Nexcare Gentle Paper Tape FAQs
What is the best way to start my roll of Tape?
For Nexcare tape rolls that do not come with dispensers, run your finger around the roll until you feel a ridge. This is the edge of the tape. Use your fingernail to lift up the edge, then unroll whatever size piece you need. The tape tears easily by hand, so no need for scissors.
Tip: turn a short piece at the leading edge of the tape under to create an easy starting point for the next time you need it.
How do I remove a bandage/tape or dressing that will not release easily from my or my child’s skin?
If a bandage, tape or dressing is not easily releasing avoid pulling on it, instead work a little baby oil or cooking oil into the adhesive to help the product release from the skin. Or use ice (covered with a paper towel) for 5 minutes or less. Ice will make the adhesive brittle, which may cause it to release.
Do you have any products for sensitive skin?
If your skin has a tendency to react to adhesive, try our line of Sensitive Skin Products. They were designed for easy removal and are repositionable. Available in a bandage, tape, dressing and eye patch. Nexcare Gentle Paper Tape is also available in a 1″ x 10 yd. roll; 2″ x 10 yd. roll and a tape dispenser (3/4″ x 8 yds).
