So the last challenge I gave the Elastoplast Heavy Fabric Waterproof plasters was to wrap a nappy up with the supplied fabric piece and submerged it into water to see how waterproof it is.
Plunging into the water…
ooo…a stream of air bubbles was seen coming out from several places of the plaster…I’m worried about the nappy…
…and my fears were realised when I opened the parcel to reveal a soaked nappy. It had been in the water for less than a minute, and it was quite wet already. I suppose water could have seeped in from the edges of the parcel. However, my main concern was how the fabric reacted to water when soaked – see the corners of the fabric in the photo above? the material has definitely taken on water, which is similar to what I experienced with the plaster on my finger.
The conclusion to these tests of the plaster: a flexible, firm plaster that has a level of waterproofness, but you would expect to change it every few hours.
…and a drumroll please for the announment of the compeition winner….
Congratulations! An email has been sent to you with details.
I’m sure you all enjoyed the little competition as much as I did, hopefully we’ll see more of these later on!
