Got a splinter? If you've also got an egg, your problem is easily solved. How-to illustrator Yumi Sakugawa discovered that splinters come out a bit easier with the help of eggshells.
How does it work? Just take a bit of eggshell (perhaps consider making some eggs so you don't waste any) and place it on your finger for a few minutes. It will stick to the splinter and then you can pull it out slowly by removing the eggshell.
If eggs aren't your thing, check out Yumi's info-comic for several more solutions.
