Question from Reuben
I love your website and have been an avid reader for a year now. I was wondering if you could post a question for me. My question is about Band-Aids and medical items.
- How long do Band-Aids last past their expiration date?
- Will they stay sterile past their exp. date if unopened or does the plastic go bad or their individual package break down (as paper degrades over time)?
- How does expiration dates apply to items such as Hydrogen Peroxide, Benadine, Mercurochrome, Ointments, Alcohol?
Please help Reuben out by posting your advice and thoughts in the comments below…
