A bidet spray can be a great addition to your bathroom remodel, and we’re here to tell you why. Before we get into the benefits of bidets, let’s talk about what they are for those who don’t know much about them.
A bidet is simply a small nozzle that sprays water up from underneath to cleanse your bottom after using the toilet. This can help with many issues such as hemorrhoids, diarrhea, constipation, and even UTIs.
Bidets have been around for quite some time now, but it seems like they never made their way over to America until recently. Today bidets are becoming more popular in residential homes because there are so many benefits associated with them (more on that below).
If you plan on remodeling your bathroom in the near future, a bidet should be one of your top priorities! A bidet spray is an excellent addition to any home, no matter where you live. No bidet spray is inherently better than the other, and most bidets use a simple knob to adjust water pressure, temperature, and oscillation.
Improved Health with Hemorrhoids and UTIs
A bidet spray can help treat and relieve hemorrhoids and UTIs, while also preventing them from occurring in the first place. A bidet spray will wash away the bacteria that causes UTIs after urinating and prevent them from occurring in the first place.
Cleaner Feeling without Toilet Paper
A bidet spray works by spraying water to clean the private parts instead of toilet paper. A bidet has different settings for washing, rinsing, or drying your bottom with warm air. Using a bidet spray can eliminate up to 99% of fecal bacteria compared to only 50% when using toilet paper alone.
People who have bidets in their bathrooms report fewer instances of post toileting cleanup than those who do not. Bidet sprays are installed in bathrooms for health reasons, but they can also be great at helping to reduce the spread of germs and bacteria during cold and flu season.
Bidets are also more environmentally friendly since they reduce the need for toilet paper. Thus, less trees need to be cut down for manufacturing or transporting toilet paper which takes up a lot of landfill space and water resources when recycled (or even worse – flushed down the toilet and ending up in a water treatment plant).
Great For Older Adults
The bidet spray is also an excellent hygiene tool for older adults, people with disabilities, or those with injuries who may have trouble using traditional cleaning methods.
