It just makes good sense.
on December 1, 2011
Let's say you've just come in from the garden and your hands are dirty. Would it make sense for you to use only paper towels (no water) to clean-up? And, haven't we all been told that we should wash our hands after using the bathroom? Do you do that with dry paper? No, water is used in all such instances....as it should be.
The multi-billion dollar toilet paper industry has an extreme vested financial interest in seeing to it that American consumers continue and increase their use of TP products. They spend millions annually in advertising to convince buyers of the value of their products. At one time I suspect that Mr. Wipple was better known than some rock stars. All things considered, it is downright amazing that bidets have not caught on in this country. The one "place" on our bodies that deserves real cleanliness goes unattended except for dry paper....no matter how soft it is! In this regard, Europeans seems to be ahead of us....bidets are more common there or so I've been told.
I don't recall now how I discovered bidets..its been several years ago. But to date (Dec 2011)...I have purchased and installed three of these inexpensive units in my home and in a summer house out in the country. I've given one as a gift(strange, I know). I have no trouble with cool water bidets but some might prefer that both hot and cold water be combined (that can be done but with more expensive unites and more complicated installation) This unit is simple and easy to install. You don't need to be a plumber but it's a good idea to read the instructions before you begin. It does exactly what it promises, and does it well for a very reasonable price. I've never had a problem with a leak though I suggest that after installation, you observe for a few days to insure water-tightness.
I have grown so use to having a bidet that I find I miss them when traveling away from home for more than a few days. In addition to the cleanliness factor, they also help reduce the use of TP as it is only needed to pat dry. Studies have shown that using a bidet reduces many anal problems, hemorrhoids for example. To use a pun...at the bottom of all this is just a cleaner bottom!
