Healthcare Product Review

Healthcare has been a popular topic in the news lately. Everyone has an opinion about who should pay for healthcare, what qualifies as healthcare, vaccines, abortions, etc. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed when you step back and take a look at all of the options, opinions, and sometimes facts. How do you know what’s best for you and your family? Today I’ll be bringing you a healthcare product review that is sure to ease your healthcare burden.

This morning, while I was preparing myself to face the day, I found a roll of tender tape under the bathroom sink. The roll is partially used, but still has plenty of tape left for an emergency. Tender tape is a flexible, self-adhesive fabric. It’s generally used for treating wounds, but you could probably use it for other things too. Tender tape is nice because it won’t stick to skin or hair. It’s strong and durable, but is easily cut with scissors. The tube at the center of this particular roll of tender tape looks like it is made from cardboard. It also claims to be latex free, which I’m sure is good for people who are allergic to latex.

This roll of tender tape is 2” wide with 20” of tape left on the roll. There are 40” if you stretch it. Tender tape is very stretchy. I also didn’t roll it up very well after I measured it, but I’m sure it’s still safe to use. The exterior diameter of the cardboard tube at the center of the roll is 1.125”. I’m not sure how much tender tape was on the roll when I bought it, but it was probably quite a lot. I don’t think I would have bought a small roll of tender tape. This roll of tender tape is also white. I probably bought it because it was the cheapest available.

Overall, I’d give this used roll of tender tape 7 out of 10 stars. It’s a useful item to have, but there isn’t too much left. I’m really glad I found this tender tape because I’m overdue for an injury. And remember, don’t stress too much about what you hear and read about healthcare; there’s a very good chance the solution to your problem could very well be under your bathroom sink.

  1. When I saw the picture related to this article on your homepage, I got excited because I thought this was going to be a review of toilet paper. My excitement quickly turned to disappointment as I discovered that it was about tender tape and not toilet paper. But I pushed through, forced myself to finish reading and I am glad I did because it actually turned out to be a pretty good review despite the fact that there was no mention of toilet paper.

      1. Oh wow, there are multiple types??? This is already fascinating and the piece hasn’t even been written.

        I know it doesn’t fall under the category of a “review”, but would you be able to compare/contrast the different types of toilet paper? It doesn’t have to be all of them, just whatever you have available. I think a lot of people would find it informative.
