Black tea

Soak your feet in plain tea to treat toenail fungus at home. The tannic acid in black tea helps dry out the feet, reduces sweating by closing the foot’s pores, and also kills bacteria.

Simply add 5-7 tea bags in 2 quarts of boiled water. Let it cool and soak your feet for 30 minutes. Use this method daily until desired.

Apply Tea Tree Oil

Toenail fungus can appear at any age but older individuals are more prone to developing toenail fungus due to various reasons. An untreated toenail fungus can spread to the other nails and cause athlete’s foot. As soon as you notice discoloration of the toenails, treat it. The toe may become yellow, off white or brown at the edges or one side.

The cause of toenail fungus is a fungus, so as a home remedy you should apply anything that might kill the fungus such as vinegar, Listerine, or Tea tree Oil. Tea tree oil has anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties that are also effective against acne, germs, and infections. Apply a few drops of tea tree oil directly to the toenail or use a cotton ball to spread it. Let it also seep inside the nail to act from the inside and kill toenail fungus.
