Huh: We’ve been applying adhesive bandages incorrectly all of our lives


There are two methods to properly apply a patch

There are times when we have to use plasters more often than we’d like, especially when young children reach an age when they seem to need a plaster every day. One of the places we most often need a plaster is the fingers. This is not surprising, of course, because accidents can happen while cooking, cutting food, etc. Have you always applied band-aid to your fingers correctly?

The explanation is simple; you’ve been applying the patch incorrectly all your life! There are two methods to properly apply a patch to a finger.
