Splinters Remove a splinter with tape

When you get a splinter, reach for the scotch tape before resorting to tweezers or a needle. Scotch tape, duct tape, or shipping tape can pull out that splinter fast. Just put the tape over the area where the splinter is and pull off the tape.

Sounds good Comments By: anon on 2008-04-07
It sounds good and I probably did it wrong, but I tried it and it didn't work. I gave up pretty fast though.

I Tried The Tape But It Did Not Work.
I Put The Tape On And Pulled It Off Slowelly And It Did not Work So I Did It Again But Faster And It Still Did Not Work. The Tape Is A Good Idea Though.

I tried this with scotch tape, then duct tape. Soaking in hot water did work.
