Idea Exchange: Stop bleeding nails without a mess

To make applying styptic powder a simple and clean process, we place a small amount of cotton into the bottom of an extra sample tube and pour styptic powder on top. Then we slip the bleeding nail into the tube. The tubes can be sealed, which makes it easy to send styptic powder home with patients.
