Today I am reviewing Luxe Bidet Neo 185. As someone who suffers from chronic diarrhea, I am always looking for ways to feel fresh after each episode. While I had never used a bidet, I jumped at the chance to try one when offered the opportunity.
I admit it, the thought of using a bidet made me giggle. And I wasn’t the only one; my family thought it was hilarious as well. That is until we tried it.
I have been given this product as part of a product review through the Chronic Illness Bloggers network. Although the product was a gift, all opinions in this review remain my own and I was in no way influenced by the company. This blog post contains affiliate links. I may earn a small commission to fund my coffee drinking habit if you use these links to make a purchase. You will not be charged extra, and you’ll keep me supplied in caffeine. It’s a win for everyone.
When my Luxe Bidet Neo 185 arrived, I delegated the task of installing it to my husband, which he did while I ran an errand. The first thing I noticed was that he failed to install it in the bathroom that I had wanted it in. When asked to uninstall it, so I could have it in the bathroom that I wanted it in, he turned from me and with a click of his mouse, he purchased a second one.
He then told me that while the installation was easy, he did have some issues that he believed had to do with our plumbing. So instead of taking it apart and installing it again, he was more than happy to purchase the second one for our other bathroom. But that wasn’t his only reason for purchasing the additional bidet, he loves it!!
Love at first use
My husband is not the only one who loves it. I don’t know how I have lived without one! This device that I thought was a bit strange is the by far one of the best products that I have been asked to try. No matter how violent my diarrhea is, I leave the bathroom feeling fresh and clean all because of my bidet.
In addition to feeling clean, I am also saving money. The money that I am saving by not having to buy flushable cleansing wipes and the huge reduction in the amount of toilet paper that my family uses has almost surpassed the amount spent on the bidet in less than a month. I also don’t need to worry about clogging the toilet up with excessive amounts of toilet paper or wipes. I think it is finally safe for me to put the plunger away!
How did I live without one?
As a woman, I love that this model cleans both the front and back. I wish I would have had one prior to my hysterectomy. This feature would have been fabulous during that time of the month.
I will say that if you have never used a bidet, your first experience may feel strange. My first reaction was to laugh, but then once I discovered the setting that I was most comfortable with, I fell in love with it.
I received odd looks and reactions from the friends and family that I invited to try my bidet. One person who seemed quite hesitant to try it was relieved to find out that use of the bidet was optional. It doesn’t turn on automatically. Of course I can’t think of one reason why someone wouldn’t want to use it. Not only does the user control turning it on, they also control the force of the stream and have the option of cleaning only their backside, or front and back together.
Like I said, my husband and I love this product. We both had a good laugh the other day when he shared that he doesn’t like using any other toilets since he began using the bidet.
Here is a little information about the Luxe Bidet Neo 185:
Do-It-Yourself Installation The bidet can be installed in 15-20 minutes. The only tools required are a screwdriver and wrench. Instructions and all accessories are included.
Adjustable to Fit Most Two-Piece Toilets Adjustable fitting plates allow the bidet to be securely screwed into place between the toilet bowl and seat. The bidet will attach to most two-piece toilets (where the bowl and tank are separate) and some one-piece toilets.
Dual Nozzle Design The bidet features a regular wash nozzle and a feminine nozzle.
Nozzle Guard Gate The hygienic nozzle guard gate ensures the bidet is always ready for clean operation. The guard gate opens for access to the nozzle.
Retractable Nozzles Stay Clean The nozzles only drop below the guard gate when the bidet is used. When the water is turned off, the nozzles automatically retract for hygienic storage.
Convenient Nozzle Cleaning Feature While the bidet is designed to keep the retractable nozzles clean, this model also has a cleaning feature to thoroughly rinse the nozzles.
Activate and Adjust Water Pressure Easily The unobtrusive control panel features a polished silver lever that allows the user to activate and adjust water pressure. A second knob changes nozzle selection and activates the nozzle cleaning feature.
Quality Construction and Components. Neo bidets, just like quality faucets and showerheads, use high-pressure valves with a metal or ceramic core. Braided steel hoses are included to connect the bidet to the water source. These fittings match standard U.S. plumbing sizes.
Additional Details Product comes with an 18 month manufacturer’s warranty. Luxe Bidet is a registered trademark of 2Go Products, LLC.
I highly recommend this product to everyone and anyone, whether you suffer from chronic diarrhea or not.
