I used soap. But first I pulled the arm about half way inside out. Soaped up the inside of skin, including fingers and up to wrist area. Soap applied to arm fingers and wrist. Squeeze lower thumb on arm to slide skin up to that point. Stick your hand into the other end of skin to feel the fingers and make sure they are in the correct place. Push on fingers a bit to spread them out as you slide the skin up to the wrist and past the thumb area. Feel inside to make sure fingers are in place. Sometimes this took a few attempts. Then soap up the rest of arm and skin and slide up arm. I used used paper tape to keep the veins in place. Thanks for all the suggestions. Mike
It is quite a chore... The problem we had recently when replacing the skin, was that the skin was too small for the Manikin. We tried everything, dish soap, powder, even soaking in really hot water. Nothing worked, finally had to ask Laerdal to send us another one and that one fit. Dish soap does work best when putting on the skins, you can also try placeing skin in really hot water for a while to soften it up and make more pliable (that may help some).
