Here are a few wart removal home remedies…from the plausible to the harebrained.
Apple Cider Vinegar – Apple cider vinegar costs about a dollar or so at most grocery stores. Dampen a cotton ball, apply to wart, wrap it with sports wrap, and leave it on for a half day (or day if you feel up to it). If the pain is too much, try it a half an hour at a time. Try this for a few days, and if the wart returns, rinse, repeat. Apple cider vinegar works on all warts, from those on your hand to those on your feet.

Duct Tape – Use duct tape to cover the wart for a while. Whenever the duct tape starts to come off, apply a new patch. This treatment takes 1 to 2 months. Duct tape is widely available in most large stores, or you can pick up online at the link below.
Garlic – Crush up some garlic and rub on your wart. Or…you can eat garlic. 2-4 garlic cloves a day will usually do the trick.
Baking Powder and Castor Oil – Mix these two, apply it to the wart, and cover the area with a band-aid. Repeat as necessary.
Warm Water – One study found that having patients soak their plantar warts in very hot water was helpful because it softens the wart and may kill the virus. Make sure the water is not hot enough to cause burns, however.
Vitamin C – Crush 1 vitamin C tablet, and add water to make a thick paste. Apply it to the wart, then cover. Vitamin C is mildly acidic, so it may irritate the wart enough to make it go away. Apply a paste made of crushed vitamin C tablets and water.
Fruit Juice – Use lemon (or pineapple!) juice. Squeeze a little juice on your wart, then cover it with fresh, chopped onions for 30 minutes once a day for two to three weeks.
Aloe – Break open an aloe leaf, and soak up the clear juice from the inner leaf on a cotton ball. Apply the cotton ball to the wart, and cover with a bandage. Repeat daily until the wart is gone.
Just remember…you can always seek medical attention for your warts.
