Yes, I tried it. And it’s amazing.
For years America has resisted the bidet, but the time has come to accept it with open arms…and legs. The bidet was invented in France in the 1600s as a bedroom accompaniment to the chamber pot. With time and advances in plumbing, the bidet became situated in the bathroom next to the toilet. You will most likely see them during your honeymoon travels (they are not urinals), depending on your chosen locale, but bidets are quite common around the world, and now have become a simple, economical attachment available to Americans via Superior Bidet.
I was able to attach my Superior Bidet to my toilet in less than 15 minutes, and as soon as I sat down, I braced myself for the jarring stream of water that I have now come to love. My bidet has two streams, front and back, so I can feel clean during my time of the month in addition to after my daily, morning cup of coffee. Once I’m clean, all that’s left is a couple pats with toilet paper to dry myself. I now save some dough by using less toilet paper (bride on a budget here!), and the bidet even has it’s own self-cleaning nozzle. Isn’t that ironic?
Plus, when my fiancé and I eventually move out of our apartment, we will take our Superior Bidet with us and attach it in our new home. Bidets make a great gift for new homeowners as they easily upgrade your bathroom space without expensive renovations. All of our guests come out of our bathrooms with smiles on their faces and excitedly ask us, “Is that a bidet?!”
“Yep! Try it out!” we answer in unison. Okay, maybe not in unison, but we’ll work on it.
All in all, whether you are looking to upgrade your personal hygiene or your bathroom, or are simply inspired by your worldly honeymoon travels, Superior Bidet can help you clean up your act and make you a trendsetter.
