HOW TO CLEAN YOUR ENEMA EQUIPMENT
Important: When cleaning your enema equipment, do not use harsh soaps or solvents, which shorten the life of your equipment. Never put your equipment in the dishwasher.
Drying your equipment properly is the most important step in this process, so be sure to follow this final step carefully, as described below.
STEP 1: Cleaning Your Nozzle
- Fill a clean plastic tub or your sink with hot, soapy water. We recommend using our non-toxic coconut oil soap.
- With hot running water, wash away any stool that might be on your nozzle.
- Detach the nozzle from the tubing. Swish it around in the hot, soapy water you've prepared. Use a nylon cylinder brush to clean out both ends of the nozzle.
(Colon Tube) Cleaning a colon tube is a similar process to cleaning any other nozzle, but you can disconnect the tapered end of the colon tube and use a small brush to clean it out thoroughly.
- Optional but recommended: Let your nozzle soak in a disinfectant solution of hot water mixed with a few drops of Grapefruit Seed Extract, which acts as a non-toxic sterilizing agent.
STEP 2: Cleaning Your Enema Bag or Bucket and Tubing
- Release the clamp to empty any leftover enema solution into the toilet, tub, or sink.
- Re-clamp the tubing and fill the bag with hot, soapy water. (Again, use a non-toxic soap to preserve the life of your equipment.)
- (Bag) You can swish the soapy mixture around to help clean the bag, or use a brush if necessary, but the inside of the bag shouldn't need much cleaning.
(Bucket) The process is the same as for a bag. The important thing to remember when cleaning your enema bucket is not to use any harsh scrubbers on the inside of the bucket. Use a sponge, towel, paper towel, toothbrush, etc.
- Release the clamp again, letting all of the hot soapy water run through the tubing.
- Optional but recommended step to disinfect the equipment (two methods to choose from):
- Option 1: Re-fill the bag or bucket with hot water and add 5 drops of Grapefruit Seed Extract per cup of water. Let this sit for 15-30 minutes.
- Option 2: Fill up a clean plastic tub or clean sink with enough hot water to fully submerge your equipment and add 5 drops of Grapefruit Seed Extract per cup of water. Soak all of your equipment in the solution for 15-30 minutes.
STEP 3: Drying Your Equipment
The most important part of the process is drying your enema equipment. To make sure your enema equipment properly dries, it's best to hang it up for a day or two. Then, when storing, place a wadded paper towel inside of the bag or bucket, which serves as a wicking material and absorbs any remaining moisture so the equipment does not mold.
Note: Coffee enemas stain silicone. That's OK - stains aren't harmful and are easily distinguishable from mold. (Mold is not OK.)
