Why Is A Bidet Good For You?
First and foremost, a bidet is a bathroom fixture designed to keep your rear area clean, normally used after using the toilet. It’s primary purpose is to wash your lower region after you urinate, after you’re done with no.2, or even if you have a bowel movement. But more importantly, it eliminates the need for toilet paper.
Some bidets are installed/attached to your toilet itself, either affixed to the side of the bowl or with a detachable hose, while some are standalone fixtures (referred to as a hand bidet). And while bidets are more common in some parts of the world than others, they offer various benefits that make them a good addition to any bathroom.
So let’s see what are the benefits a bidet brings to us.
BIDETS ARE MORE HYGIENIC THAN TOILET PAPER.
You might think that solely relying on toilet paper is sufficient enough to keep your rear clean from bacteria and germs. Well, that’s not entirely true as it can leave behind traces of fecal matter and bacteria, which can potentially lead to infections and other health problems. Bidets, on the other hand, use water to clean the area, which is much more effective at removing bacteria and other kinds of germs. This means that people who use bidets are less likely to experience infections or other health problems due to poor hygiene.
BIDETS ARE ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY.
Producing toilet papers require trees, chemicals, and lots of water and energy. Using a bidet eliminates the expenditure of those resources. Whereas if you opt to go for bidets, it only uses a small amount of water to clean the area, making it much more sustainable and eco-friendly. More, by using a bidet, you can help reduce environmental impact and conserve natural resources.
BIDETS ARE MORE COMFORTABLE THAN TOILET PAPER.
Did you know that wiping can cause chafing and tiny cuts — a concern that is washed away with a bidet. Toilet paper can at times be rough and irritating to the skin, especially for those with sensitive ones. With a bidet, it allows the use of a gentle stream of water to clean the area, providing a much more soothing and comfortable experience.
BIDETS CAN SAVE YOU MONEY.
An average household can easily spend hundreds of ringgits just on toilet paper alone each year. Of course, the initial cost of purchasing a bidet will definitely be higher, but in the long run, it will definitely be an investment worthwhile. As mentioned, bidets require less toilet paper, which means you will have to buy it less often. Moreover, bidets can help reduce the risk of plumbing issues, which can be costly to resolve.
Overall, bidets can arguably be considered more sanitary than your traditional bottom-cleaning methods. And it definitely brings way more benefits to you and your health than just using toilet paper.
