Some people don’t like the idea of using water to clean up after using the toilet for many different reasons. They find the idea of using water for cleaning the private parts as outrageous or uncomfortable, but what’s more outrageous are cutting down trees and processing the materials to make something that which is solely made to wipe off dirt from private parts. Bidets are popular in most Asian countries, and are getting more popular in other parts of the world.

There are many types of bidets, with varying functions and prices. Standalone bidets are much like an ordinary toilet bowl, except they are used only for washing underparts. They are a separate unit, making them really expensive. Handheld bidets look like the sprayers on the kitchen sink. They are easy to attach and are much cheaper. Lastly, there’s the bidet toilet seat attachment. They can entirely replace or can be attached to the toilet seat. It can easily be controlled by a dial to adjust the pressure of water coming out of the nozzle. Here are the reasons why people must get a bidet toilet seat attachment:

Hygiene and Health Benefits

Using bidets to clean up gives more fresh and thorough cleaning as opposed to using toilet paper. It doesn’t just end by splashing water alone; most people who use bidets also apply soap on the areas needed to be cleaned. Using soap and water cleans better than just using toilet papers.

Toilet paper can be irritating to the skin, especially in areas where it is sensitive.  Using toilet paper can make tiny scratches on the skin, causing irritation and other skin problems. People with these conditions can experience pain while using the toilet, which is worsened by using toilet papers. Bidets, however, can help ease the pain when cleaning up.

Economic and Environmental Friendly

In America, more than 36 billion rolls of toilet paper are used annually. That’s a lot of money doing down the drain, literally. Trees are cut down at an enormous rate, only to be used to wipe people’s undercarriages, when there’s a more economical and environmentally safe way to do it. By installing a bidet, more trees are allowed to grow and a lot of money can be saved.

Good for Kids and Elderly

Bidet seat attachments are incredibly easy to use, making it great for the children, elderly, or people who experience difficulty in washing on their own. It is also an easy and fun way to teach children a habit of maintaining a good hygiene.

Cool Functions

The spray nozzle that allows easy targeting is not the only thing that makes bidets amazing. Some bidets allow features such as water temperature control, seat heating, and even a dryer. These features not only gives ease and comfort to the user, but also making the trip to the toilet a more hygienic and fresh experience, something an old toilet paper can’t give.

Using toilet paper to clean up is not enough. Using a bidet is a much cleaner, healthier, more economical and environmentally friendly option.
