Hints and Links
Here we have compiled a list of hints that can make life easier when nature calls!
Toilet training children
Pipinette Travel Kit used together with the Oval Ring holder acts as a little portable toilet that fits in your pocket, taking no more space than a pair of spectacles. Carry one with you so your child can pee safely and hygienically wherever you happen to be!
Travelling with children
When travelling in the car with children a Pipinette is convenient to use and can be emptied at the side of the road. Alternatively a Pipinette can be used together with a Travel Kit bag and the bag can be disposed of at your next stop.
In case of emergencies it is always safer to have a Travel Kit in the car to avoid embarrassing accidents!
By the roadside
Stop by the roadside and open the two car doors to form a shelter so you can discretely use your Pipinette.
Staying away overnight
It is convenient to bring your own Pipinette so you can avoid disturbing others during the night. After use simply pop the lid on and empty in the morning.
Beside the bed at home
Do you need to get up during the night? You can conveniently use your Pipinette at the side of your bed, put the lid on after use and place it on your bedside table. Being up a shorter time means you will find it is easier to get back to sleep afterwards and also you avoid any risk of falling on the way to the bathroom.
Fixing the plumbing at home
Many people use a Pipinette when the toilet is out of function at home.
A fresh toilet for elderly men
Elderly men can use a Pipinette as a hand held mens urinal held over the toilet and simply empty it into the toilet after use thus keeping the toilet clean and splash-free. When not in use the Pipinette can be kept on a shelf.
Raised toilet seats are not portable
Often those who have difficulty sitting down and getting up have raised toilet seats in their home. When away from home they can carry a Pipinette for use in either private or public places.
