Japanese bidet on 01/02/2014 12:37:37 MST Print View

A friend of mine from Japan sent me this bidet. I was able to use it on a trip this weekend. It's maybe not the lightest or smallest thing you can use, but it was effective, which is possibly more important. Good aim, strong flow. No need for toilet paper.

Japanese clean wash bidet

I believe you can find this or similar products on Amazon.

Since I saw a LOT of toilet paper on my 2-night hike, I felt I should put this out there for those looking for an alternative to toilet paper and an easier way to go leave no trace with your toileting business. Millions of Japanese germaphobes can't be wrong.

Does that thing come with a video on how to use it?

There is a video online if you search Amazon for this product. Basically that long thin thing is pulled out from the bottle until it snaps into the extended position. When you squeeze the bottle, a stream of water comes out the end. There are two nozzles to choose from, one for "men" and one for "women". You twist to get either one. The "men" one is a straight stream and the "women" one is a scattered stream. I suppose more accurately, if you are a woman anyway, one is for poo and the other for pee?

Uh.... I was joking.

I do NOT want to watch someone use that thing.

Katherina, I'm scratching my head, Don't understand what you mean. It's the closest thing to a portable bidet that I can think of. Unless you mean in the video?

I'd never seen that here, so it's an interesting find. And solves some persistent problems with carrying toilet paper.

I guess I am nit picking, but so few understand what a true bidet is intended for. It is not intended to substitute for toilet paper. If one wants to poop and then squirt water and have that water run down their legs, or something like that, I have no problem with it, but I am not going to do that.
A bidet is intended to wash one's genitalia, anus and feet when one cannot shower daily, not as a substitute for toilet paper.

Also, a woman may want to be careful not to use it after defecating and accidentally spreading the bacteria forward.

I was raised with one and found it very useful.

Want to call it bidet, fine, I will shut up about it now.

One request though Miguel.......my name.....it's Katharina, not Katherina.

unacceptable on this forum, unless it comes in Titanium, SnowPeak or from a modified redbull can.

:)

Thanks for the info. It's educational to know about such product.
I'm thinking about cheap restaurant style ketchup squeeze bottle types, that don't have the attachments. And for contact lense people, the big Opti-Free saline squeeze bottle.

Oops, have I been getting it wrong all this time? Sorry! Two close friends of my family are called Katherina, so I automatically jumped to that.

As to the bidet... well, I was raised with one, too! And yes, you are right for what it is supposed to be used for. But out in the woods? What else would you call it? Seems appropriate to me. And gets the image across when explaining it to someone.
