  • Put duct tape over it for several days and it will die off.

  • Take a spoon. Crush asprin on the spoon and add just a tiny bit of water to create a paste. Put the asprin paste on the water and cover with bandaid. Yes, you can open the wart up to allow the asprin paste to seep in easier, but you don't have to. Leave bandaid on overnight. Then wake it off, wash the wart, and reapply a new mixture of asprin paste if needed. My dad did this when we got a wart and it worked every time.

  • Take a penny and duct tape it over the wart. A guy told me this one, says his grandma used it to get rid of his warts when he was younger. It has something to do with the copper and it worked!
