Bandage goo

Does any one know of an easy way/product to remove the sticky remains from bandage tape on the body. I have been using oil and a rag, but that is slow and tedious. It seems there should be something made specifically for this.

Try alcohol and rub or just soak it in a bath and rub. I have never had any problem getting it off.

Baby oil on a piece of soft cloth.

You can buy adhesive remover wipes. Uni-solve is one brand. Seems to me that the brand we used to carry was made with naptha. Many tapes and securement devices now are designed to remove with plain alcohol. Anyway, they are not expensive -- about $10-- on Amazon.
