Removing a stubborn splinter from your finger or foot is never fun, especially if it involves digging into your skin with a needle or tweezers. But if you use common household or food items around the house, you can remove splinters from your skin very easily and quite painlessly.
The next time you have a nasty run-in with old wooden furniture or your backyard fence, try a drop of Elmer's glue or a piece of duct tape to remove the splinter painlessly. Or use banana peels, eggshells, potato slices, or bread and milk.
For the tiny, nearly invisible splinters, the baking soda and water trick or the white vinegar technique seems to work well. Try Ichthammol ointment to remove stuck splinters and treat other skin conditions.
If you're having trouble grabbing on to the splinter, invest in a good pair of pointy-ended tweezers, perfect for splinter removal. Make sure to clean them each time you use them, though.
