[YEA] 05/11/2009: David from New York, New York writes: "Used a banana peel/acv "one two" combo with duct tape for a wart. Here's the story. I've had a wart on my forehead for maybe a year and a half. In the beginning i just thought it was a pimple i couldn't get rid of. And because it grew so slowly i was adjusting psychologically to its presence and not doing anything, but finally, i'm like, it's huge and ugly, it's on my forehead, it's a WART, and i'm getting rid of it, somehow. Didn't want to spend a lot of money, so went on the net, found you guys. I went with the ripe banana peel inverted, pressed and sealed over the wart with duct type. I'd rub the peel liberally on it first. Did that for a night and a day, not removing the duct tape except once to put in a new peel. Then browsing around on your site, got curious about apple cider vinegar as cure-all ingestant, so went and out got that (along with some OP sesame oil just for giggles). So then, changing the banana dressing, knowing that ACV was the other popular wart cure and that i had some right in front of me, i took a q-tip, dipped it in the ACV, then jammed it at the wart, for a few minutes (By the way, I wasn't positive that the peel had done much by this point but thought not to judge from the short amount of time). Felt a nice burn, which i enjoyed. If there's pain, there's death. Cause the thing's gotta die, right? But anyway... Then i rubbed a new banana peel on it, and put the duct tape on, and went to bed. Next morning, i noticed the thing was irritated, red and uglier than usual. I put another banana peel with duct tape on. In the afternoon, i'm like, "you know... i liked that BURN from the ACV. Let's do that now." So i repeated my q-tip ACV application for a few minutes. Then i dipped another q-tip in the ACV, this time cut the end of it with scissors, cut it small enough for it to just cover the wart area, placed it on the wart and duct taped it over. Going to bed, vigorously rubbed banana peel on wart, then duct taped wart over ACV'd q-tip (no peel). Waking up, I did banana peel. [SORRY THIS IS BORING BUT IT'S ALMOST OVER]. Evening, I looked at thing, it had shrunk, was red and black. Decided to hit it with ACV. Tested it with my fingernail to see if there was any dead stuff to slough off, and then the thing started bleeding, slowly but non-stop. So for like a half-hour, i q-tipped it with ACV until it stopped bleeding, then duct taped it over another ACV'd cut q-tip for the night. I'd planned to see some friends, but not happening! Next morning (yesterday, actually), I looked at it, knew I'd won. It was black and laying flat just below surface skin level, like a mesa, unlike the protrusive mass it was before. Pressing on it, I felt a soreness, but in the healthy normal skin encasing it, not the wart itself. It was dead. I decided to just slap some duct tape on it without anything for the rest of the day and night. Now it's today, the next day, and I've removed the duct tape, so the area will dry out and hopefully the wart will fall out, no reason why it shouldn't, it's not living after all! heheh :)
Some thoughts: Obviously, i just followed my whims with this treatment, using what i read here as a guide. The banana peel definitely had a less aggressive feel. Don't know if it would have worked on its own. One thing I notice is that the immediately surrounding skin looks great. Really pink, plump and healthy. Maybe there's a facial in it for the girls out there (and boys ;p)
Finally: The site is very cool. Thanks a lot to you people for making it happen. One problem or question: People here really seem to be into "oil-pulling". I'm now in the process of trying it from having visited here. Thing is, i've looked all over the web including on this site to find any rational explanation of how it works, and have just drawn blanks from my perspective. How does it detoxify? HOW? All you see written is that it "pulls" toxins out. Okay, how does "that" work? Or that a doctor from India told some Ukrainian doctors that it works and if they don't believe him, try it for themselves. I understand fasting for detox. Makes perfect sense: Body gets overloaded with toxins, can't process them out of the system, meaning they stay in. Stop food intake, body gets a break to process out the toxins. But "oil-pulling"? Well, i'm trying it, but without a better explanation i'm skeptical it's not just placebo. Would be interested in anyone's thoughts on the subject."
