If you are using a drainable pouch then you could empty it first then fill it part way with water and slosh it around to clean any excess from around the stoma area. If you are using a closed pouch then maybe try having some TP held under the bottom part of the seal to catch any run off and wipe around the seal once you have the bag off. If you felt like you were talented enough (I know I wouldn't be) you could open the bag like when you burp it and add some water that way, reconnect the seal and slosh up around the stoma to "liquify" the poo first causing it to drain to the bottom of the bag. Again I know if I tried that with a closed pouch I would make a bigger mess, LOL.
