Does cold water work just as effective as hot water after wiping my anus?

Just wondering if I wash with soap and cold water for minium 30 seconds, does it remove all the germs and bacteria or do I need to use hot water?

    warm water only feels better. You cannot use water hot enough to kill germs on your skin so you must rely on soap and wiping cleanly.

    You should wash your anus with Natron, the ancient Egyptian substance.). If you've got something like a hemmie then warm would be better but cold is also fine and bracing for the tender roid.Baby wipes really help a lot.

    Soap is the key, not water temperature.

    Water hot enough to kill germs would give you first degree burns. Cold water and soap it quite adequate to clean yourself with. You will never get rid of the germs around your anus and that is really not a problem. Humans have lived for thousands and thousands of years without germ free butts.

    Hot water would be better, but cold is better than not washing at all!

    ^^ you have to use the left hand to clean because it's best to let one hand for the non hygienic matters, while other (right hand) for holding the water hose and for anything hygienic including shaking hands with others ^^ after you clean your butt and private areas but the thing is you clean your butt first and use soap then you clean your hand and then clean your private area and use soap to clean too seperately so it can be very clean and do not cause your self with any kind of diseases related to your private area from the feces.. After you are done you have to clean your hands and use either tissue or towel to dry your butt and private area from water and then your done after you wash your hands again with soap and water..

    Close enough. Maybe scrub for a few seconds longer.

    Yes. Same as washing your hands. The soap is killing the germs not the water temperature. Think about it: How could the water ever be hot enough to kill germs and somehow not kill you?
