Tape works great w. Press n Seal wrap for covering surgical bandage while showering. Tried several others that wouldn't stay on in the shower.
Great service from Metro Medical- fast shipping and very helpful on exchanging an order I place incorrectly. Also best price on this item in the 2" x 6 tube.
