If you prefer to invest in reusable products that you don’t have to continue buying, you may want to check out reusable undergarments. This product is one of the most comfortable options out there. You’ll find that incontinence underwear is soft and stretchy, so you’ll never feel restricted when wearing them. They’re designed with a leak-proof lining that provides you with superior protection. These undergarments are machine washable but hand washing is recommended to keep them in excellent condition.
Depending on your needs, you might be better off with incontinence briefs. These are designed with a top sheet, a distribution layer, and an absorbent core. The top sheet is porous, so any liquid that leaks through is fully absorbed in the core. The distribution layer moves liquid away from your skin and down to the core, which is where stays trapped in place. This means you can feel confident that your skin will stay dry and clean.
Another popular option you can consider is disposable incontinence pads. This is the best choice for users who do not want to deal with washing and reusing their adult incontinence supplies. You’ll still have maximum leak protection and you can throw the product away when you’re done using it. If budget is a concern when choosing a product, this is a cost-effective option. You can even buy your incontinence underpads in bulk to save more money.
If you’d prefer to reuse your product and don’t mind washing them, you may find washable incontinence pads to be a good fit for your needs. You won’t have to worry about suddenly running out of the product. All you have to do is wash it and reuse it, which makes it a sensible option for saving both time and money. Not to mention that it’s also an environmentally-friendly choice. Gently scrub your washable incontinence pads with a mild detergent until clean. You may also soak them for a few hours or overnight in water and vinegar.
Catheters can be used to drain the bladder of urine. Most often used in hospitals, catheters can also be used at home or even on the go. All catheters are made from different materials like rubber, plastic, or silicone. The main types of catheters include: indwelling, external, and short-term. Indwelling catheters reside in the bladder. Also known as Foley catheters, this kind of catheter can be used for short or long periods of time. External catheters are commonly called condom catheters. Because these catheters don't actually go inside the body, they tend to have a lower chance of infection and are generally more comfortable. Short term catheters are used intermittently and only when the bladder needs to emptied. This kind of catheter does not stay inserted.
