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.
The tissue tongs work just like charcoal tongs.
The tongs are effective. If you are working with obese, handicapped or elderly patients, then you can be assured that they will always have clean butts since all you need to do is use enough wiping material to wipe your butt.
They are durable and will last for long. So you get a true value for your money
Good grip on the fingers so that they do not fall easily.
They can be scary since they look intrusive. Most of the patients will not entertain the thought of having the piercing objects going to their butts as they might prick them.
They can only be used for wiping your butt. No other washroom activities such as bathing, applying ointment or shaving your legs.
