  • I saw this one and thought it would be great for our group.  As we're all bakers, it makes sense that we usually keep a good supply of eggs in our homes. But here is a really unusuall, but really good, reason to keep eggs in your house...never know when you'll cut yourself while preparing your next baked dish!


    Who knew? If emergency occurs... While the blood is gushing - hold pressure and crack open an egg. Peel that membrane off and put it on the wound (continue holding pressure) The membrane will harden and keep the wound closed until you can get stitches?

    A tip from your favorite nurse

    (that’d be me)

    Always have eggs in your fridge

    You just never know when someone will split their head open

    Or cut their finger while cooking

    And so on

    See that membrane there?

    While the blood is gushing - hold pressure and crack open an egg

    Peel that there membrane off and put it on the wound (continue holding pressure)

    The membrane will harden and keep the wound closed until you can get to the ER for stitches

    If you even need them that is

    Nature: 1, Band aids: 0

    You’re welcome.
