I already thought of a great name to call it. Reply No, I haven’t been applying them wrong, they’ve been designed wrong! Reply I never thought to take the paper strips off *after* the cloth part goes over the affected area. I feel really dumb right now. Reply Hmm. Shallow and pedantic. I didn’t know they discontinued butterfly bandaids which this is modeled after Reply No, we haven’t been applying them wrong – *you* have been using the wrong bandage. Reply You could just buy fingertip and knuckle bandages, way better than regular bandaids Reply Who uses bandaids? Reply Liquid bandaid…. Reply Not so much of a pro tip, more common sense? Reply Seems like Band-Aid have been making Band-Aid wrong. Reply Whatever. Reply Yeah, because when my finger is dripping blood everywhere, I’ve got the time (and dexterity) to cut a bandaid just so. Reply His first attempt reminds me of those info commercials where they give a very shitty first try. Reply Been wearing Band-aids for over 50 years, and have always worn them the first way. I’ve never had a problem with them coming off. This is nothing more than propaganda to sell more scissors. Reply Just because it works, does not mean it’s the right way. If you have to cut it with scissors, it obviously wasn’t designed to be used like that. Get different band-aids, they have ones designed for use on fingers. Reply Who has the time? Reply I think the real tip here is that most adhesive bandages are made to be cut without the adhesive gumming up scissors, so if you don’t have the right kind you could potentially make it fit better. But yeah, as pointed out, you could also just have a better supply of bandages. Reply Great, cannot wait to cut myself at work Reply Game changer Reply When you realise your whole life has been a lie… Reply No, bandages have a manufacturing flaw if this is how they’re supposed to be used. Reply Cos when you’re bleeding, you reach for the scissors. Fighting a sharp object with a sharper one Reply By the time I cut the thing into pieces I’ll have bled to death Reply I find it odd they don’t even make an attempt to pull the second method off the finger like they did the first, “wrong” method. Reply The second bandaid on his finger joint is way too tight. You can already see the finer turning purple before the camera cuts. Fail hack again… Reply LPT: before applying a band-aid, go to a hospital and scrub-in Reply If I cut my finger or fingers at work I just wrap tissue then tape up until bleeding stops then take off and get on with it!! Band aids are for Pussys!!! Reply @ the twitter OP. *I* haven’t been applying them wrong, *they* have been making them wrong. If this is even the intended method of application. Reply Fuck off Reply This is why finger bandages already exist Reply In defense of this hack, it works really well in our elementary school. We can’t afford to buy knuckle and fingertip Band-Aids; as it is, we go through more than 3,000 bandages every school year. By modifying bandaids, we save about $100 a year. Reply I love the ridiculous 32kbps music. It’s so awful. Reply Ain’t nobody got time for that Reply That was a 20 seconds craft tbh. Reply When ever I cut myself I’m usually freaking out so I don’t have much time to cut the Band aid. Reply WHY DIDNT THEY TUG ON IT THE SECOND TIME?? THEY DIDNT EVEN PUT IT THROUGH THE TEST THIS WHOLE THING IS ABOUT Reply They actually have band aids that are specifically made for cuts on the finger. Reply When I’m bleeding, I don’t got no time for dat. Reply There’s no need to cut them if you put them on correctly in the first place. The first example was idiotic. Reply Get lost OP. Reply Cut my finger with scissors. Now what? Reply If they were meant to be installed thatt way, they would have been pre-cut. Reply I hope those scissors are very clean. Reply I just duct tape it so it won’t fall off Reply WRONG Reply Odds are I probably cut myself with said scissors and that is why I need the band aid. No need to add more danger into the mix. Reply The background music in the video was pleasant Reply better than buying an overpriced box of super specific bandaids. Reply Ha! Saw this an hour ago, and just cut my finger while shaving…time to give it a go I guess… Edit: worked well, thanks OP! Reply Oh if only you could buy boxes of bandages in all shapes and sizes. Including premade ones that work just like this. Oh, wait. You can! Reply I hate when people remove the adhesive cover before applying the bandage. Use the white flaps to apply the bandage, its faster and more sterile. Reply DUDE, my finger is BLEEDING SLIGHTLY! I don’t have time for *that!* Reply Or you could just buy the butterfly bandages. Reply I’m already bleeding. I don’t have time to cut a bandaid. Reply Anyway there called plasters!!! Band Aid is a company that makes Plasters!!! Reply I can’t wait for my next cut finger in order to try this out. Reply The scissors are the reason I’m hurt in the first place and they want me to use them again to cut my bandaid. Reply DIG butterfly band aid. So freaking obvious and awesome! Reply God, I didnt even do the wrong method right Reply For anyone wondering what that goofy song is like I was it’s [Kevin MacLeod ~ Gonna Start v2](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ocw1yf7nHX8) Reply Same result. Reply No thanks, I’m not going to take advice on how to apply a bandage from a “5 minute crafts” video. Reply What a glorious symphony, these ethereal notes makes me think that this is music from heaven. Reply There is nothing wrong with the first method. Reply Ha! that’s how I… Ow that’s the wrong way… Reply Well if I were competent enough to use scissors, I wouldn’t need the bandaid in the first place. Reply 7/10 would watch again Reply They skipped the last step, where you draw a smiley face on the bandage. Reply This is a shit lifehack. Scissors are bacteria hoarders. Don’t cut your bandaids. Put them on properly instead of carefully laying it on top like he does just to show that he can pull it off. And while we’re at it, buy proper bandaids. Those are absolute shit. Reply Cut my finger at a robotics competition. Couldn’t afford having the bandage come off because we were behind. Bandaid + Electrical tape. Faster and more secure. Plus I couldn’t cut that part of my hand again! Reply Bandaids Reply Cutting the sticky part in that way doesn’t seem to be very beneficial. It seems like it is actually reducing the surface area of the sticky part, making it MORE likely to come off… Reply Produce ’em that way – Make Millions 💸 🙂 Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Connect with: Your email address will not be published.
