Fart-Filtering Underwear Masks Stink of Passing Gas
Having problems with stinky farts? I must confess, I am caught up in the fitness hype and drink a lot of protein shakes. At time my farts smell like a rotten egg, or two.
No worry though, Shreddies, a British line of fart-filtering underwear has a solution for this problem. Shreddies use a thin and flexible carbon cloth called Zortex to filter out the smell. Zortex is known to be used in chemical warfare suits and from the looks of it, is an appropriate use after one of my protein induced flatulent.
Here is how Shreddies explains how the underwear works.
Shreddies flatulence filtering underwear features a ‘Zorflex’ activated carbon back panel that absorbs all flatulence odours. Due to its highly porous nature, the odour vapours become trapped and neutralised by the cloth, which is then reactivated by simply washing the garment. Shreddies weaves a carbon cloth called Zorflex into its rear panel. Betts-Clarke says it can squash the smell of "200 times the average flatulence emission." (Shreddies apparently hasn't met my Aunt Edna.)
Shreddies is doing big business these days; one of its main markets is the United States.
"Americans are making up the majority of our sales at the moment," Shreddies spokeswoman Ianthe Betts-Clarke told The Huffington Post.
After becoming internet hype the past week sales have increased over 400%.
The underwear comes in boxer briefs and support boxers for men (starting at ~$40) and briefs and high waisted briefs for women (~$30).
Make sure to go get yourself a pair of Shreddies. You know you want one, I do!
