The Travel John Is Here!

Although it might not seem like it at the moment, spring is here, which means the summer holidays and festival season is just around the corner.  If you have been lucky enough to get your hands on any of the big festival tickets this year then the excitement should be setting in.  But there’s always one thing associated with festivals, and camping alike, which dampens the experience. Toilets.

Whilst we all might have an amusing story about the state of festival/camping loos, it’s usually something approached with dread and terror.  The smell, the hygiene, the lack of toilet paper! I have learnt from previous experiences, that bringing your own toilet paper is a definite must, if you don’t want to be dragged to the lows of buying a square of tissue from a money hungry festival goer.  Men definitely have it easier than us girls, and so various products have been developed to make our toileting experience as easy as possible. 

One product new to HealthandCare is the TravelJohn, a disposable urinal with a difference. The TravelJohn is effectively a bag within a bag, with a unisex plastic collar so it can be used by anyone, man, woman or child.  Within the bag is a non-toxic, odourless gel, which instantly absorbs the liquid, making the product leak-proof and hygienic.  The TravelJohn is lightweight and so can be taken on the go to be used wherever and whenever, allowing you to skip the queues and pee in peace.  It can be reused until full, and is waste safe so can be simply thrown way when you’re done. 

The TravelJohn is not limited to just festivals and camping, we’ve all been in situations where we’ve been dying for the toilet with none in sight.   It can even be used in hospitals for patients who have difficulty getting to the toilet. 

Now with the TravelJohn, there is a safe, hygienic and convenient alternative than carrying around a heavy bladder for hours.  And at £7.95 for three urinals, it will hardly break the bank to give it a try.
