    Default How do y'all get sticky tape residue off of skin?

    From bandages, and various medical stuff? Eliana still has some on her skin from surgery. Gentle scrubbing with water and washcloth has not helped. She is in a lot of pain still so I have not been aggressive in getting it off.

    Generally I use a bit of oil to rub over the area which will help release the "stick", if it was mega sticky soaking the area in warm water & using the oil a few times over works. I know when in PT for my knee the fellow used some kinda mega tape that left such a residue.. I used a scrubbie to try & get that stuff off, you know, before being more sensible & pulling out some oil.

    Rubbing/gentle scrubbing a little vitamin E oil, avocado oil, or olive oil on the skin may help.

    Hugs. Hope her pain goes away very soon.

    Oils would probably work

    WD40 definitely works. Stinky but it works

    Leslie, do you have any Uni-Solv from Joshua's diabetes supplies? When Sarah was younger, I always used Uni-Solv wipes to loosen/remove pump sites and CGM sensors. Now she just rips them off, but I find them super useful for removing anything adhesive.

    Laura - Yes! Great idea. Her skin is super sensitive and I've gotten some of it off, but still a good bit there. She is still not feeling great so I have just left it so as not to hurt her any more than she already is, kwim? Thanks!

    Use your YL oils. Any of the citrus oils will likely take it off instantly without effort. I'm sorry she's having trouble!
