There are two main areas that matter when talking about toilet hygiene. First and foremost, it concerns the cleanliness of the toilet and secondly it is the cleanliness of the toilet user called personal toilet hygiene.
Personal Grooming After Doing a Short or Long Call
There is a lot involved in grooming your private parts. The way a man should clean themselves after using the bathroom is different from how a woman should clean themselves.
Ladies toilet hygiene is different from men. For ladies to get clean well after doing number two, depends on which direction they wipe their butt. It is always recommended to wipe their butt away from their private parts to avoid transferring the fecal matter to their vagina.
Also, a lady has to avoid having long pubic hair because it can affect her personal hygiene after doing a short call. She needs to shave her pubic hair regularly so that after a short call, it becomes easier to clean up urine from her privates. Very long pubic hair can lead to odours due to urine accumulating in the privates. The hair can hold onto bacteria if it is not cleaned well. You really don’t have to shave bald, the goal is to keep the pubic hair short enough to make cleaning it easy.
For men, because they don’t wet their pubic hair when urinating, they can keep the pubic hair as long as they want as long as they keep it cleaned well. For men, their personal hygiene involves cleaning their butt after using the toilet.
How to Clean the Butt after Doing a Number Two
There are many ways of cleaning the butt after doing a number twos. The method you select should be able to clean you sufficiently and at the same time not affect the health of others or affect the environment negatively.
Using Toilet Paper
Is using toilet paper hygienic? Using toilet paper alone does not clean the butt well after a number twos. Not cleaning up well after a number two results in odors.
Using Toilet Wipes
Although toilet wipes clean the butt area well, they are an environmental hazard. Even the innovative wipes that are truly flushable are most times not biodegradable. For the manufacturer to make them flushable, a lot of chemicals are included in their processing which is harmful to the environment.
Using BDÉT Foam Wash
BDÉT Foam Wash is a butt cleaning agent. It is manufactured with ingredients that are gentle on the body and also gentle on the environment. It is quite easy to use BDÉT Foam Wash, it involves, first wiping the butt area with toilet paper after doing a number two. Then apply BDÉT Foam Wash on another piece of toilet paper and now wet wipe the butt area with the moistened tissue paper. The moistened tissue paper will remove any leftover fecal matter and also leave you feeling refreshed and smelling good.
Using a Bidet
Water alone is not sufficient to clean even the rest of the body that is not exposed to fecal matter, for example, the face. Therefore, if you are using a bidet to clean up after using the toilet, you can also use BDÉT Foam Wash to clean up and also to leave you feeling refreshed.
Spray the Toilet After doing a Number Two
Always flush the toilet after doing a short or long call. Before flushing the toilet, always ensure that the toilet lid is down to prevent bacteria from spreading in the air. Then after flushing the toilet, always spray the toilet to keep it smelling fresh for the next user.
What is toilet hygiene?
Toilet hygiene is maintaining the toilet clean from urine and faecal matter and bacteria free. Toilet and bathroom hygiene is essential in homes and public toilet areas.
Isn’t it disgusting to visit a dirty toilet? And not only is it disgusting, but you can also get infections from a dirty toilet.
When bathroom facilities are shared, every member of the household should do their part and never leave the toilet in a worse state than they found it.
It is important to learn how to hygienically clean a toilet. You should clean the toilet with disinfectants to keep bacteria at bay.
Noteworthy, the toilet brush should never be used to clean raw fecal matter. Fecal matter should be flushed down the toilet. It is quite hard to clean the toilet brush if it is exposed to fecal matter. The toilet brush should be used with detergents and disinfectants when cleaning the toilet.
Also, disinfect the doorknobs, toilet paper dispensers, light switches, and toilet walls. Also, disinfect the toilet area including the flash tank and flash tank handle. Leave the disinfectants for about 10 minutes before cleaning up. In addition to that, scrub the floor well with disinfectants and effective cleaning solutions.
