Ten top tips for travel:
1. Make a pee plan
Book early so you can grab aisle seats near a toilet on the plane. If you’re planning a road-trip, schedule your stops to make use of public toilets. Download a toilet finder app to your cellphone so you can always have the peace of mind of knowing how far you are from the nearest loo.
2. Doctor’s orders
Discuss your travel plans with your doctor well in advance of your departure date so you can get your vaccinations or medications organised. Keep your medications in their original packaging and get a doctor’s note for anything that might attract the attention of customs officials.
3. Get covered
Travel insurance is always a smart move, but if you’re recovering from surgery or facing other health issues it’s even more important. Make sure you declare any pre-existing conditions or you may not be covered.
4. Keep watered
When you’re worried about bladder leakage it’s tempting to cut back on fluids, but it’s especially important to keep drinking lots of water if you’re travelling in a hot climate. Plane travel is also very dehydrating. If you’re worried about the quality of the drinking water but don’t want to buy disposable plastic bottles that contribute to landfill, take a refillable bottle and fill it at a safe source.
5. Watch what you eat
Avoid foods and drinks that are likely to irritate your bladder and exacerbate leakage. Limit coffee, tea, chocolate, soft drinks, alcohol and acidic and spicy foods as much as you can without ruining your holiday!
6. Look after number two
Constipation can contribute to bladder leakage, so eat lots of fibre, fruits and vegetables to keep things moving along. Lack of exercise and also contribute to constipation, so try to walk around the plane as much as possible on long journeys, and build a daily walk into your travel schedule.
7. Stock up
Make sure you pack enough Confitex underwear to see you through. Because you can wash them just like ordinary undies you don’t have to take a fresh pair for every day of the trip – just take the same number of pairs as you’d take of normal undies, and wash them when you reach your destination. If you need to order more from our website, please allow up to five working days for delivery to make sure they arrive before you head off on your holiday.
8. Keep your powder dry
Pop a sachet of washing powder in your suitcase, as well as a plastic bag for dirty linen. Confitex underwear can be hand or machine washed and dried on a line or in a dryer.
9. Have a B-plan
If you’re on a long-haul flight, pack a spare pair of Confitex and a ziplock plastic bag in your hand luggage in case you need to change half-way through the journey or during a stopover. They’re not designed as a replacement for a toilet stop, but they will provide comfort and security between visits.
10. Go wild!
The super-absorbent fabric technology that makes Confitex underwear work so well was first developed to allow cross-country skiers to keep going longer between toilet stops. So with the comfort and security of Confitex on board, you can get out there and enjoy all those experiences you’ve been missing. Happy holidays!
