A bidet is a small fixture that resembles a low sink that is used for personal hygiene and is typically installed next to a toilet. Unlike a regular toilet, which uses water to flush away waste, a bidet uses a stream of water to wash your private area.

Bidets come in many types and styles, from the standalone bidet (or freestanding bidet) which can be installed next to the toilet or shower, other bidets might include a bidet attachment which is a device that connects to your existing toilet.

How To Use a Bidet

Using a bidet is easy! A bidet consists of a bowl, a water supply, and a drainage system. To use a bidet, you straddle the bidet (or bidet seat) facing the fixture's controls and activate the flow of bidet water from the faucet. You then adjust the water pressure and direct the stream of water to wash yourself.

Some of the best bidets have temperature controls so you can comfortably adjust the water to your liking. Once you are done using the bidet, rinse the toilet bowl and spray nozzle out by running the jets at a low setting. This help keeps it clean and fresh for the next usage. If the bidet has a self cleaning feature it will sanitize the nozzles and retract when not in use.

How Does a Bidet/Bidets work?

Most modern bidets are controlled by a knob or lever (or bidet attachment) to control water pressure and water temperature, but some models have electronic controls. When you are done, the user either pushes a button or turns a knob to stop the flow of water and allow it to drain.

Special Features

Some models offer dual nozzles, a warm air dryer, and a heated seat. The self-cleaning nozzles are engineered separately so the spray is uniquely suited for a feminine wash, with front or rear cleaning. The back nozzle has one water jet to create a powerful spray. The front nozzle has several different water holes to create a full coverage but gentle spray. Note: some standalone bidets do not come with an air dryer.

Some bidets have self-cleaning functions (such as the self-cleaning nozzles) that use high-pressure water jet to remove the dirty water and keep the toilet bowls or bidet sanitary after each use. When cleansing is finished, be sure to dry the area with tissue paper or a towel.

Less Odor!

Some models have a deodorizing unit. A small fan pulls bathroom air through a carbon filter that breaks up odorous molecules keeping your restroom smelling clean. Instead of masking bad odors like air fresheners, the deodorizer breaks down offending molecules.

Specifically for Women...(women's bidet)

The most important feature a bidet can have for a woman is a feminine wash mode. Most bidets with this feature will have two separate nozzles. The nozzle dedicated to front washing will extend further and have a different angle to ensure it can reach. Less often a bidet will have only one spray wand, but it will have a good range of positions with multiple nozzles dedicated to the female anatomy.

Types of Bidets

Standalone Bidets (or Built-in Bidets)

A standalone bidet is a great option for those who want the convenience of a bidet without having to install a new toilet. These units are easy to install and can be placed next to your existing toilet for quick and easy access.

Bidets provide a thorough cleansing experience, and many even offer features like warm water and air dryers for added comfort. A standalone bidet cannot flush away solids like a traditional toilet. Note: these traditional bidets are also called freestanding bidets.

Bidet Attachment

You can enjoy all the benefits of a bidet without having to buy a standalone bidet or a luxury bidet! There are now a variety of bidet attachments on the market that can be easily installed on most standard toilets.

These attachments typically consist of a small water reservoir and a nozzle that delivers a stream of water to cleanse the area after using the bidet. For best results with a bidet attachment, make sure you remember to shut off the T-valve after every use, with no exceptions. Forgetting to turn it off could result in a leak...

Handheld bidet

A handheld bidet also called a bidet shower or bidet sprayer is a nozzle that stays attached to the toilet. Most handheld bidets have adjustable settings so you can control the pressure and direction of the water stream. These are usually the most affordable option for a sprayer attachment.

Portable Bidets

A portable bidet (or travel bidet) is a small device that can be used when away from home. Unlike a built-in bidet, which are permanently installed, travel bidets can be easily packed in a suitcase or carry-on bag. They are ideal for use when traveling, camping, or anytime you are away from home and unable to use a traditional bidet.

A portable bidet typically features a small water reservoir and a hand-held sprayer. To use, simply fill the reservoir with water, then hold the sprayer over the toilet bowl and press the button to release a stream of clean water for a feminine wash.

Bidet Toilet Seat (bidet seats)

A bidet seat is a type of toilet seat that includes a built-in cleansing system. Most models feature a wand that can spray water and be used for posterior cleansing, while some also include a separate nozzle for feminine cleansing.

