We all know that Duct tape can be used to repair many things, but did you know that you can use it to repair yourself? Consider putting duct tape in your first air kit the next time you go hiking. Read along and see how duct tape can remedy and prevent a variety of injuries.
Step 1: Bandage
You've wounded yourself. You tripped while hiking and skinned your knee or you cut your hand rock climbing. You need a bandage.
Determine the size of the wound to be covered. Make sure the wound is clean of dirt. If possible use antiseptic. Cut a length of gauze and fold it to the size of the wound. Then tear a piece of duct tape and place the gauze on the sticky side of the duct tape. Place the bandage on the wound with the gauze covering the wounded area.
