Of course, these are used in combination with gauze tape or other gauze bandages to keep them in place. You can also use the squares to clean a wound using rubbing alcohol, hydrogen peroxide or warm water and soap. These devices are also useful in prepping a procedure area through the use of rubbing alcohol in combination with the cotton wipe.
What Are the Dimensions of Dynarex Gauze Sponges?
While there are a variety of sizes for you to choose from, this particular product has a dimension of four square inches.
