To be fed up of DH making the bedroom stink.

I actually got up in the middle of the night and used room spray. He doesn't smell but my god his farts do. WIBU to ask him to sleep downstairs?

Open the window ?

Open a window

You sleep downstairs, he can't help farting in his sleep. And maybe you can both consider your diets.

MrsLouisTheroux Sun 05-Jan-14 08:31:39

grin Window is open! No minesapint I won't be sleeping downstairs because of his problem! Why do I need to reconsider my diet?

MrsLouisTheroux Sun 05-Jan-14 08:33:06

Oh mrsmango !! Perfect!

BabCNesbitt Sun 05-Jan-14 08:35:27

You have my sympathies - DH's farts are sulphurous. I keep a box of matches in the bedroom to light to mask the smell. The room hasn't yet exploded.

fluffyraggies Sun 05-Jan-14 08:35:29

Is there anything specific that he eats that makes it worse OP?

My DH is pretty windy but they only smell very bad if he's been drinking beer or eating allot of leafy veg.

Maybe he could try cutting back on certain foods one at a time and see if it helps? Wheat? Alcohol?

Toecheese Sun 05-Jan-14 08:36:21

Does he have problems with a specific food? Gluten?

CrewElla Sun 05-Jan-14 08:38:03

Google fart blanket, it's a thing.

MrsLouisTheroux Sun 05-Jan-14 08:39:18

I haven't looked into the problem properly TBH! You are right about certain food though. He's been eating loads of cheese though...
BabCN grin

Never let him eat a whole box of onion bhajis. (Bitter experience.)

MrsLouisTheroux Sun 05-Jan-14 08:43:19

grin picnic!

fluffyraggies Sun 05-Jan-14 08:44:25

MrsLouis I bet it's the cheese! Ask him to cut out dairy in general for a couple of days & see if it gets better.

A friend of mine is lactose intolerant. Her boyfriend was notorious for his horrible farts. She made him cut out dairy (sort of my default) & it's like a miracle cure as the horrendous farts have significantly reduced!

feel your pain sad very annoying.

Spermysextowel Sun 05-Jan-14 09:10:04

Maybe it's because I live with teenage boys, but I really don't get fussed about farts. We eat lots of pulses & green veg, so we will suffer the consequences.

MrsLouisTheroux Sun 05-Jan-14 09:39:55

Yankee hmm cheese... We have a fridge full left over from NY! I was hoping he'd hoover it up!

MrsLouisTheroux Sun 05-Jan-14 09:43:25

sperm What is it with men and farts though? Obviously everyone does it but there are a lot of women in my family and none of us let it out. The men do though sad

Spermysextowel Sun 05-Jan-14 09:46:02

Does lactose intolerant mean that dairy foodstuffs make you gassy or is there more to it?

Spermysextowel Sun 05-Jan-14 09:50:45

Mrs I'm not sure. As my mother gets older she's more prone to doing the sneeze/laugh/fart thing & still says 'pardon my bottom'.

meditrina Sun 05-Jan-14 09:53:10

Change in diet.

We visited PILs for a few days over Christmas, and for the first 48 hours back the smell of what DH produced was unbearable. Even he noticed.

LineRunner Sun 05-Jan-14 09:56:22

Do you think those models knew they were modelling fart pants?

They look so smug, I think they hadn't got a clue.

After a meal out with Dsis BIL will almost compete with ds1
Much juvenile blaming each other, or me & Dsis.
