The patch leaves a mark around the edges when I take it off…what do I do?
The patch is sticky to stay on during bathing, swimming and sweaty/strenuous activity. This does mean it can leave some residue around the edges where lint, fuzz, etc…gets stuck. We recommend just rubbing it off with soap and water.
