Skitters is pretty much calm in the tub and tolarates her baths though she doesn't like them, I think it would be easier to use the sprayer for when I am rinsing her off in the tub but she is absuloutley terrified of it and she will not except treats in the bath tub, how do I get her less nervous so I can use the sprayer on her?

If she's that scared, there's a large chance that desensitizing her to it won't help. But I would start with it on the most gentle setting {if settings are available} and only rinse the very end of her with it for awhile, stopping when it becomes too much for her. As she gets more comfortable with that you can work further up her body. If she's older though, you may want to stick with using a cup.
