I first mentioned this “kit” in the thread on EDCing tape and said I’d do a separate post on it , so here goes: I’d like to say that this “kit” was entirely my idea, but that would be a lie. Plastic wrapping a handkerchief is an old practice in urban police departments. But, I like to think I’ve refined the idea and it’s uses. I’ve posted this in other forums and people really like it. It is so popular among friends and family, that I give them as presents for the holidays. It is a valued part of my own EDC. I start with a well washed, 27” x27” cotton bandana, in bright yellow. To assemble I use an ironing board , a HOT dry iron, ( Sterile) Gerber Breast Milk Bag, 4”x 21/8” cut piece of clear plastic report cover wrapped in 4” of 2” Gorilla Tape, a roll of Gorilla Tape, a sharp scissors, a book or small cutting board & some hand sanitizer. To begin , I hot iron the top and sides of the ironing board cover to sterilize it. I use sanitizer on my hands and the iron’s handle. I start ironing the bandana. About 1/2 fits on the board, the rest dangles. I iron it long and HOT , moving it up, so the whole bandana is basically sterilized. Then I start to fold it over on itself, HOT ironing and pressing down on both sides of each fold. I iron it down the pocket size , usually about 6 creases on long side and then 4 crease, folding that rectangle. ASAP, I slide it into the breast milk bag, press out the air ( use a book or small cutting board as a press) and seal the bag. You now have an almost sterile, certainly aseptic , vacuum sealed bandage / compress. Next step is to cut some 1” strips off the Gorilla Tape roll. Use the strips to tape down the folded top of the bag, to reinforce/ cover all 4 edges and 2” strip on the middle of theflat side ,without the taped down top fold. ( This arrangement allows some uncovered bag so the police / TSA to see its a bandana and not a lid of hash.) On the flat side with the folded bag top, lay the flat roll of Gorilla Tape. Use 1/2” strips of tape to secure the flat roll to the bag. So, what you now have is a good , rugged , flat, pocket- sized trauma pressure dressing & and the means ( i.e. the tape roll) to secure it in place. You can also use the tape and bag plastic to seal a sucking chest wound and the tape alone to seal exit wounds,. The tape can also be used to stave off or treat blisters to hands & feet and for whatever else duct type tape is good. The “kit” can also be used as a sling, smoke mask, hobo carry sack, signal flag, towel, sweat band, & to blow ur nose. Finally, I carry it in my front pocket against my wallet. It would take the greatest of all pickpockets to slide out that wallet without me taking instant notice as he snagged! I carry extra “ kits” in my EDC bag. OPTIONAL: If you are not going to carry the kit pressed in your pocket or bag, you can slide a Wet Ones wipe and a foil packet of antibiotic ointment under the flat roll. Don’t use this option if you pla to pocket carry. My own experience teaches it can get messy if pressed too hard. Try it. I can almost guarantee you’ll like it. Cheers.
