What kind of iodine did you buy? 1% or a mix? I'm not exactly sure what to look for...
Betadine is easier to find. Povidine seems to be cheaper than things labeled as betadine. I am not sure why. You can get it at walgreens type places. I get it off line in the big bottles from Jeffers, or valley vet when I am ordering other stuff.
Just a suggestion. You can use a really good water spray bottle to "rinse" after you pick it out and scrub (if you do the scrub step). And then spray on the betadine solution. It dries quickly. I personally use Lysol or povidone to scrub it down w first with scrub brush - and rinse well. The red stinky kind of Lysol heavily diluted, btw...it is cheap and effective. Try to dry it first before you put the betadine or 50/50 on. I use flour sack type t-towels, they are really absorbent.
