Have you ever come across the word ‘bidet’ and rolled your eyes because you think they are frivolous and for wealthy people who are too privileged to wipe their own butts? If you do, then you aren’t alone. But, it’s time to look at bidets under a different light. They are wonderful devices that can change lives, promote healthier lifestyles, and save you ‘loads’ of money. We here at Bio Bidet are going to prove to you with only 10 reasons why bidets are very practical and provide excellent benefits for anyone at any age.
Here are our top 10 reason lists:
1. More Hygienic Than Paper
f you got something full of germs and bacteria on your hands or arms you wouldn’t just wipe it with a paper towel until it came back clean would you? You wouldn’t feel like you got your hands clean unless you scrubbed with soap and water! You would use at least water to clean it off so why only use dry toilet paper on your bottom? It is a sensitive area that you should treat as best as you could to maintain the best hygiene and prevent future problems and toilet paper alone is not the best you can do.
2. A bidet pays for itself in the money you save NOT buying toilet paper
Toilet paper is about $10 for a 12 pack on average. After 5 packs of that you could have purchased a basic bidet attachment. Also have a big family? You would use a fraction of the toilet paper you would normally with cleaner results when you have a bidet. With the money you save on toilet paper you can spend it on something better.
3. More environmentally friendly than toilet paper
On average Americans use about 36.5 billion rolls of toilet paper a year. That’s 473,587,500,000 gallons of water wasted per year, that’s 473 billion gallons! 36.8 billion rolls of toilet paper is roughly 15 million trees. Imagine if half of the American population started using bidets, that number would drop significantly. Water wouldn’t be wasted, forests would thrive once again. The amount of toilet paper used by people who have bidets is a fraction of the amount that people without bidets use.
4. Helps with health problems
If someone suffers from constipation or hemorrhoids a bidet seat will help a ton! Some bidets have enough pressure or specially designed nozzle tips to send water inside you for a more thorough cleaning to help flush your system inside out. People who suffer from hemorrhoids no longer have to suffer with the rough abrasive feel of toilet paper. Some higher end bidet seats offer warm water and a dryer as a solution against toilet paper. The pain of hemorrhoids will be a thing of the past.
5. Add luxury to your bathroom
Going for a high end luxurious bathroom but don’t have a lot of space for a standalone bidet? The luxury models of advanced bidet seats will not only fit your bathroom theme but they will also add value. There is nothing wrong with wanting a luxurious bathroom, after all you work hard for what you have so why not reward yourself? The bidet is the ultimate bathroom upgrade, everyone has a sink, toilet, and a shower in their bathroom, but not everyone has a bidet. People will be wowed and impressed when they walk into your bathroom and they see a state-of-the-art bidet.
6. Good stepping stone for kids
Good personal hygiene is something we all want for our kids. Washing your bottom after every “use” is a good reminder for children to follow when they perform proper bathroom hygiene. It will continuously be used to help them to develop great personal hygiene habits. Personal hygiene is important for children and it will help prevent them from getting sick by eliminating fecal matter and bacteria.
7. Prevents toilet clogging
As you know by now, using a bidet will help you use less toilet paper. Using less toilet paper is not only cost effective but will also help prevent clogged toilets. Also if your house is not connected to a city sewer system, you will have a limit on your septic tank. Using less toilet paper will allow for your septic tank to be emptied less! Toilet paper clogs can be costly to fix for you and can cost a city thousands of dollars to fix. No matter how strongly companies claim that toilet paper is flushable, large masses of it going through the same pipes will eventually cause problems. With a bidet, you really only need a few squares of toilet paper to pat dry so this significantly reduces the amount of waste you’re flushing each time you use the bathroom.
8. Bidet attachments and bidet seats are better than conventional bidet fixtures
A traditional standalone bidet requires additional space and plumbing. An attachable bidet requires no additional space and no additional plumbing because they are designed to fit onto your existing toilet and fit into existing water supply valves. For a standalone bidet, you have to straddle the bidet and sit awkwardly on it to get it to line up right. With a bidet seat you just sit on the toilet like usual, and can adjust the water temperature as needed, make it pulsate or oscillate, move the nozzle to your desired position, and many other functions! Standalone bidets have a classical look but are not practical anymore especially in the United States where most bathrooms cannot accommodate a toilet and additional room for a bidet fixture.
9. Bidet seats are warm and don't slam on toilet
Sitting on the toilet on a cold winter day is a teeth-clenching and unpleasant experience. What is also unpleasant is a seat and lid that slams down. When the toilet is flushed, thousands of germs spray out if the lid isn’t shut so it is important to close the lid before flushing. A lid that slams down can not only damage the lid but can also startle your family. Bidet seats are a solution to both of those problems. Slow closing seats and lids as well as heated seats are standard features on bidet seats. These may seem like insignificant features but believe us when we say that once you get used to these two features, you won’t ever want another plain toilet seat.
10. Over all, bidets are just cool!
Being able to clean and dry with just the push of a button makes anyone feel like royalty on their porcelain throne. Bidets are still a fairly new concept in the United States but they are rapidly gaining more popularity as people begin to understand how beneficial they are and how much they contribute to a healthier and happier lifestyle. Bidets will make your life easier, keep you clean and refreshed after each use, save you money, and fascinate your peers.
