In brief: Not advised

There is no need to do so and generally you can do more harm than good by irritating ther vascular tissue in the anal canal.
Generally not a good habit.

In brief: Not Adviseable

That would not be advisable or necessary and could spread germs more than clean them.

There are 1000 trillion bacteria in your colon so you can't clean it. Leave the inside alone.
