You can buy plaster adhesive solvent at most pharmacies. One trade name is 'Zof' but there are generics.

Don't use soap.
In the shower or just after, while you are still wet, rub at the glue and it will roll off.

Baby oil (or any oil), just rubbed on with a flannel in the shower/bath. Comes off easily, but make sure skin isn't oily when you go to stick on the next patch.
