Mum, Claire Bullen-Jones, has shared a tip on Facebook to remove splinters painlessly.
Her Facebook post has since been shared more than 1000,000 times with 31,000 likes.
Claire explains, “Grab a syringe that comes with the Nurofen kids bottle, make sure it’s clean obviously!
You need to make sure there’s a little bit of a gap between the top of the syringe and the plunger before you start. Put the small hole at the bottom of the syringe as best you can over the splinter. Once you know you’re above it, make sure the syringe is touching the skin-and pull!
Make sure there’s no gaps otherwise you won’t get it! The syringe will more than likely pull it out in the first go! Pain free, no tugging and pulling, and no little ones upset or scared at getting it out! Don’t pull slowly! You need to pull rather quickly! If it’s a stubborn splinter, just do this a couple of times!
Saves so much time, and well worth seeing the kids smile at the end of it rather than red faces and tears! Because the plastic is clear, you can check what’s been taken out of the skin! Best parent hack to date! Pass it on mums and dads!”
