Now, 'pong-proof' innerwear
Get news updates:What's this?
October 07, 2008

A man's perfect innerwear has long been a woman's fantasy. Well, here's some good news, ladies -- a 'pong-proof' underwear has finally been developed.

Yes, scientists in the United States have produced an underwear fabric which they claim can absorb all smells -- the
material is inserted into a pair of pants and traps any pongs, British tabloid 'The Sun' reported.

In fact, the "gas neutralisers", which are made from carbon fabric and two self-adhesive strips and secure them in place, prevent embarrassing smells, according to its developers.

However, the fabric, called Subtle Butt, does not silence any noise that might accompany any whiff.
