Recreational Cyclocross and Gravelbiking - Removing Embrocation?

Does anyone have a good solution for after racing embrocation removal? I know sportsbalm sells one, but was wondering if there was a home remedy?

Soap and water.
Soap and water.
I wish this worked... unfortunately my experience is that it doesn't.

I was indeed using the super hot stuff. Our season was ridiculously cold at times this year. I came to love the sportsbalm "hot". That said, I was also hoping someone had something they used after races when showers are not always available.
Misapplication is dangerous... reusing bibs or skinsuits without washing is definitely not recommended.

I've been using babywipes, but only with the medium/mild Mad Alchemy, which isn't particularly hard to remove.
Babywipes for quick post-race cleanup, then scrubbing with soap and water to get the last bits off in the shower at home.
