  • The bad thing about this solution is that it stains the skin (albeit temporarily), and can definitely stain clothing and towels, so you have to watch it
  • I found it best to apply some solution to a q-tip and then apply it to the wound that way, or even a cottonball if it was a large enough area to cover, but you definitely didn't need to pour the bottle out
  • I love the product and it's a staple in my household

      Of all the things I’ve spent my money on, as far as healthcare products go, this probably has to be the more expensive of those. Sure, there’s a lot in the bottle, and a little goes a long way, but $18 for an 8 ounce bottle of Betadine Antiseptic Solution seemed to be a little excessive even for my tastes. Of course, my mother, when she came to visit, swore up and down that no household was complete without a bottle of Betadine somewhere in your medicine cabinet. She used to swear by this stuff when her five kids were growing up, and now that I’d had kids of my own, she was determined I had some in my household as well. And yes, I remember those faraway days of my youth when I’d end up with a

      nail in my foot (yep… a whole nail), and she’d pour this Betadine solution all over it to clean it out as thoroughly as possible before rushing me off to the hospital, or when I was digging in a trash can at the park, at the tender age of ten, looking for left over fireworks, the day after Fourth of July, only to cut my finger gruesomely on broken bottles. Oh, the amount of physical tragedy she had to deal with as far as I was concerned, as a child, and she always handled it with a great deal of efficiency and if it wasn’t good ol’ hydrogen peroxide, then it was a bottle of Betadine Antisceptic Solution.

      The great thing about Betadine verses other wound-cleaning products is that there’s really no sting to speak of. With a ...


      • lot of other products you get an initial sting that can sometimes make you either suck in your breath through your clenched teeth, or flat out jerk your self away from it (like rubbing alcohol, ouch), but this was always the most painless possible product, which might have something to do with that awesome price tag attached to it. The bad thing about this solution is that it stains the skin (albeit temporarily), and can definitely stain clothing and towels, so you have to watch it. And it’s easy to think you need to dump a quarter of the bottle over a wound, like you would with hydrogen peroxide, but it’s important to remember that a very little goes a very long way. I found it best to apply some solution to a q-tip and then apply it
        to the wound that way, or even a cottonball if it was a large enough area to cover, but you definitely didn’t need to pour the bottle out. Use it three times a day on the area needing treatment and you can rest assure that the wound is as clean as it’s ever going to get and probably cleaner than it was before a wound was even there!

        I love the product and it’s a staple in my household. I go through products like McDonald’s go through employees, and very few times do I find things that I have to have in my house at all times, but this is one of those times. Love the product, love the protection it provided me as a child, and the painless protection it provides my own children. Perfect, even if slightly messy.
