Top Tips

  1. 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.

  3. Elderly persons diagnosed with Alzeimers may be bedwetters with night time incontinence, and unless closely supervised may forget to use waterproof incontinence wear at bed time. Useful tip- leave their pads and plastic pants with their night clothes ready on the bed so they cannot be missed. Alternatively a stack of pads and plastic pants in plain view by the bedside will act as reminder that they need to be well padded and help prevent unwanted accidents.

  5. After a while washable incontinence products can develop a slight residual odour after laundering, particularly terry nappies and plastic pants. It is worth taking advantage a warm summer days by pegging them outside on the washing line. After a day blowing in the breeze your nappies and waterproof pants will be lovely and fresh again. Top tip; peg plastic waterproof pants in a shaded position out of direct sunlight to avoid UV sunlight on plastic fabric.

  9. Plastic pants can be slightly crinkly when first put on until they soften with body heat. Try keeping your plastic pants in the airing cupboard. They may also last longer this way with reduced risk of splits and tears.
