Q. My daughter had several warts on her hands and was able to kill them quickly with lemon juice.   She dabbed the warts with a sliver of lemon three or four times a day and all of the warts fell off within four days.

A. Four years ago we heard from another mother whose daughter also had warts: “Years ago my daughter had eight plantar warts on the bottoms of her feet. She could hardly walk and I tried everything to no avail.

“A friend of mine suggested squeezing fresh lemon juice on them three or four times a day. We had nothing to lose so we tried it. Those warts turned black and fell off so fast she was completely healed within four weeks. I hope this will help others.”

Other wart remedies include topical applications of castor oil, vinegar, Listerine or even instant glue. Some people report good results with duct tape and others get rid of warts by taping a piece of banana peel to them, fleshy side to skin.

I too have had success with lemon juice, though if one becomes stubborn, try garlic paste covered with a band-aid.

Years ago my son had warts and the doctor could not heal them. I had aloe plants and cut a slice off and put it on his hand with a band aid and his hand healed up. i wish i would have remembered that when i had a spider bite on my lip last month.

I put lemon juice on my warts tonight, does it matter if it is store-bought lemon juice? I hope it helps, have had one of my warts for 2-3 years.
