1. Tea Towel
A tea towel can be used to help stop a heavy bleed. If blood is flowing from a wound and it is too big or there is too much for a plaster, then it is bleeding heavily.
Put pressure on to the wound with whatever is available to stop or slow down the flow of blood. This will act as a ‘plug’ to stop the blood escaping. The pressure you apply will help the blood clot and stop the bleeding.
Remember to call 999 (or get someone else to call) and keep applying the pressure until help arrives.
