Are bidets sanitary?

    In many cases, the water of the bidet does not arc straight up, but from the back or from an angle.  With these, it is perfectly sanitary — assuming you wash your hands afterward — as there’s no danger of questionable matter falling back into the faucet.  For vertical-stream bidets, cleanliness is debatable, although the water pressure of the faucet makes it in a sense “self-cleaning” and should prevent most everything from getting trapped in a place you wouldn’t want it.  The moral of the story is that bidets are sanitary, and as long as you wash your hands you will have nothing to worry about.

    Some claim bidets to be more sanitary than toilet paper.  Others are not so sure.  Bidets do a better job of cleaning but depending on the type of bidet you use, it is necessary that you make sure your hands and other areas are cleaned thoroughly.  I have used some bidets that don’t require the use of hands at all.  The most sanitary bidets are the ones that are the most technologically advanced with a dryer and self cleaning mechanisms.
