Tips & Tricks: How to Use the Bedside Bag
We’ve seen a new question popping up over the last few weeks and I wanted to take a few minutes here with all of you to answer! It seems like we’ve got a little confusion out there about some of the related products that can be provided alongside your Men’s Liberty. Find out here how to use the Bedside Bag.
The first of these products is a bed bag. It looks just like this one <<hold one up>>. In fact, this is designed for overnight use and attaches to the small plug at the base of the Men’s Liberty pouch. It holds up to 64 ounces of fluid and is covered by Medicare and most insurance plans.
So when you’re ready for bed – this is how to use the bedside bag:
- Sit down on your bed, place the empty bed bag on the floor next to your bed or hook it to your bedframe. It doesn’t matter which of these you do. You just want to make sure that the bag is resting below your bladder. So that gravity will make sure it drains.
- Next, take off the blue cap on the end of the bed bag tubing. Remove the plug from the bottom of your Men’s Liberty pouch and push the bed bag adaptor into the plug hole on the pouch firmly. Keep pushing the adaptor in there until it’s secure. Pull up your boxers or other pjs and then you’re ready to get a restful night’s sleep. In the morning, remove the adaptor and replug your Liberty. Empty the bed bag into the toilet and put it somewhere safe for tomorrow night.
- One other tip. If your bed bag has a bit of a smell to it after a few nights, you can rinse the bag. Use a solution of 2 parts white vinegar and 3 parts water. Or 1 tablespoon of chlorine bleach and about a cup of water. Pour this into the bag and swish it around for about 30 seconds. Drain the bag and allow to dry. This will totally get rid of the smell and keep your bed bag daisy fresh.
The bed bag is supposed to be re-used for up to two weeks.
That’s why we give you two bed bags with each month’s supply of Men’s Liberty. If you don’t wear the Liberty at night – just tell us so we know you don’t use the bedside bag.
