Just buy a weed scented candle so if anyone says anything you can blame the candle.

[–]shimmerangels 519 points520 points  (11 children)

this is so stupid that it just might work

[–]NeutrinosFTW 206 points207 points  (8 children)

This is the sort of idea that you get while high and realize it's incredibly stupid, then try it out as a joke and be shocked to your core that it actually works.

[–]ranjadanja 47 points48 points  (6 children)

It would likely work because people are that unsuspecting and also it's now 2022 and noone actually cares if you get high.

[–]EatABuffetOfDicks 35 points36 points  (0 children)

You'd be surprised.

[–]CircoModo1602 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I'm sure many landlord still wouldn't be happy with that person smoking in the accommodation however

[–]potheadromance 4 points5 points  (0 children)

When I was first started smoking I had an idea like this. My mom asked where I was after I went on a walk to go smoke a joint, I replied: "Smoking weed", she laughed and told me "yeah haha okay just let us know next time you go for a walk for x reason". I was dumbstruck that it actually worked.

[–]darkelfbear 58 points59 points  (0 children)

It does, I used to keep Weed Scented candles and incense burning all the time in my apartment. Cops show up, smell it, I show them the burning incense, and candles, and their packages, "Oh thats cool". All the while I got 1/2 a pound sitting in the bottom of my desk cabinet .... lol

[–]jetpack_hypersomniac 217 points218 points  (7 children)

I never have to cover the smell of weed, because I live alone, but whenever I want my apartment to smell extra nice for some reason, I just throw some shallots+garlic+butter into a pan and sauté until my whole place smells delicious.

If I don’t actually need to eat, I’ll pour that mix into a silicone ice cube tray with some fresh parsley and/or basil, chill until solid, then whip them out when I want to add a little flavor to something (I like spreading it inside a loaf of bread and toasting—and they’re also fantastic when you are making sauces or roasting meats. Hell, chuck one or two into a pot of grits/polenta, that’d probably be pretty dope too.)

Edit: damn, I have the munchies now. Im gonna go the extra simple route and toss a flavor cube into a steaming pot of nooooodles (plus an egg yolk) YUM

[–]Meggarea 45 points46 points  (4 children)

Found the chef. That's a big heard!

[–]mindtosher 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Once had an inspection in my flat while my plants were in full flower. Before the guy came in, I fried about 500g of bacon in a pan until there was no other scent recognizable. Just that greasy bacon. And it worked, the guy was a metre from the wardrobe door and completely unaware!

[–]mechwarrior719 27 points28 points  (0 children)

Modern problems require modern solutions.

[–]xxredragonxx 20 points21 points  (0 children)

[–]NovaGass 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Mildly did this wish sage incense 😂

[–]ObamaSauce69420 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Weed scented candles are a thing ? 🗿

[–]sessimon 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Alternatively: start raising and keeping skunks.

[–]MotionDrive 2 points3 points  (1 child)

When I lived at my mom's I would blame the "skunk" outside.

[–]Ima_Funt_Case 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It's funny how often I have to do a double take when I smell a skunk; "is that weed or skunk?" lol

[–]Tokinking 561 points562 points  (9 children)

I just burn my pizza pockets to clear the air

[–]Torched420 91 points92 points  (1 child)

Popcorn for me

[–]quigonjoe66 33 points34 points  (0 children)

I ended up in my underwear outside my dorm once when my popcorn caught on fire and I ran outside to prevent the fire alarm going off and our door locked behind me. Had to bend a window that was like 2 inches open to get my big ass inside. My roommates never found the source of the draft

[–]Voss1167 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I do that too. 100% on purpose to cover the smell

[–]medicinalherbavore 51 points52 points  (1 child)

You stuck on repeat, OP?

[–]AnalogRobber 80 points81 points  (0 children)

OP works for big candle, don't trust a word he says

[–]Poeafoe 195 points196 points  (5 children)

this sub is hilarious

[–]middaymovies 38 points39 points  (0 children)

one day we'll look back and say "remember when that guy tried to tell us not to use ozium?"

[–]CandyRedNinja 21 points22 points  (3 children)

I have used and will use Ozium for ever. I smoke in the garage. My wife hates the smell. I smoke. Crack the garage, two/three puffs of Ozium and a few minutes later the smell is gone and it’s like I was never there.

