I spay my iodine into an old (but clean) plastic 35mm carmera film tub and then hold the kid, dangle cord into the tub, press tub against the tummy and tip the kid upside down ao all around the cord and cord base is done without me spraying the whole kid and myself in the process - it seems to work well.  :thumbsup:
I used a small yogurt tub - iodine went everywhere and I had funny coloured hands for a day or two, (helped to identify the 2 identical Toggs though  ;D ) thats when I decided a different idea was needed.

a small drinks bottle seems to be the farmers favourite around here.

One of my does was so fanatical about licking her kid clean I gave up after the third attempt in case she overdosed on iodine.
