Although I've perfected the Polysporin/Band-Aid routine when I accidentally wound myself (which, unfortunately, is more often than not), the Graphene bandage seems like a great alternative. Developed by Chinese scientists, it is a carbon-based bandage that has built-in bacteria barriers.

Since infection is the main risk with cuts and scrapes, Graphene bandage would essentially prevent that from happening. Discovered back in 2004, its antibacterial properties were only recently stumbled upon. Stats for Carbon-Based Band-Aids Trending: Older & Chilly