07/23/2009: Kathy from Reading, Berkshire, UK replies: "I have read the remedy for banana peel with interest, my 10 year old daughter had one recently removed from her thumb using Bazooka, but two have now appeared on her face, one on her lower lip a nasty tiny cauliflower devil about the size of a pea, and the other just below her eye. At first we thought it was a calcium spot but it has grown slightly and the GP confirmed they were different types of wart. She bravely agreed to have them frozen, but when the time came, she just couldn't bring herself to keep still and we agreed it would be too dangerous to continue. Does anyone have any advice on how to apply the banana peel to these facial warts? I suppose I could duct tape them on at night, but any other suggestions would be most helpful. Many thanks"
07/23/2009: Alex from Boston, MA replies: "I am replying to Kathy from Reading, Berkshire's posting. For wart problems, consider trying Manuka honey, Manuka oil or a mixture of Manuka honey and turmeric. Just put it over the wart and cover it with a bandage. I have personally had great results using Manuka honey and recommend it to anyone. I had warts on my hands for which I used a number of different remedies in addition to freezing and other over the counter medications, I used vinegar, copper pennies soaked in vinegar, banana peel, a variety of oils (clove, tea tree, etc) vitamin E, etc. Nothing really worked until I tried Manuka. I believe that these microorganisms that cause warts and other skin conditions adapt/mutate, and that is why many remedies work well for some and not at all for others, the little creature become somewhat unique to that person's body. While I am not sure if this will work for everyone, I really think that it is worth a try. The treatment is painless and you can find Manuka at most grocery stores."
07/24/2009: Tricia from Ireland replies: "many years ago while studiying reflexology I managed to contract a wart on the bag area under my eye. At tht time the only over the counter remedies were based on salicylic acds which seemed to strong for such a delicate area. The course tutor told me to use clear nail polish on it to stop it from getting contact with oxygen. Well it worked. I put it on morning and evening and the wart completely dissappeared in about 3 days. He explained that all warts need oxygen to survive and if they are deprived they will die off. The sooner it is treated the less time needed on the remedy. BTW this won't work on verrucae cos they get their oxygen fron a blood vessel in the skin hence the red dot in the middle of them."
12/29/2009: Marie from South Bend, In replies: "I recently grew a filiform wart on my face right below my lip. I found information on the internet about using iodine on warts. since I take lugols solution(iodine/iodide) I started applying the lugols to the wart. within a week a large portion of the wart fell off. It took about 4 weeks for the whole thing to dissappear, but the iodine worked. From everything I have read and from my alternative doc, warts on the face should not be frozen."
[YEA] 07/17/2008: Erin from Cconcord, NC writes: "Just wanted to let you know that I have tried everything to get rid of a painful plantars wart that was on the bottom of my foot. I tried duct tape, ate tons of bananas, tried every OTC thing possible, even Tagament. I could hardly walk because the foot would hurt so bad. It would be red and painful by the end of the day. Finally tried aloe vera gel. I put it on one night and within two days, I noticed it did not hurt as bad. About a week later, I noticed I could walk without any pain and the wart had turned black. Almost two weeks later, the wart had dried up and I was able to take a pair of tweezers and pull it completely out. The wart is gone and my foot feels and looks normal except a little dry rough spot where the wart was, a small crater like hole where the wart was that is closing in. I am so happy and relieved as I had the wart for about four months."

[YEA] 01/19/2010: Pacheco Family from Sedona, Az writes: "Apple Cider Vinegar for Warts
My son developed a wart on his foot that was starting to hurt him. As I work in an integrative health library I saw that ACV worked to kill the wart. I would prop him up in bed and soak the wart in ACV for 30 minutes. I would then attach a cottonball soaked in ACV to his foot with duct tape, put a sock over it an have him sleep with it on. Removing int in the morning and placing a band-aid on it for the day to keep clean. I did this every night for 3 days and saw a HUGE improvement. We were able to clean it out and even remove the dead skin. Within the week the wart was dead and not there is only a small mark where it used to be. AMAZING!! He was even surprised :)"
[YEA] 12/12/2009: Marcel from Encinitas, California writes: "i started using acv 3 days ago for a big wart on my finger tip and it hurts soooooo bad all the time. I have another big wart on my foot and it doesnt really hurt at all and its slowly turning brown. The wart on my finger tip is almost black though and its crusty and cracking but man does it hurt bad!! But its working for me. Finally found a cure after 2 years!"
[YEA] 12/06/2009: Laura from Cape Cod, Ma writes: "Warts on hands and feet
Found this remedy on your site and tried it on myself and my son. It really worked! Soak a cotton ball with Apple Cider Vinegar; tape or secure it on the wart for as long as you can. We used a tip of a disposable rubber glove to hold onto finger and toe. Did this while reading or watching a movie. Repeat every day for as long as you can until you start to see black spots on the wart. We then used a clean razor to cut away some of the dead skin and then soaked again for a few more days. At this point the wart came up and off on its own. stubborn warts may need to have this repeated. You can even see the "roots" dying off too. Great way to naturally and painlessly remove warts. Thanks for the advice."
