5 Incontinence Products You Should be Using
When you are dealing with incontinence, there are a lot of decisions you must face: what brand of diaper to choose, the style, the absorbency level, and the size, for starters. However, there is one aspect of incontinence that affects everyone but isn’t often openly discussed: diaper disposal. Here are some solutions to this “pink elephant in the room” problem. We’d love to hear your suggestions and tips — share them in the comments below!
A Discreet, Trustworthy System
There are plenty of diaper disposal systems on the market, but most aren’t designed for the needs and volume of an adult user. That’s where the JANIBELL Akord Adult Incontinence Disposal System comes in. With enough capacity to fit 35 adult diapers or up to 120 infant diapers, the JANIBELL system comes pre-loaded with a liner and is therefore ready-to-use right out of the box. Odours are trapped thanks to its unique, hands-free design, and the unit solicits only a small footprint on your washroom floor.
Recycle, Reduce, Reuse
If you find yourself with budgetary constraints (don’t we all?), remember
that you don't necessarily have to rely on professional disposal systems or bags. In
fact, you likely have oodles of a cost-effective disposal product sitting in
your house at this moment: those 5-cent shopping bags you purchase every
time you forget to pack a reusable bag. They are going to be tossed in the trash
anyway — why not fill them before they hit the trash?
You may not be aware that some municipalities across Canada, like Toronto and York Region, allow for diaper and sanitary product disposal as part of their green bin programs. Contact your local garbage and recycling services or search online to find out if your town is part of the green diaper movement!
One of the unpleasant and unfortunate side effects of incontinence is red, chapped skin, also known as dermatitis. The seal created by a well-made and properly working diaper can keep sweat and other liquids close to the body, causing this uncomfortable (and unwanted) result. If you or a loved one is dealing with incontinence, a high-quality cream should be [...]

Many people are familiar with “baby wipes” – those thin, premoistened washcloths used to clean the skin at diaper changes. Not much bigger than the moist towelettes you get at fast food restaurants, they do a basic job in cleaning up messes, but aren’t quite up to the task of cleaning an adult-sized person. That’s why we have adult washcloths [...]
