    You could save a lot of money using a squirt bottle.
    If your hands are dirty, you wouldn't want to just wipe em.
    This thread calls for TMI, so I'll say that I first wipe using
    about three squares, then squirt warm water and towel dry.

    Ok, you people have talked me into it. I ordered one yesterday from Amazon and it has been shipped. $399.99 plus tax. Heated seat, heated water, air dry. This better work well.

    I dont know anything about the bidet you ordered but I can tell you once you go bidet you can never go back. It is a life changing experience. You go from living like an animal who smears poop on his butt to living like a King who has his poop washed from his butt.

    We have one. It is useful but you still need a little TP to dry yourself.
    It was really useful when I had to do a colonoscopy prep. No more sore bottom from repeated wiping!

    Oh hell yeah. TP by itself does not get you truly clean "down there". Huggies FTW.

    Yeah, but then you have to wipe one last time. To get rid of that slimy, lotion-in-your-crack feeling.

    We have flushable wipes, but I don't like putting too many of those down into my septic tank. I doubt if they break down as easy as TP.

    None of those wipes are "flush"-able, they do not break down well without mechanical agitation.
    Good luck if they plug up your pipes or sewer system.

    Society still exists, as we have water, electricity, sewage, and internet. Cars work too. Plumbers still can function.

    Our local sewer system has grinders to take care of stuff like that.

    O.K. it washes, but does it dry? That's where you still need toilet paper. Like if you wash your hands, you still need to dry them. Same thing with your bunghole.

    I was talking to some friends I hadn't seen for while and I asked my friend's wife how they were fixed for toilet paper and she said they got a bidet last year and they didn't need toilet paper. So I said to her that a bidet washes but doesn't dry so you still need toilet paper. And then they said that they got one that has both hot and cold water and a hot air dryer.

    This is the first time I've heard of that because most "add-on" bidet attachments, you're lucky to have warm water (cold water for washing purposes is uncivilized) and I never knew there was one that had a hot air blower but apparently theirs is not an add-on, it's a whole other toilet with a built-in bidet with warm water and a hot air blower.

    I used to work for a General contractor in Los Angeles and we did jobs in the Hollywood hills, Beverly hills, and Malibu. And I installed a number of bidets that were separate units next to the toilet. And next to the bidet there was always a separate toilet paper roll or else a single toilet paper roll between the toilet and the Bidet.

    At one use I worked on, the clients had gone to Europe while we remodeled the house, so one day I tested out the Bidet and thought it was a pretty good thing. But now I'm thinking that the ols style bidets wer not as good and the newer toilets with the bidets built in becaue the earlier ones you had to get off the toilet after going number two, and then hop on the Bidet for the hose-down, and then finish up with the toilet paper.

    Mine even blows warm air on your 'downward areas' when it is done spraying the hot water up into your business! :devildance:

    But I generally finish the project with a little paper so that it's pristine.
