What is a Bidet?
USPA

The word bidet is French and means pony. A bidet, pronounced “bi-day,” is a plumbing fixture that is intended for the washing of genitalia, buttocks and the anus after urinating or making a bowel movement. There are numerous purported benefits associated with the use of a bidet, and there are both standalone and attachable bidet models. The name of this plumbing fixture originates from how the user is seated on the device, which resembles straddling a pony. The bidet was actually originally a bedroom fixture, but advances relating to the infrastructure of plumbing allowed it to become a bathroom fixture over time.

The electronic bidet rolled out during the 1960s, and this made it possible for attachable bidet seats to attach to regular toilets. In the past, up until this point, only standalone units were available. Electronic bidets made it possible for an attached bidet seat to connect to the top of any ordinary toilet to create a single space-saving unit. How you use a bidet can vary depending on what model you are using. Units that are attached to the top of an ordinary toilet are best used sitting the same fashion as the toilet. Stand-alone models, on the other hand, are generally used by facing toward the back of the bidet unit.

Bidets can be used to wash more than your genitalia, thighs, and buttocks. Because they resemble wash basins, they can also often be used to wash feet and other body parts when necessary. It really depends on the situation and your personal preference. Bidets can have a single tap dispensing warm water, or they may have multiple taps, capable of dispensing warm or cool water as needed. Bidets are especially popular in southern Europe, including in Spain, Italy, Greece, and Portugal. In some Latin American countries like Uruguay, Brazil, and Argentina, bidets are also widely used. The same is true for Asia and the Middle East, where both standalone and attached models are common fixtures in the bathroom.

The attachable toilet seat bidet is one of the more revolutionary advances in terms of bidet technology. These attachable forms attach directly and easily to regular toilet seats, providing the same benefits as traditional stand-alone bidets. Some of these bidets will have a single nozzle that functions universally for any purpose, while others have a dual set of nozzles, one for posterior cleansing and the other for feminine hygiene.

Seniors Regaining Independence Where They Need It Most
toilet

On average, people use the toilet at least 6 times a day. It is one of the most basic activities in life and is also one of the most common reasons for seniors to start losing their independence. As we age, cognitive and balance issues can make going to the bathroom difficult and in some cases, even dangerous. Seniors all over the world are now turning to the bidet for help.

What is a bidet?

Bidets have long been known as a hands-free way to wash sensitive areas with a stream of water. When using a bidet, there is no need to bend or twist your body to wipe. The bidet’s cleansing stream of water will do all the cleanup with little to no need to dry yourself.

Improves cleanliness

Seniors often experience a lack of proper cleanliness due to an inability to wipe after using the toilet. Bidets offer a cleansing spray of water for cleanup, only needing a small part to dry off. Some bidets will even include dryers that can eliminate the need for drying yourself altogether.

Brings independence in the bathroom

We spend most of our lives experiencing a bathroom trip alone. When we age, a solo bathroom trip can become challenging and, in some situations, dangerous. Bidets eliminate the need to wipe which can result in a senior being able to take bathroom trips alone once again. For many seniors, this is a huge help towards keeping their independence.

Easy to install

Bidet installation has become increasingly easy over the years and has resulted in customers not needing to call a plumber or electrician for help. The installation process can be done by hand and be completed in under an hour to modify your ordinary toilet with comforting bidet features.

Improves the quality of life

Take back your independence and clean in comfort with the new standard in bathroom hygiene. Bidets can provide the ability to enter the bathroom alone with safety and confidence. For many seniors, a bidet improves their quality of life with just one use.

Bringing International Ideas to America with Bidets

The bidet is a European invention, though both France and Italy commonly try to take credit for the idea. The word bidet is French in origin so this may indeed be where the fixture originated. The bidet was first used simply because bathing was not a daily occurrence. It typically happened about once a week, though some individuals may not have even managed that. This created a very pressing need for individuals to clean their genital area, and thus the bidet was born. The first bidets were little more than basins set in a wooden fixture like a chair so the water could be splashed onto the genitals.

The idea of the bidet has persisted long past the time of weekly bathing for many good reasons. This method of cleaning up after bowel movements is simply believed to be more sanitary. While this can certainly be viewed as a cultural difference, the fact of the matter in very scientific terms is that the bidet is better for personal hygiene. Some cultures rightly see toilet paper as somewhat primitive and definitely dirty. Dry paper is held directly in the hand and used to clean up fecal matter. This isn’t quite as efficient as using a clean stream of water.

The bidet applies a focused stream of water to the genital region to clean up after a bowel movement. The bidet can also be used for general personal hygiene. Women have the added option of a feminine wash that is typically used after urination. This feature can also be used for extra cleanliness any time it is needed. Freshening up is important, even in areas that aren’t openly discussed. The bidet makes it easy to clean up as needed without taking a full shower several times a day. It is widely accepted in many parts of the world that this is an effective way to wash.

In the United States, people are very unfamiliar with the idea of a bidet for genital cleaning. Some trepidation toward the idea stems from the misguided belief that it will be very uncomfortable to use. While it’s true that crouching over a traditional bidet does require some practice, the attachable bidet that’s available today makes bidet use quite simple. The nozzle protrudes from under the toilet seat, directs the water at the correct area, and provides a refreshing and gentle cleaning experience. The temperature and pressure are adjustable for dozens of different combinations. Bidet use for beginners has never been easier.

Benefits of Bidets for Pregnant Women

The bidet is a very useful addition to any bathroom because it provides enhanced personal hygiene with extreme ease of use. A bidet can be an especially useful tool for women who are expecting for a wide variety of reasons. If you’re pregnant and have been considering some bathroom remodeling, a bidet is a wonderful addition. You can even have a bidet toilet seat added to your bathroom with very little cost and effort. An attachable bidet can be installed by anyone following a very simple set of directions. No plumbers or electricians are needed and the results are very enjoyable and useful during pregnancy.

Women who are pregnant often experience hemorrhoids. These enlarged blood vessels in the anus can be very painful. With a bidet, the user can clean up after a bowel movement without actually touching the anus. This is a refreshing and comfortable way to deal with sore hemorrhoids. The bidet can be adjusted for a temperature and pressure level that’s most comfortable for the user. With both a posterior wash and a feminine wash, a bidet is a great tool for all-over genital hygiene. With a bidet, the user never needs to get her hands dirty or fuss with toilet paper and paper waste again.

The benefits of the bidet become more and more useful as the pregnancy progresses. In later stages, women may have trouble maneuvering around their large belly. With a bidet, using the restroom is still very easy. The user only needs to reach the controls to be able to get completely clean. There’s no bending, reaching, or wiping involved. A posterior wash will clean up after bowel movements and a feminine wash will clean up after urination. The feminine wash is also useful for maintaining good vaginal health. This simply applies a spray of water to the exterior of the genitals.

Finally, the bidet is a wonderful tool for women to use after childbirth. During this time, there can be a lot of discharge and bleeding. A bidet will help to keep the genital area clean. Wiping with dry toilet paper may just spread the mess, while the bidet does a much better job of washing the area out. The bidet is also a comfortable way for women to clean up after urination and bowel movements if they’re recovering from stitches or tears in the vaginal area. The cool, gentle touch of a bidet is ideal for this tender healing process.

