Storing supplies in hot weather

Fri Jun 24, 2022 7:23 am
"This is the best website for people with an Ostomy, hands down. So much understanding. Everyone should join."

Hi everyone 😀

I joined a local ostomy group that has been meeting on zoom monthly. For the first time we will be meeting in person tomorrow... I am so excited! It will be a BBQ in a city park so there will be washrooms (thank goodness). My question is how to store my emergency supplies during this event. I have heard of them being ruined if kept in a car in hot weather. It is supposed to get really hot tomorrow. Maybe put them in a small cooler with an ice pack? What do others do? Thanks in advance! ❤️

That sounds Fantastic Sally !!! 👍😘.  Just what the Doctor ordered !!  A cooler with dry ice would be advised . The Sticky Stuff will get very soft   , even melt . They actually do stick better when they get hot and soft but the sticky pad   loses it's Thickness  so breaks down faster  . When very cold they can be pretty hard to stick. 

   Have fun Sally and you can  have  My Burger 😋😜 .... Magoo ☘

Haha I don't eat red meat anymore (it doesn't agree with me). I hope they have some grilled chicken. 😋🍗❤️☀️🦙🥤🌻

I’m pretty sure for the short amount of time you’ll be at your bbq your supplies will be fine. Just don’t let them sit in direct sunlight. I leave my supplies in a little bag in my truck 24/7 and haven’t had an issue yet. Same with my little bag I carry at work, it stays in my truck when I’m not at work.

Maybe I'm an outlier, but I've never, ever carried an emergency kit with supplies.  If I were to leave town, naturally, I'd bring my stuff with me.  But just around town, if I were ever to have a leak, for instance, I'd just excuse myself and go home to change.  I don't remember that ever happening.

You are a rebel Henry. LOL The BBQ is 1 1/2 hours from home so I will bring supplies. 🌞

Yeah. I have supplies in my truck and I carry supplies in my bag for work since I’m not anywhere close to being able to go home right away but I’ve never used any of it. I also carry flushable wet wipes to clean the end of the bag while at work, which I use all the time.

That's an idea to just have a smaller (less stuff) supply bag to carry with me.

I actually prefer chicken too Sally . I find Steak or  even  Hamburger  very ...overly filling  and it makes my belly uncomfortable . I Love marinated chicken  on the grill . For some unknown reason I also Love HotDogs with everything on it .  They will have Chicken for the Star of the day ...Sally !! ...you can have my Chicken too . No BBQ  here for a while , two weeks of rain in our future !!!

I keep Baggies with my Spare Baggies in my car , my backpack ,  in my jacket pocket !! All over the place . After a Total Blowout  Disaster in the security line at SF  Airport I also have a change of clothes in my backpack ( saved me at the Airport )  and in my car ...just in case . 

    I was driving my Bro and his Daughters to the Hospital in the next town one time and disaster struck.  The One and only time without a change of clothes . Someone suddenly said , " what is that smell !!!"   .  It was soooo bad !!!  I finished the drive with the windows open . I had to give the Daughter some money to go to a store to get me some jeans and a shirt  . I quickly ran into the hospital to change .  I always carry a wardrobe change with me .
