You’ve been putting on plasters all wrong – here’s how they won’t fall off and will heal your wound quicker

WE should all have a first aid kit at home, just in case an accident happens.

But do you know the best way to use everything inside?

In a TikTok video shared by @lifehacksa, which has 1.1million views, they show how to make a plaster fit your finger so that it protects your injury for much longer.

Before you apply the plaster, grab some scissors to cut a vertical line down the middle of both ends of the plaster.

Remove the protective plastic backing to expose the sticky part of the bandage.


Put your finger on the sticky bit with the plaster laying down horizontally.

Now the tricky bit, fold down the newly cut flaps in a criss-cross motion to secure the plaster around your entire finger.

This method will keep even the cheapest plaster on your finger securely, keeping your cut covered and allowing you to heal without having to worry about changing your plaster every few minutes.

This new health hack may even save you money on plasters as you will use fewer than before.