Attachable Bidets for Any Bathroom

The attachable bidet makes the bidet a bathroom fixture that can be installed in virtually any bathroom. You no longer need to set aside a separate corner for a bidet. Instead, you can have this fixture installed right on your toilet seat. The bidet will use the same source of water as the toilet. Some bidets may also need a source of electricity, but outlets are typically within reach. There’s an attachable bidet to suit any needs as long as you know what you’re looking for. If you’re new to the idea of a bidet, there are several factors that will help you find the best product for your needs.

First, you should consider the type of toilet that you have. If the tank is separate from the toilet, then you have a two-piece model. This is the most common type of toilet. If the tank is not in a separate piece, you have a one-piece toilet. This will affect the types of bidets that are available to you. You should also check to see if your toilet seat is round or elongated. There are bidet models for all types of seats, but you should measure yours carefully to ensure that the bidet you select will fit correctly. Armed with these measurements, a sales representative can help you make the final decision.

There are many different types of bidets. Considering your needs may help you choose the right one. Consider these questions.

  • Do you have difficulty maneuvering in the bathroom? If so, a bidet with a wireless remote will ensure that you can always reach the controls.
  • Do you find the toilet to be cold and uncomfortable, especially in winter? A bidet toilet seat that’s heated will solve this problem and make the bathroom much more comfortable.
  • Do you suffer from constipation? Look for a bidet with a massage or pulsation feature. This type of water stream can ease constipation.
  • Do you have small children who have trouble finding the bathroom at night? Some bidet toilet seats come equipped with a nightlight beneath the rim that can solve this problem.
  • Are you intimidated by a lot of different features on the bidet? Look for a basic installation that has only a few settings. This will make the bidet more comfortable for new users.

There’s truly a bidet available for every type of user. Look around and find a design that you’re comfortable with. Pictures, extensive product descriptions, and even videos are available to help you make your choice. Bio Bidet customer representatives are happy to help if you need more information. There’s an attachable bidet available to suit any home.

Breaking Traditions When It Comes to Personal Hygiene

Traditions have a way of holding people back when it comes to changing such things as personal hygiene. Take for example the fact that many people still cling to baths instead of showers. Some people think sitting in water will get them cleaner than running water over their bodies. However, when you sit in water, you are sitting in the dirt that is coming off your body. Taking an occasional bath for relaxation is a great idea. Taking a bath all the time makes little sense. Clinging to tradition can be a real problem.

Another good example is the use of toilet paper instead of bidets. Many North Americans have a real aversion to the idea of using a bidet. Toilet paper use has been integral to the North American culture since the pioneer days. While the soft toilet paper of today was not in place, using other materials was. The idea of switching to a bidet is anathematic. However, the proof is in the pudding as they say. Bidet use actually cleans the rectal and genital areas better than toilet paper. Moreover, it prevents the hands from coming in contact with the contaminants. This switch in personal hygiene habits would make a big difference in health.

Some still use baking soda as a toothpaste. It does the job. However, it does not have the same benefits of modern toothpaste. Most modern toothpaste contain fluoride. That helps keep the teeth healthy and clean. Some have whitening agents to get the teeth whiter. Others offer extra ingredients to fight plaque and other oral plaque. Some still want the simple clean that baking soda brings. Like the proponents of toilet paper, they think the old way works the best. You will not change their minds. Yet breaking that tradition will have benefits.

Believe it or not, going back to traditional methods can be good in some cases. Using basic shampoo can actually be healthier for you than using shampoo and conditioner combinations. It is best for your hair not to use conditioner too often. When you think about it, using a bidet instead of toilet paper is getting back to basics as well. You are using the natural cleaning power of water. The water can do the job if you give it enough pressure and direct the pressure in the right direction. Get back to basics when the basics make sense. That is the way honor traditions the right way.

How to Use an Attachable Bidet Toilet Seat.

Learning how to use an attachable bidet toilet seat for the first time can be a little intimidating at first. Once you set the attachable bidet up on your regular toilet, it may seem a little strange and new to you at first. There are new nozzles, buttons, knobs and sprayers in place that you will have to grow accustomed to. Feeling nervous about learning how to use your attachable bidet toilet seat is completely and natural and normal. Once you become comfortable with your attachable toilet seat bidet, however, it will be truly beneficial for you and your health.

When it comes to operating a brand new attachable bidet toilet seat, the first thing that you should know is that nothing has to be intimidating or overwhelming. Nothing could be easier than using your brand new bidet toilet seat as long as you follow the directions and become acquainted with all of the controls. The controls for the water temperature and the water pressure should be easy and straight forward for you to use. The controls for other functions and features will be clearly explained in your manufacturer directions, letting you know exactly what to do and when.

Cleaning your attachable bidet toilet seat is also going to be relatively easy for you as long as you have a good idea of what you’re doing. In most attachable bidet toilet seat systems, the jets are nozzles are designed to be self-cleaning, which means that you just have to keep the outside and inside clean just like any other toilet.

How to Buy Your First Bidet.

Every use will be enjoyable and beneficial to your health, your hygiene and your general well being as long as you install, use and maintain the device properly over time.

There are couple things you need to consider before making a bidet purchase. The first item is the model of toilet you have. There are 4 basic models, one or two piece and elongated and non-elongated. It is important to make sure that whatever brand, style or model that it properly fits on your existing toilet. Another very important consideration is price. There are so many features the price of a bidet can vary from under one hundred dollars to several hundred.

Spending a little more money will help get something that is comfortable for you and your family to use.

While some features may come off as extravagant, there are several that you should consider important to have. One of these features is; adjustable water temperature. Different people like different temperatures and what’s just right for you may be too hot or too cold for others. Selecting a model with adjustable water pressure is a must have. While every day cleansing may not require high pressure, occasionally you might run into a situation where it is needed. When that situation arises you will be very happy to have spent the additional money. A drying feature can be a very integral part of your bidet experience. Just being clean is a fantastic sensation, but finishing with a gentle dry air really completes your bidet experience.

History of Bidets.

The concept of the bidet is several hundred years old. As history has progressed, the bidet has seen numerous technological advances, and many different types of bidet models have emerged over time. Just like with anything else, there are a variety of different types of bidet seating as a result of these developments. Understanding the different types of bidets and how they have developed over time is the best way to determine which bidet is best going to meet your needs. Understanding the long and interesting history of the standalone bidet and the attachable bidet is the best way to understand the purposes and uses of this unique and beneficial device.

The bidet was originally invented back in the 1700s. The first type of bidet ever to exist is the type that stands alone, separate from your toilet. These bidets, when they were first developed, were completed using porcelain and they had high costs associated with them. Because these bidet fixtures were not a part of the toilet, the bathroom required additional room in order to fit a second fixture, and bidets are nearly as large as traditional toilets, so you can imagine how much additional room is required. With this type of bidet, the person using the toilet would have to finish up on the toilet, then move over to the bidet in order to use it.

