Words are singularly the most powerful force available to humanity. We can choose to use this force constructively with words of encouragement, or destructively using words of despair. Words have energy and power with the ability to help, to heal, to hinder, to hurt, to harm, to humiliate and to humble.

I find the name to really suit so what you are about to delve into is an idea that was sprung up by watching a YT video that lead to an amazon link, then to another item, that lead to the idea. I have searched and have found nothing quite like this. However, the general idea obviously has existed for a while. I give you the: Hand held Port-a-potty 😀

I came across this little travel potty that is properly sized and obviously sturdy for sitting but was still bulky… you could easily just go into the woods during travel and do your business without all the excess OR you could do it with the port-a-potty, the next best thing to the actual thing. Look at me already trying to sell it! How am I doing so far?

The idea of something small, simplistic, easy to clean, and portable is what I’m going for. Something MADE for travel. I’m talking just slips into your bag travel.

With all that said; I introduce you too…. the silicone minimizable potty for travels. Here’s the general idea of how it works: its small enough to fit in a bag and big enough to hold your works, and seals to keep in the stench with an added mini hard pressure cleaner.. Does this sound interesting yet? I hope so! The idea of colors sound nice so maybe 3 general colors like green, blue, and pink options to start. Now, with what I have in mind this particular make wont hold your weight for actual sitting but the squatting maneuver will do just fine. It is thin, round, and flat when collapsed and can be enlarged just by pulling upwards, with an added zippered lid for stench holding for long terms of being left full size. Maybe a strap added for extra “if needed” for when you empty but are possibly grossed out by holding the potty as a whole. You simply open to full size, squat, do your quick business, zip it up, and store to the side until you’re ready to clean and/or collapse. Obviously this isn’t going to be for someone who enjoy squatting for far more than a good minute and going about on their phone. This is for someone who wants to do the quick work and be done.

Here’s just a couple ways this would be a perfect travel companion:

Driving: If you’re driving and theres no restroom in sight and your alone, just not comfortable to be outside by yourself. Pull over, lock your doors and squat like you were made too. Then, quickly zip the top to prevent spillage and stinkage and GO! You do not want to end up in a horror movie situation.

Camping: Need privacy and have a tent?: do the business in there, zip the container and put it to the side or sit it outside of the tent. BUT if someone forgot to bring a tent yet had a small blanket of some sort and a buddy, it can work. If alone build a contraption with a tree.

If privacy is not of concern then this will still be good for car traveling. Though, this could totally serve as a dual purpose! Why not use it for dishes or laundry instead or even holding things for any general purpose? Soooooo many options… Perhaps I should give this a new name? It seems I have drifted from the potties initial purpose.

Now, to finish up this idea… the cleaning.. I think adding a mini pressure cleaner would be perfect! All you have to do is fill up with some water, pop in a little soap, and spray down the unloaded potty, no touching needed. The pressure of the cleaner will do all the work.

Obviously I’m sure theres so many ways to go about this and knicks could be changed around to make it far better for its actual purpose but this is just the rough draft. I give myself an A+!!
