School. Work. Gym. Music festivals. Your significant other’s place. No, we’re not listing the places you love to visit; we’re listing the places where you might have to poop. Though we usually do everything in our power to avoid it whenever possible, pooping in public is a common occurrence. So why not suck it up and make the best of it? If you’re worried about doing your business in any room that’s not your own, the TUSHY Travel, a discreet and portable bidet, might be your new favorite travel accessory. A portable bidet might sound like a joke, but it’s definitely not. In fact, the TUSHY Travel is actually a pretty ingenious invention.

Innovative and cutting-edge don’t really describe this design, which is actually quite simple (it’s like an upside-down water bottle). But that doesn’t mean it won’t change your life. Easy to carry, this portable bidet is sure to leave your behind feeling fresh and clean, even if you’re doing the dirty in less-than-ideal public bathrooms (hello, dirty ol’ gas station toilet).

In recent years, a handful of startups have captured the public’s attention with products designed to help you go to the bathroom more efficiently. Products like Poo-Pourri, TUSHY and the Squatty Potty have all had their viral moments, thanks in large part to clever, tongue-in-cheek marketing. However, while the marketing is often silly, these products have loyal customers that swear by them, and TUSHY’s bidet ads are all over Instagram. Recently the company introduced the world to the TUSHY Travel, which they say is designed to help you “go” wherever you go.

The portable bidet has uses beyond gross public bathrooms. For anyone who spends a lot of time hiking or camping, the TUSHY Travel can actually come in handy out in the great outdoors.

How Does the TUSHY Travel Bidet Work?

The TUSHY Travel has a straightforward design, which we’ll break down in gif form.

Step 1. Open the TUSHY Travel and expand the collapsible body. Fill it with water.

Step 3. Empty out the remaining water, rinse off the bidet and collapse it back down.

In addition to helping your behind feel fine, it comes with a cushy ergonomic grip (which is a must when you’re spraying it from that awkward angle — you know the one we’re talking about — and it uses a handy hinged nozzle with a 3-point spout that helps cover more surface area. That means you can rest a little easier without having to worry about missing a spot or accidentally spraying your clothing.

Available in four vibrant colors, it’s actually quite stylish, though you probably wouldn’t want to flaunt it when you’re out and about. That said, it does feature its own carabiner that lets you easily attach it to your bags. Fortunately, it also comes with its own discreet carrying case, making it possible to forgo all the fuss and keep it out of sight — but not out of mind.

Best of all, there’s nothing to plug in or charge — simply fill ‘er up and you’re good to go. With the option to choose a straight streaming pattern or a wider spray, you’ll never have to worry about pooping in public again. OK, that last statement may be a bit of a stretch, but at least now you won’t have to worry about wiping. From the great outdoors to gross public bathrooms, the TUSHY Travel is “a bum washer for people who poop… on the go.”
