It doesn’t have to be that way. Bidet seats are easy to use and diminish the discomfort of reaching around and twisting to wipe. There are pre-set adjustable spray, nozzle positions, and water pressure as well as a remote control for easy use in getting thoroughly clean. A gentle water spray and drying option (depending on the model) even elevates the act.
Elderly persons who may suffer from arthritis or other ailments are often less agile and using a bidet seat can increase their comfort level. In case of constipation or troubled bowl movements, a strong, pulsating, warm water stream could also help to provide faster relief.
Cleaning with water instead of paper may reduce infections or hemorrhoids, and other age-related inconveniences. An automatic built-in deodorization takes away the worry about bathroom odors. In addition, bidet seats save water and can give older people independence, privacy, and dignity.
If the ability to read comic books on a warm toilet seat and personal well-being have not convinced you yet, the eco-savings probably will.
