My family pretty much keep the plaster industry in business. Aside from the fact that I’m really accident prone in the kitchen – I’m not kidding, a meal is hardly a meal if I haven’t shed blood or given a burnt flesh offering, and quite frankly my life insurance should have gone up when I started a food blog! But aside from that, my youngest daughter tends to be an accident waiting to happen too. She can fall over from a stationary position, that child.
I always carry plasters around in my handbag because any fall, no matter how big or small can pretty much be ‘fixed’ by a plaster. Okay, that’s not entirely true, but it would be if my children were in charge. They would use plasters for decorative tattoos. Especially the ones with Disney characters on them.
The problem I have is that the boxes always end up scrunched up in the bottom of my bag, and the contents scattered across the inside, which is just a waste really.
Recently Elastoplast have found a solution to my problem! They’ve launched these cute retro vintage tins for keeping your plasters safe and secure in your handbag – I have two so there’s one for my kitchen too!
The good thing about this cute little tin is that you don’t have to fill it with plasters only, but can put safety pins, nail clippers or other every day essentials in the box too, making it an on the go emergency kit.
One tip I can offer you, if you find yourself handing out plasters like Halloween candy, is to stick to the plain old ‘boring’ varieties. If it has pictures on, my kids will throw themselves down stairs for one! But the plain skin toned variety are less tempting.
And also, as a mother, I’m always in and out the kitchen, dipping my hands in the washing machine, helping with bath and hair and face cleaning, and the Elastoplast plasters hold up really well to the in – and – out of wetness conditions, though of course you have to change them frequently so your fingers don’t go soggy underneath.
Well, I think these tins are really cute, and super convenient!
