Rachael shares her solution to an age-old problem:
Here’s my hack for removing those pesky band-aids that kids love to put on and HATE to have taken off: If you dip a cotton ball or q-tip in oil (olive or baby) and rub it against the band-aid, it will allow the band-aid to just fall right off. We’ve eliminated a lot of screaming in our house this way!
We often postpone bandage removal till after the bath for the same reason, but that’s because we cheap out an rarely buy waterproof bandages.
