When carrying out DIY home improvements you or a family member may be cut, burned or suffer other injuries. If you have the basic first aid kit you will be better prepared to help your loved ones when if they are hurt.
Knowing how to treat minor injuries can make a difference in an emergency. You may also consider taking a first aid class, but simply having the following things can help you stop bleeding, prevent infection and assist in decontamination.
Include the following in your first-aid kits:
adhesive bandages in several sizes
antiseptic solution (hydrogen peroxide)
disposable instant cold packs
alcohol wipes or ethyl alcohol
plastic gloves (at least 2 pairs)
flashlight and extra batteries
mouthpiece for administering CPR
