PrepTorial™ How to Make a Survival Bidet for Home and Travel PDF Print E-mail

Okay I have to say its nice to know I am NOT the only one who is concerned about toilet paper if and when the poo-hits-the-fan. It was amazing at how may "hits" my article No way am I ever giving up toilet paper!!”  - Famous last words" received. Which only leads me to the conclusion ... people are really taking prepping seriously. Or, they just couldn't fathom anyone not using toilet paper ... and had to find out what I was using.

As most of you who know of me, you know I'm a girlie-girl and will try my darnedest to find out what I can do to stay a girlie-girl when the poo-hits-the-fan. Not gonna catch me with my pants down ... well you might but I'll have a clean fanny! *grin*.

I really did my research on this subject - the toilet paper alternative query. I just couldn't wait until things got worse to find an alternative. And, I couldn't see having huge stock piles of TP that would one day disappear and I would still be up poo's creek.

There had to be an answer. 

Most alternatives I found dealt with ... well the human waste part of it - the poo. Or, okay I'll say it ... the wiping part. It seems, with some methods you were still left with the "wiper" or the vehicle at which you used to wipe albeit, a leaf, a phonebook page, baby wipes, family cloths; the result were all the same. A piece of something with something clinging to it, to dispose of.

I thought I found the answer with travel bottles that you "squirt" yourself clean with, but after reading review after review ... the same issues came up. Not enough water ... and the biggie ...not enough "pressure" to actually clean yourself.

So I continued on my search.

Then I hit on a few survival blogs and they mentioned a garden sprayer. And bingo a light when on.

I went to the store and purchased a 1 gallons sprayer. It was light and I could actually fasten it on my BOB to carry if need be. A small bottle of water is all that would be needed to use.  Perfect!

But on closer examination, I realized that I would actually have to be in the next room in order to anatomically be able to use the sprayer because the wand with the nozzle was too long and only slightly curved.

So I did a little MacGyvering. By looking at some of the "travel bidet" squirt bottles I noted that the wand portion needed to be shorter.  So I measured out what I thought would be a good length and removed 4 1/2 to 5" off the wand.

 Now were talkin'!

Or so I thought.

When I tried it - it didn't work.  Well, when I say it didn't work, it worked if you wanted to clean the bathroom walls but not for the job intended. *sigh*

It seems, in order to work correctly, the wand would have to be more 'curvy' to clean me or any gentleman folks who have to maneuver around any "obstacles".

So I boiled a pot of water and placed the wand in it to soften the plastic. Slowly as the plastic softened, I formed the wand into a "U" shape.

When trying it, not only could I adjust it for a fine mist for those wet only times, but also to a full-on power blaster for those more serious matters - with very option in between.

Why isn't everyone using this? It's brilliant! And inexpensive. Just think of the money saved. Just sayin'.

Now, I know what you're thinking so let me go ahead and address it as well. You are saying "What about the wetness"?

(Yes you are.)

Well, I purchased some white wash cloths and folded them into each other like Kleenex in a tall container. If, and when, I need one, I just lift a cloth out and the next one lifts up to be used next time.

 Once I've used the cloth, I put it in a little trash can that has a plastic insert, that I filled with homemade oxyclean (water, hydrogen peroxide and baking soda.)  When the container is full - of cloths that is - no floaties or ickies mind you, as those have previously been "squirt" away, I pour the cloths into the washing machine or my wonderwash, add some homemade laundry detergent and wash them. They come out white as snow!

So there you have it!  It's called "The Hiney-Hydrant™"

Now get your fanny going! Or is that glowin'?
