Irritant. Don't use: Soap is soap. Soap suds enemas are highly irritating to the lining of the rectum and colon. Aside from causing a bowel movement can cause a whopping inflammation (colitis). Tap water enemas or store bought phosphate enemas are safer (check with md, especially if history of heart, kidney, liver trouble). Oil retention enemas are lubricant.
