5 Signs It’s Time to Consider Diaper Covers & Prevent Leaks

Rubber gloves. Bleach. Soap. Bucket. Cleaning urine and fecal-soiled clothing is a time-consuming task. You know that hydrogen peroxide and vinegar are your best friends when you clean up. 

The truth is, leaks happen. You or a loved one may be managing Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, or other condition that causes bowel incontinence

You are tired of cleaning urine and bowel leaks at all hours of the night. 

What if there was a product that could prevent leaks onto clothing and save you time on cleaning?

A product that could help you stay free from leaks. 

Waterproof diaper covers can help. 

We will explain the benefits of diaper covers and the signs it may be time to consider using them.

Spend less time cleaning messy accidents and more time enjoying doing the things you love.

What Are Diaper Covers?

Diaper covers, also known as plastic pants, are used alongside absorbent incontinence products. Waterproof diaper covers contain any liquid that may leak out of diapers. The close fit of diaper covers helps provide a secure fit. 

Think of a diaper cover as an extra layer of security. 

Diaper covers help contain urinary and bowel leaks from getting onto your clothing. They seal in leaks and can prevent unwanted stains and odors from escaping. 

Diaper covers today are more modern and stylish than their previous counterparts.

Are you curious if waterproof diaper covers would work for your situation? Here are signs that it may be time to try them.

Sign # 1 - Frequent Leaks on to Clothing

What’s one sign you may need a diaper cover? Frequent leaks to clothing. No one wants to leak when wearing adult diapers. It’s embarrassing and stressful. If you may have frequent leaks, first, you may need to change your primary adult diaper (size or style). People new to incontinence tend to use the incorrect size diaper. Adults may also double up on diapers in the hopes of preventing leaks.

If you are happy with your product, but still notice leaks, you may want to use a diaper cover. Diaper covers can eliminate the chances of leaks with their waterproof lining. 

Sign #2 - Frequency of Strong-Smelling Odors

There is no denying that odors are a concern when managing incontinence. No matter your situation, you probably want odors contained at all times. Urine and bowel smells can be intense, so use products that can help eliminate those when needed! 

Waterproof covers offer a laminated polyurethane coating, which is resistant to strong-smelling odors. Get peace of mind when you need to wear your briefs or pull ups in public or when traveling. 

Sign # 3 - Added Stress During Travel

Traveling outside the house can be stressful for adults managing incontinence. Whether you are going to the post office or Mexico, it can be a nerve-wracking experience. But it doesn’t have to be. With the right products and supplies on hand, you can travel with ease.

Do you ever look for the nearest bathroom? Do you always pick an aisle seat on the plane? You may want to use diaper covers to help ease the stress when traveling. 

Diaper covers can give you a sense of security and peace of mind when a restroom is not nearby.

Sign # 4 - Incontinence Products Not Staying In Place

Absorbent adult diapers can move from time to time. If you want your products to stay in place, consider diaper covers. Diaper covers fit around your briefs or pull ups and can keep them in place when exercising and working. 

Sign #5 - Too Much Time Spent on Cleaning

If you are cleaning urinary or bowel leaks often, a diaper cover can save hours in your day. Remember, even the most absorbent adult diapers can only hold so much.

A diaper cover can help contain the leaks that may come out of your current disposable product. More protection means less leaks and cleaning. 

Scrubbing, soaking, washing. Pre-wash. Cleaning leaks can get tiresome. 

Save time by using diaper covers. Diaper covers can help give you the peace of mind and security you deserve. 

Should you use diaper covers? If you are managing frequent leaks and strong-smelling odors, then yes, it wouldn’t hurt. Sizing matters when selecting diaper covers, so make sure you measure yourself first. 

Incontinence may be challenging to manage, but when you use the right products, you can live life on your terms … without leaks.
