Here’s technology we can all get behind for our occasionally smelly behinds. Shreddies is a pair of underwear that promises to filter out farts. Seriously, it’s supposed kill your fart’s smell and be able to neutralise odours up to 200 times the stinky strength of the average fart. So even if you have a particularly foul brand of flatulence, Shreddies can let you fart wherever you want without feeling like you’ve dropped a bomb. Freedom farts.
Shreddies uses a thin and flexible carbon cloth called Zorflex in its underwear. Zorflex is apparently used in chemical warfare suits and to be honest, that’s appropriate given the intensity of some people’s farts. Here’s how Shreddies explains its magic:
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.
The underwear comes in boxer briefs and support boxers for men (starting at about $40) and briefs and high waisted briefs for women ($30). Fart for you. Fart for me. Fart for all. Fart forever. [Shreddies via NY Daily News]
