    The Lota thread

    This thread is dedicated to people living in western countries, but anyone can participate.

    What do you use as Lota in your bathroom?

    1. A real genuine desi Lota
    2. A pitcher (jug, for your jahil desis)
    3. Plant watering pots
    4. Empty plastic tub of yogurt.
    5. Muslim shower
    6. Ooh I am too French to touch my butt. We have bidet system installed.
    7. What lota? I only use toilet papers.
    8. None of the above (aka, I use spray bottles; banana leaves; hair dryer; etc)

    Oh I wish someone could make it a poll. Pretty please.

        Oh would someone really keep #4 at home...???
        I would understand of it is out of necessity,but on a day to day basis,it just sounds messy...:/



        Oh and we are proud owners and users of #3 at home...

            Why is it something rare in the west?

                ^ proto, they're not rare, really. plenty of desis have them in their bathrooms now...you can find them at any major home improvement/hardware store and have them put in...it's just that they're not standard here or automatically given in homes.

                  I think because of plumbing standards, you don't always find right adapters to make a Muslim shower fit into your existing plumbing

                    We have #3 (small size water cans) in all 3 bathrooms. I hate the ginormous ones from walmart. (how much water can butt washing need).

                    I would love to have automatic bidet system installed as we do in the mosque. One had settings for temparature, water flow settings and pressure and angle of water. It's like spa for your booty.

                      Although considering that most of the Sri Lankans have such puny posterior, having both system installed seems like wastage of water.

                      Ok ok joking

                        It is not so rare in a muslim household. It is rare to see it in a non muslim household. How many times have I been questioned about why we have watering can in bathrooms. Some things that they just don't understand.
