Although I pride myself in being tough, I have to admit that there’s one thing that makes me cringe—removing Band-Aids! Sometimes I pull them off very, very slowly—trying to produce as little pain as possible, while other times I go with the rip-it-off-as-fast-as-possible technique. Fortunately, if you have a little shampoo in the house, you can forget both of these and get that Band-Aid off without any pain at all! Simply squirt a few drops of shampoo on top of your bandage and allow it to soak through to the adhesive section. Let the shampoo sit for a few minutes, and you should be able to pull the bandage up without any sticking—or crying!
