This Warm-Water Bidet Attachment Is Life-Changing Magic

The never-ending list of things I did not plan on happening in 2020 now includes installing a bidet attachment for my toilet. As someone renting an apartment, with no plans for a major renovation, getting a bidet hadn’t even crossed my mind. But the Tushy Spa is a simple attachment that allows you to turn any toilet into a temperature-controlled bidet with ease.

The Tushy Spa is on sale for $109. Bidets are great for helping you get clean down there throughout the day, whether you’ve had a messy poop or are on your period. Urologist Lamia Gabal, MD, says bidets are especially great for vulva owners.

“I very often recommend bidets for my patients with recurrent UTIs,” says Dr. Gabal. “I feel it helps to evacuate the stool completely, decrease the bacteria in the area and, in turn, decrease the risk for infection. We always teach girls to wipe from front to back to keep the bacteria away from the urethra; a bidet is even better to clean this area.”

The first time I turned on my Tushy Spa I screamed. It wasn’t scary, just shocking. Even on the lowest pressure setting the stream was quite powerful. I’m unsure if the stream has since calmed down or if I’m used to it, but either way, it got much more tolerable after a few uses. It’s been especially great during my period to help clean up awful period poops and, you know, the blood. The Tushy Spa also has an adjustable head that allows you to target your bits. However, I found that to target my vagina, I had to sit further back than I’m used to.

Foods that make you poop, according to a dietitian:


Most bidet attachments work by connecting to the water supply that feeds into your toilet. Meaning the temperature of your cold tap water is the temperature of the water being shot at your bum. The Tushy Spa changes that by also attaching to your sink’s hot water supply. It’s so nice to be able to control the temperature. (Pro tip: To help warm the water, just run your sink’s hot water when you sit down.) It should be nice and warm by the time you’re ready to use it.

The installation is pretty simple even if you don’t have any plumbing experience. All you need is a wrench and a dream. The cold water tube attaches to your toilet and the warm water tube attaches under your skin. Because it attaches to your sink, your toilet and sink must be within nine feet of each other. If you have a closed vanity under your sink you’ll have to either be okay with drilling a hole in the side or forgoing the Spa. The Tushy Classic ($72) is a single-temperature option that just attaches to your toilet.

The only issue I ran into had to do with my toilet type. The Tushy fits on all standard two-piece toilets and some one-piece toilets. I have a flushometer toilet where the water enters the toilet through a pipe in the wall. If you also have this kind of toilet you’ll have to attach the bidet to your sink’s cold water line instead of directly to your toilet. Luckily, you can grab the Tushy Flushometer Installation Kit ($10) to make the Tushy Spa work for you.

To complete your throne, consider adding on the Tushy Ottoman ($69). It is the sleekest poop stool I ever did see and comes in two heights—relaxed and original—to allow you to choose the depth of your crouch.

Every time I use my Tushy Spa attachment I love it more and more. I not only feel cleaner, but also a bit pampered. If you’re ready to try out a bidet, now is the perfect time.
