ROXBURY, N.Y. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Marriage can stink – unless couples have a fart-absorbing blanket.

Science teacher Frank Bibbo has created “The Better Marriage Blanket,” a comforter made of activated carbon fabric that solves the agelong problem of gas among couples in bed.

Bibbo got the idea for the blanket when he was out hunting in a suit made of similar materials and realized he could pass gas undetected.

He created the prototype more than 15 years ago but the world is just now getting wind of it.

Bibbo says the blanket doesn’t mask the stench of farts, it completely absorbs it – no matter how strong your brand.

He says it catches both little and big farts, though folks shouldn’t “get too forceful.” If flatulence is extremely strong, he advises users to bunch it up closer around themselves.

Bibbo says the comforter is machine-washable, though it’ll work for about four years straight without a single rinse.

Occasionally sticking it in the dryer or sun for 15 minutes should leave it fresh as a daisy.
