When the cleaning aid 30 has passed along its length bearing against the user 50, the ejection button 7 is user activated to remove the soil wiper 14 without handling the wiper 14.
 Referring to FIGS. 2 and 3, the elevated, freestanding cleaning aid 30, is used by the user 50 while squatting to slide their bottom 51 down the cleaning aid 30 in the direction of cleaning motion 77. The user 50 may step into the box 9 holding the handrails 2 (not shown) to rub against cleaning aid 30 in the cleaning motion direction 77. The user 50 may squat onto the cleaning aid 30 to bear against their body 50. The box 77 is supported by legs 12 and rolling on wheels 8 so that it may be moved to position the cleaning aid 30 closer to a toilet bowl 40. The box 9 supporting the cleaning device 30 may be assembled in many shapes and sized to fit the needs of the user 50. The box 77 may further be made as a square, rectangle or round configuration. The soil wiper 14 may comprise material of rag, tissue, plastic, or paper. The wiper is slid or unrolled from the roll 20 in the direction of wiping motion 77 to cover or tube the cleaning aid 30. The soil wiper 18 may be unrolled from the roll 20 to the tip of the cleaning aid 30 spaced from the box 9 adjacent the ejection area 18. Furthermore, the soil wiper 16 may be glued, taped, magnetically attached, Velcro attached or clipped to the cleaning aid 30. In another aspect of the present invention, the cleaning aid 30 can be configured and assembled as part of a toilet seat cover with devices to assist the user. Again in FIG. 3, the user can stand or squat for the cleaning aid 30 to do the anal or body cleaning.
 The body 1 of the cleaning aid 30 may be formed of easy cleaning materials such as metal, copper, aluminum, screws, nuts, bolts, bracket, silicon, jelly or jell, soft foam, plastic, or rubber for easy cleaning of the outside surface 13 after use.
 In use, the cleaning aid 30 as illustrated in FIGS. 1-3 is brought into contact with the user 50 between spread legs 52 for sliding the cleaning aid or motorized circle 30 in the cleaning direction 77 from the first soil wiping area 16 having a moistened soil wiper 14 thereon to the second soil wiper area 17 to remove excess moisture with the user activated vacuum or dry portion of the soil wiper 14 and continuing to wipe the cleaning aid 30 along the cleaning direction 77 bearing against the user 50 and having deformable gel 21 conforming to the shape of the user 50 to the ejection area 18 where the soil wiper 14 is removed.
 Referring to FIG. 4, according to another embodiment of the invention the cleaning aid 30 for use after bowel discharge may include a tube-let in the machine cleaning device tracks. The stand or squat machine may have a cleaning material tube 20 that cooperates with a regular toilet seat or bowl 40. The motorized machine circles the material 20 like mentioned below. The seat en-tube materials can be rubber, plastic, paper, cloth, rag, silicon, leather and other material suitable for the tubing of the machine cleaning apparatus. While the material is very important for the tubing of machine, the machine could be configured to be used only regular toilet seat or bowl, but the most important of the functions is done by the control motor devise. Because of the motorized device, each person's soil is automatically pulled off the regular toilet seat or bowel 40 and a new material follows immediately to replace the soiled one in a curling move at a clock wise direction. Control by the machine is done with a sensor. The feeding tube material is coiled from one side of the machine and soiled material exits from the other side coiled. The sides can be revised to help people live better.
 Referring to FIG. 5, according to another embodiment of the invention the cleaning device 30 is incorporated into a toilet bowl 40 to allow simply use of the toilet facility. For most new construction, the invention can be customized and in-built with the toilet bowl 40 instead of an independent apparatus attached to the toilet bowel bowl 40 as described above. With the aid of a tiny cleaning aid 30 attached to the toilet bowl 40, the permanent seat is skinned or tubed, or just wrapped with false material which acts as soil wiper material 14 such as rubber, plastic, metal, silicon, aluminum, copper, or a combination of them. The tube can be sealed with hook, button, zipper, Velcro, magnet, and glue. This unique tube will be cleaned with disinfectant fluid or chemical spread, or liquid 32 from a private bottle 33 or toilet bowel tanks. The technology will steam or wash and or powder the toilet seat or tube and dry the soiled seat or tube, or bowl with heat and other material immediately after each use. This method of toilet seat use and cleaning eliminates and/or reduces the wasteful use of paper, plastic, silicon and other material. In time this embodiment will improve and phase out the independent apparatus as more new construction replaces the old method building's internal infrastructure. The new toilet seat technology makes it possible to have total inbuilt bathroom system and just a high tech toilet seat, tube, and bowl as described above.