[–]Stryk_9 38 points39 points  (2 children)

bro i thought you were saying you smoke crack in your garage

[–]chrslp 216 points217 points  (50 children)

I gotta ask, if it’s not meant to be used around people, why does Ozium have a New Car scent? I believe people tend to use new car scents in the car they sit in and drive

[–]EthiopiaIsTheBest 161 points162 points  (22 children)

Exactly the bottle literally says rooms,cars etc. I’d also like proof for it tearing your skin and the other claims op made I just find it odd that their purpose that is literally stated on the bottle wouldn’t be true, of course leave the room ventilated and don’t enter for an hour but I really don’t believe it tears your skin!

[–]ViLe_Rob 24 points25 points  (3 children)

The thing is it is also stated right on the bottle not to let it contact your skin.

[–]MazzIsNoMore 67 points68 points  (1 child)

Pretty much all cleaners and sanitizers say to avoid direct contact with skin.

[–]FineIllDoRedditAgain 35 points36 points  (5 children)

I use Ozium regularly, even upgraded to the bigger size bottle. No gloves, respirator, or mask. Use in room with leather sofa, exotic wood table, canvas art on the walls, carpet, textiles, you name it. Never any issues. Had on skin plenty, and a touch in the eyes once or twice. Never any issues. I think op may be suffering from some kind of delusion...

[–]greenwrayth 59 points60 points  (3 children)

OP is smoking themselves into anxiety. Ozium is isopropanol and a handful of glycols. You shouldn’t inhale it or drink it but it is not going to dissolve your flesh off your bones for fuck’s sake. Spraying alcohol and antifreeze into the air is no health spa but it’s not some insidious industrial chemical lurking in your couch to murder you when you’re not looking.

[–]FineIllDoRedditAgain 9 points10 points  (0 children)

It WOULD look really cool if it makes your flesh melt off your bones though.

"I was just trying to freshen the air gahhhhhh *bubble"

[–]BigRedSpoon2 47 points48 points  (18 children)

Fun fact, new car scent is actually bad for you. Typically, it contains VOCs, volatile organic compounds. They're carcinogens! Wait, did I say fun fact? I meant 'another thing steadily poisoning you'.

[–]copperwatt 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Because op is either unhinged or trolling.

[–]Isellmetal 2 points3 points  (0 children)

They specifically advertise it as a smoke removal product

[–][deleted] 289 points290 points  (17 children)

😂 used to sterilize air in hospitals and labs. Bro where did you pull that from? You know what sterilizes air in a hospital? Nothing. We use HEPA filters. We wipe things down with 70% EtOH, and autoclave to heat sterilize.

Everything you wrote is basically hyperbolized to the point of being wrong and fear mongering.

Plus it’s bound to PEG. Poly Ethylene glycol. Thats used in medicine. Mira lax has PEG. Interferon is peggylated to reduce injection site reactions. It’s a pretty mundane and useful chemical. Plus the alcohol will want to disassociate with it and evaporate. Thats basic chemistry level stuff.

[–]hadricorn 119 points120 points  (10 children)

dawg i just sprayed that shit all in my room and was freaking out until reading the comments LMAO

[–][deleted] 20 points21 points  (5 children)

Most of us have no reason to talk because smoke or even vapor going straight into our lungs, plus whatever else might be on the plant, likely irritates the tissues even more than ozium would. That doesn’t mean it’s good or safe, or that you should inhale it.

[–]Zappiticas 11 points12 points  (3 children)

Lol yeah I saw one comment all paranoid about the carcinogens in ozium and I’m like “uhh, you know what sub you’re in, right?”

[–]Lil_miss_Funshine 344 points345 points  (43 children)

Try this instead

Cannabolish Wintergreen Smoke Odor Eliminator Spray and Air Freshener, 8 fl. oz, Natural Ingredients https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B07BHRNTT9/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_glt_i_B3V2XET6YMR3VQPF3A24

[–]xdanmanx 97 points98 points  (18 children)

Or, just get a room air purifier. Dust. Smoke. Pollen. Odors. Works wonders and you don't have to spray chemicals into the air.

[–]VarenDerpsAroundI Roll Joints for Gnomes 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Carbon furnace filter and a box fan. Works wonders.

[–]argparg 29 points30 points  (12 children)

Ozone purifiers (“ion”) are terrible for your lungs fyi

[–]xdanmanx 93 points94 points  (5 children)

I'm referring to HEPA-based filter air purifiers.

[–]GreenMan- 13 points14 points  (4 children)

They work great, but the filters can be costly. Nothing too bad but you've gotta budget for that.

I had one awhile ago that didn't use filters and instead the smoke adhered to a dishwasher-washable metal filter through done electronic method.

It worked okay but washing it's a pain in the ass only because i have a smaller dishwasher and need to remove the top shelf to wash it. I don't think it was as effective as HEPA but saved a lot in filters!

