THE first aid for wood splinters!!!
I haven't seen this stuff for 30 years, back when I was serving a wood working apprenticeship. The old journeymen I worked with turned me onto it after I once had a long splinter in my hand break off trying to pull it out. The stuff looked strange, smelled horrid, and seemed comically old timey - but two days after putting a dab on and covering with a band-aid the splinter was gone! You need this stuff if splinters, burs, thorns or stickers are ever a part of your life. Try it once and you'll be a convert.
