Do you really feel clean after using toilet paper?
Millions of households use toilet paper for their most basic personal hygiene provision. But how effective is the use of rolls and rolls of toilet paper? Does it actually clean up thoroughly enough to prevent health problems?
What does the average individual do when they dirty their hands or face? They wash. A little mud on a child’s knees after it has fallen will immediately be removed by mum through washing. What do we do with human waste, potentially carrying a risk of spreading bacteria and viruses? We dab, or better rub, it off with a little bit of dry paper.
To be perfectly honest, what would an individual do if they happened to fall into a septic tank? Would they scream for packets of toilet paper to rub themselves off with? Highly unlikely. It is far more likely for them to get hold of the nearest garden hose to thoroughly wash themselves down.
This is likely to be followed by their clothes either being boil washed or disposed of, while they spend some considerable time under a hot shower, armed with as many soaps and shower gels as they can possibly get hold of.
So why does everyone treat the cleaning of their posterior region with such an almost careless attitude? The waste to be removed is potentially just as dangerous and health threatening as a septic tank, yet we fail to treat it with the same respect.
Maybe the reason for this is that many households do not have a bidet readily installed. It doesn’t help that most people are under the impression that investing in a new bidet will involve a lot of extra plumbing, huge expense and another fixture to be placed in sometimes comparatively small areas.
The good news is that none of this is necessary. Modern electronic bidets simply replace the old toilet seat and are therefore not only much easier, but also cheaper to install.
The initial cost of such a bidet and the running costs incurred through use of electricity and water are minimal when compared to the cost of life-time supplies of toilet paper, potions to combat rashes, allergies, piles and many other side-effects of using even the best toilet paper and potential medical costs resulting from infections being spread.
The health benefits are even more important than the financial aspect of installing a bidet. For starters, waste is being removed from one’s body with warm water applied by gentle jets, ensuring total, hand-free personal hygiene.
Dampness and resulting soreness or possible infections are being avoided through warm air drying of the area. Using a bidet therefore ensures total protection against disease for the whole family, providing total peace of mind.
Not only that, bidets are also much more environmentally friendly by stopping chemicals from flushed away toilet paper entering water systems or even groundwater if a septic tank is in use. What’s more, unpleasant blockages of pipes, toilets and tanks through toilet paper equally become ancient history.