In the past, only high class families could own bidet systems, but this is rapidly changing. Modern bidet seating, especially those that attach directly to a traditional toilet is now coming down in price despite improving in terms of performance. So the newer, modern and high-performance types of attachable bidets are cost-effective while offering a wide variety of additional features and benefits that rely on electricity to deliver heat, warm water and a more comfortable experience. The history of the bidet is a long and interesting one, leading to many great improvements through the years.

Handheld Bidets.

There are a variety of different bidet options to choose from, and they all serve basically the same purpose. The only difference between the three primary types of bidets is the ease of use or the mechanism for use. For example, there are stand alone bidets that are separate from toilets, there are attachable bidets that you connect to your regular toilet, and finally there are handheld bidets that act like shower sprayers, allowing you to clean yourself on a portable basis. When you decide that you want a bathroom remodel with high-tech bidet seat, it is important to determine which of these choices is ideal for your unique situation.

When you first decide to start a bathroom remodel with high-tech bidet seat, you may be overwhelmed with the number of options that are available to you. Which type of bidet is right for you? There are benefits to each of these types of bidets, and so it is important to determine which set of benefits best suits your own needs. For example, with handheld bidets, you can point the nozzle in any which way you please, allowing for maximum cleaning power. If you have physical disabilities or mobility issues, using a portable bidet or a handheld bidet can be the best option for you.

On the other hand, if you are looking for a bidet that stays put for a bathroom remodel, then an attachable bidet toilet seat is generally best. Unless you have a lot of extra space to fit a standalone bidet, the best option is simply to attach a bidet to the toilet that you already have. This gives you all of the features, functions and benefits of a traditional bidet without requiring a complete remodel or forcing you to use two plumbing fixtures at the same time.

When planning a bathroom remodel with high-tech bidet seat, consider an attachable bidet seat. These bidet seats attach perfectly to standard toilets, though you will need to choose the right bidet seat for your specific type of toilet. Once you attach the bidet seat, the result is a combination toilet and bidet that will handle all of your cleaning needs without requiring a separate fixture. Some attachable bidet seats have handheld nozzles that you can use to clean yourself properly as well. Make sure that you choose a bidet seat that is going to meet your needs in order to best benefit from these unique devices.

Hot and Cold Bidets.

For many people, a first time experience with a bidet typically involves a standalone model and a non-electric spray model at that. This means the water probably came right out of the pipes, and the water was probably chilly. It may work just as well when it comes to cleaning your genitals and your posterior, but it may still have been a shock, and perhaps a little uncomfortable at the same time. Many people are afraid of using a cold water bidet because they believe that it cannot clean as well as a hot water bidet, but is this the case when it comes to attachable bidet toilet seats?

When it comes to cold water bidets and hot water bidets, here is the truth: Both cold water sprays and warm water sprays can generally clean you just as well. The way that the washing is conducted is by using the spray to forcibly remove the soiling from your skin, so temperature actually has very little to do with it. In general, warmer water can create a cleaner feeling, but that does not mean that it is actually producing cleaner skin. There is very little difference in the actual results between cold water and warm water attachable bidet toilet seats.

In general, warmer water can create a cleaner feeling, but that does not mean that it is actually producing cleaner skin. There is very little difference in the actual results between cold water and warm water attachable bidet toilet seats.

Many cold water attachable bidet toilet seats are actually lacking in other areas such as the benefits that electronic bidets provide you with. They take a very large leap over traditional bidets because they offer greater functionality. Electric attachable bidet toilet seats tend to offer additional controls for warm air dryers, soap dispensers, deodorizers, multiple jets and nozzles, adjustable jets and nozzles, heated seats and more. These benefits can be indispensible when it comes to providing you with a comfortable bathroom experience. If these features and functions matter, try them out, otherwise a traditional attachable bidet toilet seat may be ideal for you.

Bidet Seat for Handicapped Individuals.

One of the biggest benefits that are normally associated with bidet seats is that they are extremely beneficial to people that are handicapped. If you are handicapped or have a disability of any kind, then an attachable bidet seat can be beneficial to you by simplifying the cleaning process greatly. Nearly all bidet seats work out of the box for handicapped individuals. Bidet seats differ from traditional bidets in that they do not require the user to traverse from one fixture to another for cleaning. Therefore, if you are handicapped or disabled and you want to simplify cleaning yourself after using the toilet, an attachable bidet seat is ideal.

Most bidets can be quite helpful for to people that have a limited range of motion. Wiping becomes unnecessary as all of the cleaning functions are performed by a small adjustable nozzle. There is a lot less exertion required for use of a bidet because you do not have to strain or reach to wipe yourself or clean yourself after going to the bathroom. Instead, you simply have to use the adjustable knobs to turn on the nozzle water, washing yourself automatically. If you are disabled and do not have the capability to dry yourself with a rag or a wash cloth, then you should use an attachable bidet seat that comes equipped with a drying function. This will spray warm air onto your skin, drying it completely before you leave the bidet seat.

Other benefits of a bidet may include a reduction in the number of baths or showers a handicapped individual might feel the need to take to be clean. If you have trouble cleaning yourself after going to the bathroom, then you may always feel unclean, or like there is toilet paper residue, waste or germs left behind. If this is the case for you, then choosing a bidet seat intended for handicapped individuals is a smart move. This will help you get and feel cleaner, which is one of the primary purposes for using a bidet seat in the first place.

Many Bidet seats work with arm rests and grab bars that attach to the wall floor. While bidet seats don’t work well with seat extenders, they do work risers that attach to the base of the toilet. Shop around and determine which types of bidet seats are ideal for you and ask questions to make sure you buy a bidet seat that is specifically meant to help handicapped and disabled people get clean.

Bidet toilet seat maintenance.

If you are thinking about buying an attachable bidet toilet seat, one of the worries that you may have relates to maintenance for your toilet seat bidet. Are you worried about how much maintenance goes into having such a toilet seat bidet? If so, then here are the answers that you seek. Just like when it comes to most of the plumbing fixtures in your home, most of the small problems that may arise with a bidet toilet seat can be maintained by you at home. Being prepared for such an event is the best thing that you can do in the event of a plumbing issue.

Because of this, it would be a good idea for you to keep some very basic tools put away in your home, just so you can deal with these problems. A few problems are pretty routine, and you should be able to deal with them on your own. For example, low water pressure issues and leaks happen to most plumbing fixtures over time, they are nothing to worry about. In preparation, there are a few pieces of equipment that you should keep handy in a makeshift tool box for bidet repair. A makeshift toolbox for repairing your bidet will surely come in handy over time.

For example, you should have a plumber’s wrench, which will help you tighten or loosen joints, hoses and pipes. You should also have plumber’s tape, which is good for taping hose leaks. Additionally, keep pliers and a screwdriver on hand. The screwdriver is ideal for removing your bidet toilet seat and returning it to the toilet when you are done with your repairs. If you come across a problem that you cannot initially figure out, it might be a good idea to disassemble the bidet so that you can look at it prior to putting it back.

Because most attachable bidet units are intended to be installed in the DIY style, they usually come with instruction manuals. Within the instruction manual you should find a lot of really useful information about dealing with the inner workings of your bidet. If you are honestly not sure of what to do when it comes to the repair of your bidet, then the best thing that you can do is call in a professional to help you with the process. Calling a professional can negate the need for a lot of unnecessary repair work because it leads to a quicker diagnosis.

