So after watching the madness I decided to finally try a Bidet. In case you don’t know what that is, it goes on your toilet and shoots clean water at the exit. I’ve heard good things but have always been hesitant.
It’s on its way and shall be here Tuesday. I have alerted the family that dad has saved their world once again, so use the remaining TP sparingly until Amazon man shows up.

If any of you have one and would like to pass along positioning tips or other things I haven’t thought of, please pass them along.

I will now see all (some) of you on the other side of this apocalypse!

Flush and spray...

I had a real bidet in my house once. I found it to be not as effective as I would have liked.

Basically, your entire butt is covered in water when finished. How do you get that off, towels? You’re going to be doing a lot of laundry.

I have my sad German intern Gunther use a sponge on my rear after a potty.

Saves time.

Ok..
A question or two.

Not being a lady myself, but don’t ladies use toilet paper to dry their lady bits?

How does spraying water on those lady bits not require a thorough drying as well?

Does it just air dry or drip dry?

These are things I must know...

I am not a bigot supporter. Bigot...Bidet...sounds too close for me.

But I am not going to slam your choice of buying a Bidet because that would make me a Bigot.

I’m a forty something guy myself. I have a wife, daughter, and son, so I guess we will find out next week how all that works out. Lol
I’m sure they will have plenty to say about “operation wet wipe”.
I know men and women who have them and they like it.

If we told you, we wouldn't be ladies, would we?

I know people from other countries think Americans are heathens for using toilet paper and not a bidet. And I agree, it's probably not the perfect system. But, I've just never understood how bidets can work so much better. You know....ever just sprayed your car with a hose when it needs a wash then run your hand over it? Yeah, still a dirty film there. Just spraying water on it doesn't wash off that film or the bugs. Feces is greasy....you can't just rinse it off with water.

Yeah, can someone female who's used a bidet clear this up? I'm a woman, but have never come across a bidet in my life, let alone used one. How..I mean, exactly what...Do we just get up and go, or is there some sort of drying step in there somewhere?

I used to work for an Indian couple, the wife was born & raised in the US, but the husband was from India. She adored TP, he preferred his...soap and rag. They were yelling at each other one day (over who's wiping method was better) and I made the mistake of asking what the tiff was about. Boy, did I get more than I bargained for with the answer.

This is not as complex as people seem to think. Some bidet have dryers, even heated ones at that. Otherwise you still use TP to pat dry. Generally much less TP overall even if you dont have a dryer built in to the seat.

Yeah if you're lucky enough to have a Japanese toilet that has all the bells and whistles, you might need a couple of squares to pat dry. Would extend the life of your stock of TP considerably.

Well, who wouldn't want to "rejuvenate with an unrivaled feeling of shower fresh clean?" I mean c'mon, I'd never leave the bathroom if I had a $4500 "Spalet" lmao.

I love Japanese bathrooms. They're incredibly easy to clean.

I'm currently having a house built, and my builder said "Oh yeah, toilet budget is around $300 each right?", nope. Master bathroom gets one of these $5k toilets and the others get the $800 attachment seats. I'm willing to compromise in a lot of areas, but the bathroom and kitchen are not ones that I ever will.

Same and I'm curious about this too. Does the water spray from the back to the front? That doesn't sound very hygienic and would be the last thing I would want and I don't see how it would save that much TP anyway? I wee a lot more than I do the other and unless I'm out in the woods or something and have no choice, am not a fan of the drip dry. (TMI)

Do you have to plug in these add-on units or do you just shoot cold water at your bum?

IIRC several years ago some Hollywood type, Winona Ryder maybe, said she used just one sheet of toilet paper. Was suppose to help the environment. I thought, does she poke a hole in the middle with her index finger, wipe and then fold each corner over her finger, twist and toss it?
