Washing bottoms

As I said earlier I am in a wheel chair and as a sideline have a very itchy bottom from continually sitting or lying on it. Has anyone experienced a bidet loo? They squirt warm water on your ‘parts’ then warm air blow dry them. Only thing is:I use a commode on the khasi which means the squirt has further/higher to reach. Amusing though this may seem, I’m asking for serious advice though the odd humourous comment is expected , nay, welcomed. Let’s not beat about the bush so to speak.xx

@merfield , I’m trying to get to the bottom of your problem and I’m trying to picture your equipment (not in a rude way!) to understand the issue.

Is the commode over the loo one of those mobile frame commodes? And is the bidet loo one of those custom toilet/bidet combos?

It might be well worthwhile getting in touch with an Occupational Health, via your MS Nurse or local Council. They should know what solutions are available.

@stumbler,there are, as you know, various toilet/bidet combos which is what I was hoping for experienced advice on. My commode is an Etac Clean shower type with the black foam soft seating(adding height). The OT couldn’t help but the MS nurse might. Thanks stumblerxx

They are everywhere in Japan and have a function that you can increase the pressure of the spray, so it reaches. Don’t press Squirt if you are not on it though, you (or someone you know) will be drying the floor.

@merfield, having had a look at the types of Etac Clean Shower commodes, and taking into account @watsoncraig ‘s comments, it should work.

This is, of course, all dependent on the capabilities of the bidet toilet.

Sounds like the bush will definitely be taking a beating 😂 you need a powerful squirter (innocent 👀 look, with halo 😇)

Euro lotto tonight get your numbers on you’ll be able to employ a full team of firefighters to hose thee down if u drop the jackpot.

@ stumbler @watsoncraig thank you both for yr helpfulness . Sounds like more or less any make will do the biz so long as the jet flow of water is adjustable. V exciting especially for guests wondering what all the pipe work does- theyll be wetly surprised😳xx

@doubleo7hud I’ll defo do Euro lotto but only if the firefighters wear full uniform when they come to douce me down. Like I told my carer when I got stuck in the shower & she said she’d have to get the fire brigade to help.xx
