Andrew Skurka has an elegant short "how to poop in the woods" video, (attached below) where he advocates using all manner of natural items to perform the deed, and then finishes with a single piece of tp. Check it out- he even describes the "back country bidet" technique....

That's a well done video.

I've switched over to the bidet method in the last couple of years. I still use tp as well, just a lot less. Can't always find appropriate leaves/sticks/stones/snow so I often use some tp to get started, then water, then a bit of tp to dry off. Probably gross people out but I don't carry soap or hand sanitizer. And I prefer to use my dominant hand. When someone offers to shake my hand in the backcountry I generally warn them off.
