A bidet looks like a small toilet without a seat, but is an entirely different device. The bidet is used for cleaning yourself after using the toilet. A stream or spray of water rises up from the bottom or runs out of a faucet at the back. A bidet will often make you cleaner than if you were using toilet paper, and is refreshing as well.
Turn on the hot water tap of the bidet, marked "H" or hot. Adjust the hot water by turning on the cold tap. Touch the water with your hand to make sure it is at the right temperature.
Adjust the strength of the water spray that comes from the bottom until it reaches just above the toilet rim.
Straddle the bidet facing the valve and adjust the water flow as necessary. Adjust until the water sprays between your buttocks.
Dry yourself off using a towel. Some bidet models include an air dryer.
