duct tape. working with oil is murder on the adhesive and honestly band aids are not up to the task. i have cleaned with alcohol and getting oil on them they will still release (yes it is a rather extreme application) . so i make my own from duct tape. it does not breathe well and basically you use the tape to stick to its self but it works and lasts for a decent amount of time. i usually cut a little piece of gauze and put triple a on a bleeding cut, just some gauze or something to keep the tape from ripping of scabs/tissue of a non-bleeding cut.

back to the original thread...yes band-aids are not as sticky or tough as i remember from yesteryear. Fabric is better than plastic imo.
Do you know where your towel is?

Aren't there 'sport', 'extreme' or 'premium' plasters you can get? I tried the more expensive ones with those labels and they do work a lot better than the cheaper ones.
