I tried it with different containers and my experience was varied. Some bottles worked better than others. But overall, I think the CuloClean Nozzle Device is a great product and I would recommend ordering the CuloClean bottle along with it so you have a portable bidet with you wherever you go! Read on to learn more about how this experiment went.
What is the CuloClean Portable Bidet Nozzle Device?
There’s no doubt that using a bidet is a more hygienic way to clean up after using the toilet. But what if you don’t have one installed in your home? Or maybe you’re traveling and don’t want to pack one along with you?
That’s where the CuloClean Nozzle comes in. It attaches easily to any standard water bottle, so you can get that clean feeling wherever you go.
You have the option to purchase the nozzle device along with CuloClean’s own bottle or just the nozzle itself, which you can then attach to any standard water bottle.
This article will help you to decide which variation will work best for you.
How to Use the CuloClean Nozzle Device?
The CuloClean Nozzle Device is easy to use. Simply fill up your bottle (CuloClean’s bottle or one of your own) with clean water, push the nozzle attachment down on the mouth of the bottle, and you’re good to go!
In order to use it, hold the bottle between your legs while sitting on the toilet. Aim the nozzle towards your bottom and squeeze the bottle to release the water. The water will flow through the nozzle and clean you up just like a regular bidet.
When you’re finished, firmly pull the nozzle and rinse it off with clean water. That’s all there is to it.
Should I Purchase the CuloClean Bottle or Just the Nozzle?
I am a big fan of the CuloClean bottle overall. I’ve found it to have excellent water pressure, it was easy to squeeze, and it’s made out of durable rubber and plastic. But is it worth it to purchase the entire CuloClean bottle, or would I get by well enough with just the nozzle?
I think it’s definitely worth purchasing the entire bottle. The nozzle is great, but having a portable bidet with you wherever you go is an even bigger plus. And at less than $30 for both the CuloClean bottle and nozzle device, it’s a great value.
Keep in mind that even if you purchase the CuloClean bottle and nozzle, you can still use this nozzle on many other bottles. This means you don’t necessarily have to bring the Culo bottle with you and can substitute another water bottle you may have if you’re on the go.
The Test: Using the CuloClean Nozzle With 8 Different Bottles
If you’re curious about purchasing just the nozzle or want to use your CuloClean set with alternative bottles, you probably want to know if it holds up to its claims and actually works!
I’ve tested 5 bottles successfully and found 3 bottles that didn’t work well. Take a look at my results so you can make an informed decision on whether this product is right for you.
These 5 Bottles Work Great With the CuloClean Nozzle Device!
1. 2-Liter Soda Bottle
The 2-liter soda bottle worked well with the CuloClean Nozzle Device. It was surprisingly easy to squeeze and the water lasted a long time. This would be a great option if you’re looking for a larger bottle that can hold more water.
This means less filling up and more time to enjoy your clean feeling. You could use this bottle when camping and have it set out for multiple uses, making things a breeze in an area where access to water is a bit more limited.
One drawback of this bottle is that it isn’t the easiest to position when sitting on the toilet! I was able to position it and aim the bidet correctly, but some might find this to be a bit more challenging due to its larger size.
2. Body Wash Bottle
My body wash bottle also worked well with the CuloClean Nozzle. It was made of thick plastic, so it felt durable and could take a little bit of wear and tear.
There was a good amount of water in the bottle, making it easy to use without running out while doing my business. And the best part? It was really easy to squeeze, so you don’t have to worry about water spraying all over the place when you use it.
This type of bottle (as well as most standard shampoo and conditioner bottles) needs to be thoroughly rinsed before use. It can take quite a few rinses to get all of the soap out, so make sure you do this ahead of time. You don’t want any uninvited chemicals touching your nether regions!
3. Water Bottle
Water bottles are everywhere and with a CuloClean nozzle, you can make a bidet out of one in a pinch. But how did this bottle hold up? The water bottle worked well with the nozzle. It was easier to squeeze than any other bottle, which meant the water came out fast.
It was also very easy to position because it’s about the same size as the CuloClean bottle. This makes it ergonomic and easy for beginners or those with arthritis to use.
However, I saw some drawbacks to using a water bottle. As you can see in the image, it was hard for the bottle to hold its form without drooping and losing its shape. The thinner plastic also meant that the water squeezed out faster, so I ran through my reserves much quicker.
It was also a little tricky to pop the nozzle into the bottle’s mouth because the thin plastic of the bottle would give way a bit. But with a little wiggling, I was able to get it in there and use it without any issues.
4. Another Portable Bidet Bottle
Since I’m a bidet enthusiast, I already had a few portable options on hand. So I tried another portable bidet bottle. I tested the Brondell GoSpa Travel Bidet bottle out with the CuloClean nozzle to see if it would work.
As you can see, this portable bidet base fit like a glove on the CuloClean nozzle. It was a snug fit, so I knew it wouldn’t come off easily. And it didn’t! The nozzle stayed in place even when I turned it upside down and gave it a good shake.
