Freshette Female Urination Device

26 Jun

Men have always had a bit of an advantage when relieving themselves outdoors, while traveling, at concerts, in nasty situations, and countless other places. But Women now have the same advantage with Freshette. From the manufacturer: “If you are an active outdoor woman you know what a hassle it can be trying to urinate when restrooms are unsanitary or unavailable. The alternative of having to get halfway undressed can result in exposure to the elements and embarrassment. This is where the Sports & Travel Freshette plays a vital role, allowing you to urinate while standing, requiring minimal or no undressing.” Learn more about Freshette and see current pricing at Makais.
