  • Fixing to be 6.5 hours a day 5 days a week. lol. Once I get my tattoo, it has to be covered at work and I am not wearing long sleeves in the summer.

  • A day. I'm hard on band-aids.

  • I've had the stretchy mesh ones survive past a shower depending on where they were, but I don't think more than 2 days.

  • Band aids don't last too long w/ me. But I did have to keep gauze w/ tape over a burn for quite a while. I still had to change that daily.

  • Maybe two days if it was on my shin. Most of the time they're on my hands and they last maybe five hand-washings, which may mean only 45 minutes, depending on what I'm doing.

  • An hour. Maybe two if I'm lucky. I typically only need them on my hands/fingers and since I'm always cleaning or washing something it seems.....Sometimes I don't know why I bother with them at all.

  • Till I can't stand the damp, sticky feel anymore--maybe a few hours at most.

  • 99% of the time if I need one, it's on my finger. Probably over night. I change ones i wear during the day probably every 4 hours. Not that I'm a health nut or anything, I just wash my hands and the get wet.
