Kind of paranoid now. Might go with the sitting down wipe.
Which “technique” would you utilise for a “sitdown” wipe?
Slight lift of the cheek from the seat and the “reach back” with a wiping action of front to back?
Or would you plum for the old “down and under”? While this method seems to give the best “clean” you are leaving yourself wide open for instances of “pissy hand”, “stained barse”, or the dreaded “sac smear”. None are very pleasant but all are, very real, possibilities.
Apparently, an “unofficial” study on wiping technique showed it was almost 50:50 on whether one went with sitting or standing to wipe. The sit down style was then split into whether the user did a lean and “reach back” or the “down and under”.
My take on it would be that someone raised in a family of, predominantly, women would be more likely to go “down and under” but that’s just speculation.
Hope you got on ok.
