Discreet Disposal of Incontinence Products

Heaven Scent disposal bags
How do you get rid of your used incontinence products? You have to focus on sanitation when it comes to disposing of your used incontinence products as well and looking for a way to mask the smell of the products. Depending upon the type of incontinence product you use (reusable or disposable) you will have different ways of managing them and disposing of them.

The adult diapers that need to be tossed in the garbage need to go into a disposable bag that includes a PH smell to prevent an odor from occurring: http://caregiverpartnership.com/search/disposal/. This will prevent you from dealing with walking out to the garbage outside every single time you need to change out your urinary incontinence products. These little bags are discrete and can be taken with you as you go out in public and may have an issue with incontinence. Having the little bags will make managing your condition much easier and much less embarrassing to deal with.

If you are disposing of your adult diapers at home you should still consider the bags but you also need to focus on an extra layer of protection with sanitation and making sure your bathroom does not become a pool for germs. Take the garbage out at least 1-2 times a week so it doesn’t become filled with too many adult diapers. It is also a smart idea to have some sanitary wipes and lotion in the bathroom that you can use to clean up after yourself and to sterilize the garbage can once you dispose of the incontinence underwear. This will prevent odors, bacteria, and other germs from growing in this environment. Keep the bathroom well ventilated as it can reduce odors caused from used incontinence products.

Determining which type of incontinence products you want to use is up to your comfort level and also what you can afford. It is a smart idea to try out both washable and disposable incontinence pants to determine which ones are ideal for your needs: http://caregiverpartnership.com/landing/samples/. When you are trying to find a quality product you need to shop for one that gives you back your dignity. Look for a product that fits comfortably and isn’t too tight on the legs or waist but is strong enough to hold in any amount of urine that is released. The products on the market now are much more affordable than they used to be and they are also quite discrete. Many people prefer to shop online as you do have a larger selection to choose from.

One thing to consider when you are dealing with reusable incontinence products is to understand how to wash them and what to do with them once they are soiled:

http://www.caregiverpartnership.com/landing/incontinence/. The reusable incontinence products are very similar to that of your regular underwear so it is not a hard adjustment to wear them. Once they are soiled you will need to change your pad or your incontinence underwear as the urine left on the skin will lead to a skin rash and other health problems. Use some sanitary wipes to cleanse the genitals and help to prevent serious health problems from happening. The washable products should be cleaned immediately instead of being left in your laundry basket for days. This can become a harbor for germs, especially if it is in the bathroom where steam and a lot of moisture is present. It is a good idea to toss them into the sink in hot water and to let them soak for a little while and then you can focus on scrubbing them with some soap to properly clean them.
