Hydro Seal Band-Aids
I cut myself a lot in the kitchen. A week rarely goes by without a cut. They’re never deep, but they’re annoying. They’re at the end of my fingers or on my thumbs. I don’t always get them from my knives, either. I can poke myself with a fork, for heaven’s sake. Or a peeler. The other day it was a grater. Good grief.
Regular bandages don’t really work because they come off when I keep washing my hands.
The other day I got a sample for a new Band-Aid. At the risk of sounding like a commercial, this is called a Hydro Seal. It has no gauze square. You put it on the cut and it stays on. The cool thing is that a day or so later a white bubble appears on the Band-Aid to let you know that your cut is healing.
I’ve used this Hydro Seal Band-Aid twice now and I love them. I had a cut on my thumb that just would not heal since I kept opening it up plus another near the nail on a finger on my right hand. I put the new Hydro Seal on both and they didn’t come off until the cuts were healed.
Dreambly Laundry Sheets
I confess that I love gadgets. This might be construed as a gadget, but it’s new enough and different enough that I think I’m going to try it.
You put one sheet in the washer, then put the same sheet in the dryer. It acts both as a laundry detergent and a dryer sheet. For convenience sake it might be fun to try those out.
How about you? Have you tried either of these products? Would you?