Bidet use and personal hygiene.

Personal hygiene relates primarily to maintaining healthy practices, especially in the sense of cleanliness. Grooming yourself is all about enhancing your physical appearance by improving your hygiene and removing imperfections from your appearance. In the bathroom, the concept of personal hygiene primarily refers to using the bathroom. Even when you feel clean after using the bathroom, it is hard to tell whether you have really removed all of the germs or not. This can be troublesome when you consider that the germs left behind can cause infection and other issues. If you want to be clean and germ-free, using a bidet can be beneficial.

The bidet is capable of being used both by men and women. It can used by healthy people, people with disabilities, adults and children. Bidet seats offer a hands-free washing experience that is superior to using toilet paper. Wiping can cause an irritating feeling when you use toilet paper, and so using a bidet can relieve this irritation while aiding in your personal hygiene. As a result, the bidet is gaining a great deal of popularity among many people, including senior citizens, disabled individuals and people that have incontinence and impaired motor function. You do not have to be disabled or have impairments to appreciate the benefits of a bidet seat, however.

The bidet is primarily used for washing and cleansing the anus and external genitalia and all of the skin around these areas. The bidet can also be used for cleaning other parts of the body when necessary. The addition of a bidet seat to a traditional toilet can turn any ordinary toilet into a place to wash your body and improve your personal hygiene. This is especially important for people with mobility issues that have difficulty thoroughly cleaning themselves while using the bathroom. If you have trouble reaching or moving while on the toilet, the addition of the bidet water jets can help you greatly.

Bidet attachment seats have a nozzle responsible for propelling an arc of water upward. This nozzle is generally angled specifically to connect with your genital area. Some attachable bidet models also have a warm jet of air designed to dry your body so that you do not have to use toilet paper at all. The toilet paper vs. bidet debate is solved, then. An attachable bidet negates the need for toilet paper and improves your hygiene in general, no matter who you are. Whether you are disabled or not, you can benefit from the use of a bidet attachment for your personal hygiene needs.

Bidets and Easing Hemorrhoids

An attachable bidet negates the need for toilet paper and improves your hygiene in general, no matter who you are. Whether you are disabled or not, you can benefit from the use of a bidet attachment for your personal hygiene needs.

If you want to clean yourself after using the bathroom without an intense amount of discomfort because of hemorrhoids, then an attachable toilet seat bidet is an option that is well worth your consideration. Hemorrhoid pain occurs when veins swell under the skin in the area that is directly around the outside and the inside of your anal sphincter.

This means that the benefits of such a device are twofold, improving the health of the area and relieving some of the pain that is associated with having hemorrhoids in the first place. If you are already suffering from hemorrhoids, then it is important to know that you can aggravate the condition even further if you do not take good care of the area. If you use toilet paper, you can quickly and simply exacerbate the situation, which is simply a waste.

If you do not clean your sexual parts thoroughly before and after you use them, it can actually put you at risk of developing irritations or infections. There may not be a correlation between a decrease in the risk of STD infection and use of a bidet, but because you can use an attachable bidet toilet seat to clean yourself after sex, you can remove bacteria and other things from your skin, decreasing other infections from occurring. There are a wide variety of different bacteria that can exist during and after sex, and these can create infections and irritations if you are not clean.

E. coli comes from fecal matter, and there are other types of bacteria that a romp in the bedroom can introduce to unwanted places. You can transmit these bacteria through any skin content, and so it is important to wash before and after sexual intercourse. This is where an attachable bidet toilet seat can be extremely beneficial for you. It will help you rinse your skin off completely, washing off a lot of this unwanted bacteria so that you are not transmitting it to your partner through sexual or intimate contact or having it transmitted to you by the same way.

You can use your attachable bidet toilet seat before you enjoy sexual intimacy with a partner as well as after, guaranteeing your cleanliness throughout the experience. If you want to enjoy your sexual experiences, then both you and your partner should be clean and healthy, and a bidet can be extremely helpful in making this possible for both of you.

Bladder Infections and Bidet Use

If you have ever had a bladder infection in your life, then you are probably aware of the fact that they are excruciatingly painful and can cause a whole lot of discomfort until they are eliminated. Bladder infections are also known as cystitis and urinary tract infections or UTIs. These infections are capable of affecting both men and women. The biggest cause for this type of infection is simply not keeping your downstairs area clean enough. If you are dealing with a UTI and you feel that this might be your problem, then it is time to consider the benefits of a toilet seat bidet.

The most common cause for a bladder infection is the bacteria known as E. coli. These bacteria live in your feces and in the feces of others. When this bacterium is allowed to remain on your skin, it can easily be transferred to your partner or be driven further up your urinary tube, which can cause a painful and serious infection that can spread into your kidneys and your bladder over time if you do not treat it. An ounce of prevention, however, can go a long way, and this is where the toilet seat bidet comes in.

One of the best possible reasons for you to use such a toilet seat bidet is to remove these harmful bacteria from your body. Regular toilet paper does not remove the bacteria so much as simply moves it around. When you wipe using toilet paper, you can be moving the bacteria around rather than eliminating them. By leaving remnants of waste and toilet paper behind, the bacteria are allowed to thrive on your skin, and it can be transferred to others or can be taken in by your urinary tract and converted into a serious irritation or infection.

Additionally, using toilet paper can cause irritation and abrasions, and this will actually make it easier for E. coli and other bacteria to get into your body. This means that there are plenty of reasons to avoid toilet paper in favor of using a toilet seat bidet. If you are serious about improving your personal hygiene and overcoming health issues relating to regular toilet and toilet paper use, then implementing the use of a toilet seat bidet is absolutely essential. Now is the time to consider the benefits that a toilet seat bidet can afford you with.

High tech bidet options

Additionally, using toilet paper can cause irritation and abrasions, and this will actually make it easier for E. coli and other bacteria to get into your body. This means that there are plenty of reasons to avoid toilet paper in favor of using a toilet seat bidet. If you are serious about improving your personal hygiene and overcoming health issues relating to regular toilet and toilet paper use, then implementing the use of a toilet seat bidet is absolutely essential. Now is the time to consider the benefits that a toilet seat bidet can afford you with.

While purchasing a bidet with all the options and bells and whistles a bidet can offer may not be cheap, the satisfaction gained from a simple trip to the toilet can easily make it worth many people’s while. Imagine yourself enjoying the heated seat, and often times adjustable spray pattern nozzle with full temperature control and fine adjustment of its pressure. Finish with air dry and mild built in deodorant to help eliminate any odor. Doesn’t this sound like absolute heaven when it comes to using the bathroom?

Most high end bidets are operated via a small control panel on the side or via wireless remote control. They may have a predefined setting for each user, as well as setting to override any presets it may have. Such fine control at the touch of a button makes it easy for you and your family to find the desired setting that you need to make your bidet experience a pleasant one. Not only do most high tech bidets have fully adjustable nozzles, spray patterns and very fine temperature control, but you may find a variety of options you were not aware of. Some may play gentle music during your bathroom visit to help relax you. Additionally some have dryer functions that are really nice after a gentle rinse. Some have hydraulic lids that can automatically open and close the seat for you (very useful if you live in a home where the seat is constantly left up!).