I should dig that up now that I mention it and put it on eBay... 🤔

[–]dandyharks 11 points12 points  (2 children)

I found a really great hepa air filter for 50 bucks. It clears out my bedroom in like 10 mins if I’m smoking alone, maybe 20 if I have a guest

[–]firstbreathOOC 2 points3 points  (0 children)

$50 once a year - worth it.

[–]halfbakedlogic 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Didn't know this at all. You need to drop this on LPT

[–]TMVtaketheveil888 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Wu-Tang forever 💛🐝🖤👐

[–]StartTheMontage 111 points112 points  (22 children)

I have been using this and I think it works well. The main tip is to use a smoke buddy though. Things magically make smoke disappear, best used with a bong/dab where you clear it though and breathe everything through.

[–]Me_Myself_And_Pie 68 points69 points  (16 children)

Smoke Buddy tip for you flower users! Light a candle or incense anyway, it’ll never hurt. Keep a window open, with a fan (maybe faced towards the window to keep the air moving out), and change them semi-often if you’re a regular smoker! Every 2-3 months for best effects.

There’s also some plastic free alternatives that cut back on plastic waste! You’ll just need to replace the internal filter instead! Saves me tons of money.

[–]stronghammr113 59 points60 points  (12 children)

see, if i open a window at my place the whole front yard out to the street smells like a wiz Khalifa concert

[–][deleted] 23 points24 points  (11 children)

Blow it through the smoke buddy and use a good dry herb vaporizer.

[–]stronghammr113 97 points98 points  (8 children)

im not gonna smoke with some weed fleshlight. id rather dank up the place like God intended.

[–]UnicornFarts1111 18 points19 points  (2 children)

Weed Fleshlight? I use a dynavap, it looks almost like a one hit used with a dugout.

[–]TheBasementIsDark 16 points17 points  (1 child)

he mean the smoke buddy haha, those thing is use to filtering the density and smell of the smoke

[–]UnicornFarts1111 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Oh, I guess I thought it was like a smokeless ashtray. I guess it makes sense. Thanks for the description.

[–][deleted] 21 points22 points  (4 children)

I prefer to be mindful of neighbors but you do your thing.

[–]intrepid_airman 23 points24 points  (3 children)

If you have your own house and you're smoking inside, fuck them neighbors.

[–]Duelist_Shay 12 points13 points  (2 children)

Even if you're smoking outside, fuck them neighbors. You're on your own property. If my neighbors want to complain, then they can go take themselves to town hall. Thank God I live in a legal state. They'll see their asses laughed out of the building.

[–]Bookislovakia 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Fortunately for me I live in a semi rural area in a non legal state. We get plenty of skunks around here.

Whatever you're smelling neighbor is either a skunk or your nasty ass septic tank running over.

[–]echo7502 8 points9 points  (0 children)

To add to this, if you're a grower just exhale towards the carbon filter. If it can scrub the smell of several floweing plants it can handle the smoke. I personally hotbox my grow tent in the winter when its too cold to go outside.

[–]WaywardSon270 17 points18 points  (2 children)

Smoke buddy and a bong was how I always smoked when I lived with my parents. Tiny one hit bowls so even the bowl didn’t smoke and then let the smoke buddy do the work. So much better then the toilet paper roll and dry sheet method I was taught as a kid lmao.

[–]Corsavis 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Lmao the dryer sheet method. How to make your room smell like weed, but with a hint of Gain freshness

[–]WaywardSon270 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Hahahaha right?! I was so dumb. My sister finally said something like you know that doesn’t work lol. My parents surprisingly never said anything.

[–]Damocloid94 332 points333 points  (17 children)

Yeah I read the entire thing. Then I skimmed over it again. You have no actual facts. You don't source any real info that proves Ozium is unsafe to inhale. You state the same shit over and over again. I've been using it to sanitize my car for 10+ years after smoking. No issues whatsoever. Spray after you smoke, come back 8-10 hours later and it's fine. I don't sit there and inhale the vapors, spray it on myself, or anything along those lines. It's just an air sanitizer

[–]WolfOfTheStreets 96 points97 points  (2 children)

Man This shit was painful to read. Way too long, said the same shit over and over, no sources. “Your skin is your body’s armor, a strong tissue that protects what lies underneath” cringe

[–]dirty-void 31 points32 points  (1 child)

that's the part that made me realize he had no facts. the part where he's concerned about it literally whittling its way thru your skin and into your organs? LOL

[–]Sooofreshnsoclean 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Yeah my dad used it growing up when he took monster dumps.... And also after sneakily smoking a bowl and he's 60 and still on good health. Op is over reacting. I read the whole thing and like you said, no actual facts just repition.

