Customer Reviews

This is a well made and easy to use product.
Karen G.
It works better with moist wipes than toilet paper, and the release button works good if you don't jam the wipe in the holder too far.
Patty Horner
They come with a convenient, discreet zippered pouch for traveling or carrying in your purse and are so easy to use.

I injured my left rotator cuff and broke my arm in June. Since I am left handed I suddenly found out that my right hand was 3 inches too short to accomplish bathroom duties.. I knew I could just not go to the bathroom until it healed so I tried a shoe horn. swiffer handle and curved stick to no avail. After a few weeks, frustration and humiliation led me to start searching for another answer. That's when I found my Bottom "Butt" Buddy.(my personal name) This product has been my life saver.
On a recent trip to Alaska I could tell that the people operating the airport x-ray machines wanted to ask me what it was but never did. They would study it in my carry on bag. It never was far from me the whole trip since one nevers knows these things. I have shared the info with my
Orthopedist, physical therapy staff and many patients. They have given me permission to put a note about it in their offices. I guess you could say I am impressed. I know I will consider myself healed when I can wipe my "butt" and hook my bra with my left hand again. Until then I will carry my constant companion with me. Thanks

I injured my shoulder and had to have surgery, the other shoulder was recovering from a surgery the previous year. I was worried about taking care of my hygiene while incapacitated, I saw this device and ordered it. It works great! I found that toilet paper isn't the greatest medium for these but the flushable damp wipes sold in the TP isle is just the thing.

I used it for months and never had a problem with it. If you need that extra reach, try this product!

When I read the feedback for the Bottom Buddy, it sounded like a mixed reaction. However, I am having hand surgery on one hand- 6wks recovery and then the other hand & another 6wks before I wipe my own bum. I am a 3X size girl so I am not relishing asking anyone for help. There isn't alot of room to approach the rear even with a cut-out on my toilet riser. I also have a disability for my arthritic hands and spine. The old gray mare syndrome. I have had NO trouble with the issues that others had with using toilet paper as opposed to wet wipes. I always use wetwipes on each trip instead of paper that can leave unpleasant pieces in the public hair ;o) I have a suggestion of something that works for me. After I shower and dry off, I use a silicon based sex lubricant in my belly skin fold and both the labia and the rectal area. This works like teflon non-stick and clean up is a breeze for the rest of the day... for urine you only need to dab, not wipe and there is no odor and BMs slide right off. Just saying.

I have two at home. The handle is hard plastic with a sliding switch that opens the blue rubber toilet grabber attached to the end of the stick. I use five toilet paper sheets folded at the crease for each wipe and have to stuff the paper into all three slots without ripping it. Sometimes the paper tears, and I have to start again with fresh paper. Using less paper than five usually results in the tolet paper breaking which exposes the blue rubber to the skin - I think it cleans better than the 'ol left hand and toilet sheet combo and uses less paper doing it. The design is for persons with trouble turning or bending. I suppose it could also be good for a Home Health Aid to use when wiping her client after they had a bowel movement. However, some I am sure would not want this device used because they prefer the personal touch with baby wipes. I suggest you buy one for an obese family member or aged parent. It makes a thoughtful and useful gift.

This is a decent item for cleaning up front, not so great for getting behind. I found that as a woman you run into the need to go from back to front with it after a mastectomy since you can't move your arms well. And since you have to do that it runs the risk of cross contamination. It would work better if it were about 3 inches longer. As others have said this works best with the moist wipes (flushable) since they are thicker.

I would definitely recommend this product in conjunction with the Lav-Aid sprayer. Mainly just as a dryer. The sprayer works great to get you clean but it's hard to dry your bum off afterward. But with a wash cloth on the end of the Bottom Buddy you can dry off very well.

This product is a life-saver for those with reaching or stretching problems. I have tried several "versions" of the toileting tools available, and the design for this one is superior. The soft-rubber bulb design is more comfortable to use than the other knife-like devices. The manufacturer recommends that you use wet-wipes, not dry toilet paper. I must agree. I think that those reviews where folks are complaining that the wand broke may be using the dry paper and working the wand too hard.

It seems to work best if you take a full square wet-wipe, push the wipe into the center of the petals, and let the four points fall around the head of the bulb. after completing your business, flip it over so that all four points dangle down, and then release the button over the trashcan. (IF you have flushable wipes, then you can release directly into the toilet bowl.) Remember not to push the wipe too far down into the petals, or the paper may not release without a little tug.

I highly recommend this device. The bottom buddy does ship with a pouch-- but does not allow room for sanitary supplies. I have created a perfect travel kit for my little tool. I use the Eagle Creek Pack It Tube Cube and a Ziploc 1 Pint Freezer Bags - 1 box (20 Count) to carry a supply of wet-wipes. Everything fits just right in the tube pouch. I have found this makes a discreet *waterproof* sanitary pouch and it doesn't raise eyebrows in airport security. Give it a try, you'll like it!
