Painless Adhesive Bandage Removal

Removing Adhesive Bandages without Pain


While it may seem your toddler would like an adhesive bandage for every imaginable boo-boo, chances are he's not so keen on having them removed.

To make this painful procedure ouch-free, simply soak a cotton ball in baby oil and gently rub over the bandage until it falls off.

If you don't have baby oil handy, olive oil will work just as well.
