1. Use Your T-Shirt for a Pressure Dressing
Applying pressure will usually stop bleeding – a clean T-shirt comes in handy for this. Place the shirt between your hand and the wound to help protect yourself and the bleeder from each other’s germs.
Here’s the best trick: If the bleeding stops with pressure but starts back when you release it, you can make a pressure dressing so you don’t have to keep holding the T-shirt on the wound. Just tape the shirt down firmly onto the wound and continue pressing the shirt’s bulk onto the injured area.
