2019 Anarchist’s Gift Guide, Day 4: WoundSeal Topical Powder

woundseal_IMG_4667

There are occasional times in the shop I gash myself pretty good. I know that I don’t need stitches, but I also don’t want to wait for an hour for the wound to stop bleeding and set up enough that I can go back to work.

Enter WoundSeal – a fantastic powder that will seal up a gash instantly and create a scab that protects the area from further damage. You can buy it at any good drugstore.

First clean out the wound with soap and water. Let the blood well up again (this is important) and then apply the powder. The powder reacts with the blood and bam – the wound is sealed.

WoundSeal says that the stuff doesn’t burn or hurt when you apply it. I haven’t found that to be true. The stuff hurts – briefly. But that’s a small price to pay for the excellent results.

Don’t pick at the scab. I like to cover the scab with a bandage to prevent it from getting caught on something, though WoundSeal says that’s unnecessary.

Buy some today and keep it on hand. You’ll be glad the next time you slip with a chisel.
