Flatulence happens when you least expect it; no one will know with Shreddies underwear!
As much as you want to believe it or you tell others we don’t do it – we do. Women pass wind and according to Shreddies; an average person breaks wind 14 times a day. You may have gotten away with it from time to time, but on the odd occasion, one may be a little more prominent and happens to linger around in the office – and there is no dog to blame it on. So how do you even go about letting one loose without anyone noticing?! Well, believe it or not; Shreddies have created the lifesaving underwear you need – flatulence filtering underwear. In other words, “fart pants” – yep, they are a real thing!
Can’t get your head around flatulence filtering underwear? Here’s the science to prove it
Have you ever seen soldiers in the desert, dressed from head to toe in clothing and thought “how do they work in that heat”? Inside their clothing is Zorflex activated carbon cloth; it provides the most effective protection that is sweat resistant, repellent against liquid agents, antimicrobial, lightweight, breathable, flame retardant and last but certainly not least, extremely comfortable. Zorflex prevents and thoroughly disposes the spreading or off-gassing of harmful agents.
What’s Zorflex got to do with Shreddies underwear? Well this carbon cloth is at the back and what is sandwiched between the fabrics of your flatulence filtering underwear. The carbon panelling is able to absorb a huge volume of organic or inorganic molecules. So if you’re thinking that your bottom burp may be a weapon of mass destruction; there’s no need to worry! Shreddies underwear has got you covered – literally!
The American Journal of Gastroenterology (fancy word for medicine that deals with stomach and intestine disorders) found that a pair of activated carbon underwear is the most effective design of filtering flatulence odours. Part of Shreddies journey was going through severe testing conducted by De Montfort University (yep – right here in the UK) and their research showed that the fabric “was found to remove sulphide and ethyl mercaptan so effectively that it can filter odours 200 times the strength of the average flatus emission”. In other words, however bad your gas may be; it’s got nothing on Shreddies underwear!
Who needs Shreddies?
Well, seen as we all break wind from time to time; Shreddies underwear are perfect for everyone! We’ve all experienced painful constipation and various illnesses that make our tummies take a turn for the worse; Shreddies will help you to hide your PDPs (post-digestive particulates)! However, there’s a serious reason behind the creation of Shreddies; there are many people who suffer with excessive flatulence so much that it can be a huge burden on their social lives.
If you suffer with any of the following you may experience excessive flatulence:
- Food intolerances – coeliac, lactose
- Colitis – inflammation of the inner lining of the colon
- Crohn’s disease – long-term condition that causes inflammation of the lining of the digestive system
- Dyspepsia – indigestion
- Gastritis – inflammation of the stomach lining
- IBS – irritable bowel syndrome
If you associate with any of the above ailments then you may understand the difficulties of involving yourself in social situations. Anxious or paranoid feelings may occur which only then create chemical changes which can have an effect on your digestive system; and if digestive problems and excessive flatulence is already the case – chemical changes in your digestive system is the last thing you want to happen when you’re surrounded with friends! Shreddies understand, and that’s why they provide the added assurance and comfort that you need in all situation and because they look exactly like your very own ordinary knickers, no one will ever know. After all Shreddies motto is “fart with confidence”!
So whatever the situation is; the first date with that super cute guy, a board meeting with the chief executive or if you’re waiting in the queue at the bank, and you need to let one go - you can! Better out than in and Shreddies have always got your back…side.
How to get the most out of your Shreddies underwear
although it may seem like Shreddies are a god-send (which they kind of are), they need you to work with them too so you can get the most out of your flatulence filtering underwear. When gas is passed through the carbon filter all odours will be neutralised, so you need to take into consideration of your posture when you feel like one is brewing – this means no standing with your legs apart! When you feel like one is creeping upon you; your legs must be together. This ensures that no gas can escape from the gaps of the waistband or leg openings – which means you MUST choose the correct sizing to the your knickers are close to your skin.
We understand, some may catch you off guard, but if you can prevent that from happening, try and let the wind escape slowly so it definitely goes through the carbon filter to be neutralised.
The carbon filter has a life of 2- 3 years if the Shreddies underwear is taken care of properly; so you must only was your underwear with soda crystals at 40˚ or by hand. Dry them on a medium heat or over a medium heated radiator – never, ever bleach or put in the tumble dryer.
