 My issue is getting them off as well. I find that it is best to take it off
right out of the shower. I've looked into mastisol, but it seems very expensive
considering the amount that you get. I was having issues with the pods on my
lower back. so I've never bought it. I, too, use only an alcohol wipe for
prepping the area.

Have you tried using no product at all to prep your site? I do nothing 
to my sites other than a thorough cleaning with an alcohol pad and the 
only adhesive issue I have is sometimes it's hard to get it off cleanly 
after the 3 days.
Sure, each person's skin is different, and I think it depends in part on 
where the pod is places; but my CDE trainer never suggested anything 
other than alcohol and I've read at least 1 or two people report that IV 
Prep actually makes it worse.