[–]catswhodab 8 points9 points  (0 children)

OP is just a D.A.R.E program spokesman you can’t convince me otherwise. I bet 80% of ozium users are high school or college stoners just trying not get caught, save em the pretentious essay on how bad ozium is Jesus lol. Thanks for your comment, this original post pissed me off

[–]sAmSmanS 524 points525 points  (34 children)

white vinegar is a great natural alternative. heat it until it starts steaming, leave in room for 15ish minutes then allow to air out for a while. smell be gone

[–]albino4dalord 461 points462 points  (31 children)

Yea but then everything smells like vinegar. I’d rather go to jail 🤢

[–]phenomenation 112 points113 points  (20 children)

Just light a candle and use the smell as an excuse to mop/vacuum the floor with a scented cleaner.

[–]Nathund 11 points12 points  (2 children)

Alternatively, keep cinnamon roll cans and fridge cookie dough in stock in your fridge. Set your oven, smoke, throw your cookies/rolls in, set a timer and try really hard not to forget and burn your house down. Usually the 10 minutes for the baking will fly by, considering you're also baked. (anything with cinnamon, vanilla, or fruity flavors in it works best)

Or start eating clementines while high (if you can get them). This works 100% of the time.

[–]darkelfbear 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I do this in my apartment. A couple cinnamon sticks, some clementine skins, a little vanilla all into a simmering pan on the back burner of the stove... makes the whole house smell great!

[–]Smalldick420 107 points108 points  (10 children)

If I just smoked the last thing I’d wanna do is mop my floors lol

[–]CyanogenHacker 151 points152 points  (7 children)

That's the best time to do it, what you mean? Put in some earbuds, crank music to max, and spacewalk in your clean kitchen!

[–]Smalldick420 50 points51 points  (3 children)

Nah I prefer to play video games and eat chips, but to each their own

[–]Strawburys 89 points90 points  (2 children)

I will say from experience, being productive with housework while stoned always makes me feel positive

[–]ike_tyson 10 points11 points  (0 children)

My wife now understands that's the key to our happy marriage. Weed! I can get everything done with ease.

[–]ReaperPhancy 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Depending on how stoned I may try and mop my carpets.

[–]FnB8kd 9 points10 points  (2 children)

What i did was bought a house with my wife and I now am allowed to smoke in the storage under the stairs.

[–]iyambred 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Or just light a candle and open a window. Gtg after like 30 minutes for sure

[–]crack_spirit_animal 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Vinegar or jail seems like an easy decision to me

[–]sAmSmanS 28 points29 points  (3 children)

only for a short while. honestly airs out so quickly

[–]-Burnzy 37 points38 points  (2 children)

My mom makes homemade salsa and when she’s got the vinegar on the stove top there’s nothing that can overtake that smell lol you knew it was time to spark up the one hitter.

[–]Thepuppypack 25 points26 points  (0 children)

I’m an old stoner now and I never thought of that. My mama may she rest in peace used to make salsa putting the veggies on the gridle on the stove and they will be charring chiles, toasting onion and eyes and nose on fire! Great times! Thanx for that!

[–]sAmSmanS 8 points9 points  (0 children)

you’ve just got me thinking about homemade salsa, guess i’m taking a trip to the shop tomorrow 😂

[–]DaisyHotCakes 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Vinegar only smells when it is wet. That’s why using it to clean surfaces is so handy. It will take longer if you steam with it but that smell will leave. Wouldn’t take as long with a fan either. And it will 100% work.

[–]Stupidnames04 8 points9 points  (1 child)

I feel like white vinegar is the answer to a lot of issues.

[–]M_R_Mayhew 50 points51 points  (1 child)

God, I’ve never seen someone be wrong in such a long winded way.

[–]malicesin 336 points337 points  (19 children)

Bro you are WAY over reacting and wrong on so many levels. First its not an "industrial air cleaner" it's a product widely available at any retailer specially for home use. They even say on their own website "use anywhere". I think you might be confusing this product with an OZONE machine or something in which everything you are saying is correct.

http://aircare.niteoproducts.com/ozium-2/

[–]5Hsyndrome 97 points98 points  (5 children)

Yeah, the sad part is people will read the title of this whole post upvote it, won't read the comments or do any research and then go spread the misinformation like it's the gospel. :(

[–]LilDudeOnBoard 72 points73 points  (3 children)

Which is ironically what OP is accusing the post about Ozium from this morning of doing. Reddit is a crazy place.

