Blow Up Balloons To Clear Up Stank Odors

Fresh Blow is a product designed to replace boring mundane air fresheners with something fun and energetic! You blow up a balloon thru an aromatic capsule and release it. As the balloon whizzes around frantically, fresh aromatics fill your room.

There are other ways to use Fresh Blow too (seriously that name has me thinking of other things). When you need an instant pick me up, twist open the capsule and take a direct hit, getting a full whiff to awaken your senses. There’s even a time release option by letting the balloon slowly deflate with the capsule still attached ensuring freshness throughout the day along with that slight whistle that sounds like farts.

    it´s a cool idea… and where can i buy the fresh blow? Do you have a link for a shop?

    • Moonhwan Lee says:

      Hello, this product is not on the market. I have only 5 pieces made by myselft. Thanks anyway.

  • Ekove says:

    AWESOME. Simple idea, yet it’s fun and hopefully functional.

  • richie says:

    How tragic. What is IN this capsule anyway? What kind of organic/inorganic chemicals are those poor deluded folk inhaling that could be better than fresh air? This kind of useless design is wasteful of limited resources, time & money.

    • ryan says:

      uh… you blow through the capsule into the balloon and let it go so it fills the room with the air freshener. they aren’t inhaling directly from the capsule. i’m sure its a similar compound to any other air freshening device you buy at the store. you could even argue that it saves resources by letting you reuse the balloon, limiting the amount of waste. very clever idea.

        Actually, the article does say that this is supposed to be used as a huffer or popper as well.

        "There are other ways to use Fresh Blow too (seriously that name has me thinking of other things). When you need an instant pick me up, twist open the capsule and take a direct hit, getting a full whiff to awaken your senses."

        Perhaps YOU ALL are the ones who need to read the entire post, as Richie did.

      This is what happens when you reply before reading and only looking at the pretty pictures. Why are design enthusiasts so fucking angry here at yanko? Jesus.

    • webby says:

      Absolutely crazy. how could you tell if someone was using them as inhalers? Did you wiki it? Use a dictionary? Use Google Images? Thought not. You shouldn't come to conclusions with that. It's very clever, I agree with Ryan. And 'deluded'? I think someone should think again about who is being deluded and 'tragically' wasting money. Another smarter thing to do is just to ask "What is in this capsule?" politely. I know someone out there is trying to be a smarty pants.

    • i totally agree with you on this richie.

    • i totally agree with you on this richie.

    Great idea!! Wow!!!!!!

  • isaac says:

    i hate hippies. this is rad

  • Brian says:

    Oh boy a bigger carbon footprint! Doesn’t seem to be a better concept than what is currently available and you have more waste. And you have to go find the balloon when you are done!

    • Anonymous says:

      This creates much less waste than the aerosol cans that most air fresheners use. Also, it seems to me that you can re-use both the filter and the balloon.

    • webby says:

      'Oh boy'? Is finding a balloon in your own house actually breaking your leg? More waste? Think again, 'smartie'.

  • Eric says:

    I like that it doesn’t require electricity to heat up the scent. But really? People will do this once or twice and get sick of it. Especially since you will have to do it a lot to linger. I have a puppy, I wouldn’t put this back in my mouth after it hit the floor… I do think it would sell as an impulse sell on counters though 😉

  • Lamah says:

    Be careful to keep continuous pressure on the balloon as you blow it up, or you’ll get a mouthful of horrible air freshener..

    >When you need an instant pick me up, twist open the capsule and take a direct hit, getting a full whiff to awaken your senses.

    Why not just go huff a can of spray paint and cut out the middleman?

  • pepinthewicked says:

    And whoopie cushions that smell like REAL farts!

  • Trips says:

    If the air’s coming from a balloon, wouldn’t it just smell like fruity rubber?

  • Emily says:

    So we have aromatic farts now~~

  • ben says:

    i think its great but would be more apt to buy if it had a small compressor to fill the balloon or something… i don’t want my mouth anywhere near whatever is in that thing

  • maichi says:

    balloons are fun! …but can’t you just blow the capsule directly into the air?

  • Ersin says:

    Woowww;

    Good idea,i like that!

  • dingobully says:

    If I’m going to inhale anything out of a balloon it’s not going to be air freshener.

    • Eric says:

      Lol, N2O maybe? It does kind of look like that’s where this idea originated from actually! Haha!

  • xxblahxx says:

    mmm peach!

  • Jeffry says:

    Seriously, people have nothing to do, I can’t believe they actually put the effort in developing this thing. Who’s gonna want to blow their lungs out for a few minutes to get a balloon sized ( air capacity ) Air in the house. And who said fresh doesn’t have a clue of what he’s talking about. Can you imagine the freshness and humidity being blown out of someone’s mouth. Please

    • richie says:

      I’m with you Jeffry…and it’s a very long time since I’ve been called a hippy..thanks whoever it was: probably one of the designers. Days gone by we used to call designers of THIS sort “Shinybums” as all they were good for was polishing seats. They’re obviously still breeding somewhere. Worse than hippys! as they take up space, breathe oxygen and dont produce fresh vegetables. Then they go out and BUY crap like this – bet they dont even read what’s in it from the label. Hopefully its life-shortening/carcinogenic.
      But GOOD designers take heart…we know you’re out there. I’m one myself.

  • Dan says:

    Nice. Where can I get?

  • nick says:

    …or you could just open the window. What is up with all these air fresheners anyway?

  • linda says:

    “twist open the capsule and take a direct hit” ?
    Sounds like drugs to me… what’s in those things?

    If it’s the same chemicals that are in regular air fresheners, most of them are fossil fuel based carcinogens, neuro-toxins, endocrine disrupting (read mess with your sperm, reproduction and other bodily funtions) unregulated toxic waste.
