Jussi March 10, 2020 at 8:55 am In Finland any new build since decades ago has a small showerhead next to the toilet. I never mastered it, water splashes everywhere. My dad loves it, doesn’t use toilet paper but has a small dedicated terry towel hanging on the wall. My mother’s advice to any new visitors: “Do not use the small towel under any circumstances!”.

Reusable? Weather, sports results ‘n stuff. It does have some use as a newspaper before you wipe your arse on it. Roué le Jour March 10, 2020 at 9:31 am Jussi, Standard equipment here in Thailand, more hygenic than bog paper and doesn’t clog up the plumbing. Also in this climate a wet bum is a dry bum in about five minutes so no need for towels. Different story in a cold climate though. jgh March 10, 2020 at 10:54 am Re-usable…. as what? Most toilet paper is re-usable as in it’s made from something that’s already been used, most toilet paper isn’t 100% virgin paper. But you’d think toilet paper would be the usage end-point, other than re-using it by adding it to the compost heap. Henry Crun March 10, 2020 at 12:49 pm BiS, The Guardian? You’d wipe more on than off. Nessimmersion March 10, 2020 at 12:53 pm Japanese toilets, 60-70% are the type that wash your arse afterwards. If its good enough for a high hygeine country like that. Two other benefits: It automates some home care for the elderly, see Tim on aspirin, roughly a quarter of home help for the elderly is to help them toilet with a corresponding loss of dignity. It also reduces the consumption of crap sitka spruce for toilet paper. bloke in spain March 10, 2020 at 5:15 pm Do the Japanese not have bidets? Where do they keep the beer? Nessimmersion March 10, 2020 at 7:11 pm Nope, limited space so an all in one job- basically all electronics in toilet seat. Hot/cold water spray, male/female mode and a blow dry. As for the beer – failed to come up with a good pun on Asahi Michael The Swot March 10, 2020 at 8:17 pm Reusable toilet paper. Like the joke about a second hand condom.
