Letter Re: Preparing Now For Good Sanitation After The SHTF


The author should include a bidet bottle in his/her supplies, as well as all preppers. In fact I recommend getting one and start using it right away. I believe you will find, as I have, that once you start using a bidet, you will wonder how you ever did without. It will save great amounts of toilet paper, as now you will only use a few sheets to pat yourself dry. There are places to buy one, but you can also easily make one out of a 1-liter water/soda bottle. Once you get the hang of it, it will only take a cup of water (usually less) and will leave you feeling and actually being so much cleaner, that you won’t have the need for as many showers, thereby saving more water and fuel. Here is a link telling how it works: https://obbproducts.com/HowToUse.htm This also is the site where one type can be purchased. I am not a spokesman for OBB. There are several other places you can find bidet bottles using a search engine. – J.P.

HJL Replies: We’ve covered this subject before, but it is worth repeating. Toilet paper always makes the list in shortages. Don’t get caught without it. A couple of bidet bottles store a whole lot easier than a year’s worth of toilet paper and is much less flammable.
