A British company has invented a gadget which allows the user to fart without leaving a foul smell behind – a miracle for many.
Brainchild Paul O’Leary, the owner of Shreddies Ltd, designed the banana-shaped Carbonana which is made up of a carbon lining that catches odours but allows the owner to feel relaxed as no one else has to know if they are experiencing any flatulence issues.
In order to filter out the odours from flatulence, users need to place the Carbonana between their buttocks.
This very company also brought out fart-filtering underpants, in a bid to help people who are suffering from “extreme flatulence issues caused by IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), gastritis, Crohn’s disease, dyspepsia, colitis, as well as food intolerances and many other bowel and digestive disorders”.
According to Business Live, hundreds of thousands of the undergarments have been sold. Which shows that people really do worry about the foul smells they can’t help but make!
The Carbonana was created as O’Leary’s father shared with his son that he had a rather unpleasant flight experience on his way to New York.
His father arrived at the airport wearing the original fart-filtering underwear and fart-filtering jeans – but it confused airport scanners, which lead to a rather awkward scenario.
He had the option of changing in and out of his fart-filtering underpants but this was extremely inconvenient for him. So Paul O’Leary felt that it was obvious to come up with a new product so that this problem would never occur again. Thus, the Carbonana was born.
The product’s official description says: “New for 2020 the Carbonana is an innovative product. Designed with air travel in mind it offers you discreet protection when you need it most. The Carbonana can also be worn anywhere like the car, the office or public transport. Helping our customers avoid potential embarrassment clearing security scanners, the Carbonana can be placed in the hand luggage trays and worn once you’ve cleared security. The banana shape of the product is designed to sit between the buttocks and absorb gasses before they escape your underwear.”
Over the past few years, Shreddies have helped countless peoples’ lives easier with their tummy-related issues.
The Carbonana is now available to purchase for £19 ($24) and comes in a jersey fabric, which can be washed, reused and is available in black or nude colour. Click here to order yours.
