Those of you who don’t know me may be surprised to learn I am a total spaz. I trip over my own feet. I crash into doorways in my own home. I’m generally a mess. My eldest seems to be following my footsteps and recently learned to ride his bike without training wheels. I’m in caught in the moment of being insanely proud, but cringing as I wait for that first trip to the ER to set a bone. Recently I was contacted by the fine folks at ABC Gauze -bear with me, I know this is just riveting- to review one of their products. I thought for sure I’d have an opportunity to completely test drive the product with the rate my family has been tearing through bandages.
You do know that fate mocks me, right?
My husband sliced his finger cutting a plum an hour before our samples arrived. He was fine, I was annoyed. Since the 2 2″x2″ samples arrived last week there hasn’t been a scratch in this house. It’s downright eerie.
Still, the concept of these cellulose insta-scabs intrigued me and since I don’t actually want anyone in my family to hurt themselves, I tried out my sample with water. The packets are easy to open and you place the square over the wound. Done. The material is sticky enough when damp to stay in place and washes off with water. No more pulling out hair to remove a bandage.
The second square is going in my first aid kit until the product arrives in retail stores. Unfortunately at the moment, it’s only available through their website.
(1) 2″x4″ bandages.
