Though, Claire precisely refers to Calpol, the method can likely be utilized in synch with any type of oral syringe used to dispense children's medicine, like Children's Motrin or Tylenol in the US.
In her post, Claire, who resides with her spouse Chris and two daughters Macie, eight, and Lilly-Mai, seven, in Leigh, said: 'Take the Calpol box and take out the syringe that comes with it!
'Be sure it's clean! You need to ascertain there is a little space before you begin (see picture for example).
'Put a little hole at the foot of the syringe as best you can over the splinter. Once you realize you are above it, be certain the syringe is in contact with the skin, then, you pull! Ascertain there is no space otherwise, you won't get it!
'The syringe will definitely pull it out in the first go! Pain-free, no yanking and pulling, and the kids are not upset or frightened at getting it out! Don't pull out gradually! You need to pull it out swiftly! If it's an obstinate splinter, just do this once or twice!
'It consumes little time, and puts a smile on the kids’ face at the end of it rather than sad faces and tears! Because the plastic is seen- through, you can assess what has been removed from the skin! Best parent hack to ever! Pass it on mums and dads!'
