Tired of Bandages Falling Off Every Time You Wash Your Hands? It’s Time to Try Waterproof Bandages

It’s a problem that probably sounds familiar. You get a small nick on your finger, cover it with a bandage, and then, not five minutes later, you have to wash your hands. Off comes the soggy bandage and on goes another. That’s why it’s a good idea to pick up waterproof bandages.

One obvious benefit of buying waterproof bandages is that they will stay on better than regular bandages if they get wet. Plus, by keeping water out, your cut won’t be exposed to moisture. This helps to reduce the risk of infection. Waterproof bandages are good options for swimmers as well. Of course, waterproof bandages are not totally impervious to water. Eventually, they’ll come off due to water exposure. But you should be changing the bandage daily anyway, so these waterproof bandages will offer enough protection and grip that you won’t have to constantly change them.

These are some of the best waterproof bandages to buy, including options for kids, large bandages for covering bigger cuts, as well as flexible bandages that are specifically designed for the contours of your hands and fingers. And whether it’s a Judy emergency kit or survival kit, it’s always a good idea to add a box of waterproof bandages to your emergency supplies.
