One of the most useful items in your medicine cabinet is probably the Band-Aid. It’s a product we’ve used for decades, but it really hasn’t changed much over the years.

When you grow up and live on your own, having Band-Aids is a must — you never know when you’re going to slice your finger while chopping vegetables or burn your hand while cooking.

And the best way to deal with these annoying little injuries? Throw a Band-Aid on it and go on with your day.

If you have kids or grandkids, you know how important these little adhesive bandages are — they’re a little miracle item. Anytime children get booboos, they believe it can be fixed with a Band-Aid; and because they believe it, it works!

The biggest problem with Band-Aids, though, is that they can sometimes slip off, especially after a long day of wear.

Instead of dealing with the awkward way they lay on your finger, try this incredible Japanese hack!

Step 1: Grab A Band-Aid

The first step of this genius Band-Aid hack obviously starts with getting a Band-Aid.

Use whatever style of Band-Aid is your favorite, whether that’s plastic, fabric, or foam.

Step 2: Open It Up

After cleaning your cut, go ahead and open the Band-Aid up. Be sure to recycle the wrapper!

Step 3: Lay The Band-Aid Flat

Now that your Band-Aid is out of the wrapper, lay it face-up on a table or other hard surface.

Make sure the sticky side is facing up.

Step 4: Cut A Horizontal Slit Into Both Sticky Sides

Leaving the paper on, cut a horizontal slit into both sides of the Band-Aid. Be careful not to cut into the gauze part of the Band-Aid.
