Wrap the Pipe in Long, Thick Socks
Do you have an old pair of long and thick socks sitting around? Or two socks each from a different pair you couldn’t find? It’s time to give them a second life! Fabrics and textiles hold onto smoke and odor. It goes without saying to ensure they are clean.
Form a thick roll or a pocket with both socks in a way you are able to place your pipe in between. Try this if you’re not sure how to fold it properly. First, place both socks on a flat surface, with one sock on top of the other. Then, grab one cuff and flip it inside out while tucking both socks about halfway into the cuff. The socks should form an improvised bag where the pipe goes in.
The fabric should absorb most of the stale odor from the used pipe.
Keep The Pipe Outdoors
Place your piece outside the window, in such a way the pipe doesn’t fall easily. This method won’t eliminate the odor completely, but it will be an immense help, allowing much of the scent to dissipate into the atmosphere. Afterwards the smell will only be detectable up close.

Grab a zip-lock bag or any resealable plastic bag and put a dryer sheet in, then wrap your piece making a roll and drop it in the bag. Reseal the bag letting just a little air inside. These dryer sheets leave a strong fresh aroma helping to disguise the stale smell of cannabis.