I was happy to see that this would work well with another bidet product since it means that the CuloClean nozzle is versatile enough to work with its competitors!
5. Cough Syrup Bottle
If you’re really in a pinch, you may have an old medicine bottle laying around as I did. As mentioned above with the body wash bottle, it’s extremely important that you rinse out any residue before using it as a bidet.
I was able to get this bottle clean with multiple rinses, but it took some time. Since this medicine bottle was made out of thicker plastic, it was easy to pop the CuloClean Nozzle in.
Yet the plastic was still thin enough to easily spray. I really liked how easy it was to maneuver my hand and aim with this bottle, and was surprised by how long the stream of water lasted.
This is a great option for a more portable or discreet bottle, and was surprisingly one of my favorites!
These 3 bottles didn’t work well with the CuloClean Nozzle Device:
Not all bottles are created equal, and these definitely didn’t measure up:
1. 1-Gallon Milk Jug
I was hoping that a gallon jug would work well because it would be a perfect solution for those who have large families on camping trips. But sadly, this was not the case.
The opening of the gallon jug was too wide to fit the nozzle. It simply fell into the bottle when I tried to screw it in.
And even if it were to fit, I’d imagine that if you’re using a gallon jug over a traditional toilet would be a real challenge, if not impossible. Since there isn’t any extending or scoping piece on the CuloClean bidet, there wouldn’t really be a way to make this work.
I was disappointed that this didn’t work out, but it’s probably for the best. I wouldn’t want anyone to try and use a gallon jug as a portable bidet and end up making a huge mess!
2. Soap Dispenser
The next surprise was how the soap dispenser failed. I had high hopes for this one because it’s small, compact, and easy to squeeze.
But alas, it was not meant to be. The nozzle was simply too large for the opening where the soap pump traditionally goes. It was a close fit, so I had hoped that I could wiggle it in there. But no matter how much I tried, the nozzle just wouldn’t click into place.
I was really bummed that this didn’t work because it would have been such a convenient option. Maybe with a little modification, this could be a potential option for those who are feeling crafty!
3. Wine Bottle
So far, all items on this list have been made of plastic. But what about glass? Surely a wine bottle would work as a portable bidet, right?
Wrong. Again, the opening was too small for the nozzle and couldn’t be forced on. Perhaps because the glass was so rigid, the container had no give and couldn’t accommodate the nozzle.
I knew that I wouldn’t be able to squeeze this bottle, but I figured it may be possible to spray some water by rocking it back and forth after positioning it. I was really hoping that this would work because it would have been such a fun way to upcycle an old wine bottle. But sadly, it was not meant to be.
So Does the CuloClean Nozzle Device Work With Every Bottle?
All in all, I was pretty impressed with the CuloClean Nozzle Device! It worked with more bottles than I expected it to, and for some bottles, I was pleasantly surprised by how well it worked.
So no, it doesn’t work with every bottle. However, if you take a look at the manufacturer’s promise, their nozzles fit bottles that range from 0.9 inches to 1 inch in diameter. Most soda, water, and sparkling water bottles have a diameter within this range.
So while the nozzle doesn’t fit every bottle, it’s still pretty darn close!
Another plus about the nozzle device is that it didn’t leak. I was worried that since it didn’t have a tight seal, water would seep out and make a mess. But I’m happy to report that this wasn’t the case!
At times, it was a little challenging to push the nozzle into the bottle, especially with thinner plastic. But this snug fit rewards you with the peace of mind that it won’t leak out all over the bathroom floor once you use it.
Does It Work Better With Other Bottles or the CuloClean Bottle?
Now that I’ve tested the CuloClean Nozzle with a variety of different bottles, I can say with certainty that it works best with the CuloClean Bottle.
The reason why is because the opening of the bottle is exactly the right size for the nozzle. It’s not too tight or too loose, so it screws on easily without any fuss.
It’s also easy to squeeze and holds the right amount of water, so you don’t have to worry about over or under-filling it.
I would say the shampoo bottle and medicine bottle performed very similarly to the CuloClean bottle, which surprised me. I expected them to be a little more challenging to use because of their slender shape. But both worked well and didn’t leak!
Final Thoughts: Does CuloClean Get the Job Done?
So, does CuloClean’s nozzle get the job done, and would I recommend it? Absolutely! The nozzle is easy to use, fits a variety of bottles, and most importantly, provides a strong stream of water that is powerful enough to comfortably clean you up when nature calls.
If you’re trying to decide whether to buy the bottle or just the nozzle, I would say it’s worth getting both sold in one package. The nozzle alone is pretty versatile, but you’ll get the best results with the CuloClean Bottle.
It’s also nice to have a portable bidet bottle on hand for those times when you don’t have an extra water bottle around.
So there you have it! I hope this article was helpful and that you found my insights useful. Please let me know how these CuloClean products have been working for you in the comments.
