Healthy You! - Removing Splinters with Ease


So you find yourself with a nasty splinter and it’s embedded so far into your finger that your trusty tweezers can’t get it out. What do you do? Here’s a little trick that works.

Take an old pair of pantyhose and run it over the area where the splinter resides, the material will grab onto the splinter and gently pull it out.

Is the splinter too far into the skin that the pantyhose won’t grasp it? Take a banana and turn it to the mushy side of the peel, rub the contents onto the splinter site, wrap it up with a band-aid and leave overnight. The enzymes in the Banana will draw the splinter to the surface for easy removal!
