Why are there so many friends of bidets?
They offer a better and more effective form of cleanliness. The water jet first coarsely sprays all dirty areas. No smearing occurs. And you save a lot of toilet paper. The paper is then only used for fine cleaning. It can even be thrown into the trash can without it stinking. This means that toilets are not clogged and you don’t pollute the sewage too much.
