A week ago, I found a tick on my leg. Panic set in, I considered cutting off my leg, I googled what to do - "put Vaseline on", "nooo, don't put Vaseline on", "twist it out", "for goodness sake, whatever you do, don't twist it!". Confused? Me too.
I set off to minor injuries to be taught the correct procedure in tick removal (twist ant-clockwise using ineffective tweezers and a scalpel), came home and bought this product for the next tick related incident.
The Tick Twister arrived on Tuesday. Imagine my utter joy when I discovered a tick on my son that very night!
He was hysterical and shaking about having a small creature attached to his tummy, whilst I could barely contain my excitement at trying out my new toy.
We opted for the larger of the tools, slid it in the correct position for optimal tick removal, and slowly twisted.
Out popped the tick, the boy stopped crying, I satisfied a need to play with gadgets, everyone's a winner!
