Bidet Attachments
“I haven’t used one square of toilet paper since I installed my bidet, and even though it uses warm water, the amount of water is well less than a quart. For those who would like, there are bidet attachments for a standard toilet instead of a dedicated bidet.” — Joseph Kaye; Phenix, Va.
