n general terms bidets in the home were introduced Toilet paper Class of 2020 the year when shit got real shirt became as popular as they now are. To get really clean a bidet was therefore a more practical solution than having a bath as you only need to partly undress to use a bidet. Assuming your toilet is in the same room as your shower, it would be almost as practical to shower as it would be to use a bidet. An alternative to a bidet are the Japanese style toilets with built in shower nozzle and air dryer. These are even more expensive to buy and install as they need an electrical connection. I’ve used one them and think they are great, though because you can’t see if you’re really clean or not it’s still advisable to wipe with paper and to see if the paper is clean.
Another alternative is to use a hose with Toilet paper Class of 2020 the year when shit got real shirt head that you reach around with one hand to use, though these have yet more problems. When working in countries that use these it’s common to find that water has been sprayed all over the toilet and floor and even to find someone else’s faecal matter on the shower head. Bactria cannot live in a dry environment but they love water, so any water droplets are likely to be contaminated with faecal matter. Using a hose on a normal sitting toilet (usually with cold water) does not lend itself to the use of soap, so all one is doing is washing off most and diluting the rest which flies around in tiny airborne droplets.
