In case you missed it, bidets are gaining fans in the city.

While the derriere-cleaning device lends itself more readily to luxury than practicality, some companies offer more affordable versions that can work in even the tiniest apartment.

One such company is Tushy, which offers two no-electricity-required bidets, both of which cost less than $100 and can work on all standard two-piece toilets.

If you want to ditch toilet paper for a Tushy, here's what you need to install it, and how, courtesy of Tushy:

what you need



1. Remove your toilet seat by unscrewing the screws behind the seat.
2. Turn off the toilet's water valve and then flush the toilet so it's drained completely.
3. Set up your adapter.
Unscrew the fastener from the adapter port and thread the tube through it. Slide the tube onto the port, then screw the fastener onto the outside of the port to secure it.
4. Install the adapter beneath the water tank of your toilet. This is the source of the cool water stream.
5. Connect the other end of the tube to the main body, which you should align with the toilet seat screws.
6. Re-attach the toilet seat and turn on the water valves.
7. Use the pressure knob to try out your bidet.
