The Bidet will Wash and Dry by the touch of a button.
This futuristic bathroom feature will eliminate paper waste,
sanitation will be upgraded and giving a nice new water cleansing to
your day. I can see new homes and new apartment complexes
with this idea being added within the next two generations. Sewer problems
could be lessened too. I read or seen on a television program that Japan
has these installed along with a warming seat.
I love this idea! I hope that this device will be available very soon.
And I hate to point out the obvious on a writer's site but you should have said "I read or saw" not seen.
I believe this is one of big reason..
Toilet Paper will not remove bacteria from squander
I use MB-2000 at home and I am consider to get E-200A
I would really love to see this implemented for sure
We have a toilet at one of our showrooms that does this. You press one button to wash yourself with water, then another to dry yourself. I understand that this type of toilet is widespread in Japan, but over here in the UK it's yet to catch on - largely because such a system is pretty expensive and we don't sell an awful lot of them.
To me toilet paper will always be more convinient and I can't really see this changing for the majority of the population anytime soon.
And it will do this while using only 1.6 gallons of water?
The article did not give the amount of water that would be used for the bidet. I will google this to get more specifics. Thanks wilderness.
Although you would never find it, it would be interesting to know how much energy this thing would require as opposed to the energy to produce, transport and dispose of the appropriate amount of toilet tissue. I'm assuming the drying action is via heat, not a hurricane of air like a hand dryer.
Truthfully, it looks to me like another near useless gimmick - another toy to use up limited resources we all need in return for a little luxury.
www.wikihow.com/Use-a-Bidet - quite the process - it uses hot water - too. It is cleaner than a regular toilet once you learn it.
I have been in European hotels in the 80s that had a bidet. As Crocodile Dundee said, "Oh, I get it! You push a little button to wash your backside!" It didn't use toilet paper.
I don't remember how we got dry, but it was much nicer than using toilet paper. (hands free -- and considering all the studies done on how much fecal bacteria there are on handrails, smart phones, and everything else people touch, there could be major sanitation advantages).
I am surprised to find so much information on the Bidet. They are available at Home Depot, Amazon - plus many other companies. All prices and styles. The French developed the Bidet in 1710. Yes - they save electricity, water and paper. Complete personal hygiene is accomplished with the Bidet. B-Day. - they are electronic and you may adapt a heater.
The first image that sprang into my demented mind was of a skydivers face when at maximum airspeed and the screaming mouth blown open !!!! sorry to put that image into anyone's mind but when this gadget arrives I want to see all the safety devices before I use it !
There are several brands of retrofit bidet attachments on the market, and they work successfully. Most do not come with heated water or dryers. My family wouldn't be without theirs, and nobody even notices the cold water on the hiney. The only problem is that one must use a towel to dry off. It would take too much toilet paper to dry off a wet bottom. LOL
Bill Gates wants to re-invent the toilet - there is an article on-line in Time World - this is an idea for countries where they cannot flush their waste and his idea would turn their waste into compost - other ideas concerning urine being converted into powder form and used for fertilizer. It would be the ultimate toilet the article states. Bill Gates Toilet Project - News Results - I could not copy the link. As far as the Bidet - it has a dryer - maybe some would not want to wait to be completely dry.
Oh wow, is this gadget going to hike our utility bills? mine is high enough.
The new invented toilet that I mentioned, Bill Gates is working with Germany on - is for poor countries that are not flushing their wastes. Bidets,however are available in numerous stores if you wish to convert your present bathroom toilet facilities. I read an article in.aarp.org stating that the future may bring the Bidet toilet to homes for savings and cleanliness of the person and sewers.
Well, this didn't catch on 40 years ago (except maybe in Japan), I doubt it will this time.
Color me skeptic.
I think bidet is only good if you have that at home. What about when you use it in the toilet of a shopping mall and your lower clothes will get wet? I just can´t imagine using it.

I have the following link that you may want to view for Bidet use.
I have never used one - I imagine the dryer would help - possibly you
would lower those clothes so they wouldn't get wet. There are different models.

What is the history of the modern day toilet and bidet?

I have three Papillons and two of them have a thing for tissue paper and toilet paper that is over the top. They seem to find it no matter where we hide it and shred it all over the house. Worse, they eat it. Any tips on getting them to cease and desist?

Hi Hubbers,I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my article Your tap water is it safe (must be signed in to view). What can I do to improve? Thanks!

Which way do you hang toilet paper? Does the loose edge go in front, or in the back?There's a big flap over how you hang toilet tissue rolls. Some insist the cut edge should be in front and some want the edge hanging in back. What do you prefer? And why? Any fights in your house over...
