When entering the toilet
When entering the toilet recite:
Bismillah "In the name of Allah"
It is in the hadith that between the eyes of Satan and the private parts of man Bismillah is a barrier therefore, this dua should be recited.
اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنَ الْخُبْثِ وَالْخَبَائِثِ
"O Allah. I seek refuge in You from the male female evil and Jinns".
(Mishkat, Hisnul Hasin)
When coming out of the toilet
"(O Allah) I seek forgiveness and pardon from You".
الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي أَذْهَبَ عَنِّي الْأَذَى وَعَافَانِي
"All Praise be to Allah, who removed the difficulty from me and gave me ease (relief)".
At the begining of making wudu
بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ
"I begin in the name of Allah, who is the Most Merciful, Most Gracious".
It is stated in the hadith that one should begin wudhu with Allah's name. No words have been specified and our elders read the above. It is recorded in some ahadith that wudhu is valid although no "Bismillah" is recited.
اللَّهُمَّ اغْفِرْ لِي ذَنْبِي وَوَسِّعْ لِي فِي دَارِي وَبَارِكْ لِي فِي رِزْقِي
"O Allah, forgive my sins and widen my grave and grant barakat in my Rizq (sustenance)".
On completion of wudu
Look towards the sky and recite:
أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ وَأَشْهَدُ أَنَّ مُحَمَّدَاً عَبْدَهُ وَرَسُولَهُ
"I testify that there is no one worthy of worship besides Allah. He is all by Himself and has no partner and I testify that Muhammad is Allah's Rasul (Messenger)".
Eight doors of Jannah will be open for the reciter of this dua. He will be able to enter from whichever door he pleases. (Mishkat)
It is recorded in the same narration that the dua should be recited three times.
Thereafter this dua should be recited
اللَّهُمَّ اجْعَلْنِي مِنَ التَّوَّابِينَ وَاجْعَلْنِي مِنَ الْمُتَطَهِّرِينَ
"O Allah, count me (make me) among those who seek forgiveness and amongst those who stay clean".
Also recite this dua
سُبْحَانَكَ اللَّهُمَّ وَبِحَمْدِكَ أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ أَسْتَغْفِرُكَ وَأَتُوبَ إِلَيْكَ
"O Allah, You are pure, I praise You and testify that only You are worthy of worship and I seek forgiveness from You (I turn to You for forgiveness).
(Hisnul Hasin, from Mustadrak)
