About Our Sponsor: 

It all started when our founder and washlet revolutionary, Miki Agrawal experienced different caboose cleaning rituals - from the Indian lota to the tune whistling Japanese bidet. Inspired by the simple joys of this daily ritual (and shocked that American toilet habits haven’t changed since the 1800’s), she created Tushy. We’re a team of toilet crusaders, fighting for clean bums and reduced global wastefulness. We come to work every day, where talking “crap” actually counts, because we’re ultimately turning people into born-again bidet lovers. Learn more about how to bring your own Tushy bidet to your home by visiting:
