I usually have a somewhat meat and dairy heavy diet, so I'll try avoiding that stuff for a few days ahead of time. I thought I could just spontaneously decide to do it one night and then take a shower after everyone was asleep. Seems like it takes more foresight. Oh well.
Tachyon, it seems you are far, far more ambitious than I when it comes to size but nonetheless, lots of useful info! I'll give your system a shot and see how it goes. For the shorter kind of toy (and the real thing, when the time comes) is my makeshift solution for washing out adequate or would there be a significant benefit for purpose made items?
I would lean onto products that are designed for clean outs such as enema bags in contrast to squeeze bottles. The main issue that I have with that method (and have experienced myself when I was experimenting various methods to clean out) is the actual squeeze action would have to be maintained for it not suck back the material into the bottle which in my view defeats the purpose for actually cleaning out
The advantage of the enema bags is that you let gravity do all the work. With the difference in potential, the force is actually quite strong if you hang the bag high enough. Luckily, the bath and shower tub that I have at home has sliding doors and has a large enough lip on top of the rails for me to hang mine pretty high. Plus, there is zero change of the material coming back the other way into the bag as the water will always want to drop down because of the gravity pulling it.
However, it is not for the faint of heart. I remember the first time I used it, I did NOT expect the mass rush of the water to come in and didn't have quick enough control of my sphincter (at the time, nowadays its old-hat) at the time and well, you can imagine what was there at the bottom of the tub...
Now that I have a proper handle on it, I do go to the toilet to empty out on the first 2 or 3 bags worth and by that point, its very manageable for me to empty out in the tub directly. And the added bonus that I would be very sensitive and in the mood by then which helps a lot.
As for prep for smaller toys, I know well enough now that for me at least, no other method will suit me regardless of toy size. I have been burned too many times thinking that I wouldn't have to do a thorough clean out with some of my smaller toys. When your muscles get stimulated, I found that it will stimulate your entire colon as the body's natural response for items going in is to push out to.
I would also suggest to keep this in mind especially if you want to engage with another partner (although being still single, I can't speak really more on that subject with more detail), you don't want to have "unwanted items" during play. Using condoms in that scenario would also be highly recommended.
