It seems there is a worldwide toilet paper crisis! Here’s what you can do if there is no toilet paper left on the shelves.
The coronavirus has thrown everyone into a panic. Not because they might catch COVID-19, but what could happen if they can’t buy the bare essentials. The majority of the western world still use toilet paper and it is something that we accept as always being available. However, “Panic buying” of toilet paper could lead to a shortage of this little-appreciated household item.
So what can you use if there is a shortage of Toilet Paper?
Modern bidets or bumguns, are the perfect solution to having no toilet paper and are, in fact, a cleaner, more hygienic alternative. Bidet sprays use water to wash your peach and come in an array of different devices. Just in case you are wondering, it’s just like a small shower, no part of the bidet actually touches your bum.
- Handheld Bidet Sprays.
- Fixed Seat Bidet Units.
- Portable Travel Bidets.
Handheld Bidet Sprays
Handheld bidet sprays are easy to install and can be bought for under £20. The bidet sprays are plumbed into the existing water feed on your toilet cistern and can be installed by any DIYer. The discreet units consist of a shower hose attached to a small spray which has a finger-operated control at the business end.

How to Use a Handheld Bidet Spray
Stay seated on the toilet, grab the handheld bidet spray and either, reach behind yourself or between your legs from the front, point the spray and squeeze the trigger. The bidet delivers a soft but effective stream of water and cleans between your cheeks, just like a personal shower.
What happens if you are away from home and there is no Toilet Paper? Go portable!
If loo paper is in short supply, there is a good chance unscrupulous beings might remove rolls of toilet paper from public toilets. Could you risk getting caught short?
Portable travel bidets are made up of a pump and a water reservoir. Which, when not in use fit one inside the other and will fit in a handbag or pocket.
Sadly, these bidets do not come with a warm air dryer as with the home models!
Depending on the chosen model, portable bidets are easily charged via either, USB or 2 x AAA batteries. The water reservoir size can vary from between 100 to 200 ml capacity dependant on the chosen model.
How to Use a Travel Bidet.
- Fill the reservoir with the desired temperature of water from a tap.
- Gently push the pump on to the reservoir unit.
- Unfold the nozzle.
- Reach behind or between your legs from the front, point the nozzle and press the button to spray.
- By using either the high or low-pressure button, the spray then delivers a soft but effective stream of water to clean between the cheeks.
- In case you are wondering, at no point should the nozzle touch your body.
Emergency travel bidets
Non-electric travel bidets are also available. They are used in the same way as the electric models but the reservoir is made of silicon and when squeezed, deliver a stream of water. There are also emergency devices which can be attached to a standard bottle of water.
