But does it really work with every bottle, as the manufacturer claims? I decided to test the UYICOO out myself and see! Read on to see exactly how well this device works and if it’s worth the purchase.
What is the UYICOO Nozzle Device?
The UYICOO Portable Bidet Nozzle is a portable handheld water sprayer that helps keep your bum clean and sparkling while on the go. Unlike other portable bidets that come with a water container, this kit only comes with three “toppers” that can be attached to a variety of bottles for use.
Although there is no bottle included with your purchase, the company states that their nozzle will fit 99% of plastic bottles. There is a ridged stopper on the bottom section of the nozzle that allows it to be nestled into the mouth of a container.
The shape then extends the bidet length by an additional 1.5 inches, giving you a little more reach with less effort. The spray opening is tilted at 90 degrees, making it easy for you to use by simply holding a bottle on its side and squeezing gently.
How to Use the UYICOO Nozzle?
Using the UYICOO nozzle is simple. Grab a compatible plastic bottle and push the UYICOO attachment firmly into its lid. Lightly tilt the bottle to test it and make sure you have an airtight seal. Now your portable bidet is ready to go.
Sit down and gently position the bidet by laying it flat and aiming it at the region you wish to rinse. Squeeze the bottle for as long as you need or until the container runs out of water.
Make sure to take the nozzle off of the bottle when you’re finished to prevent any issues with mold or mildew from water trapped in the container.
The Test: Using the UYICOO Nozzle Device With 8 Different Bottles
There’s no better way to know something than to try it. That’s why I’ve gathered 8 bottles from around the house so I can confirm whether this product works with 99% of bottles, as claimed.
And, just as in my review of the CuloClean bidet nozzle, I’ve tested 5 bottles successfully and found 3 bottles that didn’t work well. So read on to see how these different bottles held up, which ones were my favorites, or total fails!
These 5 Bottles Work Great With the UYICOO Nozzle Device!
1. 2-Liter Soda Bottle
The UYICOO nozzle fits firmly into this bottle without needing to push too hard, and it creates a solid seal. The plastic of the bottle was the perfect thickness. Thin enough to squeeze with ease, and thick enough to hold its shape and provide a steady firm pressure of water.
There are plenty of benefits to having a larger bottle as a portable bidet. You can use it for several sessions or even share it with the family. Or if you like to use more water than the average bidet-user, you won’t have to worry about running out.
However, this bottle can be challenging to position when you’re sitting on the royal throne because it’s so big. You may need to slightly hover on the seat and you’ll need to have a strong wide grip for this size bottle.
2. Body Wash Bottle
The UYICOO nozzle fits into this body wash bottle like a glove. The bottle is made out of a durable plastic so it didn’t buckle under the pressure of placing the nozzle inside. The flattened shape of the bottle made it very easy to position when on the toilet and it held a bit more water than a traditional portable bidet would.
It took a good amount of time to prepare the bottle to use, since it took several rinses to get the soap completely out. I didn’t feel comfortable with using residual body wash as a bidet rinse, since we’re dealing with such a sensitive area of the body.
I was pleasantly surprised by the pressure that this bottle provided. It created a long continuous stream and I didn’t have to “pump” the bottle to keep the water coming. This could be helpful for those with sensitive wrists or arthritic hand joints.
3. Water Bottle
The UYICOO cap is a smooth fit in a plastic water bottle. Since these bottles are often made out of thin plastic, it can be hard to place bidet nozzles inside of them. This was a noticeably easier fit due to the soft ribbed design of the nozzle.
Positioning and squeezing the bottle was a breeze and feels almost the same as when using a complete portable bidet. The only difference is this bottle is softer and requires a little less force.
On the downside, this does mean that water comes out more quickly and it doesn’t maintain as long of a stream of water. If you don’t use much water at all, this won’t be much of a problem. But for those who want to extend their water, squeeze lightly and consistently to get a steady stream.
