Remove Splinters & Other Uses for Elmer’s Glue

elmers glue uses

When my son needed a splinter removed but did not want me to remove it with tweezers or a needle. I came up with the brainstorm to try duct tape. The first two tries didn’t work. The third time I applied the tape and removed it and the splinter came out.elmers glue duct tape

Since then I read that Elmer’s glue helps remove splinters. Yesterday I got a splinter. I tried the Elmer’s glue and it worked. Pour a drop of Elmer’s glue all over the splinter, let dry, and peel the dried glue off the skin. The splinter sticks to the glue when you peel it off! See more Elmer’s Glue uses below.
