How To: Stock a First Aid Kit for Your Bathroom

After we posted Willow's First Aid Boxes yesterday, we thought we should follow up with a post on how to stock a kit for your bathroom. For the best advice, we turned to the American Red Cross: According to the Red Cross' list of disaster supplies, a home first aid kit should contain the following: • (20) adhesive bandages, various sizes. • (1) 5" x 9" sterile dressing. • (1) conforming roller gauze bandage. • (2) triangular bandages. • (2) 3 x 3 sterile gauze pads. • (2) 4 x 4 sterile gauze pads. • (1) roll 3" cohesive bandage. • (2) germicidal hand wipes or waterless alcohol-based hand sanitizer. • (6) antiseptic wipes. • (2) pair large medical grade non-latex gloves. • Adhesive tape, 2" width. • Anti-bacterial ointment. • Cold pack. • Scissors (small, personal). • Tweezers. • CPR breathing barrier, such as a face shield. You can purchase complete first aid kits through the Red Cross here. Image: First Aid Box from Urban Outfitters, $14.99
