Abstract

Defecation (or Pooping) is the final step of digestion where we eliminate waste material via the anus. The frequency of pooping varies from few times daily to few times weekly. How we clean ourselves after a poop is however a topic that is rarely discussed. In most countries people use the toilet paper to clean themselves while lesser population prefers using water. While water is considered more hygienic, tissue paper is most widely used around the globe. However, toilet paper does have some drawbacks which we shall consider here.
