There’s hardly a medical situation where a Band-Aid has failed to come to my rescue.
Cut myself shaving? Slap on a Band-Aid. Going out in a pair of excruciating (but also very pretty) shoes? A few Band-Aids will help.
Get a paper cut while writing 1001 love letters to the makers of Band Aids? Well… you get the idea.
So you can imagine my dismay, nay, my HORROR when I discovered that I’ve been putting these life-saving straps of plaster on ALL WRONG.
And chances are, you have been too.
It’s okay. We’ll get through this together, I promise.
According to a Japanese Band-Aid fan (hi, soulmate), there’s a way to guarantee that the sticky ends of the strip doesn’t get all…gunky and frayed and quite frankly, pretty gross.
All you need is a pair of scissors.
