    Well i saw toilet paper and it got my attention. So this is the new type of toilets they are manufacturing? 

    And props for having the courage to do this type of article. I know not everyone would have done it. I am yet to have the experience with one of this type of toilet.

    Hello Jason,

    The bidet is one savior of the planet, it reduces the use of toilet paper, helps with financial budget and hygienically inclined.
    Using the toilet together with the bidet seems an extravagant thing to do.

    Of course, do hand washing after any task is the number one key to eliminates germs.

    I like to own one after reading your excellent article.
    Good one,

    Thanks for the article on Bidet’s and toilet paper. I guess I am just one of those people who cant imagine getting a proper clean without the toilet paper. I did not know that people used their hands and I have to admit, I find that very shocking. Thank you again.

      Hey, Jill,

      As bidets become more and more popular in the western world, you will get more used to the idea of getting one for your home. Then at that time, you will not want to go back to what you are currently using.

      And yes, people do use their hands to clean in certain parts of the world. There is a whole lot more to learn…

      Keep up to date with the site to learn more.

      Thank you for your comment.

    I have never used a bidet. This is great information for using one though. I have seen toilets here in the USA that have them built in and they always seemed a little like a fancy gadget that was too rich for my use.
    After reading your article, I think the next time I have to change a toilet in our house, I may very well spend the extra and get one with a built in bidet.
    Thanks for the info,

      Oh yeah, it’s about time you make the upgrade to a bidet toilet, David 🙂 This is something that you and your family will not regret.

    Good Day,

    Thanks for your insightful article.

    Until now I was also one of those people that thought a bidet was only a luxurious item. Never thought that it is a useful tool for people with disabilities too. Thinking of it now, it actually makes sense.

    As for the “Do you use toilet paper with the bidet?” question… I think I fall into the category of yes, I think I will.

    As a sanitary device, as you said, water is the best soluble, hence my search for a bidet.

    Wow, a bidet as they call it is a complicated thing, I thank you for giving us Americans some insight into this topic. The main question has been; To bidet or not to bidet? But I think it is a much more economic way of cleaning than just paper. I also think that using toilet paper after would be best, and the combination would equal less use of toilet paper cleaner situations.

      “To bidet” is the way to go for sure, Danny.

      It’s simply much more hygienic, economic, and provides a whole lot of benefit for many people.

    Living in the United States, I haven’t come across a lot of bidets. I know what one is and I may have seen a couple in travels, but I never really had a great concept of it until now. If the water power were strong enough, I can see not using toilet paper. But how do you dry yourself after so your pants don’t get all wet?

      Hi, Jaime,

      You can either use toilet paper/towel  as pointed out in the article or a warm air dryer usually included with the high end bidets such as the TOTO midrange series.

      This ensures that you are thoroughly dry.

    OK after I learn to be “cool” with using my hand to clean and then blow drying my kiester, how do you clean the bidet (nozzles or whatever) and with what? And how often should it be cleaned?
