I love superglue. it has saved my family from many a trip to the ER.
and another one this morning :roll: note to self; toddlers and mirrors do not mix.

thankfully it's a small cut due to my creativity with the mirror; it had a mosaic edge stuck on with a glue strip called simplestick and this made it act almost like safety glass; it shattered but the pieces didn't go everywhere- well, all except the one which jabbed minime in the leg. So I suppose in this instance, my crafty c**k-ups saved the day.

small cut, quite deep, not gushing blood (and nowhere near an artery) and she could still feel her toes. After I'd done the assesment to see if we did need the ER, and once we'd stemmed the flow it was on with the superglue, hold till set then top off with a plaster. she's now happily bouncing around none the worse for wear, but I'm still trying to not feel guilty about the mirror- it was my fault it was somewhere she could reach it.

This was a tip given to me by the ER doctor who stuck hubby's ear back together after some numpty tried to beat the living cr@p out of him about 5 years ago - long story. Bostik superglue is the brand our local hospital uses; so it's been my brand of choice since then too. we have one tube for craft which can be any brand, (generally the pound shop's own brand) and a tube of Bostik which is kept in the medicine box- along with the tube of superglue remover for when I'm a little heavy handed and stick my fingers together with the craft stuff lol!!! again, saves a trip to casualty. I'm incredibly clumsy. I once stuck my fingers to my face.

big up superglue! have you ever used it to hold a wound together?! if not, why not?!

I'm clumsy as well, so I agree with ya completely. XD
