Bidets=No Toilet Paper

      Bidets=NO Toilet Paper!!??  I THINK NOT (NOT with an attitude.)

     That's what an ad on my blog said yesterday.  I am not supposed to click on my own ads (you can though!  And you can help me earn money for things like..... um........ let's say........ toilet paper!!)

     This advertisement was saying if one were to buy a bidet, one would not have to buy toilet paper.  COME ON!!!  There is no way that something spraying a gentle squirt of water on my children's booties (not mine of course... I don't do things like that.)  ( I don't.) is going get all that "stuff" off.  NO WAY!

     I mean, don't get me wrong.  I wish it would work.  With 7 people living in this house, toilet paper is a scarce commodity.  It is VERY common to hear, "I NEED TOILET PAPER!!" coming from one our 3 bathrooms.  So, if I thought paying $89.95 + shipping and handling, for a bidet would cut down on the cost of buying toilet paper, I'd seriously get it.  But, they would have to insure me that the spray would be equal to that of a power washer.  Cuz, nothing else is going to get the barnacles off their booties. 

     And, what's up with all the toilet ads on my blog??  Are they trying to hint that my blog is crappy??

     So, what is your experience with bidets?  Would you ever get one?  Do you think this would ensure you would no longer have to buy TP?   

    Seriously, tell me what you think?!

     A bidet is not going to help me in a situation like this.  Yes, it is what you think it is.... and she is standing in a puddle of urine too... you just can't see it!

Well I do have to say that the *magic* wand that they give you to use in the hospital after delivery is pretty much the same concept. And to be honest, I personally thought that was a slice of heaven! Maybe because there were stitches involved...anyway...I guess the effectiveness would all depend on the force behind the spray. You would however need TP for the drying off I would think.
Great topic April! :)

Hmm...I do love the thing they give you in the hospital after you have a baby. I never thought of it that way. I was going to say I thought it was so gross, but I might have changed my mind. Nah...I still hate them.

Although said humorously your comment about the bidet's spray strength is more appropriate than you know because the water spray is NOT hard enough with them. The better solution and cheaper(under $50.00) is a hand bidet sprayer. A hand held bathroom bidet sprayer is so much better than a stand alone bidet or bidet seat and this is why:1. It's less expensive (potentially allot less) 2. You can install in yourself = no plumber expense 3. It works better by providing more control of where the water spray goes and a greater volume of water flow. 4. It requires no electricity and there are few things that can go wrong with it. 5. It doesn't take up any more space, many bathrooms don't have room for a stand alone bidet. 6. You don’t have to get up and move from the toilet to the bidet(for the stand alones) which can be rather awkward at times to say the least. Available at One review:

Ok, no idea who Jeff9 is, and I hope he isn't like your brother or something because that dude knows WAY too much about bidets. WAY. WAY.
I did "get" to use them while I was in Japan a few summers ago. It is just weird.
You have the best posts lady.

Haha, on my Argentina mission trip back in 2003, I was puzzled by the toilet looking thing with the water hose. Imagine the look on my chaperone's face trying to explain that one! lol

Does knowing WAY WAY too much about bidets mean I'm too clean or too knowledgeable? Either one if ok by me. One blogger did call me the toilet messiah, not a bad moniker. Cheers, Jeff
