There are many benefits of using a bidet toilet seat; eco-friendly, more hygienic, economical, and therapeutic. Before we get into those benefits, lets first take a look at toilet paper.
Over 100,000,000 rolls of toilet paper are consumed every day throughout the world.
The United States uses over 3.2 million tons of toilet paper annually. In order to keep up with demand, 54 million trees per year are cut down which is causing a deforestation problem. In addition to deforestation, the production process itself is very destructive.
Each roll of toilet paper produced requires:
- 1.5 pounds of wood
- 7 to 37 gallons of water
- 1.3 KWH of electricity
- Harmful chlorine, sulfur and calcium carbonate
That doesn’t even take in account the amount of energy needed to ship the toilet paper from the factories to the stores.
like the Brondell Swash advanced toilet seats, reduce toilet paper consumption by 75-100%.
The benefits of using less toilet paper means less trees cut, less energy, water, and other resources for daily toilet paper production, and less double-flushing from clogged toilets.
A bidet toilet seat provides many medical benefits for women. During menstruation the bidet toilet seat provides an effective and natural way to eliminate vaginal odor throughout the month, and it is particularly useful during a period. Menstrual flow is not simply blood; it also contains cervical and vaginal mucus and degenerated endometrial particles. When this fluid comes in contact with bacteria in the air, it begins to decompose and can become odoriferous. The gentle cleansing of the feminine wash rinses the area clean, removes any odor and helps to make what can be an uncomfortable time of the month a little more pleasant. In addition, a bidet toilet seat and its dual wand system also serve to keep the rectal area clean.
Yeast infections can cause itching, discharge and unpleasant odor. While a bidet toilet seat can’t cure a yeast infection, it can provide soothing relief from the symptoms while treatment is being received from a gynecologist or over the counter medications.
A bidet toilet seat is ideal for pregnant women for many reasons:
Hemorrhoids -- Due to increased weight gain during pregnancy, women often develop hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoids are veins that swell and protrude around the anus. The symptoms are a painful burning sensation, itching, swelling and bleeding. Toilet paper often exacerbates hemorrhoid symptoms. The Swash's warm water posterior wash and air dryer eliminate the need for abrasive toilet paper and keep the affected area clean and dry, providing comfort and relief from tenderness and irritation.
Lack of Mobility - The changing shape and increased weight gain during pregnancy can make it awkward and difficult for expecting mothers to thoroughly clean themselves. A bidet toilet seat with a dual wand system provides excellent cleansing in both the feminine and posterior area.
- Cleanliness Before, During and after Delivery -- Women need extra help with cleanliness during pregnancy. Before the baby comes, women can experience the loss of the plug of mucus, water breaking and loss of amniotic fluid. The gentle cleansing of the bidet toilet seat provides comfort and relief.
There are also massive physical changes that occur during the first few weeks after giving birth which can be comforted by the bidet toilet seat and its gentle warm water wash:
Having a bidet toilet seat like a Brondell Swash in your home reduces toilet paper consumption via the effective cleansing of the warm water wash and optional warm air dryer. In addition, a Swash only uses an average 3-7 cents of electricity per day, even less when the power saving feature is activated.
A bidet toilet seat eliminates the need for abrasive toilet paper thereby helping those who suffer from hemorrhoids, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), incontinence, Crohn’s Disease and a whole a lot more as listed below. You now can enjoy a warm water jet, warm air dryer clean and a complete and gentle cleansing without the harsh, irritable toilet paper it presents.
