The wonderful folks at Tinkle 'n Toss found my blog post (cheers to Google alerts!), and invited me to test tinkle their product. How could I refuse?
For my first test, I tried it in the shower, as suggested on the package. I got a little pee splash on my foot, since I hit the tile and not the drain for a few seconds, but that's okay, I was dirty anyway and running water was nearby. Tip number one, make sure you aim your stream at a drain, or absorbent surface like water or dirt. I'm sure boys find this out early in life.
For the next test, I bravely stood at my toilet and let loose. What a great sensation, to pee standing up! Now I know why men like it so much. The device worked fine, funneling the liquid into the bowl, and not leaking at all. Then, I ran into a problem. If I disposed of it right into the toilet, I would have been fine, but I have a septic system and the package recommends not tossing the device into a well or septic system. Tip number two, have a plan to dispose of the used device. Uh-oh, another problem. I realized I had to get toilet paper. Since both hands were holding the T 'n T, I shuffled around a bit to reach the paper. Tip number three, have your TP ready.
Though I ended up having to change my undies since I dribbled during the disposal process, I like the Tinkle 'n Toss, and by implementing the above tips, I believe this product will work beautifully. I see it being very useful for those with bad knees and hips, who find it difficult to squat. And who hasn't been in that weird toilet that's way too low or too high, or has no room between the porcelain and the stall door?
Buy a pack, do a test run, and never fear a bathroom again.
