The bidet has been used for centuries and is believed to have originated in France in the late 1600s. Today, these fixtures can be found across Europe, the Mediterranean, the Middle East, South America, and Asia. While they are found in many countries around the world, these fixtures are new and unfamiliar to the American home. If you have never used a bidet before, let’s take a moment to talk about the benefits of installing one in your home.
Going Green with a Bidet
Installing this fixture in your home will not only benefit you and your family, but it will also benefit the environment. On average, Americans use an average of 36.5 billion rolls of toilet paper per year. This means approximately 15 million trees are pulped in order to produce this much toilet tissue. But when you install a bidet in your home, you will be eliminating nearly 90 percent of your paper use. Go green with a bidet today!
Get Clean with a Bidet
Every inch of our homes and bodies are cleaned with water. From our laundry to our windows to our bodies, every element of our lives is cleaned with water. So why do we use toilet paper to clean ourselves? When you install a bidet in your home, you will be and feel cleaner than ever.
Helps with Health Concerns
Bidets can also help people with health concerns. Eighty percent of all infectious diseases are spread by skin-to-skin contact. With only 50 percent of people washing their hands correctly, these diseases could spread quickly. But by using a hands-free bidet, you are dramatically reducing the number of germs that are being transmitted among people. Bidets can also help people with both constipation and hemorrhoids find relief. Some bidets come with specialty features to help relieve these health problems with a gentle touch.
