Sterilized Wraps

Sterilized Wraps– Wash and bleach a white sheet. Cut it in strips about 8 inches wide. I do width wise, but can be done length wise also. Take one end and roll it up one at a time. Wrap individually with brown paper (grocery bag) and put tape or a rubber band on it to keep it sealed. Line up on cookie sheet and bake at 225 degrees for 35 minutes. Remove and place in zip lock bags. I keep so in my car kit for emergencies as well as in my first aid kit.

Sterilized Dressings – Remember a dressing is sterile; a bandage is not. Soak clean cloth in a bleach solution (1/10) or hydrogen peroxide solution (50/50). Dry well. Wrap with foil or paper, label, and line up on a cookie sheet and place in oven at 300 degrees for 30 minutes. Remove from oven, let them cool and put them in zip lock bags. Place some in your car kit as well as in your first aid kit at home.
