If you don't know the answer, that means you've never lived in Italy and therefore not well-versed in the infamous detergente intimo (soap for your intimate parts, my goodness it sure doesn't translate well!). Chilly gel is a brand of these soaps and there are whole sections in the supermarket dedicated to a vast selection of them with varying characteristics such as pH type, scent, etc. It seems super strange at first, but it's difficult not to become a convert after a few days until you get to a point where it's hard to imagine how you ever lived without the pink "Chilly delicato" or bright green classic Chilly gel. Hence, respect must be paid for this fabulous invention, in tandem with the beautiful bidet.
