Do you suffer from flatulence issues caused by IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), gastritis, Crohn’s disease, dyspepsia, and colitis as well as food intolerance? Or do you just pass gas – a lot? Well, there may be a line of clothing for you.
There are now jeans that help filter your flatulence – that means passing gas. It could not come at a more opportune time as Thanksgiving and other holidays centered around the largest retail season.
The human body is prone to passing flatulence of up to 14 times per day for the average person and these ‘flatulence filtering’ jeans are an attempt by a UK company, Shreddies, known for making flatulence-free garments, says it’s products give “increased protection and more freedom to enter social situations.”
The British company pledges to provide double protection through ‘flatulence filtering underwear’ if when worn with Shreddies jeans, act as a double layer against smelly gas. “First of all, these were amazing at stopping fart smells. I personally tested them, dropping several SBD’s around my family, and got no reaction! I couldn’t even smell it myself. And trust me, I normally have very smelly gas,” said a user in his product review on Amazon.
How to use the garments?
“To avoid flatulence escaping around the filter we recommend that you stand with your legs together and try to let your wind out slowly,” the Shreddies website instructs (emphasis theirs).
“When sitting, keep your knees together so that flatulence escapes through the carbon panel.” As long as the jeans fit you exactly, the filter should absorb all the foul odors leaking out of your body.
How does the flatulence filtering jeans filter the smelly gas?
According to Shreddies, the “garments feature an activated carbon back panel that absorbs all flatulence odors. Due to its highly porous nature, the odor vapors become trapped and neutralized by the cloth, which is then reactivated by simply washing the garment.” The carbon black panel is made of activated charcoal which is found in air filters and purifiers that are well known for absorbing odors and gases.
The activated charcoal jeans are available for both men and women in many different sizes. Shreddies ‘flatulence underwear’ is already being sold on Amazon, and the jeans are likely to be available soon. The jeans cost about $130 in the United States.
