Spray bottle advice, please?

Posted , 7 users are following.

I've read about using a water spray with bicarb after urination, but wondered what sort of bottle would be best for this.  I've read about peri bottles, which seem to be ideal, but I've only seen them online at silly prices.  I've bought an ordinary spray bottle, but it doesn't work very well.  

Could anyone possibly advise me what type of spray bottle would be best and which I could buy quite cheaply in the UK?

    Hi, If you have a Whole Foods store or health food store, you can buy a small blue glass spray bottle. It hold about 4 oz. It is great for your purse. I carry mine at all times. Maybe go on line.They are only 2-3 dollars. As for the Peri bottle, it is larger. Again look online. Mine was only a few dollars. Good for at home..Medical supply stores charge a fortune. My first was $20.I found out what company they order from, in Miami, and ordered 2 for $6.

    Thank you all for your replies.  Unfortunately, Hanny, from what I've read online, UK hospitals don't have them, or I would certainly do as you suggest.

    I've seen the peri bottles on Amazon UK, but they're asking £67 for them!  Crazy!

    However, I did have another search for squirt bottles on Amazon and found a wider range, so thank you, Barbara, Cynthia and Dianne. I'll also have a look in the Health Store, Cynthia.   I should be able to find something now.

    My best option is in the Dollar Store.  For one dollar ts is a bargain.  The trick i used is putting very warm water into the bottle first then the borax.  Get out any clumps before spooning in, and shake with each little bit added.  The warm warm water seems to help dissolve ,  Then I shake before every use.  I'm even getting muscles and much relief.  Spray bottles don't work if there are clumps because the water is sprayed from the bottom of the bottle and clog easily.  Spraying I found covers more area.  Good luck Cheetah.
