelled clean and fresh to the point that even the missus said it smelled good. Each pack has 6 cubes in it and can be re-melted up to 3 times and still get rid of cigar odor, you can use it more but it won’t eliminate the cigar smell just give the room a light scent.

Next it was on to the tough one…my car. I smoke in my car and I mean I smoke a lot in my car, to the point that only other cigar smokers will get in it. Now I don’t mean I’m a dirty person I keep my car clean but I live in south Florida so it’s hot all the time. Combine 90+ degree temperatures along with cigar odor and it’s a recipe for some serious smell. For this I decided to hit it with a combo of the crystals and spray. I started with adding the crystals to my car ashtray and then took off for a trip to Miami (about an 1 & 1/2 hour drive) and had two cigars on the way. Since I was on the freeway having all the windows down was not an option I could only keep one down about half way. When I arrived at my location I hit the car up with the Spray Deodorizer I sprayed a bit on my clothes* then closed up the car and headed into a meeting. 3 hours later I returned and was really impressed at how well these products worked together, the smell of cigars was practically eliminated. I’ve been doing this ever since then and my car smells great.

If you are looking for a solution to odors from your cigar lifestyle, Whiff Out is the way forward. All of their products work great however I personally am partial to the wax melts for the home or smoke room and the crystal/spray combo for the vehicle. All of it is available through there website, Amazon and a variety of B/M retailers so run out and grab some and keep your stuff smelling great.

*In the manufactures list of uses for the spray it is not directly stated to apply to clothes you are wearing but I figured what the hell I’d try it.

Whiff Out Ashtray Deodorizer

IMG_5805A couple of weeks ago I was contacted by Michael from Whiff Industries with the opportunity to test out their Whiff Out Ashtray Deodorizer. At this point the only thing I knew about them was the bit I had seen on Insatgram so I decided to do a little research before the samples arrived and headed over to their website.

I was surprised to find out that they started in Pennsylvania over 50 years ago with the idea of making affordable deodorizers using only natural ingredients. While spending time over the years creating home and industrial deodorizers in the 1990’s they were approached to create a private label carpet powder. Soon they began offering custom scented deodorizing powders, still using the purest natural ingredients followed by the creation of the Whiff Out Ashtray Deodorizer.

I smoke in my car and in enclosed spaces nearly everyday so when the Whiff Out arrived I was fairly anxious to try it out and see how it would work. To avoid overloading the car I sprinkled just a bit (maybe a teaspoon) of the fine powder on the floor of the drivers and passenger side figuring I could always add more if it wasn’t enough. About an hour later I had to go for a few errands and was surprised that the smell of smoke was no longer in my car. For once it didn’t smell like an ashtray but had a light clean smell to the air that was not just cigarette smell covered by perfume.

Next up was the small room environment. For this I used a little more Whiff Out was used in the ashtray mixed with a bit of sand. The ratio was about ¼ Whiff Out to ¾ sand. It was allowed to sit for a day before smoking in the room again. When I returned the next day there was the same pleasant odor as the car. After smoking a few cigars that evening and returning to the room the next morning I discovered that the smell was gone again.

In these two environments, Whiff Out is a great working product. It has a great smell, is reasonably priced, and doesn’t take up a lot of room for storage in your cabinet. Not to mention it’s made in America, they use recycled packaging on all of their products, use natural materials to produce eco friendly products, and all products are manufactured using 100% renewable wind energy for all electricity uses.
