AW Extra 6/21/12 - Liquid Bandage


Doesn't matter what I'm doing, I always find a way to nick my hands in the shop. I know I should seal those cuts to avoid infection, but too often I let it go. My hands are so busy that I have a heck of a time getting bandages to stick! New Skin, $4, is a liquid bandage that has now earned a permanent place by my bench. It's no substitute for stitches, but it's excellent for sealing small nicks and cuts. Once you brush New Skin over a cleaned cut, it dries almost instantly. It bends and flexes along with your real skin. And it's less obvious than a bandage, so your co-workers and woodworking buddies won't see the results of your mishaps. There are 50 applications in a bottle, according to the manufacturer.

Available at most drug stores
New Skin, $4 for 0.3 fluid oz.
