There's A Fart Vacuum Here To Save Us All From 'The Stench Of Flatulence'

There's a societal issue that revolves around the desire to hide or diminish certain natural bodily functions out of fear of them being perceived as unclean. However, there are companies out there looking to challenge that, removing the unsavory aspects of those functions so we no longer need to feel ashamed.

At least, that's the goal for FartVac, a simple stench-reducing vacuum that's hit the market.

A product you never knew you needed has now arrived.

Or maybe you did know you needed it, but either way, the relief is here.

FartVac bills itself as "the world's first fart vacuum and filtering system" according to their store page, and it supposedly "reduces the stench of flatulence."

How does it do this, you ask?

With a specialized filtering system that uses activated carbon technology.

Not sure if that tech is credible? They explain more on their website, which tells readers, "NASA uses activated carbon for odour and impurification filtration, so we know the technology is sound."

They seemingly have the numbers down, too.

"Typically, farts are trapped by our clothing and don't escape the fibres for about five seconds," they explain. "This is the time when FartVac can remove and filter them."

It's a simple-looking device, a hand pump with two tubes extending from either side.

There aren't explicit instructions on how to use it, but it seems self-explanatory. Just in case, though, they do include a disclaimer:

"Do not insert any part of this product in your body. External use only."

Not to mention their mission seems pretty sound.

"It is time to align norms and manners to what is healthy! By taking responsibility and trying to reduce your fart smells, you can now fart without shame--no more pain while fighting nature and holding in gas. Join the proud movement to embrace your body's natural functions."

A noble goal for a rather silly product, which they acknowledge by saying it makes a great gag gift.

Either way, it's a hit! Currently sold out on Amazon, the FartVac is helping people across the world keep things smelling a little fresher.
