I think we have all been in a situation where we need to break wind but there are a lot of people around. We have been taught that it is impolite to do it since we were young children but sometimes, we just can’t make it to the bathroom. The only thing we can do is to let it squeak by and hope that it is silent.
One of the problems with doing this is the fact that people know something happened because the stink is easy to detect. One company has seen this difficulty we all experience in life and decided to do something about it.
Studies have shown that people fart every day and on average, 14 times daily. A company called Shreddies has come up with the solution to all of our problems, which are bluejeans that filter flatulence.
How do these jeans work?
This is the same company that also offers both flatulence filtering underwear and pajamas. The jeans work in much the same way and help you to stay fresh because they “feature an activated carbon back panel that absorbs all flatulence odors,” according to their website.
“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.”
For those who simply can’t live without these specialty pants, you will have to bring your wallet because they cost about $170 per pair.
At the moment, you can only purchase the jeans in a dark wash color but you can get them in sizes between 4-16 for women and 28-40 inch waist per men. The pants legs include short, medium and tall.
Shreddies has made these specialty pants available for everyone but they are especially for those who have flatulence problems due to gastritis, IBS, Crohn’s disease, colitis, and similar conditions. They can also be of assistance to those who suffer from food intolerance and digestive disorders.
“In many cases, simply not having to worry about flatulence can help improve a person’s condition,” the website adds.
“Anxiety can create chemical changes in your body [and] can affect your digestive system, exacerbating a person’s condition.”
Shreddies feels that these jeans will work on their own but you may want to add some of their underwear to create a “double layer of protection.” Doing so can also increase your confidence.
When you consider the motto of the company, ‘fart with confidence’, it’s easy to tell exactly what they are shooting for. You may not be able to let ‘er rip with pride but at least you can do so without sweating about the noxious cloud.
