Be honest now - do either you or your partner ever find yourselves farting up a storm in the dead of night? If the answer is yes (and don't worry, your secret's safe with us) then we may just have the product for you.

Shreddies, the company behind the game-changing anti-flatulence underwear has recently announced its latest innovation, and it's one that's sure to be a hit for the whole family- anti-wind bedding.

Shreddies' carbon undersheet and duvet cover filter have carbon panels built in to trap the stench of foul gas to help people with bad wind - and those they sleep next to.

According to the company, The Flatulence Filtering Duvet Cover includes an inbuilt carbon panel to trap flatulence gases before they escape through your duvet. All you need to do is simply insert your own duvet into the cover and your gas will be discreetly filtered all night long.

The lining absorbs bad smells and allows the stink to come out in the wash.

"Both products use the same technology found in our award winning underwear, the highly porous carbon acts as an adsorbent which attracts and traps flatulence odours and is simply reactivated when washed." said a spokesperson for the company.

"These brand new products are the latest in a long line of successful odour eliminating products that Shreddies brand is known for including their patented underwear, undershorts, cushions and odour eliminating bags."

According to Shreddies, the average person passes gas 14 to 20 times per day, although many people experience excessive flatulence at night when they're lying down.

This is because after dark the gas 'pools' up inside the colon, coming out in powerful bursts, rather than coming out a little at a time as it does in the day.

The company said: "Throughout the night this gas is released and can cause an unsettled night's sleep and an unpleasant odour.

"We know from speaking to our customers that bad flatulence at night can drive spouses from their marital bed."

Shreddies was founded in 2009 by Paul O'Leary, who developed and patented the flatulence filtering underwear in Cotes, Leicestershire.
