Have you ever had the opportunity to use a bidet? Bidets have been in use for centuries and are popular in many countries around the world. While they are just beginning to gain popularity in the United States, bidets are known for their ability to promote health and hygiene while being more environmentally friendly than traditional toilet paper usage. If you are new to using a bidet, it is important to be aware of the best practices. In this post, we will discuss some bidet best practices to help you optimize your use of this helpful bathroom fixture.
How long do you let a bidet run?
The answer to this question is simple: however long you want! The longer you let the bidet run, the cleaner you will be. However, it's important to note that you don't have to let it run for a long time. A quick burst of water is often enough to get the job done. User preference can also adjust your position, which allows you to clean yourself more effectively. Play around with the settings until you find what works best for you.
When you're finished using the bidet, make sure you turn it off. Leaving the bidet running can waste water, which is not good for the environment or your water bill.
It's also important to note that bidets are not just for women. Men can benefit from using a bidet as well, especially if they have prostate issues or hemorrhoids.
How do you keep a bidet clean?
Keeping your bidet clean is important for your health and hygiene. Most bidets come with a self-cleaning function, which is great for everyday use. However, you should still clean your bidet regularly to remove any buildup of dirt or bacteria.
To clean your bidet, use a mild soap and water solution. You can also use a disinfectant wipe or spray. Make sure you clean both the inside and outside of the bidet, including any nozzles or buttons. Don't forget to dry the bidet after cleaning to prevent water spots or mold.
How does a bidet fit onto the toilet fixture?
Bidets come in different shapes and sizes, but most are designed to fit onto your existing toilet fixture. Installation is usually quick and easy, and you don't need any special tools. Simply remove your existing toilet seat and replace it with the bidet attachment. Follow the manufacturer's instructions carefully to ensure proper installation.
If you're not comfortable installing the bidet yourself, you can always hire a professional plumber to do it for you. It's a small investment that will pay off in the long run.

A footstool is designed to help you achieve the perfect position for sitting on the toilet to do your business. It is a handy tool that can be used in the bathroom to help achieve better bowel movements during defecation. When we sit on a traditional toilet, our body is in a position that is not ideal for efficient bowel elimination. This is because the position of our rectum is not fully open, which can cause straining and constipation. However, by using a footstool, we can elevate our feet and change the angle of our body to create a more natural squatting position, which allows for better alignment of the rectum and colon.
Change Your Toilet Seat Every Five Years
Finally, it's important to note that you should change your toilet seat every five years. Over time, toilet seats can become worn or damaged, which can lead to hygiene issues. Changing your toilet seat can help ensure that your bidet stays clean and effective.
