How many of you have to hold your pee for long hours because going to a public toilet seems like a nightmare? Keeping aside the smell and filth, the mere thought of your skin touching the toilet seat is enough to scare the shit out of you. I can certainly see murmurs of agreement. How often have we wished that if only we could stand up like guys and pee? Too many times! Right?
Well, some students at IIT came up with a solution which helps you to stand up like guys and pee. Unveiled on World Toilet Day, celebrated on November 19, this is a device that will help all the ladies to pull down their pants and stand up to pee.
The device is named ‘Sanfe’ which stand for Sanitation for female. Indeed a very thoughtful name. The best part is that it’s priced at Rs 10 and is reusable. Frankly, I would rather use this product and answer nature’s call than hold my pee for hours. Also, the price certainly makes it accessible for many.
If you are concerned about the aspect of hygiene, then there is nothing for you to worry about. Before opening it for public it went through a thorough testing at AIIMS in New Delhi. The product is coated with the water-resistant material. Ergonomically designed, it is also biodegradable in nature.
During ‘those times’ too women can use it without any worries. Keeping in mind the ethnic attire of the ladies, the product is designed in such a way that one can use it with one hand to stand up like guys and pee.
Wondering how the founders described their product? Well, this is what they said:
“Lack of hygiene in public washrooms exposes one out of every two women to Urinary Tract Infection (UTI). Concerned by this we innovated this female stand and pee device so that they can maintain a safe distance from the toilet seats and protect themselves from the possibility of getting infected.”
Launched under the #StandUpForYourself campaign, the creators of the product decided to distribute around 1 lakh free samples across the nation.
So ladies, all you have to do is pull down your pants and pee to your heart’s content. However, don’t join those few men who love showering the walls and roadsides with their pee!
