A Genius Trick For Removing Splinters Without Pain

Claire Bullen-Jones recently shared a tip on Facebook, having used it to help her children get rid of splinters. The trick — which she says is pain-free, quick, and easy — involves using an empty syringe over the splinter and sucking the splinter right out. The syringe will more than likely pull the splinter out on the first try, but you need to pull the syringe back very quickly. If it’s a stubborn splinter, you may need to do it a couple of times, but the good news is that there’s no pain involved. It not only saves time, but because the plastic is clear, you can check what’s been taken out of the skin.
