by Heather on November 1, 2013

There are not many people who can tolerate the look of warts, more so if there are several grouped together.  The easiest and safest way to remove warts is with the apple cider vinegar wart removal method. But is it really effective and safe for your skin? What’s great about using apple cider vinegar is that it works fast, it’s cheap and you don’t get ugly scars left behind on your skin after their removal.

It will only cost you around $5 to get apple cider vinegar in a bottle from the grocery store. On the other hand, a trip to the doctor to have your warts removed would mean spending a maximum of $700 for every removal procedure you go through such as laser therapy or cryotherapy.

What Makes Apple Cider Vinegar An Effective Treatment On Warts?

A lot of people are skeptical about the effectiveness of home remedies such as apple cider vinegar since they opt for surgery and over-the-counter products to treat their warts. Apple cider vinegar really works, however, to successfully make the warts disappear you should know how it is used.

It is actually due to the vinegar’s acid content that makes it an effective treatment for warts. Although the virus HPV that causes the wart is not killed with the use of the vinegar, the wart is still removed by soaking the vinegar right onto the wart present on your skin and the peeling off process that takes place afterwards.

How is Wart Removal With Apple Cider Vinegar Done?

One common method is by using the ACV and soaking a cotton ball in it before applying the cotton ball on the affected skin area, and with the use of a tape or band aid the cotton ball is held in place. This should be done before you go to bed at night and the cotton ball should be removed at the time you get up in the morning. After applying this method for at least a week you will see that the warts will start to brown, then turn black and fall off completely.

Another method is by creating a solution of the apple cider vinegar by equally mixing it with warm water. Warts present on your hands and feet can be treated by submerging your hands and feet into the solution each day for a minimum of 15 minutes. This method also works although not as effectively as using the soaked cotton balls.

If you have a group of warts in an area of your body that is covered by clothing, then the cotton ball soaking method can be used easily. If the warts are on your face or near your eye area, you should use caution since the acidic properties of Apple Cider Vinegar can actually “burn” the surround skin which will leave the pigment a different shade than the surrounding skin.

The secret is to stop using the vinegar only once the wart completely disappears. Avoid peeling off the wart’s outer layer and think the wart is not present anymore. Sometimes the wart just grows back right after you stop using the ACV.

Since you now have an idea that ACV definitely works, go get a bottle from one of the local grocery stores near you and see for yourself.