A lot of bidets these days have very helpful options for cleaning. In fact some may actually have a self cleaning option that can negate the need for regular cleaning and only require a deep cleaning every once in a while. One thing to look for is a bidet with replaceable nozzle parts. Over time they may become dirty and no longer look presentable, so users can simply remove the old one and replace with a fresh one making their bidet like new again.

The Eco friendliness of Bidets

There has been a lot of talk in recent years about what bidets are and how eco-friendly they can be. If you are eco-conscious and you are disappointed in your toilet paper usage, then it would be wise for you to consider the numerous benefits that are afforded to you by the attachable bidet toilet seat, also known as a toilet seat bidet.

These bidet seats easily allow for households to function on a day to day basis without having to rely on the wasteful aspects of toilet paper, making the attachable bidet toilet seat a truly smart and beneficial fixture in the home.

Next, consider your electricity footprint. Between the heated water, the heated air, the heated seats, remote controls, the electronic sensors and all of the other special features that your attachable bidet toilet seat can have, quite a bit of electricity is used and abused. As such, it will be prudent for you to try and conserve as much energy as you can if this is an option. For example, if you do not need the heated seat, turn it off. If cool water is okay, skip the warm. Skip any controls that are not necessary when operating your attachable bidet toilet seat and you will cut down on unnecessary usage of electricity.

Another way to make your attachable bidet toilet seat more environmentally and ecologically friendly is to keep it in good working condition. Make sure that you are performing regular maintenance and tune-ups so that the bidet is operating at its tip-top condition. If there are any leaks, you need to remedy them immediately so that you can avoid the wasting of water. Keeping your bathroom facility clean and tidy will improve your overall experience tenfold.

Is it time to buy a bidet?

Do you know what a bidet is? There are different types of bidet fixtures, but the best for most people is the attachable bidet toilet seat. The primary purpose of a bidet is to wash you off completely after using the bathroom on the toilet. Many people are talking about bidets of all kinds and the numerous benefits that they offer to their users, both in standalone and toilet seat forms. Do you think it is time to consider all of the health and wellness benefits of using such a bidet? Here are some indicators that it might be time for you to buy a bidet.

The first indicator that it may be time to buy an attachable bidet toilet seat is that you have once again run out of your stash of toilet paper during this same month. Are you ever going to realize that buying toilet paper is an absolute waste? When you install a toilet seat bidet, also known as a TSB or a washlet, you can say goodbye completely to ever running out of toilet paper again. No longer will you have to clean yourself up in the shower because toilet paper is sticking to your skin after you wipe yourself.

The second indicator that it may be time to buy an attachable bidet toilet seat is if you are having difficulty wiping yourself in the first place. If you have limited mobility or disability, if you are elderly or you simply have trouble reaching around to wipe, then a toilet seat bidet can be a godsend. When you have difficulty washing yourself, this makes the toilet seat bidet option well worthwhile because it simplifies the cleaning process without unnecessary straining or risking injury in the process. If you want to avoid hurting yourself while trying to keep yourself clean, it is time for you to buy a bidet.

The third indicator that it may be time to buy an attachable bidet toilet seat is if toilet paper is causing you unwanted irritation like hemorrhoids. If toilet paper is hurting you, causing rashes, causing irritations or exacerbating issues with hemorrhoids, then it is time for you to make the switch. There may be softer toilet paper, but toilet paper is a problem that cannot be solved with more toilet paper. Instead, switch to a bidet seat that will carefully cleanse you without any unnecessary abrasion.

Should I include a Bidet in my remodel?

If you are planning a bathroom remodel, now is your chance to decide whether or not you should make additions or subtractions or other changes to your space. Whether you are working with a large bathroom space or a small one, there are many different changes that you can make in order to improve the visual appeal and the functionality of your space. One of the questions that you may ask yourself is whether or not you should include a standalone bidet or an attachable bidet in your remodeled bathroom space. You should make decisions like these early on in the remodeling process.

The biggest consideration that you need to make is how much space you have. The amount of space that you have is going to have a large impact on what you can do with your bathroom remodel. When it comes to bidet installation, you basically have two different choices. Standalone bidet units look similar to toilets, but they function all on their own. Attachable bidet seats on the other hand just attach like a regular toilet seat to the toilet that you already have, allowing you to convert any traditional toilet into a combination bidet and toilet simply and easily.

Whether you have a large space or a small, using an attachable bidet is definitely a smarter choice in comparison to a standalone bidet. The reason is that using an attachable bidet seat is a lot simpler and more streamlined than transferring yourself from the toilet to a separate seating fixture. The standalone bidet can also be more awkward because you face the wall rather than away from it. The attachable bidet just looks like a regular toilet seat, however, it has an extra nozzle or other additions inside.

If you are unsure of whether or not you want to add a bidet in your bathroom remodel, just wait and add an attachable bidet seat later when you are ready. This is a fixture that you can easily add or remove as desired, so there is less commitment involved than if you were to install a full-sized bidet unit in your bathroom. So not only will you save space, but you also add greater functionality and more flexibility when it comes to your toilet and bidet use, which is a smart move if you are not sure whether or not a bidet is right for you.

Teaching your child to use a bidet

The purpose of a bidet is to help you clean your posterior and your genitals following using the toilet. The benefit of a toilet seat bidet or an attachable bidet is that you can turn your ordinary toilet into a combination toilet and bidet. This is the best option if you have small children in the home because you can simultaneously train your child to use the bidet and the toilet at the exact same time. When you are potty training your child, it is a good idea to also introduce them to the concept of using a bidet, since small children can have trouble when it comes to wiping adequately.

The best way to potty train your child is to never teach them how to use toilet paper in the home. This is not ideal for outside of the home, but in the home, your child can learn to benefit from the bidet, where they will get a cleaner experience. This is especially beneficial for young children, as they will have difficulty cleaning themselves for the first few years that they are using the potty on their own. Bidets facilitate quick and easy cleaning, and so they should not be difficult for young children to learn.

The convenience that is associated with using a bidet can make the potty training process even easier since it means using the facilities, then using the bidet feature, then be done, simple as that. There is no toilet paper to deal with, wipe with or throw away, and there are no awkward or difficult areas to reach in trying to clean one’s self. Children may have difficulty balancing on the toilet while trying to wipe, but a bidet can make this a lot simpler just by doing the cleaning part automatically.

The important part about showing your child how to use the potty and the bidet is to explain the controls. You may want to place stickers on the buttons and knobs so your child knows which ones to use and which ones not to use. It will take some time and patience in order to get this process right, but it will be truly rewarding when your young child is using the potty and the bidet properly, which means that he or she is clean and free of germs and the potential for bacteria and illness. If your child is learning how to use the potty, make sure you teach the use of the bidet as well.

