The Ladies Guide to Homemade She-Wees
Saturday, 25 January 2014

Conservation efforts in China dictate that one can only relieve oneself in areas of running water. In the Er Wang Dong area, running water is fairly infrequent and therefore one must relieve oneself into a sealable container, of which an empty water bottle is preferable.

Men have a distinct advantage, where the size of the bottle aperture isnt too much of an issue then it is to us ladies. Erins method is to wee into a zip lock bag and then pour into the water bottle, whereas Devras method is to use a reusable she-wee.

Unfortunately, due to lack of communication before Emma and I travelled out to China we had neither a reusable she-wee or excess zip lock bags. However all was not lost! No! Having the double X means we are crafty and can use these abilities to hone our very own homemade she-wees. In keeping with sharing all experiences and technical learning, I now share this with you, ladies of ULSA and
beyond

To make your very own she-wee you will need:

¢ A 500ml plastic bottle
¢ Scissors
¢ Marker pen
¢ Gaffer Tape
¢ Imagination

1. Take the water bottle and using the marker pen, mark a dotted line along the area you wish to cut (see fig. 1). Here you will need to use your imagination to consider the likely proportions you will need. Fig. 2 provides some ideas here, Emma has gone for a cup-style approach, whereas Holly has employed the use of trench collection.
Remember that you are going for an overall funnel shape and therefore need the top of the bottle to act as the out flow.
2. Cut along your dotted line using the scissors (see fig. 3) NOTE: Care needed here as scissors are sharp. Consider whether supervision is needed.
3. Cover the sharp edges of the plastic with gaffer tape to protect oneself and improve comfort (see fig. 4)
4. Now you are ready to use your homemade she-wee! (See fig. 5)
Advantages to the homemade she-wee:
¢ Collecting any wee into the resulting container bottle is a big achievement and leaves one with a satisfied feeling.
Disadvantages to the homemade she-wee:
¢ Likelihood of collecting wee into resulting container bottle is very low.
¢ Rate of flow must be controlled to prevent back-logging and overflow due to the size of the out flow aperture.
¢ Weeing over hands is inevitable.
Conclusions and Recommendations:
Use a zip-lock bag.
