1. Keep a couple in my car's first aid kit for putting in/on cuts.

Tampon on the cut, pad over, wrap with tape to hold in place.

Yay for tampons.

3. Good idea!

I don't have a FA kit in my car. Need to fix that.

2. We used them in basic training in the Army to

protect our newly waxed floors from scratches made by the legs on our bunks. Set each bunk leg on a tampon until inspection time.
