​Mum Shares Clever Hack For Removing Splinters, Glass And Bee Venom

​Mum Shares Clever Hack For Removing Splinters, Glass And Bee Venom

A mum has shared a smart 'first aid hack' on Facebook, hoping that it will help others resolve pesky problems like splinters in what she says is a 'quick' and 'painless' way.

The woman, who lives in Australia, explained that she uses the syringe that comes in boxes of children's Nurofen to remove offending items - from splinters and fragments of glass right through to bee venom.

She wrote: "If you have ever bought Nurofen for kids before, you would know it comes with this little thing to measure/administer the liquid medicine."

She continued: "Simply place the outer tube hole over the wound site, press firmly against the skin, then pull the inside orange tube out really quickly.

"The vacuum in the tube should extract the offending item."

The creative mum claimed the suction from the 'magic' small tube is able to remove 'splinters, tiny shards of glass and bee sting venom in a quick, non-invasive, painless way'.

The internet sure is a helpful place sometimes - as we also learnt recently when someone else shared their helpful hack online, this time schooling us all in how to get the creases out of your trainers.

A Twitter user and YouTuber called Shantel De Bonsu tweeted: "Step 1: stuff your shoe with the socks/old clothes or tissue paper to the point where you can't see the crease anymore and when you press on the top of the shoe it doesn't move.

"Step 2: wet your small towel or cloth with hot water, then squeeze the water out so it's damp...

"Step 3: place your towel or cloth on top of the crease."

"Step 4: iron the towel or cloth with VIM but be sure to keep lifting the iron up or you'll burn your shoe! Depending how bad the crease is determines the time in which it will take to get rid of the crease!"

By the way, for those of you who don't know, VIM is a cleaning product.

Her post also raked in the likes and retweets, with many people commenting to say they'd tried out the nifty trick and it had worked wonderfully.
