Got splinters? Don't reach for the tweezers - according to Wikimommy there's an easier way to get rid of those pesky ouchies. Just get some bananas:
Banana peels are said to be very effective in removing splinters. Simply tape a peel to your splinter, and leave on for 5-10 minutes. The enzymes will help dislodge the splinter and heal the wound.
Has anyone ever successfully done this? http://wikimommy.net/2011/06/07/banana-peels-bananas-choose/
