Besides being able
to drink without trouble, sanitary needs such as flushing the toilet and
washing up are among what we miss most when there is a power outage. Regardless of whether you are on a city or community
water system, or have your own well, pumps are necessary to deliver the water
and pumps are powered by electricity. A
family’s sanitary requirements can quickly become desperate if you have not
taken steps to provide for this beforehand.
When an emergency or disaster has caused an interruption of water
service, you will have to deal with sanitation quickly.
Even if you have a
supply of emergency water on hand, you will probably want to save this for
drinking and cooking. This is precisely
where Self Heating Wash Cloths can be so useful. These self-heating cloths can actually take
the place of a shower. Personal hygiene
kits for both men and women can help you to feel much more civilized when it’s
impossible to bathe in the usual way. Another
kit that will help you feel more like yourself is the Clear Solution Personal
Hygiene Kit. Besides emergency use,
these kits would also be useful when traveling or when on a camping trip.
While no one really
likes to talk about it, one of the worst things to have to manage during an
emergency is human waste. Your toilet
will be unusable, and it will be necessary to provide a temporary one. We have several solutions that will help you
get through this phase of an emergency crisis more easily. An excellent choice is the Port-A-Pottie. This temporary toilet comes with a seat and
lid and the basic unit can be made even more practical by adding Toilet Bags
and Port-A-Pottie Chemicals.
Emergencies are not
the only time when sanitary kits and items can prove useful, traveling and
outdoor expeditions can leave you far from the means to stay fresh and
clean. Those who travel a good deal can
appreciate the convenience of Toilet Seat Covers to keep you safe from
communicable disease. The Restop 2 will
also be invaluable for taking care of your needs when traveling long stretches
Those visiting the
outdoors will appreciate our Campers Solar Shower. Keeping clean in the backwoods can present
problems – who looks forward to an icy dip in a mountain stream – but this easy to carry shower will help you take a comfortable
shower using the heat of the sun.
Holding 5 gallons of water, this shower will allow several people to
bathe before it needs to be refilled.
