If the splinter is too deep to get with tweezers, use a poultice of equal parts of sugar, oil and grated Fels Naptha soap (1/8 tsp each or less). Put a small amount on the splinter, cover with bandaid. Be careful not to use too much or you'll never get the bandaid to stick. You can periodically check on the progress of the splinter and usually, by morning it is gone.
