    1. I pulled out a splinter this morning! The worst part was that it was on my right hand and my left-handed-tweezer-skills are not so great.

      1. I find it easier to use a (sanitized!) sewing needle to stretch the skin around the splinter a little and then stick the base, or as close to it, of the splinter with the needle to guide it out. If the splinter is really shallow, you can just insert the needle above it and flick the needle upward to make a little tear in the skin and fish out the splinter that way. Works for both hands ;)

          1. my grown daughter just taught me to dab some lepages old school glue, let dry, then peel off, voila, no more sliver and it works:)

  1. Forgot to mention the “OUCH!” factor and the streaming snot and tears that tend to go hand in hand… especially from particular body parts!
    However short and sweet, it truly is awesome.

  2. Even better- when it gets the nasty whitehead on top and you pop it and the ingrown hair comes out on it’s own with the pus. Yeahhhhhhhh so satisfying. A two-for-one!

    P.S. Oh god we’re down to the 200’s now! The end is near :(

  3. I remember the first time I did this when I was younger, and found it so fascinating.. All that you could see before tweezing was this tiny little hair and raised red bump.. but when it was tweezed out, the hair was so much longer! Totally freaky, but also super satisfying.

  4. Nothing better than sitting in a well lit spot, needle in hand and DIGGING up a curly that has been cultivating for months. The more blood, the sweeter the victory.

  5. Last night I was finally able to pull a ingrown hair on my neck that’s been festering for 2 weeks.

    When it came out. Talk about a full body orgasm.

  6. Just pulled a 2″ coiled ingrown hair out of my neck. Ingrown hairs are occasionally a problem, but never like this. It was one of those deals where you have to fish around with a pair of tweezers trying to find the ingrown hair just to pull it out.. and no luck. So a week goes by and finally I’m able to find this hair and pull it out with a set of tweezers. It was like I was pulling out stitches from a wound, it was bizarre and never before has this happened. I was relieved to say the least at finally removing the hair.

  7. A person essentially help to make seriously articles I would state. This is the very first time I frequented your web page and thus far? I surprised with the research you made to create this particular publish incredible. Wonderful job!
