The Ultimate Guide to Portable Bidets

22 Jan, 2020

Americans have FINALLY uncovered special intelligence that the rest of the world has already known: Bidets are the best way to clean your butt after you poop! Now, with more sleek and affordable portable bidet attachments, like TUSHY, on the market, it’s becoming more common and a lot easier to clean your butt the right way by having a bidet in your home. 

But unless you have bowels of steel, your home isn’t the only place you’re pooping. Admit it. Your babysitter doesn’t call every day at 2:30 pm and talk to you for upwards of 20 minutes. We all know you’re pooping at work. And the truth of the matter is, nature comes knocking at your backdoor no matter where you are but unfortunately, not everywhere has a bidet! Luckily there are portable bidets, also known as travel bidets on the market that make pooping on the go, feel like pooping at home. 

What is a Travel Bidet?

A portable or travel bidet is a conveniently sized bottle that you manually squeeze to produce a stream of cleansing water. They come in standard and collapsible models, and they feature spouts designed for easy, precise and thorough, on-the-go cleaning. Travel bidets are designed for simple and discreet portability so when you take it to the bathroom, no one HAS to know what’s going on… but if you’re anything like us, you’ll be bragging about the poop you're about to drop. 

Why a Bidet?

Why use a bidet? Well, simply put, water cleans better than dry paper. Wiping with dry toilet paper leaves behind excess fecal matter that could lead to an array of unpleasant and sometimes even dangerous after-effects. Smell, discomfort, and skidmarks aside, wiping with toilet paper can lead to UTIs, yeast infections, and anal fissures. 

Using a bidet changes all that. A cleansing, soothing water wash leaves you clean and shower-fresh all day long… or until your next dump. 

Besides offering great health and hygiene benefits to users, bidets also help protect the environment. Americans use over 34 million rolls of toilet paper every day which wastes precious resources and damages the environment and ecosystems that rely on trees. The bidets can reduce toilet paper consumption by 75 to 100%.


Benefits of a Bidet

 

Health and Hygiene

Bidets wash away more fecal matter than toilet paper with a gentle, non-invasive, cleansing stream. 

Cost

Bidets are a cost-effective alternative to toilet paper, seeing as the average American family spends $500 on flushable paper per year. When you switch to a bidet to handle the heavy doody stuff, you end up using 80% less toilet paper than normal. 

Environmental

In the U.S., 27,000 trees are chopped down every single day for the sole purpose of toilet paper. Per DAY! 15 Billion trees are chopped down worldwide annually just to be flushed down the toilet. 

How Do I Use a Handheld Bidet?

Let me guess. You’re a little intimidated at the prospect of a bidet that you hold in your hand. Don’t worry. We will walk you through the simple steps of using a portable bidet sprayer. 

Fill ‘er Up

Before taking your bidet into the stall, simply fill it up with water. The great thing about this is that you can choose the temperature you’d like. You can use cold water for those poops that you know are going to be spicy. You can go the warm water route for those cold winter months. Or you can pick something right in between.

Spray Away

Start squeezing the bottle to release the direct stream. Spraying with water will alleviate the irritation caused by too much wiping… especially after those hefty deuces. Once you’ve sprayed your booty clean, you can either air dry or you can use a reusable bum towel to pat dry. Both methods are great for sustainable pooper on the go.
