Top Tips

  1. With an elderly relative who became night time incontinent with heavy bed wetting disposable pads and nappies were tried but finally settled on terry nappies with disposable booster well covered by plastic pants as the best solution. Top tip- soak terry nappies in pre-wash and wash on hot to freshen and prevent odours

  3. If you are incontinent in pads 24/7 personal hygiene is essential to avoid unwanted odours. Complete removal of pubic hair using either creams or by shaving to a smooth bare finish allows easy cleansing with a warm flannel for pad changes. It is much easier to apply creams to prevent nappy rash without tangling with unwanted hair. You should feel fresh and clean with an attractive appearance leading to flattering comments from partners.

  5. When wearing wet incontinence pads or plastic pants and nappies due to incontinence it is easy to develop a lingering urine smell that might not be noticeable to the individual. Frequent washing and hygiene are most important. Particularly for less able and older persons removal of all pubic hair with depilatory cream or shaving to a smooth bare finish allows easy cleaning with a warm flannel and easy application of nappy rash creams without the problem caused by pubic hair tangling.

  7. Don’t keep used pads indoors. They alwys smell and the smell gets worse with time. Double bagging makes little difference. And, once established the smell lingers. The effort to take each used pad immediately outside is well worth it.