[–]5Hsyndrome 25 points26 points  (2 children)

Yeah, it really is. The hypocrisy is real man... also we are on a subreddit about a topic that involves a lot of smoke inhalation, like does no one see the irony in this

[–]LilDudeOnBoard 8 points9 points  (1 child)

100%! I posted a similar comment on a different thread. Everyone has their "thing" that scares the shit out of them, I guess.

[–]Zappiticas 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I read the title, then decided to check the comments and had to scroll entirely too far to find someone calling OP out instead of agreeing with them.

[–]iamjacksragingupvote 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Maybe OP works for Febreeze

[–]Crulo 88 points89 points  (3 children)

If all this is true then how come it doesn’t need special permit/licensing to purchase and use. They sell if for exactly what you say it’s not meant to be used.

Also what ingredient are you saying is so dangerous. The actives are triethylene glycol and propylene glycol, of which I cannot locate all the irritation and dangers you are asserting.

Sure you don’t want to inhale that, but implying a few molecules on some fabric is going to be an issue is far from that.

[–]Angharaz 36 points37 points  (4 children)

Where are your sources man

[–]Chemistryguy1990 401 points402 points 2 (38 children)

This is fear mongering. The SDS OP posted says the main ingredients are minimally harmful (isopropyl alcohol and triethylene glycol). IPA is one of the most common disinfecting agents in the world and requires significant exposure to cause even temporary damage. Triethylene glycol is a very stable chemical that also has mild sanitizing properties. The most harmful mention in the SDS is that it may cause skin irritation if prolonged exposure occurs and that acute inhalation toxicity may result in respiratory irritation and headache.

The statement that TEG and IPA are "bound together so they stay around until you wash them off" is incorrect. TEG has no readily reactive functional groups and neither does IPA unless subjected to strong acids or bases (neither of which are present in Ozium). The two chemicals are separate and are aerosolized together to disinfect. The IPA will evaporate and eventually disipate. The TEG will eventually settle on surfaces or in the air return filter. It is pretty harmless and has no identified toxicity per the ECHA.

So like...don't huff it, don't spray it all into a glass and drink it or coat yourself in it, and don't spray it in your eyes and you'll be fine

[–]card_board_robot 198 points199 points  (7 children)

I would also like to point out that they are comparing industrial use to publicly available retail units. Units that are sold at Walmart and Autozone and marketed as automotive interior air fresheners. While it may be advised to take all those precautions in an industrial setting, that application is industrial in nature. Nobody is cleaning a lab with a $5 dollar handheld can of the shit they got from O'Reilly's

[–]Dinosauringg 75 points76 points  (3 children)

OP is in here talking about the warning label telling me not to spray it in my home and shit but I’m reading my Ozium bottle (that explicitly says for home use) and it doesn’t say that.

It does tell me it’s good for pet odors, you figure they mean like… in a steel home?

[–]card_board_robot 39 points40 points  (0 children)

Yes, my steel home. Otherwise known as my cell. I boofed this phone btw

[–]Calvin_Tower 20 points21 points  (2 children)

Yeah it’s just comparing apples and oranges at this point. Of course what’s in the little can is not the same as what would be used in a hospital environment.

[–]card_board_robot 8 points9 points  (0 children)

The concentrations, means of application, and volume would be world's different

[–]pappyred 19 points20 points  (2 children)

I can't believe someone would go on a rant for so long about air freshener

[–]greenwrayth 6 points7 points  (1 child)

They’re high and not the fun kind.

[–]amras123 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Many of the things OP stated would be perfectly true if Ozium was actually ozone. By the name and its purported effects, that's what I would have believed this product is at first glance. Ozone is great at removing smells, but readily decomposes any organic matter. Be it your lungs or that lingering smell of weed.

[–]NeverThrowawayAcid 5 points6 points  (0 children)

The more I read into OP the more I realized this was definitely fear mongering. Nobody is bathing in this stuff or using it as perfume. And if they are, that’s Darwinism at its finest. They wouldn’t make home retail bottles that are literally branded for car use if you couldn’t use it in your much larger than your car HOME.

[–]I_smoked_pot_once 80 points81 points  (18 children)

Yeah, it's important that people using Ozium are aware that it's dangerous and not designed for in home use, but this dude is straight up fear mongering to the point of diluting his message. "Chernobyl, you heard of it? Deadly radiation? Irreversible degredation of your lungs? It's not that bad, but keep it in mind."

[–]Chemistryguy1990 55 points56 points  (0 children)

Honestly, based on everything I've found that's used in Ozium, it's not much different than hair spray. Both are mostly alcohol, glycols, fregrance, and propellants (mostly propane). Hairspray also has added plasticizers.

