A tip from your favorite nurse
(that’d be me)
Always have eggs in your fridge
You just never know when someone will split their head open
Or cut their finger while cooking
And so on
See that membrane there?
While the blood is gushing - hold pressure and crack open an egg
Peel that there membrane off and put it on the wound (continue holding pressure)
The membrane will harden and keep the wound closed until you can get to the ER for stitches
If you even need them that is
Nature: 1, Band aids: 0
You’re welcome.

natural band aid with a coagulant or sealing agent, egg membranes. mind blown.

Great idea!!!!
earthbeneathourfeet:

I was using shoe boxes as cold frames for my lettuce in my window boxes a few weeks ago when we had a sudden cold snap. I’m not sure if it did any good though.

Here’s another fun and easy cold frame idea…clear umbrellas!  I love that they are affordable and small enough to work in lots of garden spaces.
