Disposable continence pads and pants are designed to contain and absorb urine and faeces. They should be changed at least 4-6 times a day and when wet or soiled.
Important: don't flush disposable continence pads or pants down the toilet. Disposable pads contain an absorbent gel that will swell and block the plumbing.
When away from home, bring with you:
Some public toilets have suitable rubbish bins, particularly toilets designed for people with disability. If there is no suitable bin in the toilet, take the used products home and throw them away in your home rubbish bin.
