Review: Best Bidet

A growing number of Americans are finding bidets more refreshing and sanitary to use than just toilet paper. Broader environmental awareness about the vast number of trees cut daily and huge water requirements in toilet paper production is also causing many homeowners to switch to bidets. A more recent example is the toilet paper shortage induced by panic-buying during the early months of 2020, but we won't discuss that any further.

Bidets come in different forms, from hand-helds (shower and travel bidets) to bidet seats and attachments, which are either manually or power-operated. We're sharing five attachments from the non-electrical—also called mechanical—segment to help you decide on the best model for your home. Here are some of the best bidets in 2021.

Meanwhile, you can allow water to wash over the nozzle by turning the same dial to the left.
