Tesco Assorted Fabric Plasters
Advantages: Handy, stay on well
I think its always important to have plasters around the house for those little accidents you can't avoid. I keep a box in my kitchen cupboard as this is where I find most accidents happen, generally with the slip of a knife so its good to have them on hand.
The box that I have is a box of assorted fabric plasters from Tesco and on the front it tells me that there are 40 different plasters in the box. On the back of the box it says that these plasters are, "Ideal for protection of wounds, they are durable yet breathable to aid the natural healing process. Soft and flexible, they are comfortable to wear. These plasters feature a non-stick antiseptic pad to prevent infection and a hypoallergenic latex free adhesive to minimise the risk of an allergic reaction."
The plasters come individually wrapped although there are two plasters linked together and in order to separate you just need to tear down the perforations. I like that they are individually wrapped because sometimes all you need is one and in this way you are not ruining other plasters just trying to get into one. They are wrapped in paper and it is easy to get them out as all you do is pull when the little blue arrows indicate and the paper comes apart revealing the plaster inside. I think this is really handy because the paper wrapping sort of holds onto the plaster meaning you can pull off the plastic strip at the back, revealing the sticky portion of the plaster and attach it to your wound before the other end of the plaster comes out of the wrapping so it makes it really easy to put on, especially if you are doing it yourself and have no help.
I find these plasters stick really well and you can leave it on for a day before needing to change it if its a really bad cut. I think fabric plasters work much better, especially on your hands as if they get wet they do not come unstuck like plastic plasters. I find they stick better to your skin too and do not move about as much as a plastic plaster does.
Inside the box there are three different sizes which is really handy. There are 20 20x70mm plasters which are long rectangles, 12 20x40mm which are smallish rectangles, and 8 34x70mm plasters which are the biggest ones. I like all these different sizes as there are ones to wrap around fingers but then there are also plasters which are perfect for wounds on other parts of the body too like knees for little kids.
All in all a good box of plasters from Tesco.
