Tips for Using a Pee Funnel
Okay, so you need to know how to use your new pee funnel. We’ve got you covered! Keep on reading.
Tip #1: Practice in the Shower
The most important thing about using a FUD for the first few times is to do it in the shower. If you make a mistake, it won’t be disaster. And mistake you probably will make—there is a serious learning curve with some of these, especially something that fits right around your urethra like the Pibella.
Tip #2: Not Into the Wind
Don’t direct the urine through the funnel pointing into the wind. Trust us on that one. You’ll end up with pee all over your legs and shoes.
Tip #3: Great for After Surgery
Female urinals aren’t just for outdoor activities. They also make great options if you’d had foot, knee, ankle, or leg surgery. You can pee into the toilet while standing up just like a guy. Love it? We’re sure you will. Your knee will thank us.
Tip #4: Not Just for Females
Okay, so pee funnels aren’t just for females. They’re also great for trans people who may feel more comfortable standing up.
Tip #5: Follow the Instructions!
Each urination device is different. Follow the instructions that come along with it. Some say to use 1 hand, others 2. Some require one hand in the front and one in the back, or one on each side of the device.
You’ll have the best results if you follow the specific directions for that brand.
Tip #6: Wash it, or Not
Most pee funnels don’t require washing. You just have to shake them off and they mostly dry quickly on their own. You can wash them with soap and water if you’d like, or with something like a menstrual cup wash.
The most important thing is to not store them in an airtight container. This could breed all sorts of bad bacteria. Air flow is key!
Tip #7: Pair with a Water Bottle for Some Camping Awesome
If you want to pee inside your tent at night instead of putting on your jacket and getting out there in the rain, then get yourself a wide-mouth water bottle (Nalgene) and use your pee funnel to pee into there. Close the lid and empty it in the morning.
