    Just read an article, and saw it on the news...duct tape is just as effective, the counter medical wart removers. Leave duct tape on the wart for six days, then take it off, and use something like a stuff brush to scrub the dead wart off. It's effective enough to be considered an alternative to liquid nitrogen. Weird.

    Duct tape...is there anything it CAN'T do?

  6. i hate duct tape
    it has become trendy and overrated.

    i saw a little boy so in love with it, he made holsters for his belt and covered his blisters with duct tape so they would heal and tore the tape off and it was infected.

    modern medicine..
  7. He did it wrong. You PREVENT blisters by putting duct tape over hot spots, like heels and the outside of the foot. If you going to fix one you MUST use moleskin and a clean, dry dressing.

    Yeah, I read this same report in the paper while riding home on the train. It went on the explain that duct tape irritates the wart, triggering a reaction from the immune system, which in turn begins to shed the wart.

    Who woulda thunk it?

    I just bought my first roll of gaffer's tape. It's exactly like duct tape, only better.
  17. For those of you that are not familiar with gaffer's tape, it is a more potent version of duct tape which is available by prescription only. It is widely used to treat cancerous growths.

  18. i removed a warth last year too.. but i did it the " hardcore " way, by heating up my solder-iron and keeping a big stick in my mouth..
