The anti-flatulence bed sheets might be about to end the issue of your partner stinking up the bed while slumbering, which many couples are likely to welcome
It’s an invention that leaves you thinking – why didn’t this exist already?
The age-old adage “better out than in” doesn’t always feel like the right thing to do – especially when you’re in bed.
But one ingenious firm might be about to end the issue of your partner farting excessively in bed – and it could potentially save relationships.
One of the big issues when sharing a bed is excessive noises and smells, especially when it happens constantly.
But this anti-wind bedding could be the product for you – from firm Shreddies, who previously launched anti-flatulence underwear.
According to the company, the duvet cover and undersheet have carbon panels built in to trap smelly gas, in a bid to help those farting – and the unlucky ones sleeping next to them.
A description of the duvet says: “The Flatulence Filtering Duvet Cover includes an inbuilt carbon panel to trap flatulence gases before they escape through your duvet.
“You can simply insert your own Duvet into the cover and your gas will be discreetly filtered all night long.
“Using the same technology found in our award-winning underwear, the porous carbon attracts and traps flatulence odours and is simply reactivated when washed.”
The firm reckons the average person farts up to 20 times every night — though we think some would say their partners are well above average.
Spokeswoman Rebecca Jones said: “Many experience excessive flatulence at night. This is because when you’re lying down the gas in your body ‘pools’ inside your colon rather than coming out a little at a time as it does in the day.
“Throughout the night this gas is released and can cause an unsettled night’s sleep and an unpleasant odour.”
And the new product seems to be a hit, as she added: “The bedding is selling very well and we’re really pleased with initial sales.”
The company said: “We know from speaking to our customers that bad flatulence at night can drive spouses from their marital bed.”
