How to get rid of slivers easily
Slivers and splinters can be such a pain to get rid of. Your body will eventually push these out naturally on its own. I for one am not that patient and I know most of the kids I know are not either. Using things like tweezers or needles can just make it worse sometimes. However there is an easier way! Its simple easy painless and you even get a snack too.
What you will need
The first thing you need is a banana. the second thing you will need is some tape. The third thing you will need is a pair of scissors.
- eat the banana
- cut the peel into a small square the will cover your sliver or splinter
- before you go to bed take the small square of peel and tape over sliver
- wake up and your sliver is gone
When the banana peel is drying out it shrinks and shrivels and absorbs the sliver. A fun fact sometimes with a large sliver or splinter you can actually see it stuck in the peel the next morning. Also sometimes with larger splinters you may have to use this technique twice to get the sliver all the way out.
