Abstract

A Method for dampening toilet paper or tissue paper and cleaning one's anus and or buttock after the act of defecation. this method provides a cleaner anus and buttock as opposed to just using dry toilet paper. The method uses an automated dispenser also providing a convenient process and a more sanitary process opposed to using wet wipes. Being that standard toilet paper or tissue is used in this method it is also sewer and septic system safe.

  • BACKGROUND OF INVENTION Field of the Invention
  • This Invention relates to a method of moistening toilet paper and use for cleaning of the anus and buttock after defecation.
  • Background
  • Dry toilet paper does not clean as well as wet wipes, but wet wipes are harmful to septic and sewer systems. Wet wipes also are most usually housed in a container that must be opened when used, this may become an unsanitary situation.
  • A dispenser that applies water or cleaning fluid to toilet paper while it is on the roll or while being pulled from said roll can cause problems of tearing.
  • dispensers that apply water or cleaning fluid to toilet paper after being torn from the roll by way of manual hand pumping has the problems of inconvenient to hand operation and possibility of unsanitary condition.
  • what is need is a method for dispensing water or cleaning fluid to toilet paper that is held in one's hand by means of a noncontact dispenser similarly to automatic soap dispensers.
  • SUMMARY OF INVENTION
  • The method or process that is proposed in this invention is to use a device comprising of housing that contains a motion or proximity sensor for activation, batteries for power source, a control circuit, and a reservoir or bottle to hold water or cleaning fluid. And an electric motor pump or a Liner actuated electric pump for dispersing. from 0.8 ml, up to 5 ml water or cleaning fluid. 1.5 ml to 2.5 ml will work best for this application as it provides adequate amount for cleaning purpose but not so much that it deteriorates toilet paper.

  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION
  • The method presented in this invention starts with the user of the method positioned on a toilet in the act of defecating and a device comprising of housing that contains a motion or proximity sensor for activation, batteries for power source, a control circuit, and a reservoir or bottle to hold water or cleaning fluid. And an electric motor pump or a Liner actuated electric pump for dispersing. from 0.8 ml, up to 5 ml water or cleaning fluid. located within reach of the person positioned on the toilet.
  • The user of the method places toilet or tissue paper in their hand. The hand of the user of this method then places hand with toilet paper or tissue under dispenser referred to above in [0011].
  • The action of the method user placing ones' hand under said dispenser triggers proximity or motion sensor of dispenser.
  • When the dispensers motion or proximity sensor is triggered the control circuit of said dispenser device sends power from devices batteries to the devices fluid pump or liner actuator to pump an amount between 0.8 ml to 5 ml but most applicably between 1.5 ml and 2.5 ml of fluid from devices reservoir and out the bottom of device. it is important to have device disperse an adequate amount to be used for cleaning but not so much as to severely deteriorate toilet paper.
  • The fluid that is dispersed from the device collects on the toilet paper or tissue, this dampens or moistens said toilet paper
  • The dampened toilet paper is then used in this method to clean one's anus and or buttock. The dampened toilet paper provides a much-improved cleaning of one's anus opposed to just dry toilet paper or tissue.
  • The toilet paper after being used for cleaning of one's anus becomes soiled with fecal matter the soiled toilet paper can then be discarded in the toilet and flushed with fecal matter from defecating. Being that standard toilet or tissue paper is used in this method it is a much safer for sewer and septic systems
