First I soaked both feet in 1/3 parts vinegar and 2/3 parts warm water for about 40 minutes, then I used a new toothbrush and some surgical prep soap I had in the house to gently scrub them. Then I let then let them dry thoroughly, if possible in sunlight.

In the evening I liberally painted on 100% tea tree oil (you can use Vicks instead) on all nails, allowing it to soak into the sides and under the top of the affected nails.
Then I put a few more drops on a small piece of a cotton ball and laid it over the nail, securing it in place with a band-aid. Then I put a balloon over it. (I had to cut the bottom of the balloon off so it would not be too tight on my big toes or cut off circulation).

I got the balloon idea on this site, and it is GREAT because it kept the oil on the area and kept my sheets clean.
It can also be used to soak the area without having to use a basin. Yu can soak cotton balls in your soaking solution, then put on the balloon and you are free to walk around while you soak! GENIUS!

I've found with using topical treatments soaked in a cottonball, that a finger cot rolled over top, keeps the treatment in place comfortably. Works the same as the balloon usage, but perhaps more easily applied.
