I saw this type of toilet (see image 2) in North India. The commode is same as most of the others. But I couldn't find the jet (see image 1) which is generally attached with the seat.

So I'm wondering how do you clean yourself once you're done (image 2)?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • Common in Finland too. Colloquially called (swearing warning) >! "pillupuhelin" ("pussy phone" in English). Never heard anyone say that in English except to translate the term.) I hope that's ok to say as it's relatively commonly used. Checked with google, 85000 hits. Also called "käsisuihku" though that also means regular, hand held showering shower, ("hand shower") with 153000 hits. "Ala(pesu)suihku" ("bidet shower". "down(washing)shower" literally), combined 2600 hits. – jsvnm Dec 14 '18 at 1:30

    Jet "generally" attached to the seat? This is the first time I've seen something like image #1... perhaps be a bit careful about cultural assumptions. ;-) – DevSolar Dec 14 '18 at 12:56

It's easy, use the hose! while you're sitting on the toilet seat, direct the hose to your private area (do not insert it there, of course), press and get yourself cleaned.

This answer explains how to use the hose.

    The Bum gun is a fantastic way of cleaning. – zeocrash Dec 13 '18 at 18:22
  • I don’t get how to use these. Do you take your pants and underpants off and squat and use the bum gun? Or do you use it while you’re sitting on the toilet seat? – RoboKaren Dec 14 '18 at 5:25

    do we need to be concerned about the leaking drain pipe, or is that a normal component of this setup? – dlatikay Dec 14 '18 at 13:00

    @dlatikay I have never seen such a thing, I hope it's not connected to what it seems it's connected to in the photo.. – Nean Der Thal Dec 14 '18 at 13:43

See the thing on the left. This is known as Muslim Shower. I guess mostly used by Muslims. It is used to clean your dirty areas.

    Not related to Muslims. The hose is common especially in Southeast Asia and some other countries. – Hermanto Dec 14 '18 at 1:26

    @Hermanto> fwiw, Southeast Asia features the largest muslim countries by number of believers. – spectras Dec 14 '18 at 3:35

  • crumple a bunch of toilet paper.
  • Wet it up
  • Use it on your private part after you done.

Pro tips : its better if you imbue the wet toilet paper with soap for cleaner private part.

    This does not answer the question asked. 'This western toilet'. – Willeke Dec 14 '18 at 9:58
  • If "this" is to be interpreted too literally, the question would be too specific. There is no indication of presence of other furniture in the bathroom or what kind of venue the OP is staying (hotel? b&b?). "Western" bathrooms, at least in the countries I listed, are often-to-always equipped with a bidet. In other countries, if the venue is a large hotel they might choose to buy one to accommodate international travelers, at their discretion. – usr-local-ΕΨΗΕΛΩΝ Dec 14 '18 at 10:43

    The picture with the question clearly shows the hand shower, which indicates the answer. – Willeke Dec 14 '18 at 10:50
  • @usr-local-ΕΨΗΕΛΩΝ there's a huge range of far more reasonable interpretations between "this one specific toilet" and "any toilet that might be considered western", without making the question too specific. OP is clearly hoping for an answer applicable to the toilet shown in the image, and this answer is not. – Chris H Dec 14 '18 at 14:39
