I just use my hands. I use the right to get the top, and the left to get the bottom and the middle.
If you have a problem reaching you can try a little yoga. Take a scarf in one hand hold it behind you (behind your head). With the other hand grab the bottom, and inch your hands closer together along the scarf. The idea is to get the point where you can actually graps your fingers or hold your hands together in this manner.
And of course... this exercise should help one better apply lotion to his or her back.
