Don’t lie and try to pretend you’re not sorta excited about (or a least bemused by) a new line of underwear that filters out farts. Yep, you heard me right. These fart-proof undies are made for both men and women (and apparently in really cute styles) by Shreddies Ltd. based in Leicestershire, England.
The thin and flexible cloth, which contains Zorflex® — the same activated carbon material used in chemical warfare suits — is reactivated simply by washing the pants.
Shreddies say through extensive testing the carbon cloth could filter odors 200 times the strength of the average flatus emission.
A spokesperson for Shreddies says:
Although Shreddies has got cheeky with the new campaign, to many people they still remain very much a healthcare product and have helped so many cope with conditions such as IBS, Crohn’s and food intolerances. But the bottom line is that Shreddies are for everyone, after all, it’s something we all do.
Flatulence seriously affects millions of people every day and since 2008 Shreddies has been helping those affected increase their quality of life. We have found the answer to help alleviate the most obvious symptom of flatulence…the odors.
Kind of like the book Everyone Poops ... everyone farts.
Except for me, of course!
