How to Remove Sticky Elastoplast

Elastoplast is a company that manufactures plasters (bandages). There are different types of plasters made such as fabric, plastic, waterproof and kids. A plaster is made using a sticky substance so the plaster sticks to the skin and covers the wound. Once the plaster is removed, sticky residue is left behind on the skin. The residue can easily be removed from the skin with just a bit of baby oil.
