10 Comments for the Toenail Fungus Home Remedy


I have had the fungus for 20 years and after trying many different methods (including prescription drugs) I have finally beaten it!
* Discipline is key. Do your treatment every night. If you do miss a day or two, be sure to get back into the routine as soon as possible. My big toe nails were completely infected top to bottom and this process has taken a whole year to complete.
* Get an emery board and use it to reduce the thickness of the nail. File it down as thin as possible. Work on it every night before you soak until you get it nice and thin. I never saw real results until I added this to my routine.
* Soak your toes in one part vinegar, one part hot water every night. Once you've soaked a little, use the file on your nail clipper to dig that gross yellow junk out from under your nail in the areas where the nail has separated from the nail bed. Soak for 20 or 30 minutes every night and dry thoroughly.
* Apply 100% tea tree oil to the nail every morning after you have showered and dried your feet. Apply both to the outer and the inner part of the nail if you can reach it. My nails separated from the nail bed because of the fungus so applying to the back side of the nail was easy. I used a nail polish brush for this.

Don't waste your money on anything else or damage your liver with sporonox or lamasil...this works! Be patient and be diligent and you too will beat nail fungus.

can you give rough measurements for the amount of vinegar/water you used?


And what kind of vinegar? Will white distilled work? Also how long did it take? Thanks


they said 1 part vinegar and 1 part water


May I know how long u get rid of the problem after you've started your treatment?


I started this method last night...I have high hopes. I've decided to use apple cider vinegar as well as the 100% tea tree oil...they both contain antifunal properties whereas white vinegar does not.


Pardon the misspelling above 'antifungal' lol


Hi, I agree that consistency is the key. My question is did the nail ever grow back normally? I think you mentioned
that it had separated...


Socks and shoes are my nemisis..they keep the toes warm and moist (sweating feet) and that is perfect environment for the fungus to grow. Wear sandals to avoid that problem.


Apple cider vinegar cures athlete feet fungus. Use enough of the vinegar to cover all infected areas of the foot. if possible, file down toenail prior to soaking. Soak as long as needed but not less than 20 mins. use a strong straight object to scrape the skin from the foot as well as btwn the toes and toenails (partial to a straight blade myself perhaps an old credit card). Repeat every night for about a month. Will see results within 2 weeks. After about a month cut back to 3 times a week for about a month then about 1-2 times a week to as needed. (When hard skin begins to develop or and foot begins to itch). This has worked on everything but have yet to see the toenail fungus completely disappear but has helped considerably.


I have the same question. What type of vinegar?
White commercial vinegar one finds at the grocery store, white wine vinegar or cider vinegar?

What type of file should one use? Is one supposed to file the top of the nail?

Thanks for letting me know,
