For those who have never been exposed to them and do not know how to use them, bidets can appear to be odd and, for many people, something to be avoided. We’re here to say, “just relax”, they are quite simple to use. First, understand that their sole function is to enhance your personal hygiene routine and clean the body’s private parts after using the lavatory.
For many households, the bidet has been number one when it comes to maintaining good hygiene standards in the bathroom. Bidets are very similar to toilets, with the added benefit of having a separate water source which is strategically directed to provide effective washing following the use of the commode. The bidet is an excellent device for personal hygiene for the entire family.
A lack of familiarity with the bidet may keep many people from using it. However, don’t let prevent you from enjoying the many advantages the bidet has to offer. Simply put, you sit on the bidet as you would the commode, and slowly adjust the strength of the water source until the spray is providing a comfortable water cleansing.
There are bidet attachments and freestanding models. Some of the features include heated seats, built-in air dryer, heated water access and even remote controls. Regardless of how much you may spend, they are all designed to provide a gentle, water cleansing experience for the user.
Regular use of a bidet can assist in providing a dramatic increase in improved hygiene, and an impressive reduction in the spread of common contaminants occurring with standard bathroom use. It has been proven that using the bidet is considerably more hygienic than just plain toilet paper can ever be.
Water cleansing is a must, particularly for hemorrhoid sufferers, and the bidet provides the solution for optimum cleaning as well as physical relief and comfort.
You can purchase bidets in many shapes and designs, including as an attachment to your present commode. The range of options is extremely broad, as is the range of prices, and caters to every preference, sensitivity and budget. So whether you are custom building a new home and want separate bidet fixtures installed in each bathroom, or you are upgrading your current facilities, or you simply want an affordable way to quickly install an efficient bidet attachment, your need and desire can be fulfilled. In fact, some companies have created clever and effective bidet attachments which can be added to your current standing toilets so you can affordably and quickly have the improved hygiene and health benefits of a bidet.
