My last post discussed possible alternatives for dealing with liquid waste while trying to bug out without having to stop. We found this item online that is used by campers but I never heard of it before and would not recommend an item unless I’ve seen it work.
The box came with 18 disposable urinals, hand wipes and tissues.
To use, unroll one of the disposable urinals, do #1 into it, fitting the funnel like opening directly underneath. For this test, I used dirty dish water. It was simple enough to use, if positioned correctly, there was no resulting splash or spill. The crystals inside the bag instantly puff up to absorb the liquid.
Now for the sniff test. There was no odor unless you got really close to the opening. It was not a strong whiff at all. I am not sure if this is supposed to be one use only, so I propped up the bag and added water to it 30 minutes later. The crystals continued to absorb the liquid twice more after the first time, although the liquid took a bit longer to get absorbed.
I overturned the bag over the toilet to see if it would leak but nothing leaked. The crystals absorbed all the liquid and stayed solid.
I would say this item worked as intended. It would come in handy if you had to bug out in a hurry and there is no place or time for a bathroom stop. Even if nothing happens, you can save it for long road trips or camping for those middle of the night emergencies. I will be adding it to my Amazon store.
