Ashley, I got a simple pH testing kit, the type used for ponds etc! Bought it from a garden centre. Britta's website does say their system makes the water acidic, but how much it changes depends on the starting pH. Might be worth testing your tap water. I posted the same info on an IC forum (The Cystitis and Overactive Bladder Foundation forum) - I tried to copy the link but it's not working.
I've been to France 3 times now. My OH and my two little boys just end up using a tree when we're out and about
!! I did post on COBF about
"how to wee in France" - if you want to search for that! Basically the big supermarkets are a safe bet but I did discover this time that the museum type places often have loos in the foyer, so you can go in and mull around as if considering whether to go in, and slip off to the loo
