How to Remove a Deep Splinter under the Fingernail?

Answer

Removing a deep splinter under the fingernail might take a few minutes, but it can be done. You will need to use warm water, small bowl and a tea spoon of baking soda. You would want to soak your finger for about 10 minutes then you would want to wash your hands with soap and water, so that it can dry. After your finger is dry clip where the splinter is like a V shape and then start to pull the skin back. Once you can see the splinter all you have to do is make sure that you grab the splinter with some tweezers and you are all set to go. This is a great way to remove a splinter that is deep in the nail. You can also use this method again if you happen to ever get another one.
