How to sterilize bandages at home?

Medical bandages are most commonly used as a wound or wound protection agent. Since the bandage directly contacts the open wound, the bandage used is sterile. All bandages are guaranteed to be sterile before being removed from the packaging, but maintaining sterility when the packaging is removed or damaged will ensure that it is free of potentially harmful pathogens. Ultraviolet rays and iodine are the most effective ways to ensure that the bandages you use are free of dirt, bacteria, and viruses.

Before using gauze, clean the wound with soap and water or peroxide. If the wound itself is contaminated, sterile gauze will not prevent infection.

Put it in the UV room for one hour and one hour. This will kill any bacteria and contaminants on the surface of the gauze.

If you can't enter the UV chamber, put the gauze in a pot of boiling water. Let the gauze sit in boiling water for 2 to 3 minutes. Remove it and place it on a surface thoroughly cleaned with soap and water to prevent re-contamination.

Put iodine on the gauze and disinfect it with boiling water or ultraviolet rays. Immediately place the gauze iodine side down on the wound.

How to use bandages?

Support the injured part of the body where it was when the bandage was opened. Use bandages of the right size-different parts of the body require bandages of different widths. Avoid covering your fingers or toes when bandaging your limbs so you can easily check the circulation. Wrap the bandage tightly, but not tightly, fold it up, and finally tie the knot to secure the end. You can also use safety pins, tape or bandage clips. As soon as the bandage is opened, ask if it feels too tight, and then press the nail or a piece of skin to check the loop until it becomes pale. If the color does not come back right away, the bandage may be too tight, so you should loosen it. Limbs will swell after injury, so check the circulation every 10 minutes after being bandaged.

How to clean the wound?

Wash and dry your hands thoroughly. If you have gloves, wear disposable gloves. Do not try to remove anything embedded in the wound. Seek medical advice. Rinse the wound under running water for 5 to 10 minutes.

Soak the gauze pad or cloth in saline or tap water, or use an alcohol-free wipe, gently wipe or wipe the skin-do not use preservatives, as this may damage the skin

Gently pat the dry area with a clean towel or paper towel, but there is nothing as soft as a cotton wool ball that will stick to the wound.