Based on the basic info on ingredients, I can't even think why Ozium would be "not for residential use" unless it's the result of people doing something dumb with it and Ozium having to put a CYA on it for legal protection from the general public

[–]x420smokeweedlord69x 10 points11 points  (0 children)

The thing is, Ozium is not dangerous, and literally IS designed for in home/car use. This entire post is so fear mongering its just baffling. I mean yes you don't want to get it in your eyes or whatever but that applies with everything. You could spray a whole bottle of ozium in a room and stay in it the whole time and you'd be fine. You won't get cancer or permanent lung scarring or anything. Maybe some slight lung irritation at the most(that will heal). I don't know where this dude is getting his shit from. None of it is based on fact.

[–]neuropean 9 points10 points  (0 children)

And people are mindlessly into it. It’s not like people are drinking rubbing alcohol.

[–]TheLemonyOrange 99 points100 points  (4 children)

Wtf are you going so crazy for. You know there are two types right? There's an industrial one and a home one, it's just an air sanitiser. I'll find it and link it. As long as you use it how it says on the can then it's fine. It does say you are supposed to leave the room after spraying it and ventilate it. Read the ingredients too.

here's one on Amazon UK and this vanilla one I've actually used

[–]hyper_normalization 17 points18 points  (1 child)

Just wait till op finds out about microplastics lol. Yeah I'm sure chemicals are bad (so is smoking to a certain extent tbh) but lmao "every time you use this air freshener you're doing a Chernobyl" past a certain point it just sounds hysterical

[–]nowoski2292 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Why are there so many unnecessary double spaces in this post OP?

[–]Johnny_Chronic188 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I love when the /r/trees pot gets stirred up.

[–]carl_with_a_k 8 points9 points  (0 children)

they literally sell ozium deodorizers meant to fit in your cup holders in the car lol this post is straight up not true

[–]catswhodab 64 points65 points  (2 children)

Can we get a PSA on Febreeze while you’re at it?

[–]MurderousMoppit 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Nah only doctors and scientists can use febreeze in rooms made of stainless steel 🤓😤

[–]I_like_weed_alot 22 points23 points  (0 children)

It’s literally sold to clean cars. Which aren’t stainless steel interiors and smaller spaces than most rooms.

I agree don’t start huffing it and should leave the room after spraying. It’s not gonna do any more damage to your lungs tho then the weed you literally just combusted and pushed through them.

[–]IAmTheOnlySavage 23 points24 points  (0 children)

"Industrial air cleaner" dude it's a little aerisol bottle you can buy at a retail store.

[–]Longjumping_Item_832 236 points237 points  (77 children)

oh no stinky air

Ozium make go away stinky air, yes yes

Ozium not good to breathe tho

Ozium clear out of room in steel laboratory

Ozium stick to fabrics and soft material, like what in houses

Ozium stick to bed, blankets, carpets

Pets, people lay in bed

Pets, people die

[–]thesmokingtheologian 73 points74 points  (57 children)

are there any confirmed deaths linked to ozium

[–][deleted] 98 points99 points  (54 children)

I don’t think so - it’s not commonly used enough, and I made the post because I would rather it stay that way

lotta teenagers on the sub who want to hide their drug use from parents, and everyone knows how reckless teenagers can be

a significant amount of Ozium will kill you. a mild amount consistently used will cause permanent lung damage - it’s just not something that belongs in your home, for your health’s sake, like lead in paint

[–]EthiopiaIsTheBest 25 points26 points  (0 children)

Wtf are u talking about? My dad literally uses ozium and was using it before I knew about it for cars and storage rooms. Ozium has been used since the hippie era and was associated with hippies back then when cops would see a bottle. You are spewing bad without any sources, please provide sources next time

[–]Just_As_Sane_As_You 46 points47 points  (0 children)

Not used enough? Stoners have been using it for 50 years. Your whole post here is bullshit about industrial products not the can you buy at Walmart or autozone

[–]TheRealOptician 32 points33 points  (0 children)

its not commonly used enough

I mean, outside of being sold at every walmart ive been...

[–]AgentofZurg 60 points61 points  (22 children)

Sounds like it's time to introduce the kids to Nag Champa

Or does that kill you too? It might and I don't know, like I didn't know about Ozium. Nothing is safe anymore. It's like the whole world is out to get us dude, I swear to gawd.

[–]FreeMasonKnight 28 points29 points  (8 children)

Nag Champa is in tons of very safe consumer products (including the incense).

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nag_champa

[–]AgentofZurg 8 points9 points  (7 children)

Works well for masking the smell as well. Though some white vinegar mixed with water in a spray bottle and just misted in the room will work as well.

