You've Been Putting on Band-Aids All Wrong© iStock.com/temmuzcan You've Been Putting on Band-Aids All Wrong You may think you mastered the art of Band-Aid application when you were a little kid, but we're here to tell you you're doing it wrong. You could be putting on your bandages way more effectively, according to Insider.

Getting a paper cut, blister, or other injury on your fingers, hands, and toes always makes for an awkward bandage situation. Straight Band-Aids aren't made to go on fingertips, and often, they slide right off with the slightest tug. This little life hack solves the problem with just a pair of scissors and just two snips.

All you need to do is make a cut down each adhesive strip of the Band-Aid so that instead of two sticky flaps securing the bandage in place, you have four. Place the bandage pad on top of the target area, holding it in place, then tear away the protective liners from the adhesive and criss-cross each strip around your finger, being careful to avoid the joint. Unlike the Band-Aids that are shaped like butterflies, you can wrap each of the four flaps individually so that it none of them are struck to the underside of your finger joint, so you'll be able to move your hand without the bandage bunching and moving on your skin.

How Earvin "Magic" Johnson Battled His Frightening Diagnosis

  How Earvin After his HIV diagnosis, Johnson put confident face on a terrifying disease and then got down to business.It’s hard now to imagine the context of his announcement. During the moralistic Reagan-Bush years, HIV/AIDS was still little understood by scientists or the public. The disease was believed to be fatal. (A few weeks after Johnson’s announcement, Freddie Mercury would die from complications resulting from AIDS.) In America, about 35,000 people died from the disease that year. And in 1992, AIDS was the number-one cause of death for men between 25 and 44.

Watch how it works around the 14:09 mark in the video from 5-Minute Crafts below.

The trick works on any part of your body to give your Band-Aid a more secure grip, whether that's on your knuckle, fingers, toes, ears, or any other body part that's tricky to stick a regular bandage on. It doesn't have quite the malleability of a liquid bandage, but it's a huge upgrade on the standard cloth or waterproof Band-Aid.

Want to test out the technique for yourself? Try some of these weird novelty bandages, which make it look like you're covering your wounds in pickles, bacon, and other odd designs.

Doctor reprimanded for removing wrong man's kidney.
Dr. Ankur Parikh removed a healthy kidney from 65-year-old Albert Hubbard Jr. after mistakenly reading the CT scan of another man with the same name. The state catalogued three mistakes on Parikh's part it said fell below the standard of care, including electing to remove the kidney despite observing it wasn't heavy with tumors. Parikh did not return a message left at his Worcester office Wednesday.
