How do you dry yourself after using a bidet?

After using a bidet, you can dry off the wetness around your butt using a toilet paper. This however is not the best option since the toilet paper would get soggy and leave some lint around your bum.

The other option is using dry washcloths. Again, this is not very acceptable with many people as they do not want to use towels to clean their nether regions. It would also mean that every member of your family would have to have their own washcloth and no one should use another person’s.

The third option is using the air dryer that comes with bidet toilet seats. If you do not have a bidet toilet seat, you could use your regular hair dryer to pass hot air that dries up your nether parts.
