HELP HEAL A BLIS­TER WITH GAFFER TAPE

SPE­CIALISED blis­ter plas­ters can cost £5 for a pack of six. Take a tip from hik­ers and long-dis­tance run­ners, who use gaffer tape. ide­ally, ap­ply the tape at the first sign of a blis­ter, stick­ing it down as smoothly as pos­si­ble. if the blis­ter has al­ready formed, pro­tect the area from the gaffer-tape glue by cut­ting a cir­cle of pa­per or gauze large enough to cover it, and at­tach it to the cen­tre of the tape be­fore ap­ply­ing.
