An infomercial for the Better Marriage Blanket has caused quite a stink on YouTube. The blanket's maker says it saves marriages by concealing flatulence — no more blaming the dog. Its layer of activated carbon fabric is the same technology's used in the military to protect against chemical weapons.

LYNN NEARY, Host:

U: It's the problem in the marriage bed that no one like to talk about. Maybe that's why they call it silent but deadly.

NEARY: The Better Marriage Blanket has caused quite a stink on YouTube. But don't underestimate its layer of activated carbon fabric. That technology's used in the military to protect against chemical weapons.

It's MORNING EDITION.
