Bidets vs Toilet Paper

Toilet paper: it’s something almost every household uses, but have you ever thought about the environmental impact of this often-used product? In the quest for greener, more sustainable living, an alternative has risen in popularity —the electric bidet. At Shatafas, we’re passionate about introducing this modern, sanitary solution to every home. We offer a wide range of options, including the portable bidet and shatafa max large capacity bidet hose.

Electric Bidets vs. Toilet Paper: A Cleaner Solution

Toilet paper can lead to discomfort, and even infections, for those with sensitive skin. The soft tissue can also easily break up, sometimes leading to plumbers' visits - a cost you don’t need! The electric bidet, however, uses a gentle, cleansing stream of water to attend to your needs.

Our electric bidet options are not only gentler on your body, but they’re a more sustainable choice as well. Every roll of toilet paper requires 37 gallons of water to be made. The electric bidet uses a fraction of this water amount; just one pint per cleaning.

Portable Bidets: Convenience on the Go

For those who spend a lot of time traveling or enjoy adventuring in the great outdoors, you might think a bidet is out of reach. Think again! Shatafas offers a portable bidet that’s small enough to pack in your luggage or backpack yet sufficiently effective to clean-up.

Also referred to as a "shatafa" or "shataf," our portable bidet is a testament to convenience and hygiene. Bring the comfort of a bidet wherever you go and never worry about running out of toilet paper or finding clean public restrooms. The Shatafa Portable Bidet is quick and easy to use, offering a clean, refreshing experience wherever you are.

As we continue to become more aware of the need for sustainability, it's clear that switching from toilet paper to a bidet is a small change that can make a big difference. Regardless of whether you choose an electric, high-capacity, or portable bidet, Shatafas has the perfect solution for your home or on-the-go needs.

While traditionally a Middle Eastern tool, the shatafa is now used globally, and appreciated by those recognizing its superior hygiene and cost benefits. The Shatafa Max large capacity bidet hose, a type of shatafa, is particularly recommended for homes where a full-fledged electric bidet installation is not possible. Its larger capacity ensures longer, uninterrupted use for a thorough and satisfying clean-up.

The Rise of the Electric Bidet

As sustainability becomes a prime focus in our everyday lives and with water conservation increasingly vital, the bidet is gaining momentum as the superior alternative to toilet paper. In particular, our shatafa connect electric bidet is a popular choice among those seeking to reduce wastage and maintain a high degree of personal cleanliness.

Electric bidets come with an array of features that make them more appealing than their traditional counterparts. These features include temperature-controlled water, pressure adjustment, and even automated self-cleaning functions. They're incredibly user-friendly - simple to install and use.

Lota: An Essential Hygiene Tool in Eastern Cultures

The "lota" shares similarities with the 'shatafa' or 'shataf'. Traditionally common in South-Asian households, a lota is a small water vessel used for personal hygiene. Lotas are simple to use and are typically made of brass or copper, due to these metals' antibacterial properties. Though lotas are a link to cultural tradition, modern variations like our shataf products are more accessible and easy to use.
