Two of my daughters and I are SO accident prone that we marvel when the end of the day rolls around and we don’t have a new scratch, bruise, or bump. It has happened twice – and we marveled each time. Okay, maybe we don’t get into that many scrapes – but enough to keep a fully stocked first aid kit at all times.
That’s actually a fantastic idea for everyone, you know. In August, alone, my daughter Brittany and I both required our first aid kit and were thrilled to see it full of the things we needed. I keep ours in the kitchen pantry because our kitchen is the hub of our home, PLUS this is where I a great deal of my boo boos take place. Thank you, extra sharp Wolfgang Puck knives.
If you don’t have a first aid kit already, you should find one this week and stock it up with gauze, band aids, triple antibiotic, hydrocortisone, Neosporin, medical tape, and so on. In our home, they’re as much staples as butter and toilet paper.
One product I highly recommend for your first aid kit is ABC Gauze. To get a full understanding of how cool this special gauze is, you’ll need to either require its services or check out ABC Gauze’s web site. I don’t recommend ouchies, so why don’t you just take a look at their web site?
Here’s a quick introduction: ABC Gauze is the new way to stop bleeding FAST in hundreds of diverse situations where bleeding can occur. ABC Gauze is an all natural, collagen-like substance created from regenerated cellulose, an effective hemostatic agent registered with the FDA to help control bleeding from wounds and in-body cavities. ABC Gauze is NOT like an ordinary piece of cotton gauze. When it comes in contact with blood… get this!…. it converts into a gel and stops the bleeding FAST.
Upon contact with blood, ABC Gauze instantly turns into a safe, clear gel that expands to create direct pressure, physically blocking and sealing off the damaged blood vessels. When ABC Gauze transforms into a gel, it increases platelet aggregation and stabilizes clot formation.
Removal is as easy as.. pun intended… ABC. ABC Gauze washes off with water and doesn’t hurt like sticky adhesives when you pull them off. Washing ABC Gauze off doesn’t reopen the wound or restart the bleeding.
ABC Gauze is available in many sizes and can be ordered, for reasonable prices, on the web site.
If you keep your knives as sharp as I keep mine, you know that the inevitable is, well, inevitable. Might as well be ready for it!
** By the way, in a related vein (sorry), did you know that when you use Hydrogen Peroxide, you should water it down? Brittany had to go to the ER a few weeks ago for stitches in her foot and the ER doctor told her that Hydrogen Peroxide actually destroys tissue and should never be used without first being diluted a little with water. Never knew that.
