    A loving husband cheesygrin. Failing that, you could try a back scratcher with a none absorbant cloth wrapped round it ( held in place with a rubber band ). Apply the lotion and rub on? x

    You can get it as a spray in some chemists now. Its a bit easier to apply.

    Hi, on ebay under health & beauty you can get refill roller ball bottles.  Could you put some of your oil into the bottle attach the bottle to a back scratcher kind of pole and then roller it on like deodrant? xx

    How about ... cling film a long cushion or a long wrap around back support, drip a little oil into the middle (just a little each time so it doesn't drip everywhere) then put it behind you holding onto each end. Bring it to your back or put it flat on a bed then rub it or yourself along it?

      Best maybe to have a dry run first when you're in the mood to have a laugh.  It might be one of those once you work out the best technique. Especially if you go for it on the bed and you shuffling along it . lol Or it could be a cling wrapped towel just longer than the length of your back.  The oil dripped on it the length of your back. You lay down on it in the right place and there it is on your back with no shuffling required? Just when you stand up again you need to peel the towel away from youwinkx
