What temperature is best for an enema solution? Whether you are using a water-based solution, a mineral oil enema, a coffee cleanse or a soap suds mixture, temperature is important both for safety and for comfort. Enema solutions should be administered at approximately body temperature, ranging between 98 to 104˚
A soap suds enema is used to promote relief from constipation and as a safe way to cleans the colon. It is commonly used in medical settings to improve abdominal pain caused by fecal impaction. Soap suds enemas are considered to be safe for children and adults when administered appropriately.
