Good Bidet to You: Meet The Bathroom Accessory You Didn’t Know You Needed

By: Emily McCrary-Ruiz-Esparza

It seems there are better bidets ahead. The very fine—and, dare we say, very clean—folks at TUSHY want to change the way you go. Welcome the bidet that needs no electricity or plumbing and that can be installed in less than 10 minutes.

TUSHY uses clean water (which it gets from the tap that supplies your toilet tank) and pressure to get you hygienically clean. Control the pressure and angle to make sure you get clean exactly where you need to.

The idea is that bidets are cleaner than toilet paper when it comes to, well, lots of things, “just like rinsing your hands off in water is more hygienic than just rubbing them on a dry paper towel,” says Dr. Roshini Rajapaksa, gastroenterologist and associate professor of medicine at the NYU school of medicine.

“Bidets are a great way to gently and effectively clean the anal area after a bowel movement, particularly for people who have a hard time feeling fully clean (those with irritable bowel syndrome or inflammatory bowel disease) or those with anal issues like hemorrhoids or anal fissures. The water pressure from a bidet is much less irritating than dry toilet paper.”

Bidets might also be considered eco-friendly, if you factor in the toilet paper you save with this magical little attachment.

A traditional bidet is a plumbing fixture that looks a lot like a toilet and requires its own plumbing connection, and a fixture like this can run you between $200 and $500, so it’s quite refreshing to the bidet reinvented—and at an affordable price point.

TUSHY comes in white, noir, blue, and pink and costs between $69.00 and $79.00 (depending on color).
