==Elastoplast Dressing Strip==
I am always nicking myself and not realising until I see the blood and of course that is when I feel the pain! Also my other half is really accident prone so of course with the mix of the two of us, our little boy is also forever scraping himself on some limb or the other. With this in mind I always make sure I have a ton of various plasters in my medicine cupboard.
I have tried all sorts of plasters over the years but I have to say I always prefer to use these Elastoplast Dressing strips. For around the £2.20 pence price range they are available in most stores that sell this sort of thing like Boots (where I purchased mine) or Tesco's and other supermarkets.
The box the strip comes in contains 10 separate strips and there are a good length and width at 6 cm by 10 cm. The strips can then be cut to the desired size and this is what I really like as when buying a pack of already cut plasters it is a sure bet that if you need a large plaster these have all long gone and only the tiny plasters are left!
I find these strip plasters not only great because they can be cut to the size you need but also because they seem to be a lot sticker than other plasters. Okay so the fact that they are not waterproof is a bit of a draw back but I have found with the waterproof ones they tend to wash of if they do get wet anyway.
The bandage itself has a little bit of stretch in it too which I find aids the lasting ability of the bandage to stick onto the area where you need it to. I find fingers and hands are the place where I seem to nick myself the most but because of all the work my hands do it is often tricky to keep a regular plaster stuck in place. However these fabric plasters seem to work the best at staying in place for the longest time.
All in all I can't really find anything too wrong with this Elastoplast Strip Dressings. There is plenty in a box for the price and they stick well to the skin for a good amount of time which ensures that the cut stays clean and out of the way of anything that will make it sting. The only draw back is that they are not waterproof but this doesn't bother me as I find even if these do get wet they are less likely to fall off than the actual plasters that claim to be waterproof (they just get a bit soggy!). I will keep buying these Elastoplast strips over other plasters and of course I will highly recommend anyone buying them!
It has to be a top score of 5 out of 5 star!
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you
Many thanks for taking the time to read.
