Top Tips

  1. I had embarrassing moments due to clothing. Climbing down from a loft ladder at work. My shirt snagged and pulled up to reveal the top of my incontinence pad and plastic pants above the waist of my trousers in plain view of the client. On another occasion bending down to tie my shoe in a shop and heard a parson remark on my plastic pants and nappy where my short had ridden up at the back. Choose shirts that are long in the body to tuck in well, onesies have press-stud crotch to prevent ride up.

  3. Cut old towels up into small squares and take one for each day with you when travelling. You can then thoroughly clean yourself and throw them away.

  5. I suffer from Crohn's disease and have the occasional'accident'. I have access to a food vacuum sealing machine and put a few medicated wipes, toilet paper, spare underpants in small plastic bags and then vacuum seal the lot inside the usual sleeving. The resultant package is about 6" x 4" x 0.5" and slips inside a coat pocket. I also keep one in the car

  7. When washing reusable garments like swim nappies or undergarments, use inexpensive Borax to occasionally soak a clean garment, to remove any lingering smell. Then rewash. Swimming undergarments made with laminated waterproof outer fabrics should never be put in the dryer, as the fabric could delaminate with heat.
