Many years ago, I was chauffeuring my 10 year old son and several of his classmates from school to our home for a sleep over. In the backseat, the boys began to do what boys of that age will do. They began to “One Up” each other. One boy’s dad just bought a new truck. Another just got the latest and greatest iPad; baseball bat; and the list went on and on. When all but my son had shared their “I have the best . . .,” my son declared, “Those are all great, but our toilet washes your butt!” There was an immediate silence, followed with, “No Way!” “How?” “Can we try it?” I barely had turned off the engine and a group of 10-year old boys rushed into our home to check out what is now affectionately referred to as The Butt Washer. They all crowded into the bathroom while my son gave them the instructions and explained how it worked. Then one by one they all took their turns using the Toto Washlet.
Now, we did not install the Toto Washlets in our home on a whim. I did my research and knew that the Toto Washlet was at the top for personal hygiene, ease of use and comfort. The Toto Washlet can provide relief for many conditions like anal fissures, hemorrhoids, rectal prolapse, anal fistula, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s Disease and Irritable Bowel Syndrome. March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month. Colon cancer is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer and the second leading cause of cancer death in men and women combined in the United States. These statistics are quite scary for anyone, and especially for those with a family history. To encourage good regular hygiene for our children a washlet was a must. As for comfort, how many times have you had to get up in the night to use the restroom, but you lie there longer than you should because you know when you stick your tuckus to the seat you are going to be cold? If you have never experienced a heated toilet seat then you are truly missing out.
Since our inaugural “butt washings” we have moved to another house and sadly left behind our beloved Toto stools and washlets. The first pieces of furniture to be bought and placed in our new home were Toto Aquias with the Connect+ S350e Washlet. If you would like to experience the Toto Washlet, contact us today.
