‘Necessity is the mother of invention’…
…and as a mother of five I have had to be very inventive on numerous occasions!
This device was born out of necessity when my 2 year old was stung by a wasp and there was nothing available to treat it. My mother had always said the remedy for wasp stings was vinegar but I thought it was an old wives’ tale. With no other option, I decided to give it a go. I was absolutely amazed! It was so effective and after 10 minutes you wouldn’t have known he’d been stung! Since then, it is all I have used on my children to treat all sorts of insect bites and stings.
Being a pharmacist, I knew there was nothing containing this brilliant, natural ingredient over the counter and spent many years thinking of ways I could package it to make it accessible to everyone, especially those with young children who had no alternative.
The result is WASuP, a portable device which releases a bamboo wipe when activated (be sure to press hard, preferably on a flat surface) that is soaked in organic apple cider vinegar and ready to unroll and apply to the sting in seconds. It is suitable for all ages as well as a wide variety of insect bites, stings and rashes. The Australians use vinegar on jellyfish stings and have containers of it on the beaches ready for use if needed so its not just us who know how good it is. WASuP is the portable alternative for bites and stings, designed to throw in your changing bag, pocket, backpack etc, without fear of leakage and ensuring peace of mind whenever you are out and about, whatever your age.
As with anything, if irritation occurs, wash thoroughly with water and discontinue use. Of utmost importance, anyone suffering from breathing difficulties or anaphylactic reactions to stings must seek medical help immediately. Do not use near the eyes.
With a biodegradable wipe and recyclable container, WASuP isn’t just great for you: WASuP is great for EVERYONE.
IT’S THE PERFECT POCKET-SIZE SAFETY NET.
