A cotton ball will likely hold together better than tissue, but you can use either dampened with warm (not hot) water. Try softening the stool first and then cleaning it away a few minutes later. Don't get the kit any wetter than necessary and be very gentle.

I agree with Maggie J! My bunny gets that all the time. If it gets super bad I clean it, but if only a small amount, I leave him to clean it himself. Rabbit's naturally groom themselves and do a very good job of it! But remember to never bath your rabbit. That could get him to go into shock, which could make him die.