[YEA] 11/19/2009: Pati from Edison, New Jersey, Usa writes: "Hi,
My mom had had warts on her feet since i was a kid 30 plus years ago! She had surgery in 1989 unsucssessful they came back. They wereren't so bad until they had a bad outbreak in 2004 and progressively got worse till this year. In the last 1 and a half years she couldn't walk and at some points was bed ridden and couldn't work. She saw many different doctors but nothing was helping. She had the Nitrogen spray, but this was temporary effective, and it led to bleeding, and scarring of tissue. The nitrogen started getting expensive at like $200 per session spray per feet and this needed twice a month = $800. Expensive even by USA standards. My mom is in Kenya Africa where that kind of money is expensive.
Needless to say we were helpless and I started Googling around, wikipedia, and all Medical websites. I even asked American doctors and Nurses, as well as read medical books on diseases. And almost every cure they recommended, my mom had tried with no luck.
I stumbled upon 2 treatments . 1)Duct tape and 2)Apple cider Vinegar.
I asked my mom to try it. She did so with the ACV and she would soak a ball of cotton with the vinegar, and tape it to her feet, and change it after some time. She did this for 3 weeks and within that time my dad reported to me that the warts were drying up and peeling off! The warts which had made it unbearable for her to stand were reduced so much to the point that she has now been walking for almost 3 months!
There's a very few ones left but she is continuing with the treatment and in due time! I will ask her to supplement it with the Banana peel method which i see got very good reviews!
VISITORS to this site, Apple Cider Vinegar really works! Good luck everyone and thanks all for sharing!
ps:I am recommending ACV to my brother for his eczema. He has it bad! I will let all know of the results in the eczema section!"
[YEA] 08/05/2009: Iahawkeyegal from Iowa, Iowa writes: "I have had a plantar wart for about two years on the ball of my foot. It didn't bother me most of the time, but about once a week it would get irritated and I would have to cut the skin over the wart off. I thought it was a callous for the longest time and continued with the treatment until I became annoyed.
My wart was about the size of a nickel on the bottom of my foot (at least that's how big of an area the dead skin appeared). My wart really just looked like a callous of dead skin that wouldn't go away. After I trimmed away the dead skin, I could see little brown/red specks. (I have never seen a deep root that others talk of). Originally I thought that I was cutting too much skin away and didn't think much about it, but decided I had better ask my doctor as I didn't want to take a chance on having it get infected at some point.
I asked my general doctor about it at a routine visit, and she told me that it was a plantar wart and to try over the counter wart remover. I tried it and it did little to remove the stubborn wart. I purchased the freezing kit and tried it with no luck, and also tried the polish stuff that you painted on the wart with no luck.
I went to a foot doctor and she wanted to dig the wart out. I'm not one who is a fan of pain, so I declined to give it more thought and to do some additional research on my options.
I came across this site, and began the ACV treatment. Here is what I did:
1)Cut old skin off using clippers sanitized in alcohol (not sure if I should recommend this due to the possibility of infection, but these are the steps as I followed them)
2)Put regular ACV on cotton ball (I soaked it so it was dripping wet) and applied over the wart
3)Covered ACV cotton ball and wart with duct tape so it was completely covered and unable to leak
4)Kept covered all day and all night (changing at least once a day and sometimes twice if the duct tape was coming off
I did experience some pain %uFFFD so much I couldn't stand it at times. When it became too much for me to walk, I would remove the ACV and just cover the wart with duct tape. I did not let my wart air dry very often. I pretty much kept it covered all of the time.
Eventually I just covered with duct tape all day/all night to ensure the wart was gone. I would add an ACV cotton ball covered in duct tape at night for a few weeks after I thought I had gotten rid of the wart to be sure.
I never did have long carrot like black things come out with the tape. Additionally, my wart didn't turn completely black. There were parts of the wart that would turn a brown color, but certainly the whole area did not turn black and fall off for me. I did experience the duct tape taking layers of old skin along with it when it was removed. It appears the duct tape killed some of the skin around the wart as well. It took a lot of time and patience for this to work for me, but I am happy to say I don't seem to have any problems to date.
This treatment seemed to work for me and I would recommend it to others. If the pain gets to be too much with the ACV - just cover with duct tape. It's very sticky so it stays in place if you are running/sweating and it is waterproof so it keeps the ACV from leaking out."
[YEA] 07/30/2009: John from Voorhees, NJ writes: "Hello everyone!
