Re: [IP] skin prep

i don't mean to sound like a total dummy, but what do you mean when you say
it forms a "barrier" between the skin and the tape?  the prep i use has
adhesive properties in it...it's sticky after it dries and hels the tape
stick better.  is this what you mean?  it is a huge pain to take off though.
if anybody has suggestions on how to alleviate that i would appreciate it.
