Toilet paper is main way of wiping ourselves after defecating over here. Personally we use toilet wipe wipes which are more hygienic, however there is a question about how quickly they biodegrade and can only use one per flush incase it blocks the soil pipes. Our bathrooms aren't big enough for bidets aswell although I did see a toilet with and added shower thing which I suppose is to save on space. Two questions though... at what point do you know you are 'clean'? Also, how do you not get water all over your clothes? I am clumsy, haven't got good aim either and not afraid to admit it... I can imagine walking out out the bathroom with wet patches over my clothes!! These are genuine questions as I have never used water that way and I am curious.1-ReplyLyn W2 years agoLyn WBloomjng autocorrect.... meant to say that we personally use toilet wet wipes.1-ReplyInvincible2 years agoLyn WTis easy..bidet does do a deep clean enough that you can feel it down there..2-ReplyKerry Campbell2 years agoLyn WAnd clog up the sewage system--ReplyLyn W2 years agoKerry CampbellActually I use Tesco toddler wipes which has been certified by the UK waterboard to be 'flush safe'... so they do not clog up the sewage system... other wipes and ofcourse baby wipes that aren't meant to flush down the toilet will clog up the sewage system but the ones I use don't and are safe to flush!--ReplyOcay Frexy2 years agoLyn WWe use bidet to clean "down there" and toilet paper to wipe it dry. Then use soap to wash our hands. You should try to use our public toilets and you'll know.1-ReplyBerkay Alper2 years agoLyn WYou don't need a bidet to occupy your floor space. Just a pipe/hose is enough. Check for "bidet shower" online. This is how we do in Muslim countries (I'm not Muslim)1-ReplyDebra Harrell2 years agoLyn WRight.

We've been using them for decades. Nobody here has that extra toilet seat to take up space in bathrooms. The shower is handy and very easy to use :)--Replylilian donoghueyear agoLyn WWhen you use the bidet, you actually use your hand to clean yourself. Like you would in the shower. Hence, the one hand eating rule in India. You never eat with the hand that you wash yourself with. There are also many toilets with a built-in bidet.--ReplyPercy Guevara2 years agoWe have toilet paper, tissue or wet wipes at home. Even man or woman always bring outside home. You know we prefer to use water first then wipe it with tissue most are woman. Then wash hand after alcohol. Thank you.2-ReplyAlphá Ironside2 years agoI don’t think using only toilet paper is hygienic enough so we use water and then use toilet paper to dry.2-ReplyDebra Harrell2 years agoThat's the way I would like to wipe--ReplyEkomobong Fortune2 years agoSome people in Nigeria do use toilet papers to clean down there, but some others use water.
