Are you tired of walking on painful plantar warts? Here’s something to try: Every night, soak your foot in a basin of hot water for five minutes. Then soak a cotton ball with Listerine mouthwash (the brown stuff), apply it directly to the plantar warts (it shouldn’t sting) and tape it in place. (Listerine? Who discovered this? Maybe it was someone who put his foot in his mouth.) Keep the mouthwash-soaked cotton ball on your foot overnight. After one or two weeks, the warts should be gone, leaving your foot smooth and wart-free!
