Brondell Swash™ Toilet Review - Don't Waste Paper with this Advanced Bidet

The 1000

Always looks for ways to be healthy Splash Magazines was intrigued with all the recent articles on using a bidet. Popular in Europe and Asia especially Japan the bidet has finally made it to America. Splash wants to foster a healthy, comfort-enhancing, and socially responsible lifestyle, so we looked into the use of toilet paper vs. using a bidet today.

Toilet paper is expensive, has a high environmental impact, and on average, Americans use 100 rolls of toilet paper per year (over 20,000 + sheets). Plus it is hard on septic and sewer systems. The idea of a commercial product designed solely to wipe yourself clean started about 150 years ago in the U.S.A. Commercial toilet paper made from cutting down forests, turned something disposable into something indispensable.

Toilet paper manufacturers need to charge more per roll to make a profit, because production costs are rising quickly. During the past few years, paper pulp has become more expensive, energy costs are rising, and even the water for the process is becoming scarce. Rolls are getting smaller with less sheets. Ask yourself when toilet paper becomes a luxury item, can Americans live without it?

Interestingly, mankind lived without toilet, for a very long time so there was no need for toilet paper. For example today, in Japan, toilets that come equipped with a bidet and an air-blower are increasingly popular. All over the world, water remains one of the most common methods of self-cleaning. Many places in India, the Middle East, and Asia, for instance, still depend on a bucket and a spigot.

We reviewed the Brondell Swash™ an advanced bidet toilet seat. It is a highly functional toilet seat that provides comfort and personal hygiene. It has posterior and feminine warm water washes, an adjustable heated seat, warm air dryer, automatic deodorizer and a wireless remote control. With all Brondell seats, it is gentle-closing and is made with the same high quality standards.


And we asked ourselves, why go back to dry irritating toilet paper or expensive baby wipes when you can use a bidet? The advanced Swash™ bidet seat was the recipient of the 2007 American Building Products Award and Electronic House Magazine's 2011 Product of the Year Award.
