This week I’m going to be following up on one of the most surprising things we learned in our 2015 customer satisfaction survey. It seems like many of you may be using a pad or other absorbent product alongside your Men’s Liberty. We asked you to tell us why and boy did you come through!
So this week, we’re going to go through some of the most common reasons and what you can do to avoid the need to pads or diapers.
The most common issue was simply that men didn’t have the confidence or didn’t feel that they could get a 24 wear time. The problem, is that you get out of something what you put in. And every time you put on a pad you’re holding all that urine against your skin which has to come out. The Men’s Liberty will take it out and it will stop the Men’s Liberty from sticking for the full 24 hours.
Have you ever heard the phrase, “if you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always gotten.” Well it’s true. I know that it can be a bit intimidating but you can manage the learning curve.
So to set yourself up for success make sure you are doing the following:
First, make sure you are applying your Liberty to clean dry skin. If you are leaking constantly, use a Penile Clamp. This is a very gentle device that provides just enough compression to stop urine from flowing out of your anatomy. It is covered by Medicare and we can send it with your first order. If you’ve already gotten your order and need a clamp, just give us a call and we’ll get it right out to you!
Second, make sure you’ve used the Ivory or Gold Bar Dial soap. It seems like a little detail but it makes a huge difference. You can use whatever you want on the rest of your body but just on the groin use a bar soap that doesn’t have any moisturizers in it. We’ve put Ivory and Gold Bar Dial to the test and they work!
Third, make sure the first day you apply the Men’s Liberty you do it on a day when you don’t have to go anywhere. Because of the excess moisture in your skin from the pads or condom catheters, your first few Liberty’s WONT last for 24 hours. It takes a couple of consecutive applications to get all that moisture out. So start on a day when you are around the house and don’t have to go anywhere. Check your Liberty every hour or two and when it’s milky white or starts to leak, replace it.
Lastly, the most important thing is to put on one Men’s Liberty after another. Don’t switch back to a pad in between Liberty applications. Here at Men’s Liberty – we call it ping-ponging and it’s NO GOOD. Every time you ping-pong you are reintroducing moisture to the skin and limiting the Liberty’s ability to stay in place. And remember, if you switch back to pads at any time, you’re going to have to start again with the learning curve.
So those are our four major tips to get that 24 hour wear time. If you can do that, for three applications you should be over the learning curve and able to move forward without those pads!
