Band Aids: The Quick Fix

My trashcan lid has been popping open randomly for about a week now. I tried to tape it closed using Scotch tape, but it wouldn’t stay stuck for some reason. I saw the box of Band Aids on my counter that I had pulled out for my earlier post, and decided to try using them to hold my trashcan lid closed and surprisingly the Band Aids held better than the tape. My theory is that the little plushy pad that breaks up the sticky arms is what makes the difference.
