Have you ever been in a situation when you really needed to pass gas, but in the middle of a date or a meeting? Worried that the bad smell would ruin the moment?
A Japanese company just may have solved this problem.
Seiren recently introduced a clever solution: deodorant underwear, made to eliminate unwanted odors.
Nami Yoshida, spokesperson for Seiren, said, “It took us a few years to develop the first deodorant pants that are comfortable enough to wear in daily life, but efficient in quickly eliminating strong smells. At first we thought about selling them to those who require nursing care and to hospitals, but to our surprise, lots of ordinary people, [such as] businessmen who are in positions that require them to see people on a daily basis, bought them.”
Seiren even has other products for the same purpose — products ranging from socks that will stop your feet from smelling to shirts that will cover up those sweaty armpits.
Now the challenge is to learn how to pass gas silently, or this clever new invention won’t be completely effective in dispelling embarrassment.
