HOW DO THEY WORK?

Shreddies flatulence filtering garments feature an activated carbon back panel that absorbs all flatulence odours. Due to its highly porous nature, the gas becomes 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 providing the care instructions are followed correctly. The Shreddies motto is ‘Fart with confidence’ and our garments ensure just that.
