    Wondering how many out there use their own recipe for teat dip or teat wash.
    If so, what is it?
    Or do you use a certain commercial variety?

    I use baby wipes as well...or the store brand of "Wet Ones" antibacterial facial wipes.

    As far as a teat dip, I only recently started using one made with a weak iodine solution and that is only with my doe who had a mild mastitis this past year, everyone else just gets a wipe down and they're off the stand to enjoy their hay.

    I dilute Chlorhexidine in a spray bottle. I spray it on udders and then wipe dry with a paper towel.
