I tried vinegar on my effect foot for about a week. I did notice improvement but the vinegar started to dry my foot out. So then I found in a home remedy book to use garlic. Garlic is a great antifungal antiseptic. There are several ways you can use the garlic to treat athlete's foot.
1. Crush a couple cloves into small pieces and add a small amount of rubbing alcohol and water; soak foot for at least a half hour.
2. Crush several cloves and add to olive oil for 2-3 days. Then rub the mixture all over foot. (I found this to work the best because the olive oil keeps the skin moist)
3. You can even try cutting a clove of garlic and placing the pieces directly onto the skin.

Also do not forget to keep shoes and socks clean by using lysol or bleach. If you forget this step the athlete's foot will never go away.

Lysol is full of toxic chemicals that will leach thru the skin. They will cause significant damage to your liver, or worse. Use something like vinagar or get rid of the infected footware.
