People are slowly realizing the advantages of using bidets over traditional toilets.
Be it the cleanliness and hygiene or the comfort that bidets offer.
Bidets are far better than any of the traditional toilets.
But there are some misconceptions about bidets.
And we at BidetTalk.com get a lot of questions every day regarding bidets.
One such question is, do bidets spray poop everywhere?
Now we understand that this is an important thing for someone who hasn’t used the toilet before and wants to upgrade his/her toilet.
So I am going to answer this question in detail, about how the bidet’s cleaning system works, what all features do it has that prevents poop from spraying, etc.
But first thing first. Lets me answer the main question here.
Do bidets spray poop everywhere?
No! bidets don’t spray poop everywhere.
That is because:
- Bidets use finely targeted and pressurized water to clean your butt.
- Most of the standard bidets come with a self-cleaning wand/nozzle that cleans itself before and after every use
- The water nozzle is retractable in every bidet. It comes out only when you need it, i.e. at the time of cleaning.
Okay now, let us dive into the details on working of the bidets and see why don’t spread mess when you poop.
3 Reasons Why Bidets Don’t Spray Poop Everywhere
The very important thing that you need to keep in mind is that bidets are designed for effective and systematic cleaning.
They are tested rigorously during the designing and product development phase before moving forward to mass production for consumer use.
These steps ensure that any bidet you buy today will be safe and clean to use.
Also, the bidets nowadays are very modern and use sensors, top-quality hardware, heating technologies to make your experience much better.
And when it comes to spray poops, no that will not happen 99.99% of the time unless the bidet was damaged during transportation or installation.
Here is why I say so:
Pressurized And Targeted Water Spray
The water coming from the water wand is very finely targeted to clean your butt.
They don’t randomly spray water everywhere around or out of the toilet to create a mess.
Instead, the water stream is typically a very thin, pressurized water stream that aims straight on the required area.
Also, you can adjust the pressure of the water coming from the nozzle as per your comfort and liking.
Bidets like the TOTO C200 uses Premist cleansing to clean up the toilet bowl before each use.
For those of you who do not know what Premist is, it is misting of the toilet bowl is performed before each use helps prevent waste from adhering to your toilet.
Self Cleaning And Adjustable Nozzle
Almost all the bidets nowadays come with self-cleaning wands.
These wands clean themselves thoroughly every time before and after use.
Some bidets like TOTO S550E even have cleaning functions that use Electrolyzed water with sterilizing properties to clean the inside and outside of the nozzle.
That way they make sure that even the microscopic waste is washed away when rinsing.
Now coming to getting a perfect aim.
If you have never used a bidet before, you may wonder that water coming out from the nozzle may miss the area and might accidentally spread poop all over the toilet.
Well, that’s not the case.
Water coming from the nozzle is pressurized, but not so pressurized to cause any discomfort to you or to spread the poop on the toilet walls.
The pressure is such that it hits the area gently and cleans it off smoothly without spread the poop.
Heck, you can even adjust the pressure of the water coming out of the nozzle as mentioned above.
Some bidets even have wands that are adjustable.
You can customize the angle, length, and water pressure for users.
That way, you can get the perfect stream of water to clean your butt effectively without creating a mess.
Okay, but what if you accidentally poop on the bidet? What then?
Well, there are a number of design elements that keep this from happening.
First of all, the wand does not touch the toilet water, so it won’t get poop on it directly from the bowl.
The wands are also always angled so that they don’t sit directly beneath your bum, which means that your poop will never miss the water and accidentally hit the wand.
And nowadays most of the bidets come with a retractable wand that retracts back when not in use.
It only comes out at the time of washing when you are done and clicks the ‘Wash’ button.
Bidets Use Clean Water
The water that comes out of the bidet is the clean water from your water supply.
Bidets do not recycle the water from your toilet bowl.
So rest assured that the water that comes out of your bidet is as clean and fresh as the water that comes out of your sink.
So there it is.

Do bidets get all the poop off?
Yes! bidets get all the poop off your butt, in fact, it does it better than the toilet paper that mostly smears all poo around your butt.
Bidets use a pressurized stream of water to clean off your butt and they do a much better cleaning job compared to toilet papers.
Do you still need to wipe with a bidet?
Well, Some bidets come with an air dryer to dry off your butt once you clean it with water.
But if you own a bidet that does not have an air dryer, then you may need to wipe your butt with toilet paper or a towel to dry off any water from your bum.
