No Need to cut with scissors, simply use the sharp edge of a desk or table.
Cover Large Areas
If you need to cover a large area fast, simply cut the bandages twice the length you need and fold over.
Keep 'em flat
Keeping plaster bandages flat is a challenge. Rather then spending time flattening them out after you dip them, follow this procedure:
Grasp the bandages by all four corners. Use the thumbs and pointer fingers as shown and the little fingers against the palms of your hands.
Without releasing your grip, dip the bandages into the water.
Now push your hands together, remember, don't let go. You can wring all excess water out of the plaster bandages.
If you didn't loosen your grip on the four corners you can successfully open the plaster bandages and they will be flat and smooth, ready to apply.
