Tesco Assorted Fabric Plasters
Advantages: They stick very well
Disadvantages: None for me
Plasters are something that just about everyone keeps in the home and we are no exception. The plasters I currently have are Tesco Fabric Plasters, I personally hate waterproof plasters, they always seem to rigid and for some reason never stick to me. I picked up a packet of Fabric Plasters from my local Tesco which cost just £1.00 for a pack of 40.
The plasters are sold in a box which is mainly green and white, the front of the box has the Tesco logo across the top and also informs the customer that these are Assorted Fabric Plasters which promise to be soft ad durable, breathable and flexible. The box also shows a few pictures of the plasters.
The back of the box gives instructions for use and states that the plasters are low allergy and have latex free adhesive. This information is written in very tiny writing and quite difficult to read.
The back if the box also shows the 3 different size plasters the box contains, these are:- 20 plasters measuring 19 x 72mm, 12 plasters measuring 19 x 38mm and 8 plasters measuring 25 x 76mm.
All of the plasters are individually wrapped in a white paper wrapper, this pulls apart at one end, the plasters are the usual light brown colour and have a little pad of lint in the middle, the sticky part of the plaster has the usual paper over it which pulls apart when you apply the plaster.
I have bought these plasters several times and have always been pleased with them. They always stick well and protect any cut very well. I always change a plaster everyday and I find these will easily stick for this amount of time without curling up at the edges and starting to peel off. They don't however stand being wet, this will make them come unstuck straight away although to be fair they are not sold as waterproof plasters anyway.
I like the fact that all the plasters in this pack are what I would call a sensible shape, well for me personally anyway, if I need a plaster its usually a simple cut or sore toes from shoes that have rubbed, all the plasters in this box are rectangle shaped and ideal for this type of thing and always protect the wound whatever it is very well.
All in all I would recommend the Tesco Fabric Plasters, personally speaking they always stick well and don't curl up at the edges, the price is good and they are all what I would called usable sizes so there's never any that always get left or need trimming down. If like me you always like to have plasters in the house I would recommend these, they are good value for money.
