Vikas Bagaria, founder of PeeSafe, and Renu Malik, gynaecologist at Radix Health Care, have given a few inputs:

  • Urination devices: Waterproof funnel like devices, which are generally designed for women to help them urinate while standing.
  • Toilet seat sanitizer: Finding a clean and sanitized toilet while travelling is a daunting task for everyone. Using public or common washrooms is the major cause of increasing urine infection -- UTI among Indians. Always carry and use toilet seat sanitizer sprays to avoid such infections.
  • Toilet powder: The powder helps control pests and reduce odours.
  • Hand sanitizer and wipes: A must-have in your bag if you are often on public transit. Contact with unseen germs on the go is unavoidable. Always keep a hand sanitizer and a few wet wipes handy.
