I have previously used a spray bottle to wash out the inside edges of my bag. I recently purchased a "Hand Held Bidet " from Amazon.  I have found this item to be very convenient in cleaning my pouch.  

The Hand Held Bidet is attatched to water intake leading to the toilet tank and the nozzel attaches to either the wall or top of the toilet tank. It provides a constant source of pressurized water that is extremly effective in cleaning out my pouch after emptying.  

The water pressure is controlled through the hand held nozzel as well an adjustable and included part that regulates water flow and attatches to the toilet tank.  

It was well worth the $47.00 cost and is easily installed with the parts provided.

Thanks for posting the photo, Dan! Looks great!

P.S. the image will be rotated... the cache needs to refresh.

I don't know what the advantage is. I use my sink to rinse out my bag. My sink is next to the toilet that I am sitting on. Afterwards,  I  clean out the sink.

I don't use a hand sprayer, but I do use a water bottle to rinse my bag out after emptying.

Speed, convenience, hygiene are probably the biggest advantages to using a hand sprayer and/or bottle over the toilet.

Hi Zvitusk,

"To each their own", personally I prefer emptying and flushing the contents into a toilet rather than my bathroom sink.  I doubt my family would be happy if I emptied into the sink regardless of how well I cleaned afterwards.

I think my wife might have a little problem with me dumping in the sink also. Funny, she just asked the other night if I wore my bag in the shower(which I do). I responded, hell yes, do you think I'm crapping in the shower? She said no laughing but was just curious about how I handled things. (truth probably is she thinks I do)  Actually, if we didn't share the same shower, I probably would shower without the bag all the time. I guess you label this as territorial respect.
