What are bidet toilet seats?

While the very word “bidet” is often associated with high-end luxury items, it doesn’t have to be. Thanks to the affordable bidet toilet seats, that favorite ivory throne of yours can be responsible for making you feel clean and fresh after each and every use.

Let’s just get the main question out of the way:  What exactly is a bidet toilet seat/ bidet sprayer thing?

 In a way, you can think of a bidet toilet seat as the high performance sports car of which you’ve always dreamed. Okay, okay – maybe not that fancy – but it sure would be an upgrade to your current seating arrangements in the bathroom. Basically, a bidet toilet seat replaces your existing toilet seat and can even be used in bathrooms with a limited footprint. Even if you don’t have room for a traditional bidet, if you have a toilet, you have room for a bidet toilet seat!

Okay, so now you are probably wondering how these work.  Good question, followed by an extremely easy answer.

A bidet toilet seat relies on a steady stream of warm water to get the job done, if you will, taking over where toilet paper leaves off. Actually, forget about toilet paper. Sure, after using a bidet sprayer, you may need a square or two to dab off when you are finished, but the warm stream of water is what will get you squeaky clean. You really cannot rely on toilet paper alone to clean you properly. Can you effectively clean a mess off of your kitchen counter top with a dry rag or dry paper towel? Not really. You’d have to grab some soap and water to clean up the mess. So, how do you expect a bit of toilet paper to thoroughly clean your back end? Consider a bidet toilet seat as the perfect tool and complement to your modern day bathroom. We like to think of it as the best thing invented since indoor plumbing.

Now you might be asking, “Why would I even want to replace my conventional toilet seat with a bidet toilet seat?”

  If you like to be completely clean, that may be the best answer yet. Don’t you deserve it and owe it to yourself to emerge from the bathroom feeling fully clean and fresh? We think so and are here to make that happen for you.

We can already anticipate your next question – “From where does the water come that is used by the bidet toilet seat?”

 Before you assume it comes directly from the toilet bowl itself, let us assure you it comes directly from the water line that fills the toilet tank, and out the bidet sprayer nozzle. In other words, it comes from your home’s water system. And if you need additional reassurance that the water used with the bidet toilet seat is clean and sanitary, you can install additional filters to give you that peace of mind.

Of course, there are those of you who might ask, “Will a bidet toilet seat save me money?” (You are going to love, love, love this answer!)

Guess what? With a bidet toilet seat, you will probably find yourself making less trips to the store to stock up on toilet paper. And as a side benefit, you are part of the movement to save the trees and embrace an environmentally conscious mindset. That makes you a hero!  With a bidet toilet seat, less money is spent all around on water, electricity and the chemicals used to make toilet paper. This puts less stress on your city’s waste water systems, as they have less waste to remove. It’s no secret that these water facilities are not only clogged up with excess toilet paper but also with those pesky flush-able wet wipes, creating additional and undue stress on the systems. Sure, those wipes are flush-able, but did you know they don’t disintegrate? Further, they simply cannot clean you as well as a bidet toilet seat!

A bidet toilet seat is perfect for the elderly, too, or for those with certain physical limitations, as less motion is required to achieve that perfectly clean feeling. The bidet toilet seats also come in a variety of options from which to choose, including heated seats, self-cleaning nozzles, warm air dyers, temperature controls on both the water and the seat, adjustable water pressure, a deodorizer (now we got your attention!), remote control (seriously????), and energy saving features.

Still not convinced?  Some of these bidet toilet seats come fully-equipped with a self-lifting and self-closing lid and even LED night lights. No more mishaps and accidents in the middle of the night! You can thank us later.

In a nutshell, bidet toilet seats offer so many benefits in today’s word. Not just an environmentally-friendly option, it is also a pretty cool way to incorporate some 21st century technology into your bathroom. Buy a bidet sprayer today! You won’t regret it!
