I purchased a bidet toilet seat for my new home. Love it! Can't seem to break away from the TP habit though. I do find I'm not always as clean as I'd like after a poo ideas?
What is "other"?!
And imagine how much wood we will save if he entire world resorted to using the Indian tumbler and water or the faucet
For the other "other" voters, I am interested to know what your "other" is. My "other" is Pristine Cleansing Sprays. Another option, a compromise, for those who desire the cleanse of a bidet but are on a single-ply budget. Its a portable spray you can spray directly onto toilet paper transforming the toilet paper in to a instant - actually biodegradable - wet wipe. The world of bathroom hygiene is apparently more diverse than some may know. The question of bidet or adult wipe may become as antiquated as "coke versus pepsi".

$1200? You can buy one you put right under your current seat and any ninny can attach it to the water source right there at the toilet. They sell them on Amazon for as low as $25...
I have an adult handicapped daughter. Adult wipes are a MUST to keep her clean. Toilet paper has shrunk in size and I prefer my hands to stay clean when tending to her. Gloves aren't always convenient or available when needed. Baby wipes are too small too, though I do buy them in a pinch, so adult wipes it mostly is (and I am not foolish enough to buy them individually wrapped, but by the case. I also have enough common sense to NOT flush them.) As I live in the Desert Southwest, water comes at a premium. I will continue to use adult wipes (or baby wipes, despite their small size, when the others aren't available) no matter what the authors of this article say. They aren't in my middle-aged shoes, for sure.
I think the writer has missed the point in this article. How about "why" are people using wipes? I would never have thought of using them had toilet paper stayed usable. I used to buy a certain soft brand that changed, as everything I seem to buy does, and I could not find anything soft enough anymore. Who wants to have a raw, hurt bottom? Not me. I use toilet paper the finish the process with a baby scent less wipe which I put in the bathroom trash and NOT down the toilet. I hate using these things because of all the reasons in the article but they work! And don't hurt!
Dr. Hulda Clark has a recipe to make your own wipes out of toilet paper or paper towel (100% recycled please): People Wipes
% tsp. powdered lysine
% tsp. vitamin C powder (you may open capsules)
% cup vegetable glycerin
1 cup water
Prepare wipes by cutting paper towels in quarters. Use
white, unfragranced towels that are strong enough to hold up
for this use. Fold each piece in quarters again and stack in a
plastic zippered baggy. Pour the fluid mixture over the stack
and zip. Store a bag full in the freezer to take on car trips. If you
want to keep them a month or more, add 1 tbs. grain alcohol to
For bathroom use, dampen a roll of paper towels under the
cold tap first. Then pour about l A cup of the mixture over the
towel roll around the middle.
