Okay, this may seem really odd, but it worked. I read in a magazine awhile back that there is an enzyme in a banana peel that will draw out stubborn slivers. Soo...yesterday morning I stepped on something in the kitchen but couldn't find it in my foot but could feel something. So I cut part of the inside of a banana peel, placed it on a bandaid and put it on the spot where I felt something go in. I left it there all day and when I took it off and peeled off the leftover banana I could feel something right on the surface of my foot. Alas, it was a piece of glass that easily came out. How about that! Sure saves torturing your kids with needles and tweezers. Now I've never tried it on a "sliver" so I'm curious to see if it does work on that.
