What Is The Best Home Remedy For Foot Fungus?

You don’t care about foot fungus until you get home one day and the smell of your feet knocks you out!
I lived with my brother and sister in law for 2 years and it was awesome. We were the three musketeers in flesh and bones, until they moved to their new home. So, after packing and unpacking things, I cleaned-up the house and made some more space in the closet, and that was the moment when I found some whity-white cotton sneaker socks that belonged to my brother. They fit perfectly, and I decided to keep them without knowing that I will keep his stinky foot fungus too.

Yes, the thrilled of my new pair of socks was gone, when I got home from work and my feet destroyed my airways. So, the struggle begins, because I know how hard was for my brother to get rid of this nasty bacteria responsible for such odor.

I said to skip using over-the-counter remedies since they cost a fortune with no results, and I resorted to natural remedies.

Honestly, I don’t know which one works best since I used all the below remedies. Every evening before going to sleep I used one of the below remedy, except the tea tree oil which I apply it daily in the morning. Don’t know how, but my feet smell awesome even after a hard day at work.

Apple Cider Vinegar

  • Mix equal quantity of ACV and water in a small tub. Soak your feet in the solution for 30 minutes regularly.
  • Pat dry using a soft cloth.

Tea Tree Oil

  • Mix 1 tbsp of olive oil with 1 tbsp of tea tree oil.
  • Dip a cotton ball in the oil solution and apply it between your toes.
  • Let it act all day long or for 15 minutes.
  • Repeat the process twice in a day.

Baking Soda

  • In a small tub add four cups of lukewarm water, ½ cup of baking soda, 1/4th cup of hydrogen peroxide, ½ cup of Epsom salt and 1/4th cup of white vinegar.
  • Mix all ingredients thoroughly and then soak your feet in the tub for 10 minutes.
  • Later pat dry using a soft cloth.

White Vinegar

  • To 1 part of white vinegar add 2 parts of warm water.
  • Mix thoroughly and then soak your feet in the tub for 10-15 minutes.
  • Pat dry with a cloth after that to avoid moisture.

Listerine Mouthwash

  • Take ½ cup of listerine mouthwash and mix it with ½ cup of white vinegar.
  • Soak your feet in the solution and then rinse it off with water after 30 minutes.

Lemon Juice

  • Gently rub fresh sliced lemon on your feet and allow it to dry for 20 minutes.
  • Alternatively, you can mix olive oil to lemon juice and apply it on your feet before going to bed.

Garlic

  • Mix required amount of garlic oil with white vinegar and apply it on your feet.
  • Else, crush garlic and add 1-2 tsp of olive oil to it.
  • Apply it on your feet, but insist between the toenails and put a pair of cotton socks and go to sleep.

Lavender Oil

  • Mix 5 drops of lavender essential oil with equal amount of tea tree oil.
  • Using a cotton ball apply the mixed oil all over the feet sole and in between the toes.
  • Allow it to dry for 10-15 minutes and then rinse it off.
  • Repeat this simple process twice or thrice in a day.

So, as an answer to the question “What is the best home remedy for foot fungus?”, my response is: All of them are equally good, as long as you combine them.
