Amber Wallace had ileostomy surgery in July 2016 because of Crohn’s disease. She came up with a simple solution to keep her ostomy system from getting wet in the shower. The best part is, she’s using just two items — and one comes inside the packaging of many ostomy pouch orders.

Here's a shortcut that can save you some time getting ready in the morning. 

Sometimes it’s the simplest solutions that work out the best. Thanks for sharing, Amber!

Here are the two products used in her video:

  • 3M Durapore Cloth Tape (
  • Hollister 2-piece drainable lock n roll pouch: #18182
