Old-fashioned Soap Suds Enema
This enema was the tried and true standby for grandmothers and
mothers for years, and is still in use in many homes today.
I think that many of us remember being over
mothers or grandmothers lap being filled with a warm soapy solution saying we were full
and couldn't take anymore. Being told what a big boy or girl we were and that there was
not much more to go.
In years past people believed that the only way to have a
good enema was too use soap in the enema solution.
During those times you often found the family enema bag
hanging on the back of the bathroom door, drying ready for the next use.
At times if you were grumpy or misbehaving you were given a hot soap suds enema and depending upon what you had done you also got an old-fashioned spanking. Usually the enema was enough to change your attitude. Many a bad attitude was adjusted with this procedure.
Mixing as you add the warm water.
