Spray plaster

Was just looking online to show SWMBO the sort of plasters I prefer to use, as she uses something very different in Ukraine, and came across this.
Never heard of it before - has anyone here tried it? How well does it work? How long does it last (does it wash off easily)? Is it any good?

Re: Spray plaster

I use this one as an emergency on walks http://www.tcpfirstaid.com/tcp-spray-plaster.html as it works even when the skin is wet
I tend to use it when I have a long scratch from briars or barbed wire as it stops the blood pouring all over my clothes
It doesn't wash off easily but can be pealed off when needed

Re: Spray plaster

Do you know what I thought you were meaning when I saw the title of the thread and picturing your SWMBO plastering walls.
But I digress. I usually use a paint on substance called New Skin, but not for a long time, the only entry for I could find is an American site http://www.drugstore.com/new-skin-first-aid-antiseptic-liquid-bandage/qxp13279
Don't know if its still available in the UK now.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: Spray plaster

Not having ever done waxing I wouldn't know but it isn't painful or even uncomfortable as basically it is too thin to actually pull anything

Re: Spray plaster

I would add that I wouldn't know what waxing feels like either.

Re: Spray plaster

I think I'll give one of these sprays a whirl next time I need to buy some plasters.
