Sidney Raz is already well known on the app because of all the hacks that he is more than willing to provide. The hacks and tricks that he shares on the platform are awesome and this one is certainly no different. Now, he is here to tackle the Band-Aid-related issues that have plagued so many of us for so many years.

This is something that you would expect him to know about already since he spends so much time offering up tips and pointers in a more general sense. Even the smartest folks were confused about this one, though.

The hack is really simple as well. He demonstrates this by placing a Band-Aid on his skin and then ripping it off in an upward motion. It comes right off, without all of the fuss that would normally take place. “I didn’t even feel that happen,” he claims. Before long, other outlets decided to reach out to him to find out more about his trick.

“Pull up the Band-Aid,” he explains at the conclusion of the video. The comment section got in on the fun and they are claiming that the trick worked to perfection.

“I put a bandaid on my arm for this. Pulling it up a little to grab it hurt, but then I pulled and it was suddenly off. I am impressed,” said one viewer.
