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

vs.

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

<p>I used to suffer from HERPES for about 4 years so I can relate to people who have it. No medications or treatments ever really did anything for me (i tried them all haha) but I was actually able to completely cure HERPES naturally after countless hours of online research. What worked for me is as follows: I saw Dr Molemen Information online that he normally cure and treat disease and infirmities with his Herbal Medicine, I never really believed the people who where recommending him thou i saw on blog about 5 people where also testifying on how they were cured by Dr Molemen, I decided to give a try and i hoped to myself that something good was going to come out from it, I told Dr Molemen about my HERPES disease and he told me he was going to send me some herbal medicine he requested for some few personal information from me and he said he was going to make use of it in order to prepare the medicine, after 2 days in communication with Dr Molemen he prepared the Herbal Medicine and sent it to me, i used this medicine for approximately 2 weeks and today i am HERPES Free i am totally cured from HERPES, Friends this is so true and i urge you to try out, you can reach Dr Molemen at ( dr.molemenspiritualtemple@yahoo.com or drmolemenspiritualtemple@gmail.com ) you can call him on +2347036013351.</p><p> Thank you Dr Molemen for your Healing.</p>

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>
Will this work for <a href="http://www.rejuvenationwa.com/chemical-peel-for-acne-scar-removal-wrinkle-reduction-anti-aging/" rel="nofollow">scar removal seattle</a> as well?
This is hardly a proper method for wart removal. People feel scared enough when a professional removes their wart, not to mention when doing it themselves with a computer dust-off spray.<br /> <br /> Visit this <a href="#" rel="nofollow">wart removal</a> website traditional, almost painless and cost-less methods.
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!
It&rsquo;s very surprise! I bought a brand bag from brandbagfactory.com. It is very valuable. I often purchases products from brandbagfactory.com I think it&rsquo;s a good website. What you see is what you get!
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"
This worked like a charm for me. 3 dollars for it :) Thanks so much for the idea, almost a year later and still healthy and wart free. Saved me over 17 dollars.
it didnt work, dammit
tetrafluorethane is actually flammable under a few certain circumstances and may cause flash fires, but most of the time you're safe
so does this work for genital warts? lol, my firends and i used to mess around with each other by sneaking up behind each other and spraying tthem with this stuff, It would hurt like hell, and as long as you didnt do it to long it would not cause permenant damage.
My one friend used an retail kit on his genitals and it worked just fine despite the warnings not to. He was going to get some LN2'd at the health center anyway, so I really don't see the difference between that and this. Again, I'm not a doctor, so if you end up maiming your unit, I'm not responsible.
Hmmm. Genital warts + duct tape underwear/cup/jock strap/G-string.<br/><br/>1)Cheap<br/>2)Disposable (never needs washing)<br/>3)Removes warts<br/>4)Epilates - side effect (removes unwanted hair)<br/>I'll stop here---- <br/><br/>I don't see a down side. ;) <br/>
Duct tape works better. It's been proven.
Duct tape takes forever. I'd rather do this for the same period of time with less maintenance than changing a piece of duct tape. When my dermatologist starts prescribing duct tape, I'll let you know.
1, 1, 1, 2 Tetrafluorethane (R-134a) has a boiling point of −26.6 °C (−15.9 °F)
Compared to: propane: -42C dimethyl ether: -22C isobutane: -12C So its pretty close. It's definitely does the job.
I fixed the label on your spray can :-p
Whoops, I guess using the right picture would be a good idea...
Computer dust-off spray: not intended to diagnose, cure, treat, or prevent any disease
wo do you think this will work on a corn i have one on my foot
I can't recommend it for anything other than molluscum or warts (what I've seen it used on) but I would assume, if freezing off corns is normal practice at G.P's offices, this would work just fine.
