WATCH: Innovative spray limits toilet flushes and saves water

Written by: Lengwadishang Ramphele

Loo Me is a white foam that you spray directly into the loo and it floats on top of the water hiding the urine in the toilet bowl.

This is a product created by Milly Meltzer to help deal with the water problem in Cape Town.

She says the foam not only hides the urine but it also keeps the toilet smelling fresh. It comes in two scents, mountain fresh and ocean energy.

It is ozone friendly and I haven't had any comebacks that it blocks the toilet.

Loo Me is available from all Shoprite South Africa and Checkers stores in the Western Cape for R34.99.
