Tushy offers affordable, decor-friendly bidet attachments that turn virtually any toilet into a bidet (a device that sprays your behind clean, FYI) for under $70.
Founded by entrepreneur Miki Agrawal, Tushy is about more than cleanliness. It’s also an eco-friendly and cost-effective alternative to toilet paper, seeing as the average American family spends $500 — or two trees’ worth of TP — on flushable paper per year.
Using a bidet also helps prevent UTIs, yeast infections, and hemorrhoids. As a devoted fan, I can honestly say it makes you feel so much fresher and cleaner than wiping.
Currently, Tushy is offering Bussiness Insider readers 10% off their purchase with the discount code “BUSINESSPICKS”. The bidet attatchment is also available on Amazon, but without a discount.
“If a bird pooped on you, would you wipe it off with paper, or wash it away?”
The words of Miki Agrawal, the founder of Tushy, a company that sells $69 bidet attachments, haunted me for days.
After listening to Agrawal wax poetic about the benefits of a good bidet spray via one of my favorite wellness podcasts, I just couldn’t shake the feeling that I needed — no, deserved — a bidet of my very own. She made it sound so necessary. So eco-friendly. So healthy.
Still, when I finally clicked “Add to Cart” on the White Bamboo Tushy Classic (arguably the most fashion-forward toilet accessory in existence), I braced myself for the embarrassment I’d feel when the package arrived and my husband spotted it. After all, installing a bidet in my bathroom was pretty much equivalent to admitting that I actually, you know, use the bathroom — something I’ve been able to all but hide from him throughout dating, engagement, and marriage.
Let me backup a bit: Are you familiar with bidets?
As Tushy describes it, a bidet is “a device that sprays your bottom clean.” Popular in European and Asian countries, bidets look a little different depending on where you go — in Japan, bidets are usually built right into the toilet. In France, bidets are typically separate basins situated next to the toilet. With Tushy, any toilet can become a bidet.
“I am half Japanese and half Indian, and through both cultures I grew up with bidets, so I have known about them for a really long time,” Agrawal tells Business Insider. “I always thought Japanese bidets were way too expensive and I also did not want to spend money adding a French bidet next to my toilet, not to mention in my rental apartment that had no space for it.” She ended up getting a Chinese bidet attachment — a Valentine’s Day present from her then-boyfriend-now-husband, natch — but it was “ugly and looked like a medical device.”
“It was then that I had the ding ding ding moment to create a modern, affordable, designer bidet attachment for the …read more