4. Another Portable Bidet Bottle
This isn’t my first time using a portable bidet, so I figured I would try the UYICOO nozzle with another bidet model. For this test I used the Brondell GoSpa Travel Bidet bottle.
To my surprise, it was even easier to use than the original nozzle because instead of having to screw it on, I was able to pop it in.
Since this bottle was specifically designed for this purpose, it worked like a dream. The grip was solid and I didn’t have to squeeze the bottle very hard to produce a good stream of water.
This means that, if you already have a portable bidet at home, the UYICOO nozzle would make an excellent replacement. Handy if your original nozzle gets too dirty or cracks but the water holder is still intact.
5. Cough Syrup Bottle
I tried out the UYICOO nozzle on a cough syrup bottle as a wild curiosity, expecting that it wouldn’t work. But boy was I wrong! It turned out that this container was one of the best of all my tests as a makeshift bidet.
The nozzle was a breeze to fit into the bottle and I was surprised by how much water the bottle held overall. Its compact design made it super easy to position the nozzle anywhere while sitting on the toilet.
I thought the thicker plastic on the medicine bottle would make it hard to squeeze, but it was actually quite easy. Perhaps the triangular shape of the bottle provided a better grip.
Again, as with the body wash bottle, it’s extremely important that you thoroughly rinse out any residue before using it as a bidet.
These 3 bottles didn’t work well with the UYICOO Nozzle Device:
Not all bottles are created equal, and these definitely didn’t measure up:
1. 1-Gallon Milk Jug
I figured that a gallon jug would have the same sized opening as a water bottle. But it turns out that’s just not true!
Milk jugs have a larger opening, and unfortunately, the UYICOO nozzle fell right in when I tried to seal it.
A gallon jug would be nearly impossible to handle while sitting on the john, so this probably wasn’t a very viable idea in the first place.
However, it could have been a clever solution for a more open bathroom situation, such as camping.
2. Soap Dispenser
After carefully cleaning out the soap dispenser near my bathroom sink, I found out that the UYICOO nozzle didn’t fit.
The opening on my bottle was too narrow, and although the nozzle pressed into the opening somewhat, it didn’t create a firm leak-proof seal.
This is a shame for the UYICOO nozzle. It looks like it can fit into smaller openings, but needs to be plugged in at least halfway in order to create a strong seal.
Oh well, onto the next!
3. Wine Bottle
I was a bit ambitious and decided I wanted to try a glass bottle with the UYICOO 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.
Unfortunately, the nozzle didn’t fit, and I wasn’t able to test the physics on a glass bottle. Not only was the nozzle too big for this bottle, but it didn’t fit 3 other glass bottles that I tried.
So it’s safe to say that this product isn’t meant to be used with glass at all!
Which Bottles Worked Best?
Overall, the UYICOO nozzle worked great with most of the bottles I put to the test. It has a sleek design that fits more smoothly into bottles than other bidet nozzles do.
The easiest bottle to use with the nozzle was my used shampoo container. This was a surprise, but I had the easiest time with this bottle from filling it up, to popping on the cap, to using it.
My second favorite bottle was the water bottle. Thin plastic bottles can be a pain to work with since they easily deform and crinkle. With this nozzle, it wasn’t hard at all to insert or pull out the attachment and I didn’t splash water all over myself or my bathroom trying to do so.
An honorable mention must be given to the cough syrup bottle. It’s small, durable, discreet, and very easy to use and get good pressure with.
Final Thoughts: Does the UYICOO Nozzle Work With Every Bottle?
So, is the UYICOO nozzle device a good choice for a portable bidet head? Yes it is! You can’t beat the value of this product, and it has a more functional and sleek design than other bidet nozzles on the market.
It didn’t fit every bottle known to man, so perhaps the company underdelivered on this claim. But you can rest assured that it will be a good fit for any soft drink bottles, water bottles, shampoo, or conditioner containers. Try to stick to bottles that are 1 inch in diameter or slightly under and these nozzles will be easy as pie to use.
