Why you should get a Bidet seat in your bathroom! 

Did you know that in 1975, Italy passed a law making the installation of a bidet seat mandatory? If a bidet is so important that an entire country passed a law regulating their installation and use, there must be something very special about them then, right? But what is it that makes them so special? Well, that’s what we are going to discuss today.

Not only do bidet’s promote good  hygiene, they are also environmentally (and economically) friendly in limiting the use of both toilet paper and water.  We here at House of Toilets are going to talk about 5 reasons why you should consider a bidet.  

Promotes Hygiene

Let’s say you were  walking in your back yard and accidentally stepped in something (mud, animal droppings, etc.) and had it all over your shoes. Would you rather grab some tissue paper to wipe it off or get out the hose and spray with water? Water is the obvious choice here! 

Cleaning your bottom should not be any different, and in combining water with the right pressure, bidets are sure to leave you cleaner than using just toilet paper.

Rather than smearing waste with toilet paper, bidet seats offer a much more hygienic option in using water to clean your skin. Some bidet seats even come with built-in air dryer and temperature control for your comfort.

More Environmentally friendly

Even a low flow toilet uses over a gallon and a half of water. In comparison, a bidets only uses one-eighth of a gallon. The environmental impact doesn’t end there either. Toilet paper production has a massive impact on the environment as well. It takes approximately 37 gallons of water to make a single roll and most toilet papers also requires the use of bleach, an dangerous chemical that can harm the environment. Plus, as much as 17.3 terawatts of electricity annually is sued in the overall production of toilet paper. When you invest in a bidet seat you are also saving some of the 384 trees that are cut down to make a single person's lifetime toilet-paper supply.  

Think of the impact of water use and paper production described here. It means that if only 50% of Americans switched to bidet seats, we could significantly reduce our carbon footprint. This one small change could conserve water, preserve trees, save electricity, and save you money..

Helps with constipation, hemorrhoids, and postpartum care

Bidet seats can help people who suffer from constipation and hemorrhoids. Some premium bidet seats have a customized nozzle tip with enema function to ease the discomfort caused by constipation. Built-in air dryers and steam functions eliminate the need to wipe inflamed hemorrhoids, helping  lead to faster recovery.

For all postpartum moms, instead of dreading your trips to the bathroom on those days you are feeling delicate and sore, get yourself a bidet to make your life easier. This investment will be used well beyond your postpartum days and it is worth it. Pamper yourself with a bidet, you deserve the best.

Budget friendly

One of the major news stories in the first half of 2020 was the shortages of toilet paper at stores around the country. Not only was the product hard to find, but prices went up as a result. Even with supply returning to normal, the average cost of a roll of toilet paper ranges from 25 cents to a dollar, while Americans use about 36.5 billion rolls of toilet paper every year! An average person will use an average of 140 rolls annually. Over the course of a year, that means that a person is spending well over $100 on rolls of toilet paper and a family’s outlay is much larger. The savings from a bidet are real, especially for bigger families. Investing in a bidet is good for your wallet

Prevent toilet clogging 

If you have ever had to call a plumber to have your pipes cleared or a drain unclogged, you know just how expensive that can be. Toilet paper clogs are a common problem and as we know, bidets reduce the use of toilet paper. The more you flush down the toilet the higher the potential for a clog. A bidet is the perfect solution to limiting the amount of material flushed down a toilet. Toilet paper clogs can be costly.

Install a bidet in your bathroom and never have to keep your local plumber on speed dial.  

We hope that bidets will come to mind next time you think of your bathroom routine. Enjoy a healthier lifestyle while saving money and the environment. Both Mother Nature and your wallet will thank you!
