Caplol syringe life hack for removing splinters: have you tried it and does it work?


We’ve just been reading about this brilliant life hack for removing splinters from kids. 

The gist of it is: you take a syringe (the ones that come with a bottle of Calpol or Nurofen) and place it, so the small hole of the syringe is directly over the splinter. Then, you pull the syringe open (while it’s pressed over the splinter) to create a vacuum and hopefully it’ll suck the splinter right out (repeat until it’s sucked out).

We’d love to know have you heard of this life hack, and even more so, have you tried it? We would absolutely love to hear if this has worked for you - please do let us know by posting a comment below! Sounds genius!
