Urological conditions, such as incontinence or prostate issues, are nothing to be embarrassed about, but this does not mean you want them to become a conversation piece. These conditions often require specialty supplies and it’s perfectly natural to want to keep your bathroom business private. With a little creativity, there are ways to store these supplies discreetly and maintain your privacy. Here are some tips on urology supply storage:
Dual-Purpose Wicker Baskets Offer Decorative Urology Supply Storage
Dual-purpose wicker baskets are ideal for stowing away urological supplies as they are both decorative and functional. You can jazz up your space with pretty colors AND choose baskets with lids so that no one can easily see what is inside. If you have a small space for storage, then opt for stackable baskets, which are still aesthetically-pleasing but don't take up too much room.
Stick Urology Supplies in a Plastic Medicine Box
If you have a lot of small odds and ends that you need to keep up with for your urology supplies, then put them in a plastic medicine box. You can easily tuck it in a cabinet underneath your bathroom sink or even in the towel closet towards the back. This allows for easy access to some of the smaller moving parts, while still remaining discreet. While most are clear, you may be able to score a solid-colored box, which will also help with privacy considerations.
Designate One Cabinet in Your Bathroom for Incontinence Supplies and Place a Lock On It
If you want to keep incontinence supplies out of site, put them in a bathroom cabinet that does not get a lot of use. This is a good way to make use of the storage you may already have without exposing your supplies to anyone that uses the bathroom. You can place a discreet lock on the cabinet if you have guests over frequently. You can opt for a combination lock, so you don't have to keep up with a key, or a small key lock and keep the key somewhere in the bathroom you can easily access it.
Purchase a Mobile Storage Cabinet
This is one of the simplest ways to stow away your urology and incontinence supplies. If you want it to have some mobility for convenience and access, then opt for one on wheels that can roll around the bathroom or even your home.
Staying Discreet On The Move
The best way to keep your supplies discreet while you are on the go is to utilize some sort of bag or case to hold your supplies. Some examples that you can use are things like a backpack, sewing bag, makeup bag, eyeglass case, or a pencil case. All these carrying options are typically utilized for other things so they will keep your supplies safe and no one will think twice!
To keep your supplies discreet while using the restroom, keep a few disposable bags with you to discard used supplies and then throw the whole bag away.
Keeping Drain Bags and Leg Bags Discreet
One of the newest innovations within urology supplies is the release of the Freedom Belt. This belt was created to give individuals using drainage bags their freedom back. The standard securement device leaves drainage bags unsecure, visible, and frankly uncomfortable, which restricts ones ability to do certain activities and can feel embarrassing. This belt was specifically designed to keep your drain bags comfortably secured to your body, all while discreetly fitting under your clothes. Designed to move with you, you can get back to the things you love without anyone knowing what you have on.
Try Discreet Travel-Sized Catheter Supplies
Advancing Technology and patient feedback has led many companies to develop discrete and compact catheters that are easy to store and keep private. These compact catheters are designed to look like everyday items and the average person would have no idea that you were carrying a catheter. Women do have a few more options when it comes to the discreet catheters, one of our community favorite’s is the Cure Twist. The Twist is ready to use out of the container and has a unique anti-leak lock so there is no mess. Another good option is the Coloplast SpeediCath Compact Catheters, which come in both Men and Women sizes.
