How to use toilet tissue tongs for your butt

Tissue tongs can be used alongside with toilet paper, flushable adult wet wipes or DIY wipes to wipe your butt. They are nothing but assistive wiping devices that are used by handicapped, elderly or obese people who might be having trouble reaching their perineal area.

Resembling scissors, the tongs usually have a handle as well as the head and a turning point. You usually insert your fingers in the grip handle and outstretch the tongs which will do so at the fulcrum. Then roll out enough wiping medium into the head which firmly clasps the medium. Then you can go ahead to apply pressure on your bum area and wipe. Once done, you direct the filthy tissue paper to the toilet hole, release using the grip handles and voila, you just used the toilet paper tongs.

So how do you make use of the tongs?

The tissue tongs work just like charcoal tongs.

  1. You roll out enough tissue paper or wet wipes on the head of the tongs
  2. Go ahead to direct it towards your butt.
  3. Go ahead to wipe your butt until you feel refreshed and sanitized.
  4. Throw away the used tissue paper into the toilet.
