    To use a bidet, first go to the bathroom on the toilet. Once you’ve done your business, straddle the bidet. If you choose to face the water controls, take your pants off, first. For toilets with a built-in bidet, stay on the toilet and hit the “wash” button. To get the desired water temperature, adjust the “hot” and “cold” controls on the bidet. When the water starts coming out of the spout, position yourself over the stream so that it rinses whichever part of yourself you want to clean. While many bidets have a water jet that does most of the work for you, you might need to use your hands or a little toilet paper to get extra clean if your bidet doesn’t have a strong stream. After you’re done, turn off the water. For more tips, including how to clean up after using a bidet, keep reading!
