Due to their antiviral properties, garlic is considered one of the simplest and most effective home remedies against warts. It is necessary to squash the garlic and apply it to the wart and then wrap it with a bandage. Remove bandage after 24 hours. In “difficult” cases, this procedure should be repeated several times.
Essential oils such as castor can also help to remove warts. Take ear stick soaked in oil and apply until the wart disappears.

Peel from bananas and potatoes
One of the popular ways to remove warts is gentle rub with banana peel two to three times daily. Also, the desired results can be achieved if gently rub with fresh potatoes (sliced). The wart should disappear after two weeks.
Plantar warts—painful warts on the bottom of your feet—are sensitive to heat and may disappear in a few weeks if you soak your feet in hot water (43˚C to 45˚C) for a about 15 minutes a day. This remedy was published in a medical journal in the 1960s. For an added kick, pour one part of vinegar into four parts hot water.
Papaya contains an enzyme that digests dead tissue. Make shallow cuts on the surface of an unripe papaya, collect the sap that runs out and let it coagulate. Mix the thickened sap with water, then apply morning and night.
Pull a dandelion from your yard, break the stem and squeeze some of its liquid onto your wart. Do this daily as needed. The sap is mildly irritating, so it stimulates your immune system to take care of the wart. Don’t use dandelions that have been treated with herbicides during the previous few years.
