INGREDIENTS: Apple Cider Vinegar, Duct tape and cotton.
I used the apple cider vinegar that cost $1.39, soaking a cotton ball or take off the ends of a q-tip, you can soak it in the cap of the vinegar bottle and then put it on the wart with a small piece of duct tape on the foot, for each wart, then take a bigger piece of duct tape to cover the smaller pieces of tape, if you have more than one wart on your foot. and then i wrap it in SelfGrip elastic self adhering elastic bandage, to secure it and wore a sock to bed.
For the foot, soak in water for 5 to 10 min, scape off what you can with your fav tool, maybe try to draw a little blood. It hurts like hell when you put the ACV on, like someone shot your foot with a shot gun, that is how i knew it was working.
Within a week, my wart that has been there for more than 6 years and after trying everything, spending lots of money for docs, freezing my foot off, to over the counter junk. The ACV remedy worked in a week. It started to turn black within the first 2 days of the process (those are the roots) and the next week it came off. The apple cider vinegar is cheap and works so quickly, plus it works in the middle of the night, if you do it in the day you may not be able to walk.
Don't wast your money, just keep at it and it will go away. The foot is harder to kill than warts on the hands or face, cuase they grow inside the foot, so you need to soak and scrap. The hands, just have to just apply a cotton ball or q-tip ends with a band Aid and that is it. duct tape alone with take for ever and nothing has worked except this.

Duct tape began to work for me, but only after I began using salicyclic acid on the area before taping. That left the skin all over my sole peeling so I went to the doctor and he cut out two of them (ouch). That put me off work for a week , but the other nine were still there. (Oh yeah, don't procrastinate when it comes to plantar warts, they spread rapidly)
Then I found 'DuoForte 27 Gel' at the drugstore ($18). Put it directly on top of the wart after you get out of the shower/tub. When it dries, it forms a hard 'skin' over the wart so it doesn't rub off like creams often will. The next day you soak your foot/feet and file down what you can of the head of the wart (remove the hard skin surrounding them as well, my sister is a nurse and she told me to keep picking at them). This stuff worked like magic for me. It was only a matter of days...yes, days when the warts began to die. You'll know the end is near when they form a dark red to black dot. Then it's just a matter of time before it falls off with a little circle of skin surrounding it. The doctor tried freezing the others I had but it didn't do anything for me. I had previously used 2 cans of the drugstore freeze remedy ($20 each)...not a thing.
The big thing I found with my warts is, don't be afraid to file them or clip the skin down as far as you can. Just short of making them bleed was good for me.
I have had mosaic plantar warts on the bottom of my foot for about 3 years now. They covered the size of about two half dollars on my right foot. I really wish I had taken a picture of my foot, but did not because I never though I'd get as far as I have. I've tried a lot. Duct tape alone (never did a thing for me), and tape holding on Garlic, Banana Peels, Pads w/ Apple cider vinigar... the only thing that appeared to work was the AC Vinigar, but all it really did was raise up the dead skin and every wart enough to chop off the dead skin with a razor blade. One week later the thick white skin was there agian. I've tried salicylic acid with nothing more than weeks of peeling skin revealing the warts underneath. Then after treatment they'd grow back. I took dry ice to my foot twice, after the first time looked like it helped. A week later, it all came back. And that was painful. Lastly, I tried in desparation, a weak concentration of nitric acid. Don't ask my where you can find this other than chemical suppliers. I recalled once in a chemistry mishap where nitric acid ate through my glove, got on my finger tip, turned the skin yellow, and it all fell off a few days later. Well, I intentionally rubbed a somewhat weak concentration nitric acid on my warts. Day two, I did it again. And a thrid time. Worst sympton was mild burning, but barely noticable. The skin turned a dark yellow. The skin loosened up enough to peel / cut away. Its been a few weeks now, and so far, smooth skin. I have yet to see if it all comes back, but so far this is the only thing that has lasted longer than a week. I'm going to ask my dermitologist about what I did. He had told me that there was absolutely nothing that could be done to a case as bad as mine. But we'll see. I'm full of hope now because this worked so well. I really hope this could lead to perhaps a doctor's application of nitric acid (since its hard to come by) as a treatment in the future. I think this is big. Yes, they could still come back, as its only been about a month, but still, this is 3 weeks + longer than anything else.
I had 3 plantar warts on the bottom of one of my feet, and I tried everything to get rid of them (no over the counter wart remover even phased them). The only thing that worked was a home remedy that I found on another home remedy website. Here it is:
Mix 2 parts Castor Oil with 1 part Baking Soda and stir until a paste is formed - it should be about the same consistency as jelly or Elmer's glue (but not sticky!). Apply the paste liberally to the wart, then cover with a band-aid. Do this at least two to three times per day. You should also try scrubbing the wart with a pumice stone every night before applying the paste. This will remove the top layer of dead skin on the wart.
After suffering with my planter warts for about 2 months, this remedy completely cured them in about 2 weeks!
Nothing works better for plantar warts than good old fashion grey duct tape. Here's what you do:
* shave the wart down to make it flat.
* cover the wart and the surrounding area around the wart with duct tape.
* leave the duct tape on for 10 days.
* if the duct tape starts to come off just replace it.
* On the 10th day take the tape of and soak your foot in warm water while scrubing the wart with a pumis rock to remove the dead skin.
* re-tape your foot again for another 10 days and repeat the process until the wart is gone.
I have personally done this and believe me it was the ONLY thing that worked for me.
