I was chopping onions and watching tv, and without looking i accidentally cut my wrist, how can I stop the bleeding? It won't stop
Press on the wound: For a cut in the kitchen, the wound is usually not very dirty. However, there still are germs. Immediately after the cut, one can use the hand soap by the sink to briefly wash the forearm, wrist, and hand that is injured. Then grab a clean cloth towel and cover the wound.
