Band Aid solvent   (+2)  [vote for, against]

To be applied when the bandaid is ready to come off, the solvent permeates the holes in the bandaid and renders the adhesive ineffective, easing the bandaid's removal.

Available at most pharmacies. Isopropyl alcohol. Mmmm.

Use of such a solvent defeats the object of applying the "band-aid" or sticking plaster.

It is a well known fact that the purpose is to teach kids about irony, by applying something which will later cause more pain than the original injury.

What about soapy water?

Make dissolvable bandaids that come with a removal kit - and can be dissolved without the pain.

Encapsulate said solvent in time release capsules, and disperse these in the adhesive, so the band-aid just comes off easily after, say, 24 hrs.

Now if we could find some way to cause the band-aid to fall off at the most in-opportune moment...
