Skillfully Managing The ...ahem...aroma... In Adult Diapers When The Hot Spell Arrives
If you live with bowel control issues, you know first hand the mortification that odor can cause.
Periodically life happens and you can't get away to change your adult diaper. You're at the mall, on public transit, you're at work, or maybe you're at school and you've forgotten your extra supplies, or you can't get away to change on the grounds that there's no place to change. The event is worse if it is a hot, maybe even sticky, summer day, and odors are intensified.
The humiliation as people around you begin to smell the air, and you're keeping your eyes pointed forward praying, wishing, that nobody grasps that it's you. Or, alternatively, you are pretending because you're sniffing the air too - trying to divert the search away from you.
As a rule people don't choose to sit in a crummy adult diaper - but when life happens and you can't get to a bathroom - what can you do to camouflage the... ahem... tang?
When you are desperate, you'll make use of anything to try and conceal the smells exuding from the adult diaper. Search out a gas station and stock up on those air freshners and wear them within your adult diaper. There is a game plan for you!
All joking aside it doesn't have to be that way...the resolution is easier than you anticipate - and quite wallet friendly! A travel sized spritzer container filled with water and a drop or two of essential oils. Hold-up - men - before we kiss goodbye your attention -- not all essential oils are floral smelling. So, utilizing essential oils won't make you 'smell like a girl'.
You will need a regular and a small (purse-sized), spray bottle, essential oils and water. Essential oils can be bought as a single oil or blended oils. Many big retail stores and your community pharmacy carry these oils and they can also easily be found online. Many malls have specialty stores stocking only soaps and oils. You can find "feminine" oils (floral scents like Geranium, Lavendar, Jasmine) or masculine (earthscents like Sandalwood, Oakmoss, Cedarwood, Black Pepper, most citrus scents, etc).
Though some of the more hunk scents aren't necessarily readily obtainable (like Black Pepper) at your community commercial stores, if you look for masculine blends - you will find that many blends incorporate several essential oils into a blend.
Take your spray bottles, drop in1-3 drops of the essential oil (3 drops for the standard spray bottle, 1 drop for the small (pocket-sized) spray bottle - then fill with water.
Before going out for the day - take your regular spray bottle and casually spray your adult diaper - one quick spray will do it. Pack the small (pocket-sized) spray bottle in your supply bag, in effortless reach. This will assist to conceal any disturbing odors. And, because the smaller spray bottle is purse-sized, it fits easily into a pocket or carryall - knapsack, laptop bag - you guessed it - no one has to know. Then, if you think in the heat of the day that you're not smelling as fresh - you can wisely bring out your bottle and add another squirt. All people will know is the essence of your choice of essential oil.
An added treasure to this cost effective way of handling odor, is that you and every person around you benefits from the properties of the essential oil. As we all know, Lavender has a relaxing affect, Grapefruit assists concentration, eases worry and revives the spirit, Peppermint helps calm headaches.
You can even have a little bit of fun during Christmas season - by applying holiday scents - so everybody thinks you're assuredly in the Christmas spirit!
