Ah, the bidet. Beloved by some and misunderstood by many. These days, with growing concerns about the environment and health, people are converting from dry, nasty old toilet paper to bidets in droves. And it isn’t just a fad; people from all over Asia and Europe have been using bidets since the dawn of modern plumbing, and their pipes are all the healthier for it. America’s just been lagging behind all this time.
Have you been thinking about joining the bidet revolution? Here are five reasons you should, and soon:
1. Bidets are cleaner.
Think about washing your hands after doing something particularly messy. You use soap and water to wash your hands—you don’t just wipe them off with a piece of dry paper and assume it’s all good. (At least, we really hope you don’t.) So why should your butt be any different? Bidets don’t just give you a feeling of freshness; you’re actually clean and germ-free.
2. Bidets mean healthier bottoms
And not just because they clean your bottom better. Listen, your bottom is one of the most sensitive areas of your body, and toilet paper can be chock full of chemicals and all sorts of nasty things. Paper is awfully abrasive and can leave you with little tears down there, where all sorts of germs and nasties can get in, causing hemorrhoids, abscesses, rashes, and fungal infections
3. Bidets are best for women and new mothers
If you’ve ever been on a period, you’ll know how things can get a bit uncomfortable down there after a long day of breaking glass ceilings. Bidets can help keep you fresh all day long. New mothers will also reap the benefits of portable bidets. You don’t have to carry around giant packs of wet wipes in your diaper bags anymore—all you need is one portable bidet and you and baby are all set!
4. Bidets help us save trees.
About 37 gallons of water are used to make one roll of toilet paper, and nine million trees are cut down every year to keep up with demand. Maybe that’s just us, but it sounds like a heck of a lot of resources wasted on wiping your bottom.
5. Bidets are better for our waterways.
By now you’re probably thinking, “Well, I’ll just use wet wipes! They’re soft and gentle and clean better than dry toilet paper, right?” We hope, for the sake of our world’s sewage system, that you’ll think again. Wet wipes aren’t biodegradable, and they pose a huge problem for our sewage systems. They get caught up in horrific blobs of waste, fat, and other non-biodegradable detritus called “fatbergs.” In fact, in 2017, they found a fatberg under Whitechapel, London, that weighed over 130,000 kilograms.
