Want to get rid of a wart, but don't want to use harsh salicylic acid or pay for an expensive wart-freezing kit? This instructable will show you how to freeze off your own warts for 1/3 the price.

Step 1: Get the supplies

You're going to need a can of computer duster from your local office supply store. The ingredients in the one I've used is simply tetrafluorethane gas (non-carcinogenic, and non-flammable for the record) compared to the retail wart remover which is dimethyl ether, propane and isobutane.

Also pick up a pack of plastic Qtips.

Duster: USD$7 for a giant can (12oz)
Qtips: $2.50 for 375


USD$25 for a wart freeze off kit (12 uses total)


This stuff works sometimes, but you still have to kill the root deep underneath the skin....here's how www.wartremoval.ca

My doctor has had two attempts at freezing off a large wart I've had on my hand for about 18 years. Both these treatments were pure torture and failed. <br><br>Two weeks ago I decided to try something new. I purchased a glass (crystal) nail file which I use each morning to file a little more off the wart. It is now level with the skin surface and will soon be gone.<br><br>Very easy and painless.<br>
Do u think any other nail file would work?
I used wart off over the counter wart remover. It works but it takes forever. You have to apply the stuff daily for us to 15 days and eventualy the skin and wart should peel off. Unfortunately it did not really work because it didn't peel off the whole wart and it grew back. If you really want it to work you have to keep dedicated to daily applications and possibly having to do it again if it doesnt remove all of the wart. Wart Control from ForcesOfNature, anyone tried this? <a href="http://www.forcesofnatureusa.com/Wart-Treatment-s/1819.htm" rel="nofollow">http://www.forcesofnatureusa.com/Wart-Treatment-s/1819.htm</a>
This could be a possible solution to get rid of a wart but there are several other easier more productive ways. Not only are there many over the counter products available at your local drug store but several common house hold items can also be used as home remedies and work just as well! Check out this website http://www.getridofwartfast.com ive found several helpful things its worth the look!
My dad is a doctor and he uses this and says it works better because the dust spray gets colder.
I haven't tried it yet, but I've read that tea tree oil, or Melaleuca alternifolia oil, is an effective natural remedy. Tea tree oil is a really lovely product from Australia--it tingles and smells kind of like eucalyptus, and I've used as a treatment for cuts and blisters, because it acts as an antimicrobial. Its also the main ingredient in the Derma Remedies product. I'm going to make an experimental paste of garlic and tea tree oil and let you guys know what happens to the annoying wart on my right heel (the place where I always get blisters from sandals).
Never use dust remover for wart removal, its crazy!!<br/><br/>Derma Remedies have an awesome product for wart removal. Their stuff is natural and really works! <br/><br/>You just apply to the warts and they flake away by themselves and never grow back. Plus no scarring! Great stuff!<br/> <br/>Check out their website to order (they have a buy 2 get 1 free special too)<br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.dermaremedies.com">http://www.dermaremedies.com</a><br/>
Yes! I agree I tried the product from Derma Remedies too. It worked way better than anything else I tried. Mine just kept growing back with cutting them off/freezing. After a short period of time they changed color and fell off. No burning or scarring. Can't even tell where they ever were on my skin. I was skeptical at first, but not a skeptical as trying Dust Off......LOL! Check them out! You won't be sorry you did!
will this work on a mole?
probably not. it will also hurt like hell.
Have you tried duct tape? <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.jyi.org/volumes/volume7/issue5/features/demichele.html">Studies show</a> that it's more effective than freezing for wart removal.<br/>
yea, but the duct tape takes weeks, and it's a pain in the @#$ when the tape must be kept applied to an area that you are always washing, such as your hands
Duct tape... what cant you do
Yay, i want to struggle to keep duct tape on my hand for 2 months while my wart slowly dies of old age!!! Haven't you heard? Random pieces of duct tape on you hand for 2 months is the newest, most awesomest fashion statement out there! 2 months, or maybe a week or so, hmm, which should i choose?
Just don't breathe it in accidentally. This stuff can and will kill you.
when i saw the picture of the dust remover i just thought "what crazy person would ever try this"
