It can be quite a problem when the person forgets to use toilet tissue. Increased odor and infection risk are key concerns. Reminder notes and verbal prompts can be helpful for some, but do not work for everyone. Bidet toilet seats have been used as a substitute for paper in Japan for more than a decade. Over half of all Japanese households have one installed! This high tech seat attaches to an existing toilet and offers push button controls for washing and drying, allowing the user to wash after each use. You'll need to attach the bidet to your plumbing lines and you'll need an electric outlet nearby, as this bidet seat needs electricity to operate.
