Remove Cactus Needles?


Cactus needles can be removed from the skin in a variety of ways; the method used normally depends on how many cactus needles have become embedded, the size of the cactus needles, and how deeply they are embedded. Additionally, the size of the thorns may also dictate what method is used, because the thorns can do as much damage coming out as they did going in. Small cactus needles can be removed by using Elmer's Glue. Cover the affected area with 2 layers of the glue, allowing the glue to dry for 5 minutes or so between each layer. Peel the glue off the skin, and if you're lucky, the glue will remove the cactus needles as it is slowly removed from the skin.
