Plumbing problems? Plumbing improvements? Even though you have to “stay at home,” you can call Billy the Sunshine Plumber for help – plumbers are classified as essential businesses.
Like a lot of people, you spent today out on your boat. It was a way to get out of the house while obeying the “stay at home” rules that are in place. The problem came on your way home when you stopped by the store to buy some toilet paper. There wasn’t any. You’re glad you have some at home, but you are getting low.
You’re not the only one facing a toilet paper shortage. A story in the New York Times notes, “While the coronavirus pandemic is affecting us all differently depending on where we live, our financial situation and our basic health, one universal is the difficulty finding toilet paper.
“Panic buying of toilet paper has spread around the globe as rapidly as the virus, even though there have been no disruptions in supply and the symptoms of COVID-19 are primarily respiratory, not gastrointestinal. In many stores, you can still readily find food, but nothing to wipe yourself once it’s fully digested.”
The shortage of toilet paper is perhaps one of the most frustrating and perplexing characteristics of the COVID-19 coronavirus.
At first glance, there doesn’t seem to be much you can do about it beyond waiting and hoping you’ll be able to score a package of toilet paper when the stores stock up. But you’d be wrong about that. The Times article points out there is a solution that is actually better for you than using toilet paper: Install a bidet.
“Experts agree that rinsing yourself with water is infinitely more sanitary and environmentally sound. Dr. H. Randolph Bailey, a colorectal surgeon at the University of Texas McGovern Medical School in Houston, recommended bidets or toilet attachments,” according to the Times article. Bailey adds, “You’re just never going to get as clean as rinsing with water. Cleanliness matters, since you can get seriously ill from diseases transmitted via feces. Cholera, hepatitis, and E. coli and urinary tract infections are prime examples. Recent studies have found coronavirus in feces, as well.”
Homeowners interested in trying a bidet have several choices from an attachment that fastens onto existing toilets, to a standalone bidet, to a toilet-bidet combination. Some are simple and some are more ornate and come with more options.
