Apple cider vinegar for warts

My husband has a terrible case of plantar warts. We are soaking his feet nightly for a minimum of an hour in apple cider vinegar. My question is: can we re-use the ACV or should we use fresh stuff every day? Should we boil it or will that damage the healing properties of the ACV? I appriciate your help!

Re: Apple cider vinegar for warts

Yes you can reuse it as a foot soak. Soaking in it does not change its properties. Do not boil it! You must also use raw unfiltered ACV with the mother. Do not use the white acv you get in the grocery store.
Raw unfiltered acv can be bought in a health food store. Costs about 5 or 6 dollars for a liter.

Re: Apple cider vinegar for warts

Have you heard about the duct tape treatment??
I had and went to a poditrist in Seattle a few years back. Since I needed to get back to work and they hurt really bad, I did an acid patch thing sort of like compound W, but stronger. Worked pretty fast.
But, talking to this doctor we discussed old time treatments--one was taping a penny over the wart, and then the duct tape treatment.
Apparently with the duct tape, your body does not like the adhesive and when it tries to get rid of it, it gets rid of the wart.
The penny thing works with copper the same way.
I had a coworker who did the duct tape and it did work?

Thumbs up Re: Apple cider vinegar for warts

The ACV I bought is brownish, but from a grocery store. My husband is responding like I expected...in lots of pain. Are we using the right stuff?

Thanks for your help! I've had a hard time finding the answers I need!

Oh, that's why the duct tape works. We will have to try that. Thanks for your help!

Re: Apple cider vinegar for warts

The ACV should say on the label if it is raw and unfiltered. If it is Heinz it is not acv.

Re: Apple cider vinegar for warts

I watched as a shipmate did this with a wart on his hand, and it worked as well as the patches I got from the drug store.
And, one always has duct tape, but not always a drugstore.
Please report back?

I know it is not Heinz, but I think it is a cheapie brand as I paid aprox $2.50 for one gallon.

I follow up his soaks with tea tree oil. Despit the fact that it is a cheap brand, we seem to be getting results! They are turning black (yay!), he's in lots of pain (yay!...kinda), and the largest cluster has decreased dramatically in size (yay!!!). If the progress starts to slow down I will find the raw stuff. We need to get this out of his body!

Thank you so much for your help!!!!!

We haven't tried the duct tape yet, but have been making great progress with ACV and tea tree oil. He soaks for an hour or so in the ACV, then, once his foot dries, I apply the oil with a gloved hand. Not better yet, but getting there!!
