3 Reasons to Start Using a Bidet
June 8, 2016
By the time a customer calls us, they’ve pretty much already made up their mind on getting a bidet seat and the conversation is typically more a discussion on which seat to get. If this sounds like you, go ahead and give us a call at 888-388-5658 and we’d be happy to share our bidet knowledge with you! But if you’re not quite there yet, you’re probably still deciding if a bidet seat is right for you and your family.
To that end – we wanted to share an informative article we found on bidet seats. The article was published recently at www.attn.com and talks about a few different reasons why using a bidet makes so much sense. Here are 3 reasons why you should start using a bidet:
#1. Hygiene and Health – We all know that using water is the best way to wash our bodies. It’s why we take a shower everyday, instead of wiping our bodies with dry paper. So why do we use dry, abrasive paper to clean the most sensitive part of our body? There are likely many reasons, but we think one of the big ones is that Americans are taught since childhood to use dry paper – it’s all we know! It really is psychological conditioning as a result of our culture. But if you take a step back and think about it, using dry paper to clean yourself doesn’t make any sense at all.
#2. The Environment – Americans use a LOT of toilet paper, and all this toilet paper use has a compounding effect on our environment. First, MILLIONS of trees are cut down every year for the sole purpose of manufacturing toilet paper. Second, all that toilet paper directly translates to more paper waste. Because a bidet seat uses water to wash you, toilet paper usage can be reduced by 75% or more.
#3. Cost Savings – And all this reduction in toilet paper use translates to a direct savings to your wallet! According to the article, a typical family of four spends approximately $120 annually on toilet paper. Given the life of a bidet seat is seven to ten years, you can see how a bidet can pay for itself over time.
We hope you learned a little more about the modern bidet seat today. We have a wide selection of bidet models available so feel free to peruse our site and see which model is best for you. And if you have any questions, please feel free to give us a call. We’d love to hear from you!
