Both are great. I use both.

Did you try a search before you posed this question? There are MANY threads that have covered this ground already.

Both are great sanatizers
Maybe your using to much iodophor if its staining your equipment.
Bubbles are ok with starsan.
Both are no rinse sanatizers

I like starsan because if the ph is balanced it will last a while in a spray bottle. I usually mix a gallon batch at a time with distilled water.
I use iodophor for bottling so I don't end up with a kitchen full of starsan bubbles :-)
