    Use water from a jug with a long spout. This is common practice in many countries and does leave you very clean and fresh. The left hand is used to 'clean' as the right hand would be considered the hand that you eat or drink with iykwim!

    those who say they use baby wipes are aware that they are not flushable and dont degrade and will end up clogging the drains and leaving you and your neighbours with a very messy smelly problem which can be very very expensive to sort arent you?

    I think most people are aware that you can't flush wipes. I just keep a wee lidded bin in the bathroom to put the used ones in. Wouldn't dream of flushing them, but I suppose some people either wouldn't think of it or be too selfish and just flush. Good idea to point it out. Thanks!

    The bloke I used to work with always said 3 sheets per visit were sufficient - 1 to wipe up, 1 to wipe down and 1 to polish. I never knew if he was joking or not! :D

    Oooooooooooooo he is spoiled, we were allocated 2 sheets max from a da that spent a fortune in the boozers!

    Value baby wipes in our house though in the last 6 months they've gone up from 18p to 49p :eek: so I'm not sure if it is (or ever has been) more economical but I can't stand the idea of wiping my butt with a piece of paper. Seriously, if you got poo on your hand (changing a nappy for example) would you wipe it with a bit of dry tissue and think it was clean??!
    probably not but then at my age i have learnt to wipe my tushie without this happening.. do you flush the baby wipes or do they just clog up landfill??:cool:

    Most households with women should have a little bin anyway in the bathroom for lady pads, that's where our wipes go.

    I'm old enough to know how to wipe properly but I just feel that a dry bit of tissue isn't enough to clean, it's just my personal preference. Some women use wipes every day to clean their make-up off, I don't but I do use them for my bottom. :o

    I have friends who use the water & jug method that rosie383 mentioned and they think it's very dirty to just wipe with tissue. Horses for courses I guess?

  • My Granny had 6 children and said that the amount of toilet paper they went through was obscene, in the end she bought one of those boxes that release tissue paper a sheet at a time like you get some public toilets and there was a vast improvement in the amount used.
