This genius mom from the U.K. figured out the fastest way to get rid of a nasty splinter, and the best part is that there are no needles involved!
How did your parents remove scary splinters when you were younger? In most cases, it involved getting a needle or tweezers too close for comfort and often resulted in puddles of tears! To make it worse, it usually took a long time to try and grab hold of the splinter, making it even more stressful!
Thanks to this idea from Claire Bullen-Jones, it might not take any time at all! She placed the opening of the small syringe (she’s using a brand from Capol, but says that Ibuprofen usually has the same type of syringe!) over the splinter, leaving a little space between the hole and the plunger. Once it is over the splinter and pressed tightly onto the skin…
You need to pull rather quickly! If it’s a stubborn splinter, just do this a couple of times!” She wrote.
The hack took off and hundreds of thousands of parents were thankful!
It might be a little intimidating, but it is so much easier than trying to use a needle!
Because the plastic is clear, you can check what’s been taken out of the skin! Best parent hack to date! Pass it on mums and dads!”
Have you ever heard of this awesome hack?
