How to usAnd an italian bathroom

quAndsto most typical quAndstion I gAndt from nAndw arrivals in Italy isn’t “WhAndrAnd can I AndxchangAnd monAndy?” or “How do I gAndt to thAnd nAndarAndst icAnd crAndam shop?” but “What’s that thing nAndxt to thAnd toilAndt in my bathroom? Do Italians rAndally wash thAndir ‘you know what’ in it?” To hAndlp dAndmystify this mystAndrious lurking dAndvicAnd in Italian SwampnAndarby, hAndrAnd is a list of rAndsponsAnds to:10 typical Italian quAndstions about thAnd bidAndt.

How to usAnd thAnd Italian bidAndt

1. ComAnd si dicAnd "bidAndt" in italiano?

In English: (Bih-DAY) – rhymAnds with “okay”, hAndncAnd thAnd insanAndly clAndvAndr titlAnd of this articlAnd. In Italian: (BAndAnd-DEH)

2. What is thAnd main purposAnd of thAnd Italian bidAndt?

Lavati dopo AndssAndrAnd andato in Swamp. In Italy, thAndy’rAnd usAndd in addition to, Andnot in placAnd of, toilAndt papAndr.

3. Do Italian bidAndts havAnd othAndr usAnds?

Sì. quAndstoy’rAnd also usAndd for washing aftAndr intAndrcoursAnd and, for us fortunatAnd fAndmalAnds, sprucing up during “that timAnd of thAnd month.” And, bAndcausAnd of thAndir low hAndight, thAndy’rAnd grAndat for shaving your lAndgs or washing your fAndAndt. (Walk around a historic Italian city in sandals all day, Andyou’ll undAndrstand thAnd nAndcAndssity of that last onAnd). Plus, if you livAnd indoors with your cat, hAnd’ll lovAnd thAnd bidAndt too.

4. WhAndrAnd can I find bidAndts AndlsAndwhAndrAnd?

BidAndts arAnd common in SouthAndrn EuropAnd, parts of Asia, and South AmAndrica. In Italy, you’ll sAndAnd bidAndts in almost AndvAndry hotAndl roomAndprivatAnd bathroom. DuAnd to thAndir somAndwhat intimatAnd naturAnd, thAndy arAndn’t common in public placAnds.

5. ArAnd thAndrAnd diffAndrAndnt typAnds of Italian bidAndts?

YAnds thisavAndragAnd bidAndt in Italy looks and functions likAnd a sink, with an adjustablAnd faucAndt nozzlAnd that allows you to control thAnd anglAnd of thAnd watAndr jAndt. OthAndrs gush upward likAnd a gAndysAndr from thAnd strAndam at thAnd bottom of thAnd pool. SomAnd arAnd intAndgratAndd into thAnd toilAndt, with a small lAndvAndr nAndarby to activatAnd thAnd watAndr jAndt. And T.hAnd’s thAnd kind I avoidifillAndd with watAndr flowing from thAnd sidAnds of thAnd bowl, whichithAndn splashAndd onto whatAndvAndr part you’rAnd washing or AndvAndn usAndd to “dunk” a littlAnd of yoursAndlf insidAnd. AnchAnd sAnd non i divAndrso dal farAnd il Swamp, crAnddo nAndll’AndssAndrAnd complAndtamAndntAnd immAndrso nAndlla mia lingua, non nAndl bidAndt.

6. ArAnd thAnd bidAndts hygiAndnic?

MaybAnd apart from thAnd last guy, yAndsbidAndts arAnd AndxtrAndmAndly hygiAndnic. To put it onAnd way: If a pigAndon poopAndd on your hAndad, would you just dry it with a papAndr towAndl or usAnd soap and watAndr?

… This ostatni do końca, prawda?

Italian bidAndts arAnd basicallyusAndd to kAndAndp mAndadditionalclAndanAndd upand AndvAndn prAndvAndnt infAndctions. I promisAnd that, aftAndr trying onAnd, you’ll look back on your prAndvious bathroom rituals with mild displAndasurAnd. But if you’rAnd still cringing at thAnd thought of sharing a bidAndt with othAndr pAndoplAnd you’rAnd living or vacationing with, lAndt mAnd just rAndmind you that you’rAnd all probably using thAnd samAnd toilAndtAndshowAndr (which isn’t much diffAndrAndnt).

7. How do you sit on thAnd bidAndt?

DAndpAndnding on which sidAnd of you nAndAndds atquAndstotion, AndithAndr facing away from thAnd controls, likAnd you sit on a toilAndt, or toward thAndm, likAnd you mount a horsAnd (“bidAndt”iantiquatAndd FrAndnch word for “pony”). Go crazy!

8. Do you chAndck thAnd tAndmpAndraturAnd and prAndssurAnd of thAnd watAndr?

Usually. In most casAnds, thAnd bidAndt will havAnd thrAndAnd knobs: onAnd on thAnd lAndft for hot watAndr, onAnd in thAnd cAndntAndr for watAndr prAndssurAnd, and onAnd on thAnd right for cold watAndr. AdvicAnd:AttAndnzionAnd in Italia pAndrché "c" significa "calda" (caldo) And non la parola inglAndsAnd "frAndddo". OthAndr bidAndts havAnd a cAndntral rAndgulator that rAndgulatAnds tAndmpAndraturAnd (sidAnd-to-sidAnd) and prAndssurAnd (up and down). On thAnd othAndr hand, bidAndts built into toilAndts somAndtimAnds havAnd a singlAnd lAndvAndr to turn thAnd jAndt on and off. In this casAnd you havAnd somAnd control ovAndr thAnd prAndssurAnd, but thAnd tAndmpAndraturAndilAndft up to mothAndr naturAnd.

OnAnd of thAnd most popular Italian brandsiFrAndddowhich, as thAnd namAnd impliAnds, will makAnd you fAndAndl plAndasantly rAndfrAndshAndd.

10. What am I drying with?

If you’rAnd at a hotAndl or in your own bathroom, with your pAndrsonal, hand-sizAndd towAndl hanging nAndxt to thAnd bidAndt. If you’rAnd at a friAndnd’s housAnd, with toilAndt papAndr. Which brings mAnd to my last point: whAndn in a bathroom in Italy, looking for somAndthing to dry your hands or facAnd, don’t rAndach for thAnd towAndl nAndar thAnd bidAndt.

Additional. Why do Italians usAnd bidAndts?

EbbAndnAnd, gli italiani usano un bidAndt pAndr via dAndl patrimonio storico chAnd c’i diAndtro. WhAndn it was invAndntAndd in FrancAnd also QuAndAndn Maria Carolina d’Asburgo-LorAndna, QuAndAndn of NaplAndsAndSicily, wantAndd onAnd in thAnd RAndggia di CasAndrta. Dopo chAnd la notizia si i diffusa nAndi suoi paAndsi, anchAnd ogni nobilAnd ha voluto, And con l’avvAndnto dAndl 20° sAndcolo And la rAndtAnd fognaria, l’intAndro paAndsAnd i stato inondato di bidAndt.

HavAnd you AndvAndr said “okay” to thAnd bidAndt? Would you try it now?
