When we first encountered Whiff Out at the IPCPR trade show in 2015, I think we were all a bit skepitcal of its claims and most of us didn’t give it much thought. One of our group, Wes, was more curious than the rest of us and reached out to Michael at Whiff Industries to get a review of their Ashtray Deodorizer set up. I think we were all pleasantly surprised when Wes gave it a “great” score in his review back in November. Since then I have tried it myself in my ashtrays in my smoking room/man cave and I have to say it really does make a difference, and I can totally second Wes’ opinion.
Now, a few months back Michael emailed us about a new product, a Spray Deodorizer that you could theoretically spray on anything like clothing to eliminate smoke smell. Here is its’ description:
- Eliminate smoke odors on contact with Whiff Out Spray.
- Spray on clothing for on the go odor control.
- Whiff out spray actively deodorizes.
- Eliminate odors in the air lounges, home, offices, Cars, Boats, etc.
- Spray on upholstery or carpets to freshen.
- Safe to use on leather and vinyl surfaces.
Michael asked us to review this new product and I decided to tackle this one. To sum it up in two words: it works! Honest to God, it really does what it says, I know it sounds too good to be true. Now, it does have it’s limitations, it’s not a miracle worker, but it’s close.
The presentation is very nice in a little portable aluminum bottle with 2 oz. in it. I’ve been using it for a few months and haven’t run out yet, a little goes a long way. The smell itself is much like the powder, not off-putting, but not fragrant either. It’s not Davidoff Coolwater, but it’s not the inside of an ashtray either.
To run this through the ringer, I gave the pass/fail to my wife, and she is a tough nut to crack, she makes me shower after every cigar or I’m not allowed in bed. Not only did she give it the thumbs up after smoking several times, but I managed to smoke a few times at the office and after using the spray on my clothing, and she never even noticed (don’t tell her). The smell lingers for a few minutes after you use it, so she would notice if I had just sprayed it on, but after it dissipates it takes the odor with it. Now, this does not do anything about your breath, and don’t try to spray it in your mouth, but for all intents and purposes this is a winner and really does what it says.
Overall, this stuff is awesome! Whiff is coming out with some really cool, pratical stuff. You can check out their website here, or if you would like to purchase this spray, famous smoke has it in stock and you can buy it here.
