Picture of Dry
First, remember that you have to keep your feet dry. After a shower, dry your feet throughly with a towel. Don't forget in between the toes!

Step 3: Vinegar

After every shower, dip a cotton swab in vinegar and brush your entire foot with vinegar. Let dry. If you have foot fungus on both feet, brush both! Another way is to pour a mixture of 5/6 vinegar and 1/6 water into a basin and soak your feet in it for 5 minutes.

Step 4: Remember

Don't forget to keep your feet clean and dry. This is the most important thing. Good Luck and don't forget to comment and rate!

Hmm, sounds like there is a controversy over vinegar or baking soda! The picture above does not have the latter, so it seems that Instructables does not condone it yet.

hey, i'm going to try this and suggest it to my father-in-law. We recently moved in with hime to help out and now I have it from the shower and have to wear flip-flops so it doesn't spread. ( I don't really have the time to scrub the shower for an hour or more EVERY DAY) Hope it really works. So far the feedback results have encouraged me. Thanks.

btw, i have one of those foot spa things that just circulate water, would I be able to use that for the basin or would it mess it up? just wonderin

I have just had a bad case of foot fungus, that was spreading rapidly.
After an incorrect diagnosis, I had to have a scraping done with a microbiologist to diagnose it, and an oral dose of anti-fungals.
He told me that vinegar feeds the fungus, and if you think about how it is made, you will realise.
Fermentation.. fermentation.. fermentation
If you have tinea/athlete's foot/foot fungus, get it diagnosed, and hopefully if you have a tough liver, your doc will prescribe the anti-fungals..

I am going to try this, and will post after several weeks. The store bought anti-fungal is expensive, and only works on me for a couple of weeks, then everything comes back.

BIG LIE!!!! you can't get rid of fungus with an acidic substance since fungus thrives in an acidic environment, they love the acid... The only way to get rid of fungus is with a super alkaline substance like Baking Soda (not baking powder) Check your facts before you believe this lie that you can get rid of fungus with an acidic substance. You wanna get rid of fungus? soak your feet in water with baking soda in it for a while, the baking soda KILLS the fungus, not the vinegar. Vinegar feeds the fungus, therefore increasing the problem. Don't be a dummy and get the FACTS
it works even Dr. Oz did a show on it!!!

This also works for toenail fungus. I soaked my feet in white distilled vinegar for 30 minutes, 3X /week for two weeks. My athletes foot disappeared instantly and the toenail fungus went away for a few months then I had to treat again. The second time I treated for a month and it was gone. You might have to treat longer if your case is severe.

I will give this a try . . . . Damn, now the whole world knows about my Foot Fungus! Brown or white or can I use Cider vinegar?
I would guess you could use cider. It's just as acidic as white distilled vinegar, I believe.
