RE: Mouth Tape Question
I have used Witch Hazel regular 14 % alcohol for other medical holding devices seals and tapes and it work well and was easy on my skin. You can also buy Witch Hazel toner with no Alcohol that a lot of folks use also. Witch hazel has been used for cleaning and skin care for over 100 + years! It is also astringent that can be used for other topical health matters.

None, because there's no residue from the tape I use, Fixomull stretch. Secondly, I pull my lips slightly inwards before applying the tape; that is also good for a better sealing.

I've re-grown my goatee--will this tape work with facial hair?

I rarely have any residue with Somnifix, and when there is a little, it comes off with a wet washcloth.

Yeah, I completely understand the problem, and for many people, several layers of micropore tape works and at a much lower cost.
