What is the dua to read when entering and leaving the toilet?

Observing Âdâb (good manners) on every occasion is essential, and so is the case regarding the use of toilet.
Before entering the toilet, one should remove their socks and roll up their trouser legs.
It is a detested and disrespectful act to enter the toilet with an object having an Âyah (verse) of the Noble Qur’ân or Hadîth al-Sharîf on it since they need to be handled with respect.
Before entering the toilet, one should recite the following dua: “A‘ûdhu billâhi mina’l khubuthi wa’l khabâ’ith” which translates, I seek protection in Allâh from impurity and becoming impure (from Shaytan, Kufr [disbelief] and disobedience).
If they forget to recite it before entering the toilet and remember it in the toilet, they can read it by heart without moving their tongue. In case of relieving oneself in nature, such as in fields or mountains, where there is no toilet, they should read it before uncovering their private parts.
It is not proper to talk in the toilet. If someone sneezes in the toilet, they can say “Alhamdulillâh” in their hearts without uttering it with the tongue. It is not proper to look at one’s private parts or the Najâsah (impurities). One should not spit where they urinate. It is a disliked act to urinate at a place where one performs Wudû or Ghusl.
The private parts need to be uncovered when one is just about to crouch, and they need to be covered before standing up.
While sitting in the toilet, one should lean on their left side.
People should not stay in the toilet more than necessary and leave quickly after doing the necessary cleaning such as Istinjâ and Istibrâ. Staying long in the toilet harms the liver and causes piles.
One should enter the toilet with the left foot and come out with the right. People should take care to leave the toilet (and bathrooms) clean and tidy.
Water and toilet paper should not be used more than necessary.
After leaving the toilet, the following Du‘â should be recited: “Alhamdu lillâhilladhî adhhaba ‘anna’l adhâ wa ‘âfânî min dhâlik”, which translates: All Hamd (thanks) is due to Allâh who has removed discomfort from me and granted me relief.)
