Comments about Kendall Stretch Gauze, 3 in x 4.1 yards, 4.1 yd:
I bought this thinking this was normal gauze that I could cut to lengths and but under a bandage. Well, I can cut it to length, but the gauze is so thin and the spaces are so wide that it's actually not easy to cut, and it barely does anything. I just had surgery and need to keep gauze over my wounds so the bandages don't stick, and this barely does the job. Won't buy this again.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Recommended Uses A secondary layer for minor wounds, cuts and scrapes.
Apply bandage roll directly to wound or use to secure first layer.
Bandage should be rolled on without tension. Do not apply with tension as excess constriction may result.
Begin by wrapping around body part and repeat.
Overlap previous area by one half;f to one-third of its width, and smooth after each turn.
Finished wrap should be firm but not so tight that there is discomfort. Start over and re-apply if it feels right or uncomfortable.
Apply tape to secure dressing.
