Menstrual cups are one of those things that may seem strange at first, but you eventually fall in love with it. The bolt may be another. Bullet is not common in the United States but is growing in popularity.
My husband and I travel quite a bit in terms of work and we have tried to participate in different parts. Here are the good, the bad and the ugly and why are we considering putting one in our home.
It might be a good time because we couldn’t find any toilet paper at the store!
What is Benedict?
To put it in fact (and not fragile), beds are bathroom fixtures that use water pressure to wash away genetic or anal parts after toilet use.
The first bullet appeared in France in the 18th century. “Bedet” is a French word meaning “pony.” The idea is that you rub the bolt as you would a pony.
It was invented at that time and for a while there, Beddart was used in the bedroom along with the chamber pot. In the early 20th century, when modern plumbing began to be built, the bullet moved to the bathroom.
Bytes are common in southern European countries such as Italy, Spain and Portugal, where they are now mandatory. They are also popular in other European countries and in South America, Southeast Asia, South Asia, Japan and parts of the Middle East.
Bolt comes in three main types. Stand-alone bolts, bidi shower (also known as handheld bolts or bolt sprayers), and add buttons. The one you choose will depend on your needs.
A stand-alone bullet (also called a bindet toilet) looks like a lower sink or water fountain (don’t drink from them!), Which often sits on the far right of the toilet and takes up the same amount of space. It often contains hot water and cold water knobs to adjust the water temperature.
Instead of installing something new, an Ed Bedite (also known as a Bedroom Toilet Set) is an easy way to add a bathroom to your bathroom. It’s a small bullet attached to the toilet seat, or it may be a new toilet seat already attached. It spills water at a specific location with the touch of a bolt button.
Some additives only use cold water. (It is thought that you will not feel cold by the stream of used water.) Others are locked in hot water lines or locked in hot water themselves. Some are electric and some are non-electric.
Bedatee shower is a handheld plumbing fixture much like a kitchen sink sprayer or diaper sprayer. With a bolt like this, you need to get the bidet spray nozzle in the right direction. This handheld bullet sprayer can be difficult to use for people who have low mobility or injuries who are looking for them. These make it difficult to work. Bonus: It’s inexpensive and usually doesn’t require professional installation.
We actually had one of those for years to clean cloth diapers, but I never thought of using it as a bedsheet!
Still not sure if you’ll try one? This model has automatic seat, remote control, massage wipe, self-cleaning function, and even blows hot air for a really clean and dry finish! If you take your “throne” seriously, this may be a bid for you.
Bolt is a rare bathroom item for many Americans (and sometimes worth it), but for others, it’s a new necessity. Some people traveling abroad discovered the bid during their travels and became spectators. Can’t eliminate the weirdness of the second thought. Still, somewhere in the middle.
These are some of the reasons our European friends have sworn that we will never go back to TP.
Most people agree that a bolt can do better cleaning than just toilet paper (especially if you are using a water filter). And if you think about it, that makes sense. We use water to wash every other part of our body, why not find it? Many people are using wet wipes instead of dry toilet paper. They benefit from the use of water for cleaning after the use of toilets. Another way to use bolt water is to achieve a cleaner finish.
Save the tree (and money)
Although many of us do not think too much about toilet paper (or its protection), the truth is that we use toilet paper every year. Bidding doesn’t necessarily eliminate the need for toilet paper, but it can reduce it a bit. Americans use an average of 50 pounds of toilet paper a year. Compare this to the countries around £ 23 in Europe. Perhaps, if we used bullets in the United States, we could reduce toilet paper consumption by almost half.
There is also a cost to consider. Toilet paper is considered important so many people do not recognize this cost. But the US spends $ 6 billion a year on toilet paper! Reducing the use of toilet paper can save a considerable amount of money for every family or household.
An unexpected benefit of bidding is that they can actually save water. Production of toilet paper consumes a lot of water and if we reduce the use of toilet paper, we also reduce water consumption.
