"A bread poultice is a nice easy way to get thorns or glass out of a child's foot. Much better than fighting a screaming child with a needle. I never let anyone near me with a needle when I was a kid! Works best when you use Daddy's handkerchief, lots of love and words like "poor soldier, been in the wars, have you?""

"RonaNZ to the rescue! My daughter waited two days for me to come home from a business trip to take care of a splinter. She didn't trust dad's eyesight or his comforting skills, so she wasn't risking it. Remembering this recipe, we tried it together and it worked, despite the fact that the area around the splinter was a bit irritated. I'm still trying to figure out how it worked, but it did. Now, she and dad can take care of this in my absence. :)"
