Dr. James Miranda Barry

The Drummer's Revenge

By the time Dr. James Miranda Barry reached Canada in 1858, he was already a legend in medical and military circles.

Barry had a reputation for being a genius as a surgeon. He had performed the first successful Caesarean section by a British doctor — only the sixth known successful Caesarean by a European.

Adonomix Bidet Review

<ahref=”http://www.tomoson.com/code=TOPcc152614421997743484cb651482dc5″rel=”nofollow<imgstyle=”display:none”src=”http://www.tomoson.com/images/front/pixel.png&#8221; />

 

What is it? The Adonomix Bidet is a self contained bidet system. It has a dual setting system to clean front and back according to your needs. The nozzle recedes for ease of use. There’s also a self cleaning option. This bidet doesn’t need electricity either. It runs on water pressure from the toilet.

Who Uses It? A lot of people like this product. Disabled folks, senior citizens, and families just trying to save money on toilet paper. It installs quickly, and is easy to handle.

What did I think of it? I had mixed feelings about it. I found it a little hard to install. I didn’t have the right tools, and also don’t have a lot of upper body strength. The product itself is easy to use, but it takes some getting used to.  The fact that it integrates into your current toilet instead of being another item to find space for is really handy. Do I think my friends should get one? Yeah, it’s a helpful things to have. Would I have bought it myself? Not so sure.

Disclaimer: I received this product at a discount in exchange for an honest test drive and review.
