Although these words are often used interchangeably in terms of equipment, there is a difference when related to the process.
When related to the process, typically douching is associated with flushing out the immediate section of the anal passage prior to anal sex. As a deep clean is not necessary for this, normally a small bulb like device seen on the right is used. This is often simply called a “douche” or a “douche bulb”.
These bulbs can also used to soften stool for constipation relief and are sometimes also called “enema bulbs” (you’ll often find these sold in chemists as disposable units with a saline solution in them).
However in saying all this, when related to equipment the word “douche”/”douche bag” can also be used to describe a larger bag.
