How to Clean Your Bidet

Cleaning A Bidet

An attachable bidet is a feature that many people aren’t familiar with. You may be uncertain of how to include this new fixture in your regular bathroom cleaning routine. Fortunately, cleaning the bidet is very similar to cleaning the toilet and other parts of the bathroom. With a little common sense and a frequent cleaning routine, you can keep your bidet in great shape. Keep in mind that each bidet toilet seat will be shaped and installed a little differently. You should consult the manual for your specific product for more detailed directions on the proper cleaning process. These tips will get your started.

Before you worry about cleaning the bidet, you should first clean your toilet as usual. Cleaning the bidet inside a dirty toilet defeats the purpose that you’re aiming for. Use a toilet brush to clean the inside of the toilet. Wipe down the outside of the toilet and the floor in front of it with an antibacterial wipe or clean sponge and bathroom cleaning spray. With another clean wipe, paper towel, or sponge, wipe down the toilet seat and lid. Lift every part of your bidet toilet seat and clean between each layer so every part of the toilet is exposed and wiped down with an antibacterial solution.

Wipe down each nozzle of the bidet and all other exposed parts with an antibacterial wipe. Consult your manual for additional specifications about the type of cleaning solution you should use. Your bidet should have a self-cleaning function that keeps the piping of the bidet clean. The only thing you need to do is keep the exterior of the bidet clean and stain-free. After using a cleaning product on the bidet, you may want to run the bidet once or twice without anyone using it to ensure that the cleaning product is thoroughly rinsed off. This is especially important for feminine cleaning nozzles.

Finally, wipe down the rest of the toilet area, such as the exterior and top of the tank. This area typically accumulates more dust than anything, but it can still become unsightly. If your bidet has a wireless remote, wipe the remote down with an antibacterial wipe or spray on a regular basis. Since users will touch the remote before they have washed their hands after using the restroom, this can become a haven for bacteria, especially for users who do a partial wipe with toilet paper before using the bidet. Plan to clean the toilet and bidet at least once a week.
