Apple Cider Vinegar

[YEA] ACV got rid of my mole in minutes! I had a mole -the kind that's raised and rough to the touch- grow within the last month or so on my front torso. It was itchy and had grown enough that it was bothersome.
I'd read somewhere that if I doused a cotton ball with ACV and just rubbed the mole, it would come off.
I tried it last night: doused a cotton ball and started rubbing the mole.
At first just flecks of the mole started to come off. Then after about four minutes of gently rubbing the mole and 3-4 cotton balls later, half the mole was gone! It was disintegrating little by little -kind of like a scab would- and I was a little worried because although it wasn't bleeding, it was leaving a red/bloody 'footprint' on my skin. There was a little blood on the cotton balls which turned the cotton ball dark brown (i assume the reaction of the blood with the vinegar) but other than that, it took about EIGHT minutes for the mole to be completely OFF!
I wiped the newly mole-free area with one more swipe of a cotton ball and put on a small bandage to keep it from chafing from my shirt while I slept.
Right now, a day later, it looks like it's scabbing. I 'cleaned' it again today with another swipe of ACV and it stung, but subsided.
I don't know what'll happen, or if it'll grow back, so we'll see, but I would rather have this scab than that itchy nasty raised mole!
I did not do what most have done, which is to leave the cotton ball on for days; I just literally rubbed the mole off in minutes. Not sure if that would work for everyone.
Good luck to you!
