What Is A Bidet

What is a bidet?

Bidets use water to wash you after you use the washroom. You may have seen bidets in your travels, particularly in Europe, as they are very common in most parts of the world outside North America. You've also probably seen bidets if you've traveled to Asia as well - as they're sometimes referred to as the Japanese toilet or washlet.  
Using a stream of water to wash is simply cleaner, more comfortable, and more hygienic. There are several advantages of using a bidet over toilet paper.  
Certainly, the environmental impact is big since bidets can reduce toilet paper consumption by 75% or more. But the most compelling reason to use bidets - is that they are cleaner, more comfortable, and more hygienic. Let's say you want to wash your face... would you just start rubbing your face with dry paper? Of course not, that would be totally dumb. You know that you should use water to clean yourself. So why do you use dry, abrasive paper to clean the most sensitive parts of your body?
For now, more and more people are aware of the benefits of washing with water, and bidet is more and more popular to be used in the world.
