Best Overall: Tushy Spa
The Tushy Spa attachment rocketed to pop culture fame when the New York Transit Authority rejected ads for it and, subsequently, Michael Che sang its praises on SNL. What makes it worth the extra cost? You can control the angle and the pressure for a targeted spray, it’s self-cleaning, easy to install, and offers warm or hot water—though note that it must be near your sink. The kit does include a 9-foot hot water connection provided. It comes in a range of colors with the option of bamboo or metallic buttons and is the sleekest of the bunch.
Easiest to Install: OMIGO Element Non-Electric Bidet Attachment
This easy-to-install bidet attachment will have you up and running in no time, without any complicated set up. This basic attachment has both a rear and front sprayer with adjustable pressures, so everyone in your family can get the perfect amount of cleaning for them. The sprayers are both self-cleaning and are housed in a protective case when they are not in use to keep them clean between uses.
Though this model doesn't come with a hot water option, the company makes a model called the Element+ that does connect to your sink's hot water line. As a result, that model is a bit more complicated to install.
Best Chrome: GoBidet Bidet Attachment
This attachment keeps it simple, both in design and in use. Once installed, you swing the bidet arm into place and then move the lever to turn on the spray. Unlike some picks on this list, this bidet attachment works for cold water only, unless you buy the compatible hot water kit, as well.
Reviewers say the attachment is easy to install and last a long time—some say theirs have lasted up to a decade of use without any issues.
Best Non-Electric: GenieBidet Ultra Thin Toilet Attachment
One of the top selling points of the Genie Bidet is that it’s streamlined and won’t raise the height of your toilet seat — something that can create an uncomfortable position for many. It has separate nozzles for front and rear cleansing; both work via an adjustable spray knob that goes from soft to strong. It comes with a solid brass T connector, ceramic valve and a new steel braided hose for your toilet, just in case your current one has seen better days. It also comes with a bonus travel bidet so you can spritz on the go. Note that the Genie Bidet doesn’t work with one-piece French curve toilets.
Best Splurge: Brondell Swash 1400 Luxury Bidet Toilet Seat
This toilet seat works as a bidet attachment...and then some. It also offers a warm air dryer to dry your bum off when you’re finished, a heated seat so those winter trips to the bathroom aren’t jarring, deodorizer and a night light so you won’t ever have to fumble around on those middle of the night trips to the bathroom. But back to that bidet function: it offers warm water, nozzle oscillation from two stainless steel nozzles and it self-sterilizes after every use. Plus there’s a remote control that remembers favorite settings of two different users. It does need to be hooked up to a GFCI outlet.
Best for Elderly: Bio Bidet Non-Electric Attachable Bidet System
An estimated 36 billion rolls of toilet paper are used in the United States every year, which is why many opt to use a bidet which can eliminate the need for TP altogether. This one is easy to install, comes with a silver brass pressure control stem, a silver brass ball valve, and a brass inlet, braided metal hose, so you can rest assured it’s top quality. The large dial to control water pressure is easy to manipulate. Reviewers note that the BioBidet is easy to install and even with no temperature controls, most find their own ambient water temperature comfortable—as a plus it’s non-electric and doesn’t require a battery.
Best Handheld: RinseWorks Aquaus 360 Patented Handheld Bidet Sprayer
A handheld bidet attachment like this one gives you the ultimate in control. You control the pressure with the touch of a button and because you hold it, you control exactly where the water sprays. This set includes the sprayers with two spray heads plus a 5” extension, a brass T-connector and ball valve; 54-inch stainless steel hose, and a toll-tank clip and sprayer holder. Satisfied Amazon reviewers say that it’s easy to install and well worth the cost, even though it’s similar in design to other less expensive products because it doesn’t leak. You can even use it to clean the toilet bowl.
Nozzle type Some bidet attachments have one nozzle with a wide spray pattern to clean as much as possible, while others feature two nozzles for adjustable coverage. If you opt for a single nozzle attachment, look for one with adjustable angles to make sure that you can position the water stream into a practical position. Also, take note of whether the nozzle is retractable and has antibacterial properties for sanitary purposes.
Temperature control For a warm water option, look for a bidet attachment that offers temperature control. This will mean that the attachment has to be connected to the hot and cold water supply lines—which could mean running a water line to your sink. While choosing a bidet with only ambient water temperature may offer a more convenient set-up, some people prefer the option to use warmer water.
Handheld attachments If you’re looking for more precise cleaning from a bidet, consider a model with a handheld attachment. It’s typical to see these attachments mounted to a wall near the toilet tank or on the toilet itself—just remember to think about where you'll store your attachment and whether the cord is long enough to reach.
