Bidets may not have caught on in North America as they have in Europe or Latin American countries, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t a case for them – find out why this can be the next accessory to make a big splash in your bathroom.
You’ll Never Feel Cleaner
If you’re hoping to take your personal hygiene to a new level, a bidet is a quick way to get squeaky clean. The device practically allows you to have a quick rinse after every bathroom visit, beating out drying off with the traditional two-ply toilet paper.
If our ongoing public health conversations have taught us anything, it’s that toilet paper can cost a pretty penny. Bidets are an upfront investment – you walk away from your hardware store with an extension for your toilet, and that’s the last you’ll spend on a bidet unless you’re in the market for a replacement.
Doctors often prescribe sitz baths to new parents after childbirth. If you don’t want to, or can’t, set up the warm shallow bath, a bidet is a great stand-in – simply turn it on to benefit from its bottom cleaning effects.
It’s Great for Our Planet
It’s a known fact that toilet paper contributes to deforestation. Keeping a bidet extension on your toilet means you don’t have to rely on toilet paper as much.
If you have a little one at home, a bidet is an excellent tool to incorporate into their potty training – it’s the perfect way to instill a sense of cleanliness and good hygiene habits while teaching them how to use the bathroom.
Loving the Skin You’re In
Rinsing any residue from our frequent visits to the toilet greatly benefits our overall skin health.
Time of the Month
Anyone who goes through the monthlies knows that it can be tedious to maintain a feeling of freshness. Bidets go a long way here – they can help tidy up with each bathroom visit, dispelling some of the discomfort that comes with the time of the month.
Use Less Toilet Paper
A pack of toilet paper never seems to last long enough. It’s only a matter of time until you’re down to the cardboard roll, wondering how you’ve managed to yet again plough through another pack of toilet paper. A home-installed bidet is the perfect tool to help you stretch out the time between each toilet paper inspired grocery run.
Save on Flushable Wipes
Bidets are great for weaning off flushable wipes – which, it turns out, aren’t that flushable.
If you’re looking for the same quality clean without expensive wipes or a clogged toilet, a quick rinse from a bidet may be your best bet.
Cut Back on Your Plumbing Bill
If you’re tired of the plumber visiting, a bidet might be a worthwhile investment – cutting down on toilet paper and wipes help keep your pipes and plumbing unobstructed.
