Truth or Derriere: Bidet Myths Debunked

To American culture, the bidet is an enigma: a mysterious butt cleaning entity that has dominated restrooms in Europe and Asia for years. It’s easy to develop assumptions and misinformation when it comes to spraying your butt after you poop. Bidets are not something we’re used to, so it’s understandable. That’s why TUSHY bidet wants to debunk any myths you may have heard floating around the toilet forums. And if you’re on the fence, hopefully, we at TUSHY can give you the facts on the craps will help you in your decision to convert to the Clean Butt Club with the TUSHY bidet.

Myth 1: “ Isn’t it dirty toilet water you’re spraying your butt with?”

Truth: The TUSHY bidet uses the same water you use to brush your teeth! Because there is no electricity involved, TUSHY bidet is powered by the water pressure from the valve behind your toilet. That water is clean and refreshing and awesome for cleaning those cheeks.

Myth 2: “Ummm… using a bidet seems like a waste of water to me. ::leaves.shower.running::”

Truth: Did you know it takes 37 gallons of water to created one roll of toilet paper? That seems like an even bigger waste of water IMO. The TUSHY bidet is an extremely sustainable and environmentally friendly product. It also limits your waste production.

 Myth 3: “Toilet paper cleans just as well. I splurge on the extra soft stuff.”

Truth: Toilet paper is playing you! Apart from leaving germs behind, toilet paper increases your chances of contaminating your hands with pee and poo. Because toilet paper tends to leaves stuff behind on your behind, there is an increased chance of skidmarks and other embarrassing side effects of a dirty booty. Using toilet paper excessively can lead to skin irritations because of its dry and abrasive nature. Toilet paper use can worsen bowel problems and skin infections. These may induce more pain and even bleeding in some cases. Wet wipes? Oh, don't even get us started on those death sheets.

Myth 4: “I don’t want the water to get all in my b-hole!”

Truth: It won’t ...unless you want it to? We all have our things. The TUSHY bidet stream is precise and accurate with a pressure strong enough to give you a thorough clean but gentle enough to not feel invasive. Direct the TUSHY bidet nozzle wherever you need it to go with the nozzle adjuster for a spot on spray.


Myth 5: “Bidets are expensive! I got kids to feed. I'm a plant dad.”

Truth: Some bidets are very expensive. The TUSHY bidet is only $69. If you want a simple bidet attachment that easily hooks up to your toilet and gets the job done, TUSHY bidet is the bidet for you.
