(I'm sorry, I've been a fan of the site for a couple years, and just now have something to add. I'm not sure if this is even how to go about submitting my information, so sorry if it's extra work for someone.)

About 7 years ago I bought a pair of flip-flops from a dollar store and wore them the whole summer. Problem is that the thong portion had a rather nasty plastic seam, which cut my first toe.

My toe healed, and I went about my life. About 2 years later, I discovered what I thought to be a corn on my toe. I'm not one for doctors, so I just let it be. But it grew. And it grew. And it grew. Then it began to spread.

5 years after it's appearance, I went to the doctor for a completely unrelated issue. In passing, I asked the doctor about my 'corn'. He looked at it, said "It'll hurt if I cut it out. " and left.

Turns out it was a humongus nasty ugly plantars wart. Which by the time your site allowed me to discover the grisly fact, it had multiplied to both feet and 3 toes.

Apple cider vineger didn't do a dang thing. Nor did banana peels, peroxide, nail polish, wart removers or duct tape.

I became rather ashamed of my toe. Until recently. When, thanks to my loving boyfriend, I discovered the hot ticket. POTATO PEEL. Yup. You heard right. I took a small peeling of a potato and taped it onto my foot, changing the peel every day.

After 7 years and multiple dime sized warts, my toe looks just as beautiful as it did before I bought those cheap sandals. No pain, no burning, no problems.

For warts use a raw potato piece and rub it directly on the wart. It will turn black disappear within days..!!!

Rubbing the cut edge of a fresh white potatoe onto a planters wart on the sole of my daughter's foot about twice a day eliminated the wart within 2 or 3 days.We stored the potatoe we used in the refrigerator in saran wrap and then just cut off a thin slice from the previously cut edge and threw that slice away before rubbing the freshly cut edge on the potatoe. My stepfather, a country barber had heard about this remedy from some farmers in his shop. No pain whatsoever!

I used to have warts on the back of both hands. One day someone said to soak raw potato in white vinegar and then put on wart. Do this for 3-7 days and the wart will come off. It worked great and has for a number of others I have shared with. Make sure the potato covers only the wart or your skin will get burned. Potato only needs to soak for an hour or so

I had hundreds of small warts, on my hands, and fingers. Also plantars warts the size of quarters on the bottom of each foot. I cut a small piece off of the top of a potatoe, and rubbed it on my warts several times a day, or whenever I had the notion. I wrapped the potatoe in cellophane, and put it in the fridge, for the next use. I did this for a few weeks, then one day, to my surprise, I woke up, and ALL of my warts had disappeared. Gone, just like they disappeared overnight.
