A bidet is a specialized toilet receptacle meant to be sitting on top of the toilet for the explicit purpose of cleaning the private genitalia, perineal area, inner thighs, and buttocks. The earliest model was a tube-like affair with a long hose connected to the plumbed in the water supply. Nowadays the bidet has evolved into a much more convenient piece of home hygiene technology. The most recent type has a wide plumbed in water supply and has a special drainage opening and therefore is not a traditional type of plumbing fixture under local health regulations.
Most bidets are very stylish and come in a wide variety of colors. They are also available in the form of prefabricated fixtures or self-contained models that install easily and don’t require any plumbing work. Most bidet fixtures come with a hose and toilet paper holder. These holders are very handy and allow you to easily remove the handheld bidet and insert the folded up toilet paper into it for cleaning. Some models have a magazine holder attached to the toilet paper holder which allows you to keep handy a magazine that contains the latest tips on male genital hygiene and its care.
In case you wish to use a bidet while you’re traveling then you need a travel bidet. They come in the form of a lightweight travel toilet that sits on your tray at the base of the toilet. The travel bidet is very easy to use and it’s even easier if you fold it up and keep it in your luggage. Once you arrive at your destination it simply unfolds out of the bag and you can begin using it right away. Such bidets are usually easy to use and clean because they use water as well as a gentle jet of water directed at the anus to cleanse the genital area.
Self-contained bidets are very popular among travelers. They consist of a chamber pot that sits on a stand. You can either wash yourself or the bidet, it’s up to you. A lot of people find the self-contained bidet to be convenient because they can do both at the same time and they don’t need to go out to get it done. Such bidets are very easy to clean and sanitize because there is nothing to separate the genital area from the rest of the body to clean.
There are two types of bidets in the United States: toilet fixtures and self-contained bidets. Toilet fixtures include bidet seats, toilet paper holders, bidet trays, and more. Self-contained bidets are pretty much the same thing as a toilet fixture with one exception: the bidet nozzle is incorporated into the sink itself so that all that’s needed is a plunger to open the drain. A very simple design, but it makes such bidets very user-friendly.
Self-contained bidets have many advantages. For one, they are easier to clean and sanitize than bidet seats because everything is integrated into the sink. They are also more sanitary than bidet seats because the water used is not trickling over the pelvic area, which can cause irritation or infections. Self-contained bidets usually have a wider cleaning and washing scoop than toilet seats. Self-contained bidets are made for everyday use and even weekend use as well, they just might not have the same features as toilet seats.
If you are looking for a bidet, you can usually find one anywhere in your home. Just do a search for “bidet”, “washtub”, “bathroom bidet”, etc and you’ll get several hits. Some stores offer to let you test out their bidet, although you will usually have to pay a nominal fee. Once you get the bidet and decide to buy it, you will probably have to install it yourself unless the store gives you an easy step by step guide on how to install it. Some of the self-contained fixtures are fairly easy to install, however, you will probably still need to have someone help you with that if you’re not familiar with it.
Bidets are very important to a lot of people especially in the west where hygiene is not really a top priority. We just want to be able to take care of our body parts. However, using a bidet can be a little embarrassing to those who don’t have a lot of information on bidets and the hygiene aspect of them. Most people have no problem with using toilet seats when they have to go out for the day, but using bidets to cleanse the genitalia can be a bit of a turn off for some people. That’s why most places sell bidets as separate fixtures so you can buy them separately from the rest of the toilet furniture like the seat and the basin.
