Ok, some toilet talks. Are you a toilet paper or a water dipper type of person? Yeah, I’m serious. I’m asking you which one do you use after you relieve yourself in the comfort room.
I was born and raised in the Philippines and in our culture, a water dipper is an essential tool in the comfort room or toilet. In recent years, affluent people already installed bidets in their CR’s but still, the pail and dipper is the tag team to beat because they’re still widely used nationwide.
In other countries, especially in the west, dippers in the CR are uncommon. A toilet paper, whether 2-ply, 3-ply or 4-ply, is always present to clean yourself right after the “deed”.
Is it just a culture thing? Maybe. One thing is for sure though, I may reach all the continents in the world but the dipper (or a bidet) will always be my partner in the comfort room. Washing makes me feel cleaner and refreshed. Toilet papers? Oh, I use them just to wipe myself dry after washing. Wink!
Now, what’s my question again? Oh yes, I remember. Toilet paper or water dipper?
