This super easy hack for painlessly removing Band-Aids is actually meant for kids. But any adult who’s ever had to rip one off a particularly hairy patch of skin, you’re also welcome.

“Want to take your baby’s bandaid off without tears and residue? I gotcha,” Z’Anni explains in the video. “All you need is petroleum jelly or oil and Q-tips.”
She then applies a thick coat of petroleum jelly to her bub’s Band-Aids and let it sit for a couple of minutes. The Band-Aids seems to soak up the jelly, before coming off without any effort.
