I have access to 10% povidone-iodine solution. How is this different? Can it be used in a similar manner to iodophor? On the package it states that it has 1% titratable iodine. Inactive ingredients are listed as citric acid, disodium phosphate, nontoxynol-9 and sodium hydroxide.
I have this formula for the dilution of iodophor: V = (0.0025*19L)/XX% where XX is the concentration of your solution, 0.0025 is 25ppm as a percentage, 19L is approximately 5 gallons, and V is the volume of your solution you need to add to five gallons of water.
If it is ok to use, do I base the dilution on the titratable percentage of 1% or 10%?
Thanks for your help!
