Products that offer convenient & practical health and hygiene solutions on-the-go. Venus® (for women) & My Little Helper® (for younger girls) are accessories that allow women/girls to pee while standing.

For maximum convenience and cleanliness SaniGirl® products are designed with the intention to be discarded after their initial use. Just dispose of it responsibly and go on your way. They can be re-used if needed, as they have a protective coating which does not absorb liquid. However, we believe it is most convenient, practical, and hygienic to use once and discard.

Yes, both Venus® and My Little Helper® are 100% recyclable.

No, once used simply dispose of them in the recycle bin, trash, or the blue water of a portapotty.

Venus® is recommended for all shapes, sizes, and ages 11 and up.
My Little Helper® is specially designed for girls between the ages of 3 and 11. It is the only product on the market today, specifically made for younger girls.

Venus® and My Little Helper® for Girls have a unique ergonomic design that prevents splashing and backflow. The products have a nice satin feel, are water resistant, and are small, compact and discreet. The quality is TOP – they will not arrive unglued, fall apart, or crumple in-use. The design allows it to fit nicely against the skin creating a much better seal than other designs.

It will only take at most 3 tries to become and expert and be an enthusiast forever! YES – It is a different sensation right away – there is no denying that! We are so used to squatting that it almost doesn’t feel possible that it will work standing! Trust that it does! The key to success is really just knowing the correct placement. Snug against the skin back far enough to cover the area that pee flows from. Let it flow! Then, wait until you’re done, slightly jiggle without removing yet. Slide it forward to remove any remaining drops on skin. If you are worried, we suggest trying it first at home at your toilet or in the shower is a great spot. This way you can take your time and you’re not worried about mishaps or thinking it will leak on your clothes. You may feel more comfortable this way and then gain confidence fast. We also have instructions and recommendations for use on our website (How to Use page at www.sanigirl.com)

Depending on the age of your child you may want to help them to use it the first couple of times. Not because it is difficult for them to use, but from testing we have learned that they think it is really cool and mid-stream may try to turn it up to look at it or try to do fancy spins with it. Once you help them and tell them to cover the area and keep it in place until finished kids really learn fast! Help as needed the first couple of tries and then they will be confident and want to stand and do it on their own!
