Nexcare Bandages Contest – What will Nana do next?
My family tends to go through bandages like there is no tomorrow. I am especially guilty (just ask my husband), as I am constantly cutting myself in one way or another. Whether it be a sharp kitchen knife, a razor knife, or just a pair of scissors, I am always running to the cabinet for bandages (and no, I don’t run with scissors!). It is actually kind of a running joke in our household, and my husband often tells people, “Don’t give my wife sharp objects!”.
Since I get so many cuts, I am pretty particular about my bandages. I think I may have just discovered my new favorites – Nexcare™ Waterproof Bandages. Why? Well for several reasons (which I will explain below).
Shortly after I received a couple of boxes of Nexcare™ Bandages to try, I cut my fingertip. I don’t even know how I did it actually, but yep, I sliced it good. Since I am constantly getting my hands wet (washing dishes, hands, etc.), I usually struggle with bandages coming off shortly after I put them on. Not only is it annoying, but leaving a cut uncovered can lead to infection. I certainly don’t have time for that!
I tried one of the Nexcare™ Waterproof Bandages and let me tell you, this sucker stayed on through many, many hand washes. This is possible thanks to the smart folks at Nexcare™ Brand who created the bandages using innovation and technology that creates a barrier between wounds and everyday activities. I honestly don’t think that any bandage I have used in the past has this technology. It is genius!
The next day, my husband managed to reopen a previous cut on his arm. But this time, it would not stop bleeding. I cleaned him up and applied a Nexcare™ Bandage and although it was bleeding, it did not “leak”. We were talking about it a couple of hours later, and his exact words were, “I don’t know why it was bleeding so much, but thank goodness the bandage we used had sealed ‘edges’ to keep it all in.”. The best part is that he didn’t even know that I was “reviewing” these! Now THAT is impressive! I explained to him that the “edges” provide a 360 degree seal, keeping out water, dirt and germs to help prevent infections.
As a matter-of-fact, 3M products have been trusted by doctors and nurses for over 60 years. I can definitely see why.
Speaking of our love for Nexcare™ Waterproof Bandages, there is someone else who loves them as well – Nexcare™ Nana! You might remember her videos from last year, and now this wild and crazy gal is back! She is a tough critic, and puts Nexcare™ Bandages to the test against water, germs and dirt. Nexcare™ Bandages & Nexcare™ Nana would love for Americans nationwide to help Nana choose her next adventure.
This is where you come in! What ideas can you come up with, that you would love to see her do? The “What Will Nana Do Next?” contest is serious fun, and all you have to do is submit an idea for Nana’s next challenge. If you are lucky enough to be the Grand Prize winner, you will be able to see your idea come to life in a video featuring Nana showing how Nexcare™ Waterproof Bandages hold up amazingly well against some of life’s toughest challenges.
