This Technique Works Best On Splinters Under the Skin
If you have ever gotten a sliver of glass or a thorn in your foot it can be painful. I had a sliver of metal in the heel of my foot for years. I picked at that metal slither several times and never did get it out until I tried this technique.
You will need:
- Baking Soda
- Bandage Bandaid
Do not pinch or squeeze a thorn or glass slither when you first inspect your foot.
Steps to Remove Splinter
Clean and sterilize your foot with alcohol.
Sterilize tweezers and needle.
Use needle to pick and pry the skin from splinter to expose the splinter. Skip this step if you just got a splinter.
Once splinter is exposed. Mix a little mixture of baking soda and water. Mix it thick so its pasty.
Apply your paste mixture to the area where the thorn is exposed.
Apply bandaid or bandage to exposed area over paste mixture.
Wait 24 hours then remove the bandage. Try not to step on that area of your foot.
The splinter or slither of glass should have come up out of the skin.
Use the tweezers to gently pull splinters out.
