- Get a small piece of bread. I used store-bought whole wheat bread, but any kind of bread should work.
- Put the bread on a band-aid, and tape it on the splinter.
- Let it set there overnight. (I put socks on Phoenix to help hold it in place.)
- In the morning, take off the band-aid, and you'll find the splinter on the piece of bread!
I know, it sounds completely crazy, but I was willing to give it a try... and you know what? It worked!!!
I'm not sure how or why, but the splinter was somehow drawn to the bread. When we took off the band-aid, it did take off the a tiny bit of the surface skin above the bread, but my son didn't seem to mind.
We'll never use tweezers to remove splinters again :)
So... did you try it? Did it work? Leave a comment - I'd love to hear from you! :)
