3 bidet myths, busted

In bathrooms around the world, the bidet is a common part of people’s daily routine. Yet in the United States, many people are still learning about the benefits of a bidet. As is often the case in learning about something new, some myths occasionally surface about bidets. Today we’re going to look at the three most common bidet myths and tell the real story behind each one.

Myth #1: Bidets are not sanitary

Fact: Coway Bidetmega 200 has a built-in cleaning system

A bidet uses a steady stream of water to provide a thorough clean. The myth is that the excrement could contaminate the bidet’s nozzles. But, not only does the Coway Bidetmega 200 clean one’s backside after using the bathroom, it also cleans itself. The unit’s dual nozzles are made of stainless steel. To sanitize the bidet, simply activate the system’s nozzle-cleaning mode.

Myth #2: Bidets use too much water

Fact: Toilet paper production is water-intensive

Americans are the world’s top consumers of toilet paper, accounting for one-fifth of the paper used globally. One estimate even says 270,000 trees are flushed down the toilet every day. But using a bidet can reduce toilet paper use by 75 percent. What does this have to do with water? Well, it turns out that it takes a lot of water – as much as 37 gallons! – to make just one roll of toilet paper. Additionally, a bidet cleanse uses less water than a typical toilet flush.

Myth #3:: Bidets take up too much room

Fact: The Coway Bidetmega 200 easily fits standard toilets

For centuries, the bidet was a separate porcelain bathroom fixture about the size of a toilet. Now bidet seats, like the Coway Bidetmega 200, do not require additional bathroom space. Instead, they can be easily installed on any standard toilet. Rather than needing to make room for a separate fixture, you simply replace your old toilet seat with the bidet seat.

With these bidet myths dispelled, you can experience a refreshing, hygienic clean every day in your home bathroom. The Coway Bidetmega 200 also offers features to adjust the water pressure and temperature, as well as the seat temperature. Plus it comes with a 90-day money back guarantee. No wonder Americans are adding them to their daily routines.
