Pick Your Way: Cottonelle Or Bidet?

I am a brand ambassador for Cottonelle. All opinions expressed are my own.

As I mentioned last month, I am a brand ambassador for Cottonelle for then purpose of breaking down barriers and discussing, and educating, people about bum care. In my family, it isn’t a challenge to get my kids to talk about their bums, but I can’t say this is as easy with the rest of society. Not everyone is as fascinated or obsessed with their bum.

Let’s get down to business shall we? So if you could pick your way, would it be Cottonelle or a Bidet? Let’s get a educated first.


A bidet is a low-mounted plumbing fixture or type of sink intended for washing all of your particulars. What I find funny is that bidet is the French word for pony, and it has been named as such because you ride (straddle) it similar to how you would a pony! Sounds glamorous doesn’t it?

I haven’t personally used a bidet, but I don’t think it would be my first choice. Not when there are better options out there! It’s the whole drying off bit, afterwards, that creeps me out. I envision a hand towel sitting in the bathroom, that gets used over and over again. *Cough* I’m sure that’s not the way of it, but I wouldn’t want to drip dry, and I don’t see plumbing that would accommodate the flushing of toilet paper. Anyway, the Cottonelle Routine sounds like a much more pleasant way to get cleaned up after doing your “business”.

For the Cottonelle Routine, it is recommended to use dry toilet paper, Cottonelle wipes, then dry again. Cherry Healey has it down, and even flew into the states to question people in an airport, to see if they knew about this “routine”. Quite brave she is, and it is fun to see people’s responses.

With help from Cherry Healey, I am ready to shout from the rooftops (or the blog), about the Cottonelle Routine. So what will it be: Cottonelle or Bidet?
