* Bidets are better than toilet paper for your bottom and the environment
* These handheld bidets are easy to take with you for use on the road
* Includes both hand pump and electric versions
America is a weird place for more ways than one. We won’t get into everything, but one of the strangest thing for foreigners visiting the USA is the lack of bidets. From Europe to Asia, these water sprayers are a common fixture in private and public bathrooms alike. Yet most Americans have never used one. We’re here to tell you why that should change.
Using a bidet is better for personal hygiene. Toilet paper leaves bits behind, but warm water does the trick of removing all the nasty stuff on your bottom after you use the bathroom. It’s also easier on your skin than wiping pieces of a tree across your butt.
Furthermore, bidets are better for the environment, cost less to use than toilet paper and prevent plumbing clogs. All in all, we’d say Americans are missing out by not using these toilet accessories.
Perhaps you are ready to try a bidet but don’t want to commit to the full monty. These portable, handheld options are an affordable way to give washing with water a go. Alternatively, if you already love using a bidet and want to be able to take one with you anywhere you go, these options are fully travel friendly. Slip one in your bag, and you’ll have bidet power everywhere.
