You Can Now Buy Cushions That Stop Farts From Stinking


Game changer.

There’s nothing worse than discreetly letting out a fart in polite company but it then going on to stink the whole joint out and literally everyone in the place knowing that it was you. It’s one of the most embarrassing situations that I think you could ever find yourself in really isn’t it?

Well, this might be a thing of the past if you equip your flat/house with these new cushions that apparently have the ability to stop your farts from stinking. The company is called Shreddies and they explain that the fusion has the ability to filter the fart particles out of the air.

They explain how their technology works in relation to one of their other other clothing products:

Shreddies flatulence filtering garments feature an 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.

Previous research published in The American Journal of Gastroenterology found activated carbon underwear to be the most effective method of removing flatulence odours.

The garments have gone through rigorous testing, and findings from research by De Montfort University were presented at the 86th Textile Institute World Conference; 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’.

The fabric remains effective for the life of the garment (2 – 3 years) providing the care instructions are followed correctly. The Shreddies motto is ‘fart with confidence’ and our garments ensure just that.

I mean they certainly talk a good game but the only way we’re gonna find out is if we actually submit these things to extensive testing. The fact is though that they cost £28 a pop so I dunno if I wanna spend that just to check them out because they don’t really look like they’re the most stylish cushions out there do they? If anyone wants to send us any free ones though be my guest. Sure everyone in the office would thank you as well.
