  • How to Wear

    Foot/Ankle:

    1. Start wrapping at ball of foot, continuing under foot from inside to outside.

    Step One

    2. Make 2 or 3 turns around foot moving towards ankle with each turn overlapping one-half of the previous layer. Begin a figure-eight turn bringing bandage up outside of foot, over instep and inside around ankle.

    Step Two

    3. Continue down inside of foot around heel, back up over instep, down under foot, and back up completely around ankle.

    Step Three

    4. Repeat figure-eight 2 or 3 times overlapping one-half of the previous layer and rising above the ankle.

    Step Four

    Care Instructions

    To Clean the Bandage: Unroll the bandage. Rinse the bandage in lukewarm water by hand. To prolong the life of the bandage's self-adhesive property, DO NOT use detergent or scrub the bandage. Dry the bandage by laying it out flat on a clean surface while separating those places where it is sticking together.

    DO NOT machine dry or iron the bandage. After the bandage has dried, re-roll it for future use. Because of the bandage's unique self-adhesive feature, it will stick to itself through several wearings. After this time, it is necessary to use a fresh bandage.

    NOTE: Washing will generally reduce the degree of self-adhesiveness.

Customer Reviews
ACE™ Brand Self-Adhering Bandage is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 225.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth it Worked for one day. Tried to put it on day 2 and it won’t stick. Wish I bought the tried and true one with the hooks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Self stick I bought this product to cover a cut so the bandage would stay clean. I was very impressed that even after washing the product it still stayed sticky
Date published: 2020-02-21
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not reusable I’m having no issue with adherence. In fact, after use, it curls to the point that when I remove it, it adheres to itself in the shape of a shoestring or Twizzler. This makes it unusable since it’s virtually impossible to flatten out, almost permanently stuck to itself. Any ideas on how to correct this to become useable again? For the cost, seems ridiculous for a one-time application.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from bought two of them but if re-adjusted, won't hold I bought two of the ace bandages 4 inch and wore each a day or so. Then I tried to re-adjust them for less swelling/ comfort, but they will not hold together anymore. What can I do? I thought they were just what I needed, but I guess not now.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn’t last I purchased this today at 2 pm and it will not stay stuck to itself at 8pm. I wasted my money on this. I had to use a safety pin to hold it together
