Any suggestions regarding the removal of adhesive residue left behind when removing transdermal pain patches? I have been using Soft Soap with pumice like auto mechanics use for their hands, but that does not always remove all the adhesive residue without an extreme amount of scrubbing.


Thanks for any advice.

I've used hand sanitizer to remove glue residue. It works really well.

Skin friendly baby oil, mineral oil, and even vegetable or olive oil and, as already mentioned, use a cotton ball ;-)

I use either non acetone nail polish remover or Goo Gone.

Unsafe: Petroleum based products, acetone

Safe: "The Best Cleaner Ever" from ScraPerfect is my recommendation!!

Effective is essential. Safe is also. Easy to clean off the remover is another consideration as is not drying or irritating the skin.

I had some surgery on a toe and had to use a latex free bandage to wrap it. When I removed the band-aid, I got some of the residue on my thumbnail. I decided to try a drop of baby oil and it came right off.
