As a modern civilization, we have come a long way and as the time passes we evolve more and more, as well as change and advance in every field. This is especially true about the way we do our personal hygiene and that we think we always do it in the right and perfect way.
But let’s remember how things were before 100 – 200 years ago, when people didn’t even had toilet paper, and when it comes to maintaining our behind part, we got things wrong for sure.
We all think that going to the bathroom is nothing complicated, because we all have bathrooms, there is always a three – layer toilet paper, we wipe, flush and we wash our hands after it. This is how today’s people do it, how we were taught as kids. But, somehow, some steps may not be recommended, as well as some of them we may not do as we should.
When we go to the bathroom, we should wipe our butt from the bottom up and avoid transferring the bacteria from the feces to our private parts up front. We should do that until we don’t get pure white toilet paper. And still, you cannot be sure that you got everything right, because there are things that cannot be seen with naked eye. So wiping your butt with toilet paper is a completely wrong step which instead of cleaning it smears the feces all around. The perfect way will be washing your behind with water.
People have invented something for that purpose years ago, but we have just stopped using it. You can’t hop in the shower every time you go to the toilet but you can install a bidet which serves this purpose alone. Very few people have it these days but its benefits are beyond words. Except maintaining personal hygiene, you will also save the planet. The United States use over 35 billion rolls of toilet paper every year and their production requires 1.7 trillion liters of water and 250 tons of chlorine. All that water spent just for making a piece of paper for wiping your behind.
For that purpose, stop using toilet paper, and wash your behind instead. You won’t be waisting the water if you install bidet in your toilet.
