Tech reporter tests out fart-filtering 'Shreddies' underwear

The conclusion: "Success! The Shreddies seem to do what they say.”

Dec. 4 (UPI) -- As part of his job as tech reporter for The Star, Raju Mudhar agreed to test out Shreddies, a new brand of underwear the company claims can cancel out flatulence.

The Shreddies motto is ‘Fart with confidence’ according to their website, which says the "patented filter underwear removes odours through the use of a thin and flexible carbon cloth."

According to Mudhar, Shreddies get the job done.

"I wore Shreddies for three days around town and they seemed to work pretty well, although I wasn’t particularly gassy. Sure, I let a couple fly -- including one attempt on an elevator at work, which has mirrored walls, so I watched all the faces for familiar signs of putrid smell recognition, but no joy. Still, I needed to enlist another set of nostrils."

In the interest of science, Mudhar also enlisted the help of his wife.

“Back under the sheets in the Dutch oven, I let loose a few. One loud one and a couple of quieter follow-ups. Speaking scientifically, the problem with fart testing is that each one is a random occurrence, so you never know exactly what their stink level is going to be. There is no control group to compare it with. My wife inhales a big whiff and says: ‘I don’t smell anything.’ Success! The Shreddies seem to do what they say.”

UK-based Shreddies says their flatulence-filtering underwear "are a proven medical solution to flatulence," though they likely mean technological solution.
