When you’re hungry, the smell of cooking food is amazing. On the flip side, bad odors can make you retch. Whether you’re a new parent or a cleaner by trade, DeathPlugs are designed to protect you from horrible smells.

DeathPlugs filter out bad odors
  • What is the best way to keep your home smelling fresh? Open the windows when possible, and use an air purifier to remove bad odors.
  • Why do horrible smells make you gag? It’s essentially a form of protection. Your nose is telling your brain not to eat whatever you can smell.
  • How do you block out bad smells? You can either wear a full respirator, or just use DeathPlugs. These innovative nose plugs filter out horrible smells.

It’s easy to forget that humans were made for the wild. We feel like cultured beings, yet our physiology gives away our primal roots. Take the gag reflex as an example. This is essentially a form of self-protection, where your brain tells your body to avoid rotten meat and toxic gases. Unfortunately, this reflex isn’t always so helpful in the modern world. If you have to deal with bad smells at work, or simply change nappies at home, you may struggle to overcome the urge to retch. DeathPlugs offer a neat solution — these comfortable nose plugs provide an effective barrier against bad odors.

How do nose plugs work?

Just as you can insert ear plugs to block loud noises, nose plugs allow you to avoid unpleasant smells. Of course, you need to be able to breath through your nose. So instead of blocking up your nostrils, nose plugs filter the air.

DeathPlugs are some of the most effective nose plugs we have seen. Designed for first responders, these tiny nasal inserts will protect you from the foulest smells. They are made from activated charcoal foam, which is soft enough to remain comfortable all day.

DeathPlugs are pretty discreet

You can use these nose plugs to soak up any kind of odor. For instance, you can take them to a music festival to avoid the portable toilet smell. Cleaners can use them while tackling dirty jobs, and you can even use DeathPlugs to block bad city air.

Block horrible smells with DeathPlugs

Each pack of DeathPlugs contains three plugs. The slimline design and dark foam makes them visually discreet — ideal when you’re at work. In addition, the two sides of each plug are connected by a half-inch thick band. This makes it easier to remove the plugs, and harder to lose them.

The charcoal foam is flexible and soft

The charcoal foam is flexible enough to adapt to your nose shape. Inside, tiny pores capture and absorb particles in the air. As a result, you won’t smell a thing.

“Guard against sad, smelly situations with our innovative nose filter and stay focused on the job. DeathPlugs block unpleasant odors utilizing breathable, activated charcoal-infused foam. These easy-to-use, disposable nasal plugs provide an effective solution to life’s most unpleasant odors.” — DeathPlugs on Indiegogo

What we ❤️

While many products focus on more glamorous topics, DeathPlugs help you deal with the smelly side of everyday life. They are effective, comfortable, affordable, and discreet.

A little wasteful?

DeathPlugs are designed to be used only once. This is good for hygiene, but the cost of daily use would soon add up. We would love to see a reusable version at some point.
