London, Oct 3 : A new way of avoiding embarrassing situations has been discovered in an underwear fabric that absorbs all smells.
The underwear, which has been developed in the US, is said to neutralise smelly gases and prevent awkward moments, the Sun reported.
The material works by being inserted into a pair of pants, which then traps any pongs.
The "gas neutralisers" are made from carbon fabric and two self-adhesive strips secure them in place.
The fabric, called Subtle Butt, does not silence any noise that might accompany any whiff.
