A bidet wherever you go


Skymall's Travel Bidet--lavender, daisy-garlanded design and continental name notwithstanding--is a portable arse-cleaning kit. The only thing it lacks is a USB connection!

  1. Aside from the fact that it looks like a syringe this device has some potential of becoming more messy for the user. I wouldn’t let that thing anywhere my A$$. I mean, if I need “it” feeling squeaky clean and moist, I would use some wet wipes.

  2. You can probably get similar functionality from a lab wash bottle. You’d just have to do some cutting or searching to make/find one with an upward pointing spout instead of downward.

  3. #3, at $800 that thing could easily cost 3 or 4 times as much money as the toilet it’s mounted to.

    A luxury item to be sure.

  4. I’d buy a bidet — a real, permanent washlet for my toilet — in a hot second if they weren’t so bloody expensive here in the States.

  5. Bidets come standard in my condo bldg. (arlington, va). It’s odd. I have taken a liking to them.

  6. I can see a camping use here, having just spent three days at a VW campout in Jerome with nasty portapotties and a ‘touch of the runs’…

  7. I’ve actually thought of buying one of these. They are a lot cheaper if you look elsewhere than SkyMall, like on Sanicare’s Web site. I have a bidet toilet seat from Sanicare and it is really hard to live without when I travel.

    Some who have never used one may think it silly, frivolous, or just disgusting- but once you have used one for any length of time, you won’t want to go back.

    They are environmentally friendly too, especially when coupled to a modern low-water-use toilet. Of course it varies by individual- but you could save 1-2 or more rolls of toilet paper a week, along with extra water if you need to double-flush. You also save the water and resources necessary at the sewage treatment plant (or in your septic system) to process the extra TP.

  8. I hate to say it, but my travel bidet is a water cup, the same one that gets “sanitized” and put back in your hotel room. It seems to me the problem with most any bidet that involves a tube is cleaning; you probably need a lab brush to properly clean this every time, and you really don’t want to put it in your bag dirty.

  9. I bought one of these a few years ago, and it’s awesome (plus, it’s less than a hundred bucks, so you can have a fresh bottom at stinky butt prices…).


    The only drawback is that it makes a hissing noise, so everyone knows when you use it (but we live in a townhouse where the plumbing’s kind of noisy, so they also know when we brush our teeth and flush).

  10. I bought a washlet here in Japan because my wife (Japanese) liked them. Now I’m wondering what I’m going to do when we move back to the states.

    I don’t want to poop with anything else.

  11. check out the portable oral irragator by Panasonic. I own one and using the thing is the equivalent to a small pressure washer. I would never have thought to try it out on my privates!:/ Great idea with the new fawcet design. maybe I will buy an after market fawcet.

    Once you get used to spraying, you never want to go back to wiping!
