Who knew? If emergency occurs... While the blood is gushing - hold pressure and crack open an egg. Peel that membrane off and put it on the wound (continue holding pressure) The membrane will harden and keep the wound closed until you can get to the ER for stitches. My grandma taught my mom this and it works! Crack Open, Remember This, Wounds Continuous, Wounds Close, Head Open, Emergency Occurances, Holding Pressure, Continuous Holding, Who Knew

Cut yourself while preparing dinner? No need to rummage for a band-aid. Just crack open an egg, peel off some membrane and wrap it around your cut. Not only will it harden and stop the blood flow, it will keep out bacteria while letting in air to allow the wound to heal.// works great! Cbrown
If you have an emergency where blood is gushing from a wound, hold pressure and crack open an egg. Peel the membrane off and put it on the wound, while continuing to hold pressure. The membrane will harden and keep the wound closed until you can get to the ER for stitches. - Wow!