Im an athlete, and many athletes like me, have an uphill battle with warts. I tried everything, freezings, burnings, creams, surgery, etc. But nothing worked, they either returned, or spread.
Then i tried Apple Cider Vinegar. Used a cotton swab tip and a bandage. 3 Weeks. Gone. The wart disappeared. The outer edge turned white. Then the inner black. It hurt like hell at night, itched like crazy, and was a bit of a pain to change bandages. But was nothing compared to alot of diseases. So i not saying i had it bad.
But, thank god for apple cider vinegar. Worked perfectly."
07/20/2009: j b from Pushmataha, OK writes: "First I have many flat warts on my face. I am wondering if I "wash" my face in ACV maybe 3-4 times a day would that work? I would like to try this method but work in the public eye, so if I put it on my face, would my whole face turn black, or just the small wart spots? And do I need to use organic ACV or just plain ole grocery store kind? Please help thank you!"
[YEA] 07/15/2009: Victoria from San Diego, CA writes: "My husband recently got a wart on his hand. After reading this site, I read some of the testimonials to him and he decided to try the ACV on it. He put it on topically at night with cotton ball and tape. Within 2 days it had shrunk substantially and changed color. Within a week it turned black and fell off.
My husband has skin cancer on his face. He suddenly got this strange looking giant fleshy growth on his head right above the ear. I can't tell if it is a wart or a mole as it looks unlike any I've ever seen and the color was an odd shade of orangey-beige-brown. Anyhow, he started putting the ACV on it and it began to shrink rather dramatically...then he had some terrible pain on the top of the ear where the ACV poultice was touching and I looked back there and noticed a bunch of skin turning black and healing...so we know that something was wrong there too and is healing from the ACV. He said the pain was particulary acute on this part and is sending shooting pains down the nerves. Anyhow, ACV has another believer in my husband ( I already had been using it on my skin with good results.)
Next he is going to try it on his skin cancer."
[YEA] 07/12/2009: Sallie from Albuquerque, NM, USA writes: "ACV cured my planters warts. After spending $900 on seeing the dermatologist for a year and having him freeze my planter's warts on one heel over and over again, I found this web site. I tried the ACV treatment (organic brand) on the gauze part of a bandaid once in the morning and once at night. I wore the bandaid all the time. They were gone in three weeks. The dr. didn't believe it. His loss."
[YEA] 06/24/2009: Laura from El Paso, TX writes: "My daughter had a wart on her wrist for close to one year. I came across this site and tried ACV on a cottonball w/ bandaid for two nights. The wart started to blacken after the first night's treatment, but the area that the cottonball soaked in ACV had been on was red, itchy, and scaley. I told my daughter to try to deal with it because the desired result was being achieved. The second night I put a layer of petroleum jelly around the wart to keep the ACV from irritating her skin. It worked a bit but it was already irritated so it didn't seem to give her much relief. She was certainly happy when the wart fell off and we could discontinue ACV altogether."
[YEA] 06/17/2009: Sally from Portland, Oregon writes: "i have been dealing with a wart on the top of my foot for several years. 3+. it would almost go away, then come back. a week ago i decided to try the acv treatment (it's summer and i don't want this unsightly wart on my foot!)
here's what i did. took a cotton ball, soaked it in acv, put the cotton ball on top of the wart, covered it with a bandaid, then covered the band aid with duct tape, left this on for 10+ hours, removed, let the wart breathe for a few hours and then do it all over again. i've been doing this for almost a week and i am now wart free! with in the first day or two the wart turned black and the size of it was reduced, and then tonight i was picking at it and the black scaby thing just fell off and no more wart!
thank you so much everyone who has posted their remedies and comments here! it is soo helpful! i am a firm believer in the healing powers of ACV! it truly works!"
[QUESTION] 05/31/2009: Robin from Macomb, Michigan writes: "question about removing tattoo naturally: I have an old tattoo on my arm and was wondering if ACV would remove it since it works on moles i was wondering if anyone has tried it or if theres anything else i can try? Thanks!"
EC: We don't have a tattoo removal page, so your question is going on the mole removal page for now! If this topic proves to be a popular subject, will add a new page.
[YEA] 05/31/2009: Holly from Chicago Suburbs, IL USA writes: "I had a plantar wart on the bottom of my heel for many years (at least 7-8 years). I used OTC treatments that would seem to work at first, but would never completely get rid of it and it would just grow back.