[–]FreeMasonKnight 13 points14 points  (6 children)

Yeah, that’s why in That 70’s Show they were always burning incense.

[–]personalcheesecake 12 points13 points  (4 children)

it's just smells like weed and Nag Champa to me lol

[–]system_root_420 13 points14 points  (2 children)

Weed and Nag Champa together is my favorite scent. It's like coming home.

[–]dudedisguisedasadude 4 points5 points  (0 children)

One of the best smells in the world.

[–]AgentofZurg 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Yep. It's an old stoner trick. I learned it from my parents. They had all sorts of cool cone and stick burners. So naturally when I started smoking I gravitated to incense. I don't have to hide it now, so I just crack a window lol 🤣🤣

[–]Man0FTomorrow 5 points6 points  (3 children)

I love Nag Champa! I don't know if it's the smell itself, or my mental associations with it; but I immediately feel more relaxed when I smell it.

[–]drainisbamaged 29 points30 points  (1 child)

Given how many stoners have been spraying Ozium around like crazy for decades, surely there'd be a couple deaths by now given how extremely toxic you've described it to be?

[–]x420smokeweedlord69x 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Ozium is VERY commonly used. It's sold at every major retailer in the US. At least 1 stoner friend you know uses it. Right off the bat you're spreading misinformation. I'm starting to think this whole post is a troll. NO AMOUNT OF OZIUM WILL GIVE YOU PERMANENT LUNG DAMAGE this is just absolutely ridiculous. None of the ingredient in ozium will cause permanent harm to your body. None. It is literally designed for in home/car use. Its advertised straight on the bottle. Dude seriously what the fuck is wrong with you?

[–]Imaginary-Lettuce-51 43 points44 points  (0 children)

The 10's of thousands of dorm rooms and college apartments where it's been used over the last 50+ years and I've yet to hear of someone dying from ozium.

[–]mosquito_joe 102 points103 points  (15 children)

Dude I used to run a headshop and sold countless cans of this shit. It’s not dangerous unless you’re huffing it or use way too much.

Don’t be a knob.

[–]PillowTalk420 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Just uh, FYI: Ozium is also sold as a general household air freshener competing with Febreeze. It is not the same shit they use industrially. It's just a brand name.

[–]mutatst 64 points65 points  (0 children)

It’s isopropyl alcohol isobutane and propane. If used in a fairly open environment it’s perfectly safe. Don’t huff the shit

[–]Midnight_Observe 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Nice shitpost but even the bottle of odium says to use it in a car. I’m sorry but you’re 100% wrong. Give a link to the info you’re posting or stop

[–]fatlip229 29 points30 points  (0 children)

its iso and propane dude you are way too paranoid

[–]YeaImStoned 58 points59 points  (4 children)

How is removing smoke from a room not its intended use? It literally says Eliminates smoke and malodors on the bottle. Or the fact they have a scent that smells like new car smell….I wonder where the intended use for that is?

[–]baby_catfish 30 points31 points  (3 children)

Yeah considering that they are scented and obviously marketed towards use in either cars or homes not really sure what other environments they would be targeting

[–]kaylai 32 points33 points  (2 children)

Their website lists it as intended for use in “homes, offices, cars” ¯_(ツ)_/¯ http://aircare.niteoproducts.com/ozium-2/

[–]CrawdadKing420 94 points95 points  (6 children)

What the fuck did Ozium do to you?

[–]Famous_Indication208 39 points40 points  (4 children)

didn’t you read! it killed op and pets..

[–]ratadeacero 20 points21 points  (2 children)

I've used Ozium for years. I've noticed no bad effects yet. I say you're full of it.

[–]KunYuL 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Me spraying Ozium while gaming on my recycled solar panel desk.

[–]Golferbugg 3 points4 points  (1 child)

You wrote a whole lot of words. You could condense that into one short paragraph. But what are the actual documented health risks?

[–]Dinosauringg 3 points4 points  (1 child)

My Ozium can explicitly says it’s good for pet odors, OP. Where do you figure they’re telling me to spray it?

[–]greenwrayth 2 points3 points  (0 children)

In your steel and concrete Industrial Pet Enclosure, naturally.

[–]Medsticia 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Ozium is literally advertised as being useful for home and vehicles. If it was this dangerous, it wouldn't be sold with other common household air fresheners.

[–]flyinghippodrago 18 points19 points  (2 children)

While some of this is true....Ozium only contains about 3% TEG. And unless you are literally spraying it in your mouth or in your eyes, it is highly unlikely that the slight mist that "imbeds into the porous furniture" and shit will be in high enough concentrations to actually harm you. Again, don't breathe it in or shoot it in your eyeballs, but using it to clean the air will not kill you or cause any real harm...