How to Clean your Attachable Bidet Seat

One of the biggest concerns among people that use toilet paper for bathroom use, when they first become aware of the bidet and how it works, is how they are supposed to clean the device. Since the purpose of the attachable bidet seat is to shoot water into your most sensitive regions, it is fair to be anxious about the cleanliness of your attachable bidet. If your bidet is not hygienic, then it makes sense that infection or other issues could arise. This makes keeping the toilet seat bidet clean an absolute necessity, but how do you make it happen?

There is good news. Bidets are considered to be the most sanitary and the most eco-friendly method of cleaning all of your private areas, and the opinion is valid for many good reasons. For example, unless you are buying a third-rate, poorly designed model, the dirty water that has touched your posterior is going to go right down into the toilet rather than splashing back on the nozzle, so you do not have to worry about the nozzles becoming unsanitary, or the water doing anything but cleansing you completely from end to end. Toilet seat bidets from the most popular manufacturers are actually designed to be maintenance free.

What it means for these designs to be maintenance free is that there is either going to be a self-cleaning feature, or the nozzles and jets are going to be designed to simply be replaced if necessary. You should never actually have to labor to clean your toilet seat bidet, the work should be done for you automatically. If you do want to clean your attachable bidet seat, however, then simply use a damp cloth to wipe down all of the areas. There is generally a quick-release function on most toilet seat attachable bidets which means you can take the thing apart and clean it easily if desired.

Most bidet seats along these lines have external iodine or carbon water filters. If so, it is advised that you replace them once every six months or so. Most manufacturers recommend that you use an iodine filter if you are looking to get the most out of your attachable bidet. So the bottom line here is that you should not have to clean your attachable bidet, but if you do choose so, the process is easy and painless, and the only maintenance required is to change your filters occasionally and you are set.

Questions about Bidets

There are a lot of questions floating around when it comes to bidets. The reason is primarily because many people do not understand how they work or why they are so beneficial to health, hygiene, and general well being. Here are some of the more frequently asked questions and the answers that you have been waiting to. First and foremost, what is a bidet? Bidets are pronounced as “bee-day” and they are devices that are designed to clean the rectal and genital areas using a jet or spray of water. Some bidets even have the capability to add a mild soap product to the water stream with a single button press, increasing the capabilities of these unique devices.

What is the history of the bidet? The name is derived from 15th-century French ponies, but the European bidet was originally developed in the 19th-century. The original device was constructed from porcelain and was designed for cathartic, purgative and contraceptive purposes. The porcelain shape forced straddling in order to use it, and this is why the bidet word was used to refer to the device. The original bidet was a standalone device, and they tended to be expensive, large and even difficult to install. Through modest origins, the bidet has developed into a unique and highly desirable contraption.

What is a bidet toilet seat? The original bidet was a standalone unit that looked like a toilet but without flushing capabilities. Users had to finish on the toilet, then move to the secondary device for cleaning. Bidet toilet seats, on the other hand, are installed directly onto the toilet, creating one single streamlined fixture to use rather than requiring two different units in the bathroom. This saves on space and cost while introducing a variety of new features that make going to the bathroom easier, more comfortable and even more enjoyable than ever before.

Is a bidet worth the money? Do you think having good health is worth a few hundred dollars of investment? The prices can vary significantly from non-electric to electric, standalone to a toilet seat and even portable models. What is important to consider is that this is an investment toward good genital health, good rectal health, and good overall well being. Bidets can heal inflammation and can help to improve genital and rectal health overall, making it well worthwhile as an investment. If you have doubts, buy a cheaper model first, then graduate to a better model over time.

Setting up the Bidet unit

The first thing that you should know about buying a bidet toilet seat is that you get what you pay for. When you buy a reputable brand, you end up with a reputable bidet toilet seat. An attachable bidet toilet seat from a brand with a solid track record will offer you the usability and functionality that you seek, making it a worthwhile investment that will pay for itself over time. If you are buying an attachable bidet seat, then the seat should come with instructions that will explain how you can install it. If you are buying a standalone bidet, you can expect to have to hire a professional to help you with the installation.

When you buy and set up a bidet unit, you need to consider the features that are really important. For example, if you have a bidet toilet seat that has a built-in water heater is going to give you a really big advantage in the form of warm water instantly, but you are going to need to have a specific outlet, a GFI outlet, in order to take advantage of such a function. If you do not have such an outlet, then you will have to bring in an electrician to make it happen. These are considerations that you are going to need to make when it comes to choosing and buying the right bidet toilet seat for your needs.

If you choose a bidet that does not have a built-in heater for your water, then the water is going to run cold until the cold is flushed out in place of the warm. This can take up to a minute of running water until the water runs warm, depending on what type of water line is attached between your water heater and your bidet toilet seat. If you are okay with using a cold water wash, then you do not have to worry about the built-in heater and GFI outlet. Just make sure that you consider this when choosing and setting up the ideal bidet toilet seat for your use.

Another consideration is whether you want a heated seat or not. If you want a heated seat, then once again, you are going to need a GFI outlet in order to make it work. Still, this is an excellent feature if you live in a cold climate and do not want to sit on a cold toilet and bidet combination.

Fast facts about Bidets

The bidet is a unique invention that allows for quick, easy and effective washing of the anus, buttocks, thighs, and genitals following using the toilet. Both standalone bidet fixtures and attachable bidet fixtures, also known as toilet seat bidets, are beneficial for a wide variety of reasons. If you become well versed on the subject of bidets you will see that there are numerous benefits and advantages to their use, and the only drawback is the initial investment, which ends up paying for itself over time when you consider saving on toilet paper costs and improving your overall hygiene and health.

Bidets can cost anywhere from $29 dollars to $3000 depending on what type of bidet you buy. The attachable bidet models are the most cost-effective choice because they tend to cost between $29 and $300 depending on what features you prefer. Simpler models are cheaper and offer excellent functionality, but the increased functionality also has numerous benefits worth considering. With many bidet models, you never have to touch or wipe yourself at all, because there is a built-in warm air dryer, meaning that you end up much cleaner and never have to worry about spreading germs at all, which is one of the greatest drawbacks associated with toilet paper usage.

Many attachable bidet models have anti-bacterial properties and are essentially self-sterilizing. Most attachable models are specifically designed to attach to any existing toilets, meaning that they are largely universal. They make use of the existing water supply without requiring you to do any additional plumbing work. Standalone models require that you install them, requiring additional plumbing work which can be a hassle. Bidets are beneficial for many medical conditions, and they are classified by the FDA as being durable medical equipment in many cases.

By eliminating the use of toilet paper, bidets actually use less water. Bidet toilet seats work well with low flow toilets. Since you do not have to worry about flushing paper waste, your toilet does not have to do nearly as much work. By eliminating the use of toilet paper, bidets can save millions of trees per year worldwide. Bidets actually happen to be much cleaner in comparison to using toilets in the traditional sense with toilet paper, and so are well worth considering. The attachable bidet models can be added to your normal toilet for a seamless operation that you can begin using today.

Evolution of the Bidet

The bidet is a type of personal cleansing method that utilizes a stream of water to clean the body in place of toilet paper after using the toilet. Using a bidet rather than toilet paper is beneficial in many ways, including when it comes to increased hygiene and eco-friendliness. The bidet concept was originally developed during the 19th century, but the “bidet” term is actually older, because it was used in 15th century France to refer to the pet ponies that French royalty kept. The Europeans are responsible for developing the first porcelain cleaning devices for cathartic, purgative and contraceptive reasons.