Years later during a doctor appointment I brought it up, hoping to get it treated once and for all. It was a new doctor for me, and I was shocked when she actually gave me a home remedy to try instead (yea doctor!) - duct tape (plus pumice stone to remove dead skin). She said it would take months, but would suffocate the wart (or something like that). Instead it seemed to kill some skin around it. One time I removed the tape months into the treatment, and it tore into the skin around the wart instead...yet I still saw a small white ball intact in that deeper layer of the skin (surely the wart). I gave up on that home remedy.
A couple years later at another doctor appointment (late last year), I brought it up again with a different doctor (HMOs, sigh). First she tried the freezing treatment, but after 3 visits it barely phased the wart (if at all). Since it's an HMO, I had to wait for a referral to a dermatologist after that (it took about 2 weeks to finally get it).
During that waiting time, I finally discovered the ACV REMEDY on this site, so I never went to the derm at all. I was seeing FAST results in the first week, so I had much hope. Most of it was gone within 2 weeks, but for months after I went back and forth with treatment never knowing whether it was all gone. I think the plantar warts grow deeper than other warts and are probably harder to get rid of. I came to the conclusion that as long as I can still see any specks of skin darkening (black/brown/dark red) where the wart was during my treatment, then it is still there. Keep treating it.
MY TREATMENT DETAILS:
I want to note that I DID use the grocery store ACV. That is generally not recommended for ACV remedies. In my opinion, ACV taken internally should definitely be with "the mother", but maybe not necessarily for external remedies (or at least for warts) if you can't easily get an organic brand with the mother.
I used cotton from a Q-tip (that was enough to cover my wart), dipped it in ACV, and covered it with a couple band-aids (like an "X", to prevent ACV from leaking outside the band-aid). I would usually do this around bedtime and remove it in the morning. I have also done it during the day if I missed a treatment, but it's probably better (or at least easier) to do when you won't be on your feet a lot, plus you can make use of the hours of down time while sleeping. In the early stages, I could feel a little pain sometimes, but it would never seem to last long or be that noticeable. Overall, no real problem with that. When the wart turns dark (black/brown/dark red), that is a good sign.
Eventually the dead skin has to be removed/scraped. Sometimes it comes off easily, but it becomes more challenging if you have to keep going deeper. Pumice stone would probably be safest, but it seems hard to keep clean. I used a less safe method, which was to scrape with the side of an exacto razor blade (cleaned with rubbing alcohol). It worked well, but it is sharp, and I can't say I never ended up with a cut or two no matter how careful I tried to be.
It was hard to tell when the wart was completely gone. When I could not see the ACV having anymore effect on the skin during treatments, especially when there were no more specks becoming darkened, that's when I believed it was really gone. I am monitoring just in case, and will retreat if needed. So far so good after a few weeks.
Either way, I definitely accept this as a very effective, safe, and cheap wart remedy!"
[BETTER BUT WITH SIDE EFFECTS] 05/24/2009: Kat from Washington DC writes: "I am treating my flat hand warts (on the back of my hand) with ACV. The ACV seems to be working. The warts turned into a scab, and in about 1.5 weeks 2 of the scabs have fallen off and left pink skin. My concern is that when I would remove the bandages in the morning, I would find that I had new warts (where the adhesive portion of the bandaid had been). It seems that the warts are contagious when they are being treated. Is there any way I can treat the warts without causing new ones to pop up? Has anyone had this problem, and how did you resolve it?"
08/31/2009: Carly from Auckland, Nz replies: "The warts can be very contagious in general. If you have damaged skin it is more susceptible to the HPV virus that causes warts. Perhaps the damaged skin caused by the bandaid's adhesive is becoming infected. I'm not sure how to help sorry...perhaps you could try treating a larger area around the warts to help prevent the spreading."
09/19/2009: Lee from Tampa, Fl replies: "The same thing happened to me when I treated two small flat warts on my nose and hand. The ACV aggravates them and I think the bandage spreads them in the local area. It works, but then the open sores make it very very easy to spread to other parts as well have a few popping up in other spots despite insane hand washing and disinfecting of towels, tub, shower, etc). I quit the ACV and switched to witch hazel, just applied with a cotton ball and let to dry no bandage). This method isn't nearly as dramatic, but it does slowly decrease the size of the little buggers, without craters or open wounds. I'm still healing from the ACV craters (after a week), and seeing significant decrease in the witch hazel treated ones daily. If you have flat warts, try witch hazel first!!!! I wish I had."
