And according to medical experts, there are three reasons why your farts smell worse or are more potent in the shower….
1. Because you’re naked. When you pass gas with your clothes on, your pants work as a barrier and help filter some of the smell. You don’t get that filter in the shower.
2. Because the shower is an enclosed space. Normally, your flatulence spreads out to an entire room, or if you’re outside, into all of nature. In the shower, the gas is trapped so you notice it way more. It’s also why you never want to pass gas in an elevator.
3. The steam improves your sense of smell. The steam from a hot shower makes your nostrils more sensitive. So even though your gas is not actually smellier in the shower, it can smell TWICE as bad to your sensitive nostrils.
