The safest way through the coronavirus and any other outbreak is staying healthy and well-informed. Panic Sells, Calm Saves
The antidote to anxiety is control; since we can’t really control the track of this disease, we turn to what we can control, and that’s why people are shopping. It’s like, ‘well, I feel like I’m doing something; the thing I can control, which is stocking up.
When finding toilet paper becomes impossible, the wheels in my brain start turning and I wonder, do I even need toilet paper?
I’ve pipe-dreamed about buying and starting to use a bidet to reduce my toilet paper consumption. The cost, and honestly, the hassle of having to learn a new routine, has caused me to procrastinate. Now, with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) causing shutdowns and shortages, I’m thinking it would be a good time to try using a bidet, at least, to try more often.
Unfortunately, with the mass hysteria regarding shortages even Amazon cancelled my order of a travel bidet claiming they are out of stock indefinitely.
Give the 3D printer a try.
There are several designs for various types of bidets and/or parts that can be download from Thingiverse and printed at home.
