Once a week, we travel across state borders to work on some land we recently purchased. We hope to build a home on it next year, but right now it's covered in trees, poison ivy, tall grasses AND has a large tick population.
Working all day in the heat, while wearing gear to keep ticks off (head wraps, work gloves, long sleeves, long pants tucked into my socks) I was perspiring quite a lot and I started to have some very dangerous issues with dehydration. I wasn't drinking enough water... because I didn't want to have to use the bathroom!
You see, ticks are attracted to sweat and urine. I was terrified to take a leak outside where ticks are; it's simply too risky! We have a single shed on the property, for tools etc. and have cleaned out the area around it. I considered putting an average camp toilet inside, but quickly realized the urine would draw ticks to it.
The Carloo has changed all of this for me! Now I keep the Carloo in the car. When I need it at the property, I get it out and put it on a chair inside the shed. When I'm done, I simply pick it up and put it back in the car. The ticks never find it ...or me!
Before, I wasn't drinking enough water because I didn't want to have to use the bathroom. Now, I can chug all the water I want and I can go to the bathroom as often as I like. My symptoms of dehydration are gone.
Thanks again so much. I cannot express how significantly your invention has changed my life and my experience - you have saved my life, my liver, and my urinary tract system as well!
"How do you Carloo?" are real stories that have been shared with us, but many people are shy about their bathrooming habits, so no real names or photos of customers are used in this post (but this is the real Shedloo in the photo!).
