Step 1 -Use the toilet first. The purpose of the bidet is to help clean off after toilet use. While some people believe that using a bidet is a hygienic substitute for toilet paper, many choose to use both.
Step 2 -Straddle the bidet. On most standalone bidets you can either face the bidet's water controls or you can face away from them, as you would on a toilet. It is easier to control the flow and temperature of the water if you face the controls, but if you are wearing pants you will generally need to remove them in order to straddle the bidet in this manner. There are a variety of bidet designs, so the configuration of the jets and the area of your body that you wish to clean may dictate which way you need to face.
Step 3 -Adjust the temperature and jet strengths for comfort. If the bidet has both hot and cold water controls, start by turning on the hot water. Once it's hot, add the cold water until you have a comfortable temperature. (In normally hot climates, such as the middle east, you should start with the cold water. The water will not need time to heat up and you may end up burning sensitive areas if you turn the hot water on first.)
Be very careful when turning on the water, as many bidets can produce a very high jet of water with only a slight turn of the control.Be sure that you know where the water will be coming from ahead of time, or you could end up with a surprise shower. If your bidet does have a spray nozzle set in the bowl (unlikely in the UK due to regulations), place your hand above it to subdue any jet of water and then either press or pull the diverter lever between or immediately behind the taps.You may find that you need to hold the control to keep the jets on.
Step 4 -Position yourself over the water jets so that the jets hit the desired area. For some bidets you can continue to hover above the bidet or you can sit down on it. Note that most bidets don't have seats, but are still meant to be sat upon; you just sit directly on the rim. Some bidets do not have jets, but instead simply have a faucet that fills the basin, as you would fill a sink basin.
Step 5 -Clean anal area and/or genitals. Clean the desired area using your hands, as you would when taking a shower.
Step 6 -Dry your skin. Some bidets have a built-in air dryer that you can use. For others, simply pat dry with toilet paper. Many bidets have a towel on a ring positioned next to the bidet. This is for drying the genitals or the hands but sometimes it is used for mopping up any splashes around the rim after rinsing it.
Step 7 -Rinse out the bidet. Once you are off the bidet, run the jets at very low pressure for a few seconds to rinse the basin and keep the bidet fresh.
- They are especially helpful for people with hemorrhoids, since they reduce the amount of repetitive wiping that is needed.
-The use of a bidet can help women when menstruating and prevent or minimize the occurrence of yeast infections or vaginitis.
-You can use a bidet to quickly wash your feet.
-Dry wipe at least once after having a bowel movement and before using the bidet. Excess feces remains may clog the bidet drain. This can be quite horrid for someone who uses the bidet after you.
-Some people use bidets to bathe babies. This should not be done unless this is the sole use for the bidet
-Drinking from a bidet is not recommended.
