You'll need:
Duct tape,

Step 2: Remove That Wart!

Cut out a piece of duct tape the size of the wart you want to remove and apply it to your skin. Keep it on for a week without removing. When the week is up, soak the wart in warm water, rinse, and air-dry overnight. Repeat this process as nescessary until the wart disappears completely.

Step 3: Finished!

After about three weeks of following this simple process, the wart should be gone forever! I hope you enjoyed this simple life hack, and please vote.

If your warts are stubborn and not going away there is something wrong with your immune system. This site explains why some people get warts and others exposed to the virus don't

i just get a razor blade and cut it out. not the best way. but it works

Does the wart ever come back?

not if you get the core of it out

Wait a minute! I disagree... it IS the best way to get rid of warts. Why try to get rid of warts in a 5 weeks when you can in 5 minutes?

OUCH! How much does that bleed? It makes me shudder to think of cutting into my skin with a razor blade!

curious youth (author)Chikpea2014-02-01

i dont bleed too much, but i guess that varies person to person. and ive found people can take much more pain when they are inflicting on themselves. if that makes sense

though i removed mine by heating it with a cigarette everytime i light one... took only a few days.

Does that burn the skin around the wart?

tukmol (author)Chikpeas Brother2013-05-08

nope it didn't.

Chikpea (author)tukmol2013-05-16

Interesting... but what if someone doesn't smoke?

tukmol (author)Chikpea2013-05-16

hmmm.... mosquito coils can do, i believe.

Chikpea (author)tukmol2013-05-17

I suppose that would also keep mosquitoes from biting you. ^^

I've heard that the white stuff in dandelion removes warts too.

Chikpea (author)die potato2013-05-16

Do you mean the white fluffy stuff at the top, or the white dandelion milk in the stem?

fun fact, raw garlic is high in sialic acid which is used in many commercial wart removal creams/drops.

You can just stick a bit on the wart, cover it with a plaster, watch it though, it does burn.

Chikpeas Brother (author)tim_n2013-05-04

That sounds painful, although I don't doubt it's effectiveness. Garlic is good for a lot of things.

The plot of the warts on the apple: apple cut thread, rub the wart with both halves, fold and bind them to the same thread and bury it. When the apple rots then disappear and warts.

Have you ever actually tried it?