 The new toilet seat mechanized technology is versatile. This versatility and simplification of the product makes it usable indoor and outdoor, including with a portable toilet. The portable toilet will be handicap friendly. More important is the new technology including the tube-let seat or semi tube-let that rotates around the cleaning and drying machine or the seat which has a cleaning and heating or the other material dry rotating machine.
 Continually referring to FIG. 5, the technological improved toilet system 40, having inbuilt technology operates cleaning activities using a sensor assembly 77a that is firm in a portion of the toilet set or bowel. A motorized machine 77b is used to feed off the toilet seat tube 20, physically moving the material (tube, or semi-tube) around, or rotating the tube material 20 from side to side, left to right or back and front of the bowel bowl. the material 20 can be disinfected and/or scented with liquid 32 from the liquid dispenser 33, which may be communicated via a line 34 for liquid transfer or fed manually. As the tube or seat or bowl material 20 rotates around via the motorized machine 77b, it will come into contact with motorized technology cleaning sections 16, 17, 18. The rotating tube or semi tube material 20 re-enters the system. The technology further squeezes and releases waste into the bowl and flushes it out clean.
 Referring to FIG. 6, according to another embodiment of the present invention the cleaning aid 30 rotates on a firm seat, bowl and other materials 40. The motorized technology communicates with the cleaning aid motorized device 77b and the release sensor 77a. These can be wired and wireless. The mobile device circles in the axis of the toilet bowl, seat and other materials 40. At the end of each use, the sensor and the technology communicate to release the cleaning machine device as it rotates around the toilet bowl, set or other materials. At the station where the mobile machine leaves for cleaning, the dispenser 33 will fill with disinfectant and or scented liquid 32, the mobile cleaning machine will release liquid or wet dissolvent and chemical to dissolve and disinfect soils on the material, and flush or release the liquid inside the bowl. The mobile motorized device will then dry the toilet bowl. These types of technology can be equipped with body cleaning machines for after market use with bowls if requested. (not shown). The green mobile cleaning technology has a lid.
 Referring to FIG. 7, according to another embodiment of the present invention this technology of body cleaning after bowel and urine discharge can be applied to an outdoor application. The outdoor application is in portable toilet systems. Portable toilets are light, and small but self contained toilet(s). The portable toilets are found in parks, camping routes, construction, and other public places. This new technology solves the problem of communicable infection, and reduces paper covering toilet seats to only basic toilet tissues.
 The new technology includes a motorized firm or mobile cleaning machine 30 that cleans the portable toilet with disinfectant 32 dispensed into the cleaning technology (mobile or firm machine cleaner). Because the population is severed, the device 30 will keep working while the supply office is closed, to wet the seat, bowel and or other material 40 and what ever cleaning solution and soil wiper material 14 was used are cleaned and dried.
 The portable toilet may be equipped with a handicap ramp for special need persons, and the rail, hooks, and urinary tubs are big enough to enter a wheel chair. The technology can be powered by dc, ac, battery and or solar energy. The technology (motorized machine) may be wired or wireless. This technology may be manually operated, (not shown), be a factory installed permanently fixture toilet outdoor or portable. It may be assembled on location and disassembled after use. At camp assembling starts with securing the base to the floor, or other likely surfaces. Coupled to the base will be a waste container, and right on top of the waste container will be toilet seat screwed tight. The new technology, including the motorized machine will be installed to control the disinfecting and perfuming of the toilet after use of the toilet seat. Other special equipment for physically challenged may be installed at this time, depending on the need of the occupant(s). A clean water tank is installed. The back wall panel 26 is screwed in. Following installation of the side water resistant panel wall 24, the window equipment(s) 24A is attached, the front wall 28 is attached to the body, and the door 29 is installed in the front (swing, sliding and folding doors) or other sides of the body 25 with a lock and bracket system 23. The stair well 25A, and or ramp 25B are installed on the body 25, and the opening for drainage is installed with filter(s). The roof panel 22 is installed and screwed to the body 25, and the energy source 3 attached or installed to the roof in the form of ac, dc, battery and solar energy. The ventilation system 28A is then put in place. The technology may be equipped with a lid.
 Although the description above contains many specifications, these should not be construed as limiting the scope of the invention but as merely providing illustrations of some of the embodiments of this invention. Thus, the scope of the invention should be determined by the appended claims and their legal equivalents rather than by the examples given. Further, the present invention has been shown and described with reference to the foregoing exemplary embodiments. It is understood, however, that other forms, details, and embodiments may be made without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention.
