How do you remove band aid adhesive?

I recently had surgery and have band aid adhesive all over me.

If sore must remain dry, remove adhesive by applying warm air (hair-dryer). If healed, apply a cloth soaked in oil or hot water to soften adhesive for easy removal.

The same thing happened to me and a nurse gave me some good advice. Any mild hair conditioner works great at removing band aid adhesive. Just rub it in and let it sit for a few minutes, then rub gently with a washcloth and rinse. Conditioner will also loosen the edges of a band aid that sticks.

If your surgery's mark are completely healed, the easiest way is to use rubbing alcohol or lighter fluid. Apply directly to the skin and rub gently.

You can use nail polish remover (Cutex), soaking a cotton ball with baby oil, applying rubbing alcohol on a Q-tip followed by body lotion, and if all else fails there is always the tried and true use of soap and water.

Taking some alcohol and applying it to the area where it is built up at. You could also just use soap and water and scrub. The alcohol will loosen it.
