#1 You should be able to adjust the pressure

I havent had a problem, even at full force. I just put the dipe inside the bowl (not even touchin the water) and spray down/into the bowl.

I still make a mess but my dh makes a bigger mess than I do!!! It is still a lot better than my previous method- old scraper and scrape poo in the toilet then rinse in sink and then disinfect the sink!!!

Keeping the dipe inside the bowl and spraying down not at the dipe really helps. For tough poop, I lay the dipe against the inner bowl. It comes off easier and stays inside the bowl.

Spray at an angle until most of the poop is off and then you can spray directly at it. If you are still getting it all over, you might need to adjust the pressure. And don't feel bad, my first experiences with the diaper sprayer were not pleasant. LOL

I've only used mine a handful of times...never made a mess here.

I only turn the valve about 1/4 of the way...hold dipe low in the bowl as close to the water as I can get without touching...spray angled downward about 1" from the mess and no more...and no mess ups here.

Re: How do you use the toilet sprayer and NOT make a mess?

Ha, ha. I SO make a mess every time!!! I think I just get impatient and irritated (because it is mostly my 5yo having a poopy accident), that I just let 'er have it with the spray at full blast and then just end up with a big old poopy mess all over the toilet.

I got a plastic bucket at Wal mart and DH cut the bottom off so I closepin the dipe to the side of the bucket and spray away.
