How to Thoroughly Clean Your Anus
Maintaining intimate hygiene is important for your health and well-being. And when it comes to cleaning the anus, (both the outside and the inside) many people just aren't doing it right. Sometimes, if you don't wipe properly, fecal matter can accumulate in the anal area causing irritation and discomfort, and being the cause of odors. At oneHOWTO we explain how to thoroughly clean your anus and stay healthy.
It's important that before you wipe your anus, you make sure you have completely finished evacuating, so you don't have to repeat the process of wiping yourself again. Take your time while defecating. It's important to make sure you've finished having a bowel movement before wiping.
The first thing we recommend is that you invest in good toilet paper. To prevent chafing, sores, discomfort and even hemorrhoids, it's wise to choose a soft toilet paper with thick squares, allowing you to use less and most importantly, to ensure delicacy.
There's no need to use the whole roll of toilet paper to clean your rear end, much less if it's of good quality. Simply use three squares of toilet paper to begin. The best way to clean your anus is while sitting, since standing up, you don't have as much access.
Take three squares of toilet paper and fold them, allowing you to reuse the clean side. Firmly hold the square of toilet paper with your middle finger to wipe the anal area, ensuring that all the fecal matter is removed.
Always wipe from front to back with gentle movements. Never wipe in the opposite direction, to prevent feces from coming into contact with your genital area and causing infection. No need to be harsh, make sure you don't apply too much pressure, as it might make the area sore.
It's important to continue wiping until the fecal matter is completely gone. A good way to avoid irritation and discomfort caused by toilet paper, is to initially clean most of the stool with toilet paper, and then finish cleaning yourself with special wet wipes. or you can also use baby wipes. If you have sensitive skin, make sure that you use wet wipes that are for sensitive skin and that are not scented to prevent irritation.
