How do you remove the Secure from your fingertips after applying? It sticks to your fingers and it seems to be really difficult to remove. Is there a solution I can use? Vinegar? Alcohol?

What I do is have hot water running and immediately after applying I stick my finger in the hot water and wipe on a paper towel. I do this even before I put my teeth in. The longer it is on my finger, the harder to get off. I use a q-tip to put Secure on my lower plate. Easier to get it in the tight place and nothing on finger.

I used alcohol and followed up with soap and water and it got most of it off.

I use alcohol wipes, the type used before giving a shot.

I have them on hand because of a medicine I use that I have to inject. But they are pretty cheap and you can buy them wherever diabetic supplies are sold. They work like a charm.
