Incontinence is a fact that many adults have to face. Many a times it develops with old age, but many young men and women also suffer from incontinence.Many people need to wear adult diapers in order to manager their incontinence, but adult diapers are not always very reliable at blocking unwanted smells from escaping. So here are a few guidelines for managing the 'aroma' of soiled adult diapers.
Managing At Home:
In order to keep your house smelling fresh, with no evidence at all that there might be a 'leakage' problem, the following guidelines will help immensely. Don't throw away all your used newspapers, but stock them up. If you don't subscribe to a newspaper, this is a incontinence is a great time to begin. In addition to the newspaper, make sure you have lots of small garbage bags and a diaper pail.
This is what you're going to do: Every time you have a dirty diaper, immediately wrap it up tightly within one of the old newspapers. The newspaper will absorb much of the smell, creating a barrier for any aromas. Next, place the wrapped up newspaper parcel into one of the small garbage bags and seal it tightly. The garbage bag will create another barrier for the smell. Finally, throw the bag into the pail and keep the lid closed. For good measure, you may also line the inside of the pail with a scented trash bag, or spray the inside of the pail with your favorite air freshener. Scented bleach, Lysol, or pine-sol will also do the trick.
Following the above guidelines will help you to ensure that your always smells great and doesn't arouse any undesirable suspicions.
Managing On the Move:
But what happens when you're not in the comfort of your home and you're sitting in a meeting, or worse, riding on the subway?
In this case, the best that you can do is to try and obscure the stench. Don't worry, there is an easy, cost-effective way to manage this. Try and get a hold of the following: a small, travel-size bottle of spritzer spray and some perfumed essential oils. The essential oils can usually be found at your local pharmacy, or online. Men may have to look a bit harder to find 'masculine' fragrances, but they are available.
Next, once you have the apparatus, drop 1-3 drops of the essential oils into your spritzer spray bottle and fill it with water. Keep this bottle within easy reach a knapsack or laptop bag - wherever you go. Once you are all dressed up and ready, grab your spritzer spray bottle and squirt your adult diaper a few times. This will keep you safe most of the day. If during the course of a hot day, you notice that you might not be smelling so fresh, just grab your spritzer bottle again and squirt it a few more times.
This method should keep you safe while you're braving the great outdoors.
