It seems as though there’s an invention to solve every problem nowadays – but we reckon this one could potentially be a lifesaver for some couples out there.
If you’re looking for a fart-free night, or at least just free of that unpleasant smell, then you’ll no doubt be thrilled to hear that Shreddies – the company behind the game-changing anti-flatulence underwear – has recently announced its latest innovation.
Bedding that claims to be “flatulence filtering”.
Shreddies’ carbon undersheet and duvet cover filter have carbon panels built in to trap the foul fart smell, which will not only help people with bad wind, but those they sleep next to as well.
According to the company, The Flatulence Filtering Duvet Cover – which will set you back £180 – includes an inbuilt carbon panel to trap flatulence gases before they escape through your duvet, and all you need to do to reap the benefits of the innovation is simply insert your own duvet into the cover and your gas will be discreetly filtered all night long.
A spokesperson for Shreddies revealed that both products “use the same technology found in our award winning underwear” and that “the highly porous carbon acts as an adsorbent which attracts and traps flatulence odours and is simply reactivated when washed”.
They continued: “These brand new products are the latest in a long line of successful odour eliminating products that the Shreddies brand is known for.”
So, why might flatulence-filtering be the key to a good night’s sleep then?
Well, according to Shreddies, while the average person passes gas 14 to 20 times per day, many people experience excessive flatulence at night when they’re lying down due to the gas ‘pools’ inside the colon coming out in powerful bursts after dark, rather than little by little throughout the day.
And, of course, Shreddies also understands from speaking to its customers that “bad flatulence at night can drive spouses from their marital bed”.
Brand new market to ‘bring a new lease of life to Chinatown’ in Manchester
A brand new market is set to launch in Manchester this weekend, promising to inject life into the city centre’s Chinatown district.
The Market’s Dragon Market will be taking over the Faulkner Street car park with a range of street food traders, plus loads of local artists and makers.
The market has been created in partnership with Manchester City Council to ‘bring a new lease of life to Chinatown‘.
The mastermind behind Dragon Market is April Kennedy, founder of Vanoffee (and creator of those viral coffee-filled doughnuts), who says it will remind people that ‘Chinatown isn’t to be forgotten about’.
It’s hoped that the project will rejuvenate the area and increase footfall, with an attractive line-up of food and drink stalls as well as other local businesses.
Already lined up for the launch event this weekend will be Birchwood Pizza, Vanoffee, Sunrise Patisserie (with mountains of pastel de natas), The Vakery vegan bakes, and a street food stall specialising in Thai food.
There’ll also be local brands like Wreaths by Florals by Ayla, Erica Pham Art, Double T’s Rum, MellowApricotStudio, and loads more.
There’ll even be a mobile barbershop on site thanks to JiGGi.
And the Dragon Market will be fully licensed, with boozy hot chocolates and mulled wines aplenty.
Announcing the news, they wrote: “We’re bringing a new lease of life to Chinatown with the Dragon Market! Get ready for exclusive traders serving up delicious food ranging from wood-fired pizzas to Thai, with plenty more to get your taste buds going.
“The Dragon Market also features local artists, candlemakers, brewers, distillers, barbers and baristas!
“Set up by April Kennedy, founder of Vanoffee and Manchester City Council, this market is here to remind you Chinatown isn’t to be forgotten about.”
Tesco has slashed the price of one-litre bottles of Baileys by more than 50%
Tesco has slashed the price of one-litre bottles of Baileys by more than 50%, and they’re now available to get your hands on for a limited time only.
With December officially here, and the festive season nearing closer by the day, most UK supermarkets are rolling out deals left, right, and centre to help shoppers save a few pennies during ‘the most wonderful time of the year’ as the cost of living crisis continues – and it seems like Tesco is absolutely no different.
That’s because the retailer has decided to knock a whopping £12 off the regular price of one-litre bottles of one of the best-loved Christmas tipples.
Fans of the classic Irish cream liqueur drink will probably want to run not walk to their nearest Tesco to stock up on Baileys ready for the big day to arrive, as big bottles of the festive favourite have been reduced from £22 right down to just £10, and are now available to fill your basket with.
But… there’s a bit of a catch (isn’t there always?)
Not only is the over half-price offer only available for a very limited time, and due to expire at the end of next week, but shoppers will only be able to buy the one-litre bottles at the impressive £10 price if they’re Tesco Clubcard customers.
You were probably expecting that’d be the case, right? The supermarket – which is well-known for the savings it offers via is loyalty card scheme all year round – is giving Clubcard users up until Monday 11 December to nip to their nearest branch or head online to the Tesco website and buy as many bottles of Bailey’s as they fancy.
As part of the supermarket’s commitment to “keep prices low” until the end of the year, stuffing, roast potatoes, cranberry sauce, and even tin foil have all seen their prices slashed as the retailer aims to help those struggling to cover costs.
