  • ah, im very familiar with those damn surgery tape marks. i think all my kids at one point or another had them stuck to them! its really hard to come off, i think i just rubbed it gently with a washcloth in the bathtub.

  • baby oil, or while soaking in the tub warm water and soap.

  • Try cold cream makeup remover! Or... peanut butter. Really. It removes many things.
