Re: [IP] Removing Glue



maureen,
thanks for the advice about the wd-40, i am going to try that.  we may need
to be aware of the toxins in that product.  there really should be something
else we can use.   it does not happen all of the time for me but i was going
to try more "natural" things like vinegar, kemi oil or whatever.  once i
wipe the site with alcohol then wash w/ soapand water and then rub w/
neosprin,  the stuff usually goes away.   i am still experimenting...pass on
what you have learned.
while we are asking questions...has anyone managed to prevent air bubbles
from developing in the minimed 507c?  i have tried remedies (including
sitting full resevoir out overnight and pulling air OUT before filling), but
after 48 hours or so, bubbles still form.  i have benn pumping for about 2
months and i am open to suggestions.  
sasha

This is going to sound completely strange, and I would have never tried it
in a million years if it wasn't suggested to me.  My pump trainer (who is
also a pharamist and pumper himself) says the best way to get the sticky
stuff off is spray a little WD-40 on a Q-tip and then just rub it on the
stick part.  I've tried it, and it works like a charm.  The canister says
to avoid contact with skin, but it hasn't irriated mine (yet, knock on
wood).  I just make sure I wash it off with soap and water afterwards.
