To get rid of planters warts and any other kind of wart:
Before you go to bed
put some vitamin e on a cotton ball and bandaid it over the wart(if it's on your foot,put a sock over that) and go to sleep.
Do this every night for 1 to 2 weeks(and if you want to increase the effect,also add the juice from dandelion stems.Not kidding!)
No more warts ,pain-free!
has worked every time for me

My sister was in the army and got horribly drunk one night. Her husband and some of his 'friends' decided to play a trick on her and put 100 mile an hour tape across her brow. Needless to say, she didn't have eyebrows for a long long time.

And its a gift from god. Duct tape smells like crap anyways.

Ah duct tape - is there nothing it can't do?
2002-10-15 04:42:22 AM  
one time I went to wal-mart and was at the check out buying some duct tape, rope, a ski mask, and a filet knife. The lady got all freaked out. it was strange.
2002-10-15 05:13:45 AM  
Ah ,no.I've not had many and not for years.
When i was a kid both my friend and i caught planters warts from the local pool.She went to the doctor and had it burned off and cut out,yowch.
Well,after hearing what she went through I was determined to find another way,I was and still am a big chicken when it comes to pain.
So I did some reading and I discovered the previously mentioned cure after a search through my parents natural healing book.

Just a general rule around for fixing stuff around the house or anywhere else. If it moves and it's not supposed to, then use duct tape. If it supposed to move and doesn't then use WD-40. This has always worked for me. The duct tape/warts thing does not fit the rule very well though. The tape should make the warts stick around. Hmmmm, wonder if WD-40 would make them leave faster.

After three I'm under the table,
After four I'm under my host.

Does this also work for genital warts?
2002-10-15 09:03:06 AM  
If you cant Duct it, Fuct it!

(did someone say that already?)

The best solution for plantars warts and those other ones that you don't want to use duct tape on.

Ahh, duct tape. When I was a teenager, my boyfriend had an old beat-up truck that was always falling apart. One day his radiator fell right out onto the ground. Luckily, we were near my house, he pushed it into the yard, and duct-taped the thing right back on. Worked like a charm.

Just so you guys know, I'm giving it the test right now. I've got a wart on identical spots on each hand. They've been taped since last night. I'll tell you how it goes.

The US Army would absolutely grind to a halt if not for 100 mph tape. Never go to the field without it. And yes, in the absence of a field dressing, you can use it to bind wounds. Heck, the name of the game is improvisation.

So are companies now going to develop duct-tape cock rings for people with genital worts? Sounds sticky.

As a semi-entertainment professional, I can tell you Gaffers tape is the real deal. Way better than duct tape, but more expensive. I used all over my house for fixing all sorts of things. Everything from taping hockey sticks to fixing a leak in my aquarium until I could drain it. I gave a roll to my brother when he hiked the Appalachian trail, he used it to cover up blisters. Great stuff.

I will report back about the affects of Gaffers tape on warts in 3 to 4 weeks.

Duct tape / gaffer tape, it's all good.

If you're a real thinker, you can be more productive by using duct tape to remove genital warts and in the process you'll have a clean bikini wax.

Duct Tape has lots of contests- I knew a girl who entered into one: [image from too old to be available]

What...what the HELL is that?

That is my prothesis with the duct tape holding it together showing and an afro wig on a plastic chair in a storage room.

I mean, what else could it be?
