There are lots of reasons to look for an alternative to toilet paper. I personally hate the stuff myself, and it’s a big reason that I use bidets pretty much as often as possible (do you know you can even get a portable bidet?).
Here’s why a bidet toilet is a great alternative to toilet paper:
1. You’re washing off the toilet residue instead of spreading it around.
The number one reason I hate toilet paper is because when you “wipe” you are really just spreading all the stuff you are wiping around. You do get a lot of it off, but where does the rest go exactly? When you use a bidet all “the rest” goes in the toilet where it belongs.
2. It feels better.
Toilet paper is kind of scratchy. Even the high end stuff. Bidets feel better. The water takes a little getting used to, but it makes you feel so darn good. Fresh and clean. Which is awesome.
3. If you get constipated a bidet can do something about it.
This is a unique feature of a bidet. But most people have occasional constipation. And if you do than a bidet can loosen you up without straining. Can toilet paper do that. Nope… don’t think so.
4. No paper to flush.
Americans flush 5 billion dollars, 36.5 billion toilet paper rolls, or 20 million trees a year down the toilet. With a bidet there is no paper waste. Simply water (about the same amount you use in a normal flush) and a little bit of electricity if you want heated water and a dryer. Overall, a bidet is much less wasteful than toilet paper.
5. It feels better.
I know I mentioned this before, but it bears repeating. A bidet toilet feels AWESOME. It’s a great toilet paper alternative.
