Stink Pellets are a joke product that presumably releases an unpleasant odour. They were sold in Diagon Alley in Gambol and Japes Wizarding Joke Shop, and in Hogsmeade, most likely at Zonko's Joke Shop. They are not tolerated by Argus Filch. Early in the 1993-1994 school year, Fred Weasley was running low on these and wanted to get some in Hogsmeade.[1] Their usage is similar to that of a Dungbomb, another item not tolerated by the Hogwarts caretaker.

In 1996, as the tyranny of Dolores Umbridge reached a new level with her becoming Headmistress, the students of Hogwarts revolted en masse, and Dungbombs and Stink Pellets were dropped in the halls with such frequency that it became the new fashion for students to use the Bubble-Head Charm just to ensure that they had a supply of fresh, clean air.[2]