The bidet toilet seat is the most popular type of bidet in the market, as it replaces an existing toilet seat. Using a bidet seat can differ because there are different types of bidet seats with different functionalities.

It can be fully automated with high-tech structures, or it can come with basic functions. Many bidet seats also have features like a warm air dryer, deodorizers, and massage functions.

Some bidet seats provide a continuous warm water supply so you don't have to worry about running out mid-wash. It comes in especially handy for women because the front wash and rear wash can be performed with warm water in one session without the water running cold.

Bidets and women's health

Women's health is a topic of increasing importance, and there is a growing body of evidence that supports using a bidet for feminine hygiene. In addition to being more gentle and hygienic than dry toilet paper, a bidet can help to reduce the risk of urinary tract infections, and other vaginal infections. Moreover, they can also provide relief from symptoms like itching, burning, and irritation.

Some women may feel uncomfortable using a bidet for the first time, but they will quickly discover that it's easy to use a bidet! There are many functional options on the market that can provide a refreshing and cleansing experience. Let's explore in detail some of the health benefits a bidet can provide for women...

A Gentle Cleansing

Bidets are actually very gentle and can be a great addition to your home. Unlike toilet paper, which can be harsh on your skin, bidets use a stream of water to cleanse your body. This not only feels more pleasant, but it can also be more effective at cleaning away bacteria and other contaminants.

Please note that women should also watch the water pressure and angle of the water to avoid forcing water into the vagina. “A bidet is meant to clean the outside of your body, not the inside.”

In addition, bidets can help to reduce irritation and prevent infection. For people with sensitive skin or certain medical conditions, bidets can be a godsend. So don't be afraid to give them a try!

Better Than Toilet Paper!

There are many reasons to prefer bidets to toilet paper or wet wipes. For one, bidets are more hygienic. Regular toilet paper use can leave residue on the skin, which can lead to irritation and infection.

In addition, bidets provide a more thorough clean, which is especially important for people with allergies or sensitivities. Bidets are also more gentle on the skin, and so much more comfortable for people suffering from hemorrhoids or other anal problems like fissures.

Furthermore, bidets are more environmentally friendly than toilet paper. Toilet paper is made from trees, and the manufacturing process uses a great deal of water and energy. In contrast, bidets use very little water, and they don’t require any trees to be cut down.

Bidets Can Help Reduce UTIs and Other Infections

Anyone who has ever suffered from a urinary tract infection knows that they are no fun. In addition to causing a burning sensation when you urinate, UTIs can also lead to fever, chills, and nausea.

Fortunately, there is a simple way to help reduce your risk of developing a UTI: use a bidet. By gently cleansing the area around the urethra with warm water after going to the bathroom, bidets help remove bacteria and fecal matter that could otherwise cause an infection.

In addition to UTIs, bidets have also been shown to help reduce the risk of other vaginal infections, such as yeast infections and bacterial vaginosis. So if you're looking for a way to stay healthy and comfortable, adding a bidet to your bathroom routine might be the way to go.

Relief From Irritating Symptoms

Bidets can provide much-needed relief from itching, burning and irritation. When used regularly for washing, bidets help to cleanse the female anatomy, removing bacteria that can cause infection. In addition, the stream of water from a bidet can help to soothe inflamed tissue and provide relief from discomfort.

For women who are prone to yeast infections, bidets can also help to reduce the risk of recurrence by keeping the area clean and dry. As a result, bidets can be an important part of maintaining vaginal health.

Front to Back!

Are bidets safe? Yes! It's natural that you might worry about switching to washing with water every time you go to the restroom. Luckily, bidets are safe for female genitalia. The guideline for wiping — go front to back — applies here, too. Use the bidet's front wash feature (sometimes called “feminine wash”) to spray warm water or cold water from front to back.

Some bidets are fully automated and even have wireless remote controls--press the ‘front wash' button to wash your lady area and the ‘rear wash' to wash your behind. This helps prevent anything travelling from the anus to the vagina after bowel movements, which is what causes infections. Use a bidet toilet seat's drying feature, a towel, or tissue paper to make sure the area is thoroughly dry, as moisture can also cause the growth of bacteria.

Are Bidets Sanitary?

Yes and yes! In fact, they're not just safe and sanitary — they also offer a pleasant, convenient experience in a variety of instances that make your life and your bathroom a little better.
