How do you draw out a splinter?

A person can remove a splinter using a needle and tweezers by:

  • pinching the splinter with the tweezers and pulling it out gently and slowly.

How do you bring a splinter to the surface?

SOAK IT IN EPSOM SALTS.

To get this to work, just dissolve a cup of the salts into a warm bath and soak whatever part of the body has the splinter. Failing that, you can also put some of the salts onto a bandage pad and leave it covered for a day; this will eventually help bring the splinter to the surface.
