To the Editor:  —In The Journal, July 7, Dr. H. F. Zoller recommended the use of ethyl acetate for the removal of adhesive plaster. Since this is almost impossible to obtain, especially in the country drug stores, I want to suggest the use of ordinary benzene. If the adhesive strips are moistened lightly with the benzene by daubing it on with bits of cotton, the plaster will come away nicely; then the stains from the adhesive plaster are scrubbed off with the remainder of the benzene in cotton.
