A new member of this forum but have been diagnosed with Crohns since 1988 and living with it for several years before that. I live in the UK & used to have a mini aerosol deodorent spray [useful when caught short in public lavatories]. However Neutrodol no longer make this product and as I am going on holiday with a new partner & shall be sharing an en suite...
Any suggestions?

Others have recommended a product called "just a drop" that you drip into the toilet bowl before you go. I have not tried it before but if you google it you will probably see it online. I would also like to get a mini aerosol b/c mine are not usually stinky enough to require deodorizer but sometimes I get surprised. It would be nice to be prepared.

As far as sharing a suite, if it is in a hotel you could just use the lobby bathroom for number 2's. (If you can hold it that long.) Although depending on how comfortable you are with this new partner it may get awkward making excuses to go to the lobby lol. But if you are a morning pooper (like me!) you could go while your partner is in the shower. I understand how crappy this situation is... ha ha I didn't mean to make a pun even.

I like matches...tiny, easy to carry, and works for me. I also have travel size hand lotion - Its a real strong one and its easy to carry - plus, nobody would wonder why I have it in there. Rubbing it on my hands usually also scents the room.

I don't wear an ostomy, but we have patients at work that use the Just a Drop that way. I wasn't too impressed with it myself. Zoe you could always make the excuse of going to the lobby for drinks, extra towels, snacks or ask for additional directions....good way to plan your escape to the lobby bathroom.
I've found the immediate flush method works best for me. Unfortunately it usually takes 3 flushes before I'm done....lots of wasted water!

Ahhh Zoe - just send your friend to the lobby for drinks - car - towels - peanuts!!! what ever, just long enough to have the place to your self, so you can relax and take care of your self and business - then leave fan on and meet up for drinks - car ect, or before the person gets back you can spray deoderizer or light candles.
just be your self and let the bombs fly!!!!! I own choice - love me - love all of me!! hee hee hee
and remember your friend will be in the same position as you.......
don't worry and have fun.
 May God Bless and keep you in his care.

for ostomy bags try tic tacs......I use them and everything comes out minty (usually). My dogs always try follow me into the bathroom when I don't feel like chasing them out they just lay on the floor and wait for me to finish. Then I started with the Tic Tacs and they were curious about the noisy box of mints so I gave each one a Tic Tac. I didn't think they'd like it but to my surprise the chewed them up and ate them. Now they bowl me over when I go into the bathroom because they think it's treat time and they want their Tic Tac.
