Toilet paper alternative

Toilet paper alternative

So I’ve seen some articles about ‘family cloths’ as an alternative to toilet paper, which I find pretty unpractical and not very hygienic. So I thought I’d share another option to clean your butt. I’ve been Toilet paper free for about half a year now and I love it! Here is how I do it: I use what’s called a portable bidet. It’s a little squishy bottle with a jet on top. Here is what it looks like:

Basically you fill this with water and clean yourself with the water stream. After that I have a towel to dry myself. Mind you that unlike the family cloth, this towel should never get dirty (If you do it right) and you can use it for a long time without it ever starting to smell. You may need to practice a bit to get completely clean, so use toilet paper for drying until you get the hang of it. The benefits of this are great. It’s a lot more environment friendly, feels a lot nicer, gets you cleaner, and you never run out of toilet paper. If you want to get REALLY efficient, or if you’re in a survival situation with limited water, you could even recycle your own urine (filtered with a charcoal filter to remove odor and color) to use instead of the water, making it a zero footprint solution. You know, if you’re into that kinda stuff πŸ˜‰ Tell me what you think about this and if you have any questions πŸ™‚
