Whether you’re running low on toilet paper or you’re simply running out, toilets are tough to come by right now. But, some folks are avoiding the embarrassment of the wet toilet paper and have instead found a more practical solution, a modern-day alternative to bidets: toilet bidets. For those of you not familiar with them, bidets are attachable rods that, when pushed up against the toilet’s sphincter, emit water. It’s kind of like a self-cleaning washing machine, only a lot more advanced. They’re gaining in popularity at a steady pace, so if yours doesn’t have one, it may be time to consider changing to a newer one.
Some bidets can be adjusted to spray different types of liquid. They can be adjusted to vary the pressure or to spray in a specific direction. Some have additional features, such as temperature control or auto shut-off, but the best remote and bidets come with all these options built in. For example, the best remote for a “standard” bidet usually offers temperature controls, but can also adjust spraying direction. This eliminates the need to buy additional accessories.
Bidets that can also be adjusted to flush water and chemicals separately are called “split” bidets. They can also include a seat temperature controller, which is a real convenience because your hands don’t have to remain inside the toilet while you’re doing the deed. (Be sure not to leave the seat temperature controller on when using a bidet if you’re pregnant or menstruating, as the water can be too hot.) Some models are designed with a seat heater in case you want to wash your legs, as well as a handy “spitter” that sprays water to keep your hands and toilet seat clean.
It’s important to test out an electric bidet seat before purchasing it. The best testers are those that are able to provide both a full overview of how the bidet is performing and a detailed description of the functions of each of the controls. Look for reviews online or from other users of bidet seats.
Many new toilet seats use remote controls. However, if you already have an old toilet, you might be better off replacing the toilet bowl, rather than the bidet. Older toilet bowl tend to wear out more quickly, making them less reliable than bidet seats with remote controls. If you already own an old toilet, instead of buying a new one, you might consider installing a bidet seat or two, as this will save you from having to purchase a new toilet after only a few years.
Most household bathrooms have warm-water and electric bidets. If you don’t already have either of these, warm-water bidets are easier to install and use than electric bidets. However, both bidets are excellent for using with warm water, as they usually have elongated grips that make them easy to use. If you’re looking for something more inexpensive, electric bidets may be worth a look. Some experts also recommend warm-water bidets because they can get the same effect as using a warm-water shower as a toilet seat.
One area that you can use quite a bit is around the bathroom vanity area. Most people do not want their bidet to get in the way of cleaning up the vanity, but the bidet can be useful for clearing your teeth or getting shampoo off of your hair. This means that a bidet seat can be useful for grooming your entire body, as well as the area around the vanity. Bilet seats that are made from chrome finish off the vanity area, while plastic ones can add some flair to the decor. You can buy bidet seats in several different colors and materials, including natural materials such as bamboo and leather.
When you start shopping for bidet seats, the first thing that you need to think about is whether or not the seat will be the most functional part of your bathroom. Although this may be subjective, the best bet is to go with the bidet seats that allow you to get the most out of your time. For example, if you wash your hands frequently and need to dry your face in between doing those things, you’ll probably want to go with an intuitive remote control. The more functions that you have, the better it is for you.
