- Fecal staining produced by a violent passage of wind.
Windsmears are produced when airborne particals of feces (or "winnit dust") becomes trapped within cloth, usually underwear but frequently bedsheets.
A windsmear is marked by its resemblance to, say, the spray of an aerosol. They are usually dry to the touch.
Not to be confused with skidmarks.
