If a word conforms to a special rule, I call it a Refreshing Word™.

Use the following examples below to find the rule.

Hungrier Hungriest
Refreshing Reforming
Noon Undeniable
Unsung Poop
Deadly Deathly
Barbie Nincompoop

And here is a CSV version:

Hungrier, Hungriest
Refreshing, Reforming
Noon, Undeniable
Unsung, Poop
Deadly, Deathly
Barbie, Nincompoop

Before you ask, it's not the fact that all the Refreshing Words™ have a pair of letters that are 2 characters apart; that was just there to throw you off. Think inside the box.

    $\begingroup$ Just add all of your examples now. Don't try to make your puzzles interactive. $\endgroup$ – Deusovi Sep 14 '16 at 19:47

    $\begingroup$ (Also, I highly recommend adding more examples. These puzzles only work because there's typically a lot of very different data to work with.) $\endgroup$ – Deusovi Sep 14 '16 at 19:50

An Unrefreshing Word

Is one that contains, potentially anagrammed, a verb describing an action pertaining to bodily fluids


Hungriest -> Shit, Reforming -> Gore, Undeniable->Bleed, Poop->Poop, Deathly->Eat, Nincompoop->Poop

A Refreshing Word, is then any word that is not Unrefeshing

A big thank you to Maria Deleva in the chat, coming up with Hungriest and Undeniable.