[YEA] 05/19/2009: John from San Marcos, California writes: "I read the accounts of ACV curing warts and decided to try it. Previously I had tried different treatments but they actually would reduce the wart but then it would grow back even larger. Anyway I started soaking a small piece of cotton in ACV and placing this like a poultice over the wart and then place a bandaid on top to hold it. I would change this for a new application every 12 hours. Within a couple of days the wart started to turn whitish and then black. After about 4 days about half of the wart was black and simply peeled off when I removed the bandaid one evening. I continued with the same results. The wart had originally been about 3/16" to 1/8" above the level of my skin. Now, if there is any of it left, it is flush with the surrounding skin. There was no pain during this whole process except for some minor irritation during the second or third day. All in all this seems to be a safe, effective method for dealing with warts.
I started on 05/09/09 so the whole process (for me) took about 10 days. Hope this helps."

I tried banana peels (fresh and frozen), aspirin, duct tape, garlic oil, garlic juice, sliced garlic, potato peels and oregano oil...none of them worked. The ACV got rid of the wart on top of the skin in 3 days. Then I let the scab heal and applied ACV for another 3 days to get rid of the portion under the skin (it was a pretty large wart). Just saturated a little piece of cotton ball with ACV and used a band-aid to hold it on the wart and changed it morning and night. I'm so pleased! I read about the ACV on this website. Thanks everybody!!!"
07/19/2009: Sharon from Brick, New Jersey replies: "I would like to email someone who submitted their experience with ACV. My daughters wart has been under her right nostril probably almost a year now. Thought it was a pimple at first, doesn't seem to bother her but now believe it is a wart. Her Bat Mitzvah is in 4 weeks and would love to try and get rid of it. She is concerned about the blackening and possible irritation to surrounding skin. This one person whom I'd like to correspond with had a wart on their forehead and got rid of it in 4 days. They just didn't put much detail on their testimony except that they used ACV. Thanks"
07/19/2009: Alex from Boston, MA replies: "Hello, I am replying to Sharon from Brick, New Jersey's posting. For warts, I have had tremendous success with Manuka honey as well as manuka oil. Just apply it topically and you will see results in a couple of days. I have suffered from warts on my hands for which I tried many, many treatments, from burning them off with over the counter medications to the banana peel to tea tree oil, apple cider vinegar, copper pennies, etc. Nothing worked until I tried manuka. I believe that there are different strands of microorganisms that cause the warts and that may be the reason why some things very work well for some people and not for others, but I really think that manuka is worth a try."

Only little, and it didn't cause her any discomfort, but she is now at that age when these things are starting to bother her. I didn't want to go down the route of chemicle "cures" from the Chemist, so one evening I soaked a tiny piece of cotton wool with neat Raw Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, and placed it over her finger and stuck a couple of waterproof plasters on it. After 2 days the plaster came off whilst she was at dance class. First thing I noticed was that the wart had gone from a little whiteish lump, to a flat black spot. As we had run out of water proof plasters (and they did make writing difficult for her) we decided to leave it as is was until school breaks up for Whitson. However last night theh little black spot detached it self from her finger, leaving behind a lovely fresh pink finger, as far as wer can see.... no wart!"

[YEA] 02/20/2009: Bethany from Westminster, CA writes: "my 8 year old cousin had 3 planters warts on the bottom of his feet, they got medicine, and razors to cut off the top part of the wart from the doctor for it but it was not working. I told them about pure raw unfiltered organic apple cider vinigar, and after 3 days of applying it 2 or 3 times a day and not washing it off, the warts fell off. We still apply the vinigar as a precaution and only for a few days after they fell off. Good luck this worked fast, and was painless!"
[YEA] 02/20/2009: Barb from Plainfield, IL writes: "Yes the ACV treatment for curing warts worked! At night, I covered the wart with a piece of cotton ball I soaked with ACV then a bandaid. After a while it does burn, so I took a couple of nights off and just kept the wart covered with a bandaid during the day. Within 2 weeks the wart turned black, and with a little help from the tweezer was gone. There is no trace of the wart at all. I am a firm believer in ACV."
[YEA] 02/08/2009: Daniel from Morgantown, WV writes: "I have suffered from and unusual case of warts on my face and fingers. I have tried almost everything, including going to the dermatologists at least six times to have them frozen, but they always came back. It took a long time, but the apple cider vinegar remedy definitely worked, and I finally have them under control know. If one starts to show up I can just nip it in the bud. I am so grateful that I found this cure, and I found it on this website. Thanks a lot, and I hope many more people will benefit from trying this."