The reason the device was called a bidet is that the seating method resembled sitting on a pet pony. Over time, the classic bidet evolved significantly, becoming more of a cleaning method than a contraceptive method. It began to parallel the same heightened sense of hygiene and sanitation of the modern world. Over the span of several decades, the bidet concept has become one that is welcomed in many homes, and not necessarily looked at as an odd device. Throughout the history of Asia, the bidet has been looked at as a method of increasing longevity because, in Asia, regular bladder and bowel habits are believed to be an important tenet of longevity.

This same concept is starting to appear in modern medicine as well, primarily because an increasing number of health issues and illnesses are becoming apparent as gastrointestinal related and genito-urinary related. Some of these include constipation, hemorrhoids, cancers of the gastrointestinal tract, prostatitis, infections of the urinary tract as well as gynecological issues. When you consider all these issues, it should make sense that using a bidet and keeping yourself clean down below would benefit your health in a number of different ways.

In the past, getting a bidet was not easy because it meant installing a completely new unit in the bathroom. Small bathrooms could not hold the additional plumbing and the space-hogging bidet system. Modern bidets are no longer standalone units, but now most of them attach directly to a regular toilet. What this allows for is seamless integration between the toilet and the bidet so that you can use both together. Today’s modern bidets are more cost effective and much more flexible in terms of what they offer, so it has become easier than ever to acquire an effective bidet system for your home.

Different Kind of Bidets

There are a number of different types of bidets, simply because the concept has been evolving since its inception. The bidet concept is actually several hundred years old, and as the concept has grown and progressed, many different types of bidets have emerged. As with anything else in the world, you need to find the right options for you when you consider the different types of bidets. For example, is the attachable bidet the right bidet seat for you, or are you better suited for a standalone model? Is a bidet the right option for you at all? Consider these things when you go shopping for a toilet or bidet option.

You can only take advantage of the benefits of these devices when you choose the right option for your needs. For this reason, you should list out the benefits and the drawbacks of each type of bidet. For example, there are electric bidets, non-electric bidets, standalone bidets, and attachable bidets. Each of these types of bidets is going to have its own collection of pros and cons, but they depend largely on your own personal needs and situation. For example, if you are disabled or have mobility issues, then an attachable, electric bidet is usually best. Attachable bidet seating allows for seamless use between the toilet and the bidet, and electronic controls simplify their use even further.

Standalone bidet models do have their benefits, but they also take up more space and require more effort in order to use them. This does not mean that they are less beneficial, but if you have mobility issues, a disability or have difficulty moving around at all, then it can be beneficial to combine your toilet and bidet used together rather than having to travel from one device to the other.

The non-electric bidet does not require the use of electricity, and so it tends to be significantly cheaper in comparison to electric models. The downside is that it will not have all of the features that a modern, high tech bidet is going to have. Some of the attachable bidet seats that use electricity have all kinds of different options for you to use, including heated air for drying, warm water, heated seating, and adjustable controls. This makes the bidet experience more enjoyable and is definitely a perk when you consider the different types of bidets that are available to you.

Cleaning Diaper with Bidet

There are many additional benefits that bidet toilet seats can provide beyond simply cleaning your posterior and your genitals. For example, if you are thinking about buying an attachable bidet toilet seat, then consider that you can use it for more than just going to the bathroom.

Many people use a regular attachable bidet toilet seat as what is known as a diaper sprayer. Dirty diapers are a serious problem with moms that use recyclable diapers, which is the primary reason why people turn to disposable types. A bidet can simplify this process significantly, however.

Consider this: An attachable bidet toilet seat is attached to your ordinary toilet and has a beneficial spray nozzle attached. If you run a dirty diaper over the nozzle, the water jet will remove fecal matter and other waste from the diaper, allowing for you to wash it much more easily.

Ordinary bidet models will not allow this, because they are not intended for actual solid waste. But when you have an attachable bidet toilet seat on, the other hand, the waste simply goes down the toilet as normal. This is an excellent way for you to clean baby diapers while getting more use out of your attachable bidet toilet seat.

Because the use and popularity of bidets are constantly growing, it should make total sense why people are finding more and more ways to get used out of their attachable bidet toilet seats. This is a really specialized but practical way to use the bidet because it allows you to remove the soiling off of a reusable baby diaper.

Rather than putting baby soiling in the washing machine with other laundry, you can rinse them thoroughly in the bidet and the toilet, a fixture that is meant to handle poof of all shapes and sizes.

Handheld bidets are also beneficial for this purpose because they have portable sprayers. What really matters is that you hold the diaper over the toilet so that the waste can go down the drain properly. If you are looking for additional ways that you can benefit from the use of an attachable bidet toilet seat, or if you are looking for more reasons to buy one, then consider this interesting but practical method of getting the most out of your bidet.

If you have babies, the bidet seat will prove to be essential as a part of your household.

Cleanliness and the Bidet

If you speak to a proctologist, a physician or a gynecologist about the benefits of the attachable bidet toilet seat, you will probably hear a lot about the benefits that they can afford you. Using a bidet to wash after you use the toilet is beneficial to both your health and your hygiene.

These bidet toilet seats allow you to wash your anus, your genitals, and your perianal area much more quickly and easily than if you were to take a shower or a bath. Taking a shower or a bath wastes time and water, but using a bidet can get you clean quickly with less waste.

Both men and women can benefit from the cleanliness opportunities that an attachable bidet toilet seat can offer. Women can find a bidet extremely helpful especially during the menstrual cycle because this allows her to cleanse herself thoroughly on her outer genitals during her menstrual period. Both women and men that have a sensitive anus can benefit from using a bidet because toilet paper is irritating to your skin which can cause infections, abrasions, and small cuts. The more that you use toilet paper, the more irritation there will be. An attachable bidet toilet seat can eliminate these irritations by cleansing these areas without friction from toilet paper.

The majority of us are raised to believe that toilet paper is simple enough, but is it really enough in terms of cleanliness? Think about what is left behind on your skin after you use the restroom. Will toilet paper really wash it all away with a simple wipe? The bacteria that are left behind after using the toilet can make you sick or cause infection.

Using an attachable bidet toilet seat can wash away much of this bacteria, giving you a cleaner experience. If you want to feel truly clean after going to the bathroom, this is the way to do it.

Many people that use toilet paper will eventually develop problems from its use, such as hemorrhoids for example. This is largely due to the fact that toilet paper is abrasive, and it can cause recurring problems that you will have great difficulty eliminating. Not only is using a bidet much gentler, but it will also leave you feeling much more refreshed than if you were to use toilet paper alone.

The benefits of attachable bidet toilet seats are numerous, including increased good hygiene and good health.

Personal Hygiene – It’s Good for You

Personal hygiene goes much deeper than just washing your hands after using the restroom. With all that happens in a bathroom, it’s naïve to think that your hands are the part of your body most in need of a washing afterward.

