What is the proper way for people to wipe themselves after a bowel movement

I have had this debate with several people.  Some people say that wiping with just toilet paper after a bowel movement is sufficient while others say that wiping with soap and water on toilet paper is the correct way for adults to wipe after a bowel movement?  Is there a wrong or right way?

As far as I know either way is appropriate..as long as you feel clean afterwartds. Some might use the pre-moistened wipes.  They certainly do the trick well.  Cost more, but very efficient.
