Q. I read your article on getting rid of warts by soaking them in hot water. I have a better solution.
I had a huge wart come up on my stomach. I used instant glue and smothered it to death! It turned black after a few days. Then I used a small brush to get rid of the black layer, and reapplied superglue until it was gone. Beats hot water, ouch!
A. We’ve heard of dozens of remedies for wart removal, but this is a new one for us. You can’t technically “smother” a wart. The virus responsible doesn’t breathe. But it sounds as if your tactic is at least as interesting as using castor oil or banana skin to banish warts.