While many people in the United States still find the thought of using a bidet to be awkward or downright off-putting, many others are coming around to the benefits of using a bidet for cleansing after using the restroom. While it might seem time-consuming, good hygiene is always worth the time and effort. Think about how offended you might be if someone shook hands with you and then announced that they hadn’t washed their hands after using the bathroom. Not using a bidet is tantamount to that if you’re serious about good hygiene.

When the French first invented bidets (the French word “bidet” means “pony.”) the early bidets resembled squat, little ponies, and were “ridden” like ponies), they were created for the rich and those who could afford proper personal hygiene. But, as time passed, the idea of using a bidet spread all over the world and many other cultures contributed to their evolution.

They were made easier to mount. They were made to work using warm water. Features such as warm air dryers and deodorizers were introduced. The bidet of today is far more technically advanced than that first wooden “pony” ridden by French royalty.

These innovations in the design of the bidet also improve their health benefits. The use of warm water in a bidet can improve bowel movements.

Personal Hygiene – The Benefits of Using a Bidet

When it comes to personal hygiene, most people are content not to discuss this sensitive subject.

While it’s admittedly not a great topic of conversation, especially in mixed company, there are still people who just can’t help raving to others about their bidets. While the bidet is still slowly gaining in popularity in the United States, it’s quickly becoming de rigueur all over Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. Anyone who uses one can tell you why: it offers you unparalleled cleansing. And, on top of that, there may be added health benefits to using a bidet regularly as well.

Bidets, as they are manufactured today owe a great debt to a variety of cultures that contributed their own innovations to the design as the bidet began to evolve. The French contributed the original idea of a way to cleanse yourself while seated.

They also contributed the name “bidet,” which is also the French word for “pony,” which the first bidets were thought to resemble. Japan contributed to the discovery that the use of a bidet can have health benefits, such as better personal hygiene and the reduction of the risk of getting hemorrhoids. The Japanese also contributed to the idea of a toilet that incorporates a bidet. And America has perfected that idea.

The BioBidet is the latest innovation in the evolution of the modern bidet. This personal hygiene system is integrated into what could quite possibly be the world’s most technologically advanced toilet seat. It’s easy to install and easy to remove, should a situation call for its removal.

You also get all the benefit of a bidet with all the functionality of a toilet, and without having to make room in your bathroom to accommodate both. You can have it all by integrating the BioBidet onto your home toilet.

Getting a BioBidet can be something of a luxury; it’s true. But fewer luxuries come with as many health benefits as a bidet. With the regular use of a bidet, you’ll keep hemorrhoids at bay. You’ll find that your bowel movements are more regular and easier.

And while you may start using it for the sake of personal hygiene, but you’ll keep using it because of the comfort factor. Nothing beats a warm cleansing while seated on a warmed seat, followed by a warm air dry, especially on a cold winter day. So get it for the health benefits. Keep it for your comfort.

Bidet – For Your Health and Hygiene

A bidet is a plumbing fixture that is intended for personal cleansing. Many people are uncomfortable with the topic of personal cleansing, but they might find that not thinking about personal cleansing can result in far less comfortable conditions.

You can just as easily uninstall it if you decide that you want to move it to a different location or even that you don’t want it anymore. And if you have guests that have never seen a bidet before, it’s a little easier to explain the BioBidet, since it is attached to something that your guests will recognize and understand, instead of a strange fixture that they’ve never seen.

People have mistaken bidets for toilets, urinals, hand-washing stations, and even drinking fountains. But there won’t be any such mix-ups with the BioBidet.

Personal Hygiene-Predictions for Personal Hygiene Advancements

With the spread of technology, many changes are in the works when it comes to personal hygiene. In North America, many are reluctant to use technology in the bathroom. However, that is starting to change. Most Americans are anathematic to the idea of using a bidet. However, science is proving that using a bidet will get you cleaner than using toilet paper. For those who want to prevent germ spread, the choice is obvious. Those are the ones leading the way when it comes to switching from toilet paper to bidet use in the homes of North America. Bidets as personal hygiene gadgets are another reason for use spreading.

Bidets are one area where personal hygiene will evolve. The bidets used most commonly in North America are not the ones seen in Europe or South America. Most often, the bidets in North America are ones attached to the toilet. That option offers the benefits and convenience of bidet use without the need to do a major remodel to add a bidet to an existing bathroom. The only extra cost might be to run an electric outlet to the toilet area to run a bidet attachment that uses electricity. This combination of toilet and bidet means that a person can get clean without knocking down a wall to accommodate a traditional bidet.

Multiple use products are another trend in personal hygiene. When adding an item to your hygiene routine, getting more than one benefit from it helps it gain traction in popularity. With the bidet, for example, you want more than just a nice jet of water going into the perianal area. Getting a bidet that offers deodorization, air drying, and a heated seat provides more benefits. This proliferation of options makes these attachable bidets more popular with people who want multiple functionalities.

Quicker is the name of the game when it comes to real world life. People do not want to spend too much time on the mundane parts of life. When using the bathroom, taking out typical steps is the answer. Using a bidet does multiple things at once. It will clean the rectal and genital areas. It also keeps the hands clean in the process. You will not need to wash your hands afterward. Getting cleaner and doing it quicker shows why personal hygiene is faster with an attachable bidet. You will also get better results with it as well.

Personal Hygiene-Four Reasons to Add a Bidet Attachment to Your Toilets at Home

Personal hygiene must be at the top of this list. Toilet paper does not do a thorough job. You will not find any science or research that denies that fact. You will find some fluid or particulates left behind when you use toilet paper. Those leftovers leave an unclean feel in the genital and rectal areas. Using toilet paper is not sanitary. Your hands are down in the area where the nasty stuff is. You will get something on your hands. Using a personal bidet will help avoid all these issues. It will clean the area thoroughly without the need to put your hands down into the toilet bowl.

Safety is another reason. The bacteria and other microbes present in fecal matter can cause all sorts of illnesses. Using an attachable bidet will promote a higher level of personal hygiene. Some microbes can cause infections. Others spread diseases like the plague. While most of these microbes are not a problem inside the gastrointestinal tract, when they escape that environment, they become a potential hazard. Recent outbreaks of food poisoning can trace directly back to fecal contamination at some point in the process. Take no chances and keep your family safe with a bidet.

Environmental impact is another solid reason. You want the personal hygiene improvement angle. However, being able to make a positive impact on the environment is also a good thing. Bidets take toilet paper out of the waste stream. Toilet paper takes a great deal of water, wood, and fuel to manufacture and transport. You also quite often wash your hands after using the toilet. Bidets, on the other hand, use a minimal amount of water. You can get models that use water pressure instead of electricity. You will have a positive impact on the environment with bidets.

Gadgets are another reason to invest in a bidet. If you like gadgets, you will want a bidet model that comes with all the bells and whistles. You can get a remote control to handle the actions performed by the bidet. You can get a built-in dryer function to dry yourself. The heated toilet seat makes going very comfortable. You can get deodorizing functions that will keep the smells under control. Dual nozzles, warm water, and adjustable pressure are the basics. The rest is just gadget candy in the world of personal hygiene. Get your candy order in today and start reaping the rewards.
