Bidet Toilet Seat 101: Warm Air Dryer

An essential feature of any electric bidet seat is that of the warm air dryer. The warm air dryer is designed to dry your bum after a rear wash cycle. When used in conjunction with the rear wash, the warm air dryer will help you achieve a more complete and effective clean after having relieved yourself. The dryer works by blowing a stream of warm, gentle air onto your bum. When activated, the warm air dryer will usually last anywhere from 45 seconds to 1 minute.

This can be enough time to thoroughly dry oneself however, it is not uncommon for a user to use multiple drying cycles to achieve a full dry. Just as with the rear wash and front feminine wash, achieving the best results with the warm air dryer requires some time and practice. 

Being that everyone’s bodies are different, results may vary regarding how well the warm air dryer will dry you. Larger users may require multiple uses of the dryer to achieve a complete dry while smaller users can usually get the job done with just one dry cycle. One’s sitting position can also affect how well the warm air dryer will dry a user.

Sitting further back and/or shifting your torso slightly while seated on the bidet seat can also help with achieving a more complete dry. The more you use the dryer the more familiar you will become with it and how well it dries you off. It should be noted that due to size limitations and the possibility of spreading germs, a bidet seat’s dryer cannot be designed to be too powerful.
