In the 17th century, French furniture makers invented the bidet, a common bathroom fixture in the Arab World, southern Europe and West Africa. Though North Americans have resisted the innovation, more U.S. residents have embraced it, particularly during nationwide toilet paper shortages.
Now, bidets have evolved from emergency personal hygiene alternatives to just one more feature in a luxurious bathroom.
What is a Bidet?
A bidet’s primary purpose is personal hygiene. While most people use dry toilet paper, a bidet offers a wet alternative.
Bidets can be freestanding, separate fixtures; toilet seat replacements with jets; or handheld attachments that spray water.
Regardless of the type of fixture, each has the same function: to provide the best personal cleansing experience.
Bidets also have environmental benefits, reducing the need for toilet paper and stress on forests. In fact, North Americans annually use 36.5 billion rolls of toilet paper, so switching from dry to wet cleaning methods could save 15 million trees, according to Scientific American.
