Here it is, easy and inexpensive!

Tried a lot of OTC products and home remedies and here is what worked best (by far!) for me. Happily it was both simple and probably the least costly.

I won't mention product names -- and some were quite expensive -- but I tried five before settling on what worked for me.

Yes, soaks are messy and inefficient, but they work. As I am not the soaking type here's what I did:

A simple 50-50 solution -- I merely eye-balled the proportions -- of vinegar (I had apple cider vinegar in my cupboard so used it) and Listerine (the original mediciny-tasting one) applied throughout the day when convenient using a MEDICINE DROPPER. Simple!

I have the added advantage of working at home so I could walk around barefoot and apply the drops directly to the toenails whenever I thought to do so. (Even have a dedicated towel to keep underfoot during the dropping process.)

If you are limited to doing it before and after time in the workplace, it will still work just as well.

Fungus cannot survive in an acidic environment so the application of the solution is VERY effective.

To accelerate the process I would use the Vick's Vap-O-Rub trick whenever I had occasion to put on socks to go out. This bang-bang method was by far the most effective one (especially the 50-50 solution as my earlier Vick's efforts alone seemed to yield negligible results).

I'm telling you, I SWEAR by the 50-50 solution, and the simplicity of the eyedropper method vs. the impracticality of footsoaks is a no-brainer, especially since you will likely do it a number of times a day instead of just once, if that. And it's by far the CHEAPEST!

Try it. I promise you'll get very favorable results.

I have toenail fungus on ALL of my toes .... I will surely give this method a try !! Thanks !!


Do you guys file your nails too?

I've tried a lot of home remedies and nothing worked but soaking.

Going to try this one while keeping nails filed every few days!!


I have had toenail fungus for 30 years, very severe now and have tried all the polishes and rx to no avail. Was at the foot dr last week he told me to try vicks. I googled it and found this site. Yesterday I did the 50-50 but in a foot soak.
I soaked white socks in 1/4 cup of the solution, put them on my feet, inserted my feet in large zip bags and taped them around ankles so I could walk a bit in the house. Kept them on for 40 minutes. When I took them off the dead skin on feet from the fungus was peeling. I exfoliated that off then noticed the yellowish part of the nailbed was softer and whiter. Like others, I cut nails shorter and filed to make thinner. I will continue to soak each day as long as I see imrovement.
