Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats

for people who love the littlest dairy goats

What are thoughts on teat dip?  I have been using a wipe before milking and nothing after.  Do people generally use a teat dip and if so what do you use?

I use two clean washcloths on each goat, the first wet to clean and the second dry to dry.  Then I do the pre-strip to clear the teat.  After milking, I clean and dry again then dip the teat in iodine but only if there are no kids nursing.  Someone here suggested a small aspirin bottle for dipping - it works great.
(Yes, I go through a lot of washcloths but this is a good use for old towels, etc.  They can be any terrycloth fabric in washcloth sizes.)
