Never tried to use hand sanitizer but some of the removal adhesive packs that some of the insurance companies cover works ok but if that is not covered by insurance Goo Gone makes a medical version (blue color liquid)  that is sold on Amazon that is good if your on a budget. The most pain free way is removing it during a warm shower as it will come off pain free and allows you to clean the skin around your stoma area to get alot of the adhesive off. Little trick is to dry off and put a little toilet paper around the end of the stoma if it has a mind of it's own (Note: avoid moisturizing soaps if doing this because it may cause issues for your new wafer) I will still use a adhesive remover after the shower and wipe the area clean with a damp paper towel afterwards before any skin prep. Hand sanitizer normally has alcohol and aloe which can irritate the skin and leave a film that may cause a issue with the new wafer sticking. Hope this helps.

Feline, that is kind of iffy because of the alcohol content but if you try, I would be careful around the stoma! 

I use a hairdryer to dry my skin before applying the flange and that works really well! Heat up the barrier too! Makes it stick better! Never a problem!
