Rated 5 out of 5 by Simply Amazing! I was a little weary when first trying this product, since I always seem to be doing dishes or washing my hand; but upon the very first time I used this bandage (a cut on my finger), it lasted all the way through an entire load of hand washing dishes and then some! I was amazed!!! January 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Reliable Protection I like this product a lot because it doesn't allow any water to seep into the wound area like other brands. Nexcare is a great brand. January 8, 2014
