I actually got to use the maxi pad I added to my kit last week. A student working the in the ceramics studio cut her leg real good on the leg of a table. She had these little bitty band aids so I jumped in with some sterile wash, maxi pad, and good o'l duct tape. I also added super glue, aspirin, and rubber gloves to my kit. It's always on hand no matter where I go whether in my car or in my pack, school or woods. Thanks again.
