Designed to clean your sensitive areas after urinating or defecating, a bidet sprays fresh water to wash away any residue left on your skin. Compared with wiping, many people find bidets are much gentler on their skin than using toilet paper and are used as the predominant toilet systems for many countries across the world.
Improved Personal Hygiene
Using a bidet seat is a cleaner, more hygienic way of using the bathroom. Compared with simply using tissue paper, using water and soap to clean yourself after using the toilet is far more hygienic. Bidets typically reduce the levels of bacteria in urine, removing any residue or dried tissue paper that would ordinarily be left behind, preventing the risk of UTI’s. With a bidet, you are guaranteed to feel much cleaner, healthier and more hygienic compared to the traditional wiping method of tissue paper.
As mentioned, a bidet will reduce your over-reliance on using toilet paper. Not only will this improve your comfort and personal hygiene, but it will also significantly decrease the amount of paper you flush away, which can be beneficial to the environment. Not only are you shrinking the amount of toilet paper you use and flush away, but you are also helping to reduce the transportation and bleaching process required for the manufacturing of toilet paper. Bleaching toilet paper produces a byproduct called dioxin which is a harmful substance to both humans and animals, using a bidet avoids the use of such chemicals or processes.
Using dry toilet paper over a bidet is much less comfortable and more damaging to your skin. If you struggle with skin irritation problems, using warm, clean water is a much better solution for your skin, meaning your visits to the bathroom will be considerably more comfortable and relaxing. If you suffer from hemorrhoids or other issues, then using a bidet could be a far better choice for your needs. To make your bidet even more comfortable, you can vary both the heat and intensity of the water stream, as well as the option to direct the water where you’d like, or where feels most soothing. This means you can soothe the sensitive areas easily, reducing the risk of further inflammation and discomfort. Typically, bidets also come with air dry features, to both clean and dry your sensitive areas without the need for paper.
Bidets are also hugely beneficial for those suffering from a disability or mobility issue, removing the need to bend when wiping and allowing for a more comforting, simplified experience.
