  •  You are so right!!!!!!! (5+ / 0-)

    I was pulling paper towel particles off the wound.  My shop towels are in the truck (and not particularly sanitary at this point).  BUT, now I will keep some in the apartment along with the steri-strips which are basically butterfly bandaids (I think my father used duct tape when we were kids).  I do know one of the problems with paper towels is the bleach and other shite.

    I have neosporin but have to get more because I think it is way over the shelf date.

    Thanks, CroneWit.  No inflammation around the cut and I've been soaking it with peroxide -- which I buy by the gallon because of the cats and I use it with baking soda for brushing teeth prior to using the toothpaste.

    •  How do you use peroxide with the cats? (6+ / 0-)

      Catbox cleaning?  Or smells?  (And I didn't know you could buy it by the gallon.)

      I'll be going offline fairly soon (I hope) but if you reply I'll catch it tomorrow, god willing.

      Have to find sekritarmy first, though!

      •  I used the peroxide (6+ / 0-)

        for me this time, but have used peroxide on the cats when they scratch each other -- no use if there's a bite involved.  My vet told me to use vinegar and water if the cat has ear issues because it is often a yeast infection rather than mites.  For ear mites, I use olive oil.

        Have a good night dearie!!!!