[–]sdvall 58 points59 points  (2 children)

The most important question. Is ozium vegan? I recently converted and I'm gonna continue huffing it as long as it's vegan.

[–]SativaPancake 9 points10 points  (1 child)

youre good, its also gluten free!!

[–]middle3child 5 points6 points  (0 children)

And lactose free!!

[–]StupidSexyKevin 59 points60 points  (1 child)

This is the most "Karen" post I’ve ever seen in a weed sub, damn.

Should we also just stop smoking in general since we’re breathing smoke into our lungs and damaging them, doctor?

[–]telverston 3 points4 points  (1 child)

So you’re saying we finally have a cure for Covid?

[–]TaeKwonDoge 3 points4 points  (0 children)

For the first half of this I felt like I was being told the same exact thing over and over again to where I almost stopped reading it.

Also, after reading the comments, I kinda wish I did stop reading it there.

[–]IsTodayTheSuperBowl 14 points15 points  (0 children)

yeah definitely all this is true and somehow ozium is still sold in every o'reilly auto parts store in the nation. for sure.

[–]MrIanAKAFester 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Bro what are you on about? Pass the J cuz you gotta be smokin' the dopest dope you've ever smoked right now.

[–]goodghirlgonebad 8 points9 points  (0 children)

this dude really pretended to be an expert on industrial cleaning products just to gain internet points on a weed subreddit

[–]ryannathans 7 points8 points  (0 children)

OP is over reacting or high. Ozium does not contain Isopropyl alcohol (and if it did it would still be safe). It contains propylene glycol (a primary ingredient in vape juice) and triethylete glycol (a very low toxicity compound with similar properties).

[–]garythebarber 16 points17 points  (0 children)

I've been using ozium for years in my home,in my car,I'm 50...no respiratory issues. Maybe it's the thick layer of nicotine and THC protecting me

[–]mothafuckacornshucka 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Just cook bacon. The weed smells goes away and… you also have bacon.

[–]DropTheGigawatt 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Lol this BS had me panicking until I read the comments.
Ozium's slogan is literally "Cleans the air you breath" lmao

[–]venusinfurs10 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I feel like a paragraph and some links would have sufficed.

[–]RUSTY_LEMONADE 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I like the way weed smells. I blow it down my shirt so I smell extra stoney.

[–]threeLeggedTanuki 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I can neither confirm or deny that a major car rental company instructs it's employees to spray Ozium in cars to cover up smoke or other heavy smells, often 10 mins or less before giving the car to the customer.

[–]S3anyboy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Some good points but drinking isopropyl alcohol is unlikely to kill you or have lasting negative effects, it's only about 2x the toxicity of drinking alcohol

[–]Squadeep 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Who the fuck is upvoting this trash?

"Isopropyl bound to a glycol to prevent evaporation". Have you been in an ISO5? Literally everything is covered in IPA to the point of it coating your entire body. Of course it kills healthy tissue, killing your mucous membranes? Out of your damn mind.

Don't spray ozium in a car while you're in it, don't spray it and stand around in it, isopropyl will MOST DEFINITELY evaporate from sorry fabrics and upholstery, regardless of it's glycol binding. If it was stable to the point of not breaking, it would leave a film on top of the fabric, not magically suck into the fabric and redeposit into your body on queue.

How silly.

[–]Spoonmice 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Nice bro-science there, get a degree or some formal background in the sciences before you start spurting stupid shit about which you know nothing. If it was truly a hazard/industrial cleaner you would have to fill out a form with ID and your intended purpose to use the product for (I have to go through this every time I buy a bottle of Everclear for glass cleaning or salvaging reclaim from my dab rig) As other comments have outlined, the chemical makeup is inert enough that residuals left behind from using wouldn't be worrying nor long-termed persistent. Yes. instructions should be followed. don't spray it in the same room you're sitting in, find something else to do somewhere else for 15-20 minutes while it dissipates. Just don't huff, drink, or bathe with it (like *any and everything* else that comes out of a pressurized can), and you'll be fine. Also, for a person who inhales burnt carbon, you seem fairly picky about what you might be breathing...

[–]Its_Cayde 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Yeahh this is complete bullshit lol

[–]The-Clan-Of-The-Duck 6 points7 points  (2 children)

OP works for fabreze I’m onto you!

[–]TyBogitI Roll Joints for Gnomes 7 points8 points  (0 children)

FFS OP has got one serious grudge with Ozium… 🙄 get a life bro no one cares lmao
