Turns Out We've All Been Wearing Band-aids Wrong

Did you know there was a right way and a wrong way to wear a Band-Aid? Neither did I! Turns out you can get bandages to stay on your fingers better, and for longer, with these simple hacks. Read how to do it below!


  • Band-Aids
  • Scissors


Cut slits into the two sides of a bandage that you're putting on the tip of your finger.

Wrap the pieces so that the 2 top ones are pulled down and the 2 bottom ones are pulled up towards the top of your finger.

Your Band-Aid will stay on more securely and can't be pulled off.

When putting a bandage over a joint cut 2 slits in the side of the bandage again.

This time you'll stick the slits above and below the joint (so that your finger can still move without removing the Band-Aid).
