20 Comments for the Fingernail Fungus Home Remedy


I had gotten toenail fungus one day, and while using my nail clippers to trim my toenails, I forgot to clean my nail clippers. Well, needless to say, I used those same uncleaned nail clippers to trim my finger nails, and so my fingers ended up with the fungus in it. I have tried other remedies from reading what others have posted, but none seemed to get rid of it.

One day, I brought my fingers to my nose and sniffed it. There was an aweful odor coming from my fingers. The fungus had gotten so bad that I had to do something.

I have tried using Listerine twice daily but it did nothing to take it away. One day, a thought formed in my head of a remedy and I took the initiative and went for it.

I took one quarter cap of Clorax Bleach and put it into a small bowl, and then added 6 to 8 ounces of luke warm water to it. I soaked my fingers in that solution for 3 to 5 minutes being extra careful not to splash bleach water onto my clothing. After that, I washed my fingers and hands thoroughly, then disposed of the bleach water down the drain. Since that first soak, it has not come back.

You may have to soak a second time if you see signs, but I doubt you will. Give it a try, but just be careful that you are not allergic to bleach, and that you use a minimal amount. Bleach is used in some hospitals as a cleaning agent to disinfect hospital rooms, beds, and furniture after a patient is discharge to home. So I figured why not give it a try. After that first soak, I have gotten rid of it, so far.

Good luck to all of you. Hope it works for you...and if it does, leave me a comment. Thanks.

Bleach works also on athletes feet, and poison ivy


I'm going to try this tonight! I really was contemplating doing this! I was scared to buy now I feel confident to try it! Thank my thumb nail was ruined and coming off after I pulled off a fake acrylic tip then fungus developed to the exposed nail bed at the top of the nail at the cuticle! Gross and embarrassing! Thank you so much!


One quarter cap or one quarter cup? Please clarify


I had trouble after taking off acrylic nails. I have a yellow substance on about 4 of my fingernails. Thank you for the bleach tip. I will certainly try that. I will go to a licensed person for my nails instead of these small nail shops from now on. Good luck to everybody

Fungus started receding immediately. Might have to do one more soak but this is working wonders. Thank you!
