Often, there is confusion whether to buy the enema kit with a bag or
then, whether to buy one with the steel can.
As far as the price is concerned, Enema Bags are cheaper than Enema
But that’s about where the advantage of Enema Bags ends….
The Enema Bag has several disadvantages:
Cleaning: The enema bags are difficult to clean from the
inside. The can has no such problem and provides clinical
Refilling: Bags are difficult to refill during an enema
session. For a good enema session you would need to refill your
container. Refilling the Enema Can sitting on a counter top is
so much easier.
Undesirable odors: Most of the bags are made of rubber
latex. These have an undesirable odor, something totally absent
in Stainless Steel Cans.
Latex allergies: Enema bags should be avoided by anyone
prone to latex allergies.
Messy: It is not uncommon to find the soft enema bags
falling off the hook or tipping over from the top. No such
problems with the Can.
Height adjustment difficulty: Enema bags have to be hung
on bathroom pegs, most of which are at a fixed height. Enema
Cans can be placed on table tops or counter tops giving the
necessary flexibility for an enema session.
Even if choosing a bag, the
fountain enema bag (with open top) should be preferred to the
hot-water bottle “convertible” type bag. This is because the hot
water bottles are even more difficult to clean – something totally
undesirable for enema applications.
