By now, the toilet paper hoarding is old news. However, for the sake of using less to save more, I have a budget suggestion so you can save on that precious commodity. Install a bidet!
Prior to my hemorrhoidectomy in the fall, I decided that it would be an easier and more gentle way to let water do the cleaning. I am somewhat embarrassed to even say that I had that surgery, which is why I haven’t yet blogged about it!
I ordered the Luxe Bidet Neo 185 from Amazon, which is a non-electrical self-cleaning model that attaches to the cold water supply valve. But don’t worry about literally freezing your butt off - you won’t need to operate the bidet for that long a period of time to get the job done.
There are now a number of different types that are easy to install with a little know-how and good hands. If I were a little more agile and had better hand mobility, even I could install it. “It’s just that easy!” as Shel Busey, a local home improvement radio and television personality used to say.
This particular model has a male and female spray, although either works fine; it depends how you perch on your throne. There is also a self-cleaning function.
A word of caution: when I was showing a friend the features, I almost soaked her. You need to be seated in order to prevent a fountain of water from spraying across the room.
As far as the toilet paper budget goes; it is a savings. I’ve noticed I’m using far less toilet paper and that’s money that you won’t be flushing down the toilet!
