    Chef Chessie's Note:

    This is an easy, (mostly) painless way to get rid of anything sharp stuck into the top layers of your skin. My grandmother used it on my entire body when I fell in a cactus wearing a bikini! I probably don't have to say this but please don't eat this. I would not suggest this if you are very hairy or if you have open wounds.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (8 ounce) bottle glue (like Elmers White or School Glue)
    • bath soap
    • water


    1. 1
      Cover the affected area with a thin layer of Glue. You know you have the right amount when the coat looks slightly white and not clear. If it runs, it is too thick.
    2. 2
      Let glue dry on the hand you will be using on the following steps. (This helps you keep from transfering the splinter etc.).
    3. 3
      Wait for glue to dry until it no longer feels tacky.
    4. 4
      Peel off or gently rub to flake off.
    5. 5
      Wash area gently w/ Soap & Water.
    6. 6
      Pat Dry.
    7. 7
      Follow up with topical Benadryl or Calamine.

      Used instead of my preferred method of amputation.
