This Weeks Tip

Here’s a great cure for one of life’s most painful little nuisances: the paper cut. Dab a small drop of non-toxic Super Glue (or Krazy Glue, or other strong bond adhesive) on the cut. This adhesive bonds the skin together and prevents air and dirt from getting in, relieving the pain. Just be careful not to touch anything until the glue dries, unless you want it to be a permanent fixture! (Note: this solution is not recommended for cuts or scrapes larger than a paper cut.)
