Ok you're right this is very personal, but let me give you my take. I have a feeling I do it the hard way though after reading some of yours. I squeeze the ends together to make the opening bigger and empty it. But before I even start I take some toilet paper and fold it up. Three pieces to be exact and then set them on my legs. Once the bag is empty I take one of the folded pieces and fold it again longways and then in half so it's smaller, I open the pouch by squeezing the side again and stick the tp in there and then close the pouch over it, when I pull it out it's almost clean. I throw that one in the toilet and do it again two more times and then it's completely clean and I can fold it up all clean. My hands never get messy, I wash them any way of course!
I don't know if I helped but wanted to try. I too am still used to saying "bag" I'll get better at it.
I love the velcro much better.
