Here's an interesting review for my readers today. When I first got the e-mail to review GoGirl I go what the **** is it? I did a fair bit of reading on GoGirl's website and was throughly impressed by the thingamajig. Not only it's in pink it's something that I could use during emergencies when there is no real clean bathrooms around. When I say real, I mean real proper bathrooms where there's flush, toilet paper, no signs of brownies anywhere (yes I shall call them brownies for now) and clean toilet bowl to sit on.
I say girl and not woman on purpose.
Simply put, GoGirl is the way to stand up to crowded, disgusting, distant or non-existent bathrooms. It's a female urination device (sometimes called a FUD) that allows you to urinate while standing up. It's neat. It's discreet. It's hygienic.
Before I say more, let's see what's really in the pink reusable tube it comes in?
So there you have it, once you tear off the seal around the cap, your GoGirl literally pops out along with a plastic bag that has information on it and a tissue which is really weird. Why 1 tissue? well better than no tissue at all.
The GoGirl is made of medical grade silicone and it is really flexible as I bend it around like a toy. It's soft and rubbery to feel, it's not pink but lavender in color. Clean the GoGirl with water and soap but if you're out there and there's no soap, just find a water source to clean it. The website says it's germ resistant and heat resistant :)
How To Use GoGirl?
Easy, just hold it against your body, forming a seal. Aim and, well, pee. Pretty simple, huh?
P.S I don't dare to go into the "hutan" to pee.
Also it comes in handy if you really do find yourself a public toilet but dare not sit or squat in fear of monster germs or yucky brownies getting on your skin. After use, just wash it with water at the sink.
Only GoGirl is made with flexible, medical grade silicone. Dispose of it after use. Or clean and reuse as you like. (Urine is sterile, but the product can come into contact with contaminates during use, so take precautions when cleaning.) Our patented splash guard eliminates messing and spilling. Once you practice a time or two, using GoGirl is going to feel like second nature.
Test #1: Using GoGirl Standing Up
It was easy, I just hold the short part front, fit it nicely there somewhat like a cover and pee. Well at first it was weird peeing into a device like this but after the 3rd testing, I'm already peeing like man. There's no spills or overflowing pee. I wash the GoGirl and dry it on my sink.
Test #2: Using GoGirl Sitting Down
I was trying to see if I could pull this off like a man in car peeing into a bottle. It's really tricky, the device is made to flow downwards (gravity yes) but I am sure one day I can master the art of peeing sitting down using GoGirl. At the moment, I must say I can't do it because it leaks out >_< in sitting position at the back. Alright I did this in the bathroom not in my car okay.
