TICK BE GONE A nurse discovered a safe/easy way to remove ticks, making it less traumatic for the patient and easier for you. Apply a small amount of liquid soap on a cotton ball Cover the tick with the soap soaked cotton ball Blot it for a few seconds ( 15-20 ) The tick will spontaneously detach and stick to the cotton as you remove it. Notify everyone! This may help so many, especially with those hard to reach areas. Keep liquid soap & cotton balls in your summer first aid kit.
