With the sudden toilet paper shortages we experienced early on during the COVID-19 pandemic, many Americans began looking at a solution that much of the globe has already embraced: the bidet. Touted as more sustainable and hygienic than traditional toilet paper, bidets rely on concentrated streams of water to get you clean after using the bathroom, and they're the norm in much of Asia, Europe, and South America. If you're interested in making the switch, here are six bidet seats and bidet attachments that you can buy right now.
