    In that case... Go to your room now or you will never get your bow back.

    That too bad. Sweep up the shavings or no supper.

    I've seen it used to stop bleeding too, packed into a poultice...
    We have a lot of puffballs out here. ( for those who also have periwinkle, it works to stop bleeding too.)

    I recently learned that there is a lot of Kaolin (white) clay in the "mountain" range just north of me. According to the Wiki article about the stuff, In April 2008, the US Naval Medical Research Center announced the successful use of a Kaolinite-derived aluminosilicate nanoparticle infusion in traditional gauze, known commercially as QuikClot Combat Gauze. I'm guessing that a fine powder scraped from or separated with water, dried and powdered and added to a dressing would be beneficial. or buy QuikClot...

    QuikClot has been around a lot longer than that. And I wouldn't add the raw powder to a wound either. There are a lot of other items contain in the rock like bacteria and viruses.
