For Alex, the founder of DeathPlugs, life could get a little smelly.

As a police deputy, he tended to countless crime scenes with his sniffer dog by his side. While his dog was specially trained to detect inconspicuous things (such as small, illicit electronics), Alex and his fellow officers didn’t find it so simple to navigate particularly reeking crime scenes. To say it was challenging would be an understatement, even without having a dog’s heightened sense of smell. The sometimes stomach-churning reality was that unpleasant scents were an inescapable part of Alex’s time in law enforcement. Most officers simply put up with the odors or employed temporary remedies to mask them, such as applying VapoRub under the nostrils, dotting essential oils on the inside of a face mask, or the trusty old tissue-up-the-nose.

HOW THEY WORK

Still, the consensus among officers wasn’t difficult to reach: nasty odors were making it harder to do their jobs.

Alex knew there had to be a simpler solution, and one that could work for everyone. He came up with the concept of foam nose plugs that could be easily inserted and removed for one-time use, perfect for workers on the go. To set them apart from other nose plugs, Alex made the innovative decision to create an entirely new kind of foam, infused with activated charcoal to create an extra element of filtration. Thus, Filter Foam was born.

After hatching this idea, dozens of possibilities came to mind: not only could Death Plugs be used for law enforcement, they could be used for a wide assortment of “dirty jobs”—everything from EMTs to garbage collectors to new parents. A world of potential opened up, and the idea was in full swing.
