What is a bidet??

A bidet (bee-day) is a device that cleans one's genital and rectal areas with a warm spray/jet of water.  With the Bio Bidet you can also add a mild soap to the stream of water with the push of a button.

The word bidet was first used in the 15th century to refer to pet ponies kept by the French royalty.  During the 19th century the Europeans developed a porcelain cleaning device for contraceptive and purgative (cathartic) use, which was called a bidet because its porcelain shape resembled those same French royal ponies.

Alot of bidets are stand alone units which are expensive, toilet size and hard to install.  You also need the room to install it and it is inconvenient to physically move yourself from your toilet to the bidet.

The Bio Bidet , Brondell Swash and Coco Bidets bidets easily attach to your existing toilet (replacing your existing toilet seat) with all the benefits of a stand alone unit but without the expense and hassle of installing a new bathroom fixture.
