Let Her Rip: Shreddies Underwear Will Filter Out Your Farts

Shreddies

Do you fart a lot? If you do, you’ve probably already mastered the after-fart poker face where you just sit still with a stony expression and continue doing whatever it is you’re doing, so as to deflect suspicion that you are, indeed, the farter. If you don’t, well, you probably don’t like beans that much.

Frequent farters will be happy to hear that fart-filtering underwear now exists. It’s called Shreddies, and it has an embedded layer of Zorflex, a thin and flexible carbon cloth that’s behind the underwear’s flatulence filtering action.

Shreddies flatulence filtering underwear features a ‘Zorflex’ activated carbon back panel that absorbs all flatulence odours. Due to its highly porous nature, the odour vapours become trapped and neutralised by the cloth, which is then reactivated by simply washing the garment.

Shreddies is available for men (as boxer briefs and support boxers) starting at $40 and for women (as briefs and high-waisted briefs) starting at $30.

3D-Printed Blizzident Toothbrush Cleans Your Pearly Whites in Six Seconds

Blizzident

If you don’t want to end up with dentures at a not-so-ripe young age, then you’d better brush your teeth and floss like your dentist recommended. I’m not one to judge, though, because I know that feeling all too well: when you find yourself lying in bed after a long day, and you just can’t seem to bring yourself to get up and head to the bathroom so you can brush your teeth before turning in.

Then alone came Blizzident. Now this 3D printed toothbrush won’t let you brush your teeth in bed, but it will certainly change how you brush your teeth. It’s a mouthpiece-like brush that’s customized to fit your mouth (and yours alone), so all you have to do is pop it in, make a couple of chewing and biting motions for six seconds, and you’re done.

Poo-pourri Traps Crappy Smells in the Bathroom

Poo-Pourrie

Consider yourself lucky and somewhat extraordinary if you don’t stink up the entire bathroom after you do a number two. Poop is poop, and it’s going to stink, regardless of whose bottom it came out of.

Coming to the rescue is Poo-pourri, a spray that promises to neutralize the odors that might linger around your bowl, even after you’ve flushed. It’s not like most other sprays which try to cover up the smell with a stronger fragrance. Rather, it stops the smells from escaping the bowl in the first place.

Shower Head Prompts People to Take Shorter Showers, Saves Water

Uji Shower

How long is a typical shower for you? Seven minutes is apparently ideal. At least, that’s the figure that Uji’s inventors are working with. But first thing’s first, what’s Uzi? It’s a shower head with a built-in lighting system. The light turns from green to red in a span of seven minutes, which basically signals the person bathing to wrap things up (and wrap himself or herself in a towel!)

Nihilist Toothpaste: No Flavor, No Color, Nothing–Just Paste

Nihilist Toothpaste

Toothpaste is available in all sorts of flavors, colors, and varieties these days. Heck, they’re not just limited to paste, either, because liquid and gel toothpastes exist now. However, if you’re not a fan of blue, green, or tri-colored toothpastes that sometimes comes with flecks of “cooling crystals” or whitening strips, then you might want to check out Accoutrements’ Nihilist toothpaste.

It’s toothpaste the way toothpaste should be. It’s got no flavor, no color, no thing–just plain old white paste in minimalist packaging.

Stick ‘Em Magnetic Towels: Feel Free to Stick ‘Em Up

Magnetic Towel

Towels. You need them but you might not necessarily have space for them in your kitchen. Getting some of those stick-on plastic hooks is one option, but imagine what a pain it’s going to be if you remove them and peel off a layer of pain with it. You could  hang them around your refrigerator handles, but then you have to be prepared to pick them up from the floor a lot because that’s where they’ll usually be after a few people walk past the fridge and inadvertently brush past it, causing it to slide to the floor.

And then there’s the Stick ‘Em Magnetic Towels, which seems like the most logical solution of the bunch.

Morninghead Gets Rid of Bed Head in Seconds

Morninghead

You know how your hair sticks up in bunches and random angles when you get out of bed? It’s called bed head and it’s pretty unsightly, especially if you’re heading out in a few and don’t have the time to wash your hair again. Most people just turn on the tap and put their heads under it as a quick fix. Others sprinkle water all over their crowns in an attempt to pat down stray strands.

But there’s an easier way: just get the Morninghead.

Dry Hands Lets You Wash Then Dry Your Hands At Once For Added Convenience

Combining both and turning this everyday task into a one-step action is the Dry Hand, which is a faucet and dryer in one.
