Commercial hand cleaners used by mechanics do a great job of removing body
markings such as race numbers.  They can be found at auto parts stores and
your local super market.   They do a much better job than cold cream, don't
hurt as much as a wire brush, and a buckandahalf gets you a giant tub of the
stuff.

There is some eco sensitive product out there too but never tried that.

I've found that eye makeup remover does an excellent job too.

You can also pick up a box of individually packaged *** swabs at any
pharmacy for about the same price. They work great and won't break or come
open and make a mess in your transition bag.

Why remove body markings?  I don't!  They are great conversation starters, and
I;ve worked so hard for them, I'm damn well going to show them off!

After my second triathlon, I had a volunteer re-mark me because my wetsuit
rubbed my numbers off.  You can't wear the race t-shirt for a week straight,
but you can get away with not washing off your numbers!

BTW, sunscreen has yet to fail me as the best way to remove numbers (now that
I have a couple dozen races under my belt, I can wear a new race t-shirt
every day for a month).

Soap works Yes!  

Just use a washcloth with soap on it in the shower.  

The washcloth is the key.

I realize this is not a hi-tech, esoteric approach, but it has always
worked for me.

Heck, why wash your numbers off?

After your first triathlon, before you have a tan, don't wash the
numbers off and then spend a lot of time in the sun the next few days.
You then have a reverse tattoo of your numbers that people ask about all
summer long:-)  Time to BRAG:-)

It goes something like this:

What are those numbers?

These numbers!! Oh I am a TRIATHLETE!! I do TRIATHLONS:-)

triathlons eh? Does your dad really let you SHOOT a GUN?

No a TRIATHLON is....  NEVER MIND:-(

I have found after my first tri that fingernail polish remover and a cotton swab
work really well, if you are not swimming in salt water, or if you skin is not
too porous.

Steel wool and a little elbow grease, followed by a large bandage and maybe a
skin graft.
