I recently discovered that the Safeway brand of waterproof bandages are not waterproof. The Water Protection Adhesive Bandages that are advertised on the box as ideal protection for swimming, showering and washing the dishes don’t do any of that well. In the box of 30, one inch bandages I didn’t have one make it through a shower let alone swimming. I emailed their customer service and was told I could return them for a refund with my receipt. I suppose I have the receipt some where but I had already used 25 of the 30 bandages. You go through them rather quickly when they fall off after getting wet.
I emailed them back and suggested that they look to their manufacturer for the product since there could be a quality control issue. I am obviously not going to buy another box to determine if this box was a fluke. I guess this is another slap in the face to the generic brands. Sometimes they actually do perform well and others they fall off when wet. So buyer beware, if you want a bandaid (copyrighted name of bandage) that is waterproof, DON’T BUY THE SAFEWAY BRAND.
Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't whether I got it free or NOT!