Let’s do some math:
Bolt uses 1 / 8th of a gallon of water in each cleaning. In contrast, a roll of toilet paper requires 37 gallons of water (plus 1.3kW / hr (KWh) of electricity and about 1.5 pounds of wood). In my house, a roll of toilet paper doesn’t last long, especially with the garbage around. Even if you use toilet paper with a bid, it can save a lot of water.
Good for people with limited mobility
The use of toilet paper is something that requires a certain level of flexibility and strength. It may seem small to those of us who are fit and healthy but to others. , That can be a concern. Some elderly people or injured or disabled can regain the independence of the toilet using bids. That could mean improving their quality of life!
Good for sensitive skin
For people who suffer from hemorrhoids, irritation or other problems that cause irritation, the bolt can be great. Women who are just born can benefit from using bullets instead of toilet paper. Wiping with toilet paper can cause some irritation, and when irritation is already a problem, it can be difficult to stay clean. On the other hand, water is a comfortable and excellent cleaning agent.
In addition, toilet paper can surround bacteria rather than remove bacteria. A 2017 study reported that the use of bullets reduced hemorrhoids and urinary tract infections.
Of course, there are some bidding errors. Many people have some of these tips when considering a switch.
Depending on the kind of bullet you are, the cost may be higher. For example, if you have a stand-alone bid, it is not a matter of simply considering the cost of the bid itself. Many bathrooms do not already have space for toilets, so a major renovation is required. Even some add-ons can be hundreds of dollars. They have cool features like hot water and a timer, but you pay for them. However, if you are happy with the basic extra bid, the price may be reasonable.
Whether it is just weird about the bid, or the actual physical inconvenience of adjusting to the use of the bolt, some people may find it difficult to overcome the strange feelings associated with the bid. Generally, Americans have a negative relationship with the bid. There are some ideas about this. According to this article:
- Bolt came from France in the 18th century. At that time, Britain was no longer friends with the French. This theory is probably a follow-up to his theory of colonialism coming from the United States.
- During World War II, accounts are told of American soldiers who had succeeded in the French invasion. He could bring the house into an association that Byrds was immoral or filthy.
- Americans are conservative and prefer the use of paper to splash water on dirt and use hand for cleaning.
Also, Americans didn’t like talking about toilet paper for long. Around 1930, the German paper company Haikel advertised its toilet paper with conservatives in mind, “Ask for the role of the temple and you don’t have to say toilet paper!” This would mean that Americans were not aware of the bid until recently (or couldn’t think about it).
How to Use Bedate
For those who are willing to try the bid, here are the basics to use.
- After using the toilet, move to the stand alone bolt. You may face the bolt forward or backward (where the controls are). It depends on the model and what you want to clean. They usually don’t have bullet seats, but you can sit on the sidelines instead of folding.
- Some stand alone beds are made such as sink filled with water. In this case, you will use your hand to clean the area. Others use vertical water sprays to clean the area.
- Adjust the temperature until it’s comfortable (you can put your hands on the stream to try it out). Turn on the water stream to wash the area.
- When using the ad bonnet, activate the bolt after using the toilet. The bolt will splash water until you turn it off. Some even have a drying function.
- When using a bolt shower, place the shower head only where you want to wash and turn it on.
- Some people only use bolts, but others use bolts and toilet paper (either before or after using the bolts).
There are many types of bedset so it is best to read the instructions for your specific bolt before using it. Some have adjusted sprays for investigation, and other settings.
The bottom line on the badges
Bydates have gotten a bad rap (or no rap at all) in the United States. But they can be a good choice as an alternative (or vice versa) to toilet paper. Beds are healthy (many will argue more than toilet paper!) And save toilet paper. Toilet paper preparation costs a lot of water, wood and production energy, so bullet can be a great way to reduce our need for a single use product. Once you’ve hanged it, it’s easy to use!
