Low-cost bidets hit Amazon top-10 as people seek toilet paper alternatives

2 weeks ago by Joshua Fruhlinger in Retail

Along with hand sanitizer and face masks, toilet paper has quickly become one of the most in-demand items as Americans stock up for what could be a long time spent at home. The reasons for this are multifold, all of which we won't go into here, but some less myopic consumers are thinking ahead and investing in bidets and washlets that, for the most part, render toilet paper redundant.

Whatever the reasons for this, people are seeing the toilet-paper-saving potential of bidets, and products with the term "bidet" in their titles are seeing a rapid rise in sales rank at Amazon ($NASDAQ:AMZN).

Products from TUSHY, GenieBidet, and Luxe Bidet are all having their highest sales ranks at Amazon collectively across the e-commerce giant's Tools & Home Improvement category.

On average, the Luxe Bidet Neo 120, a $50 attachment that adds a simple bidet attachment, has been the best seller. It hit the #3 spot on March 13 out of 100 and looks poised to remain in the top-10 as people continue to stop for bidets, especially ones like that that come in under $100.

The Bio Bidet SlimEdge Simple Bidet Toilet Attachment, which sold for just $35, is now sold out at Amazon. But before inventory dropped, it hit Amazon's Tools & Home Improvement top-10 on March 13.

Other big sellers include the Greenco Bidet Fresh Water Spray Non-Electric Mechanical Bidet attachment and the Tibbers Home Bidet, both of which are also now sold out. The best-selling bidets since January are listed below along with the number of times each hit Amazon's top-100. (Subscribers can see the full list here.)
