Pull it off, with a tissue or something - do it quickly so the tick doesn' t get a chance to hold on tight, and then check to make sure the head came with the body - if not, watch carefully cos if the head stays behind it MIGHT set up an infection.

Vaseline won' t do anything except make it slippery!
