We are still up to our ears in boxes and pretending we always live in a half empty very clean house—but I had to post because I felt absolutely compelled to share with you this crazy witch-y folk remedy for removing a wart that works so well, it's almost making me mad.
Sadie has had a huge wart of her finger for almost 2 years. It's really been bugging her and freezing it off didn't work and it freaked her out and we just didn't know what to do—so after a few failed attempts with other remedies, we did nothing. Then I read somewhere, I have no clue where, that if you put a little bit of cotton soaked with apple cider vinegar on the wart and cover it with a band-aid overnight for a week or so, it will slowly turn black and then go away. Seriously, after one night of this it turned black—and now after 4 days it's half the size and is dry and just shriveling up. I heard it hurt at little at first, but she says it doesn't at all. My god, I can't believe it. It is almost gone now, so I figure it will be totally gone soon. I just had to share this.
I was going to post a photo, but I think a close-up of a half-dried up wart might be pushing it, even with my current state of mind.
Okay, back to crazy-ville. Thanks much for all your e-mails, awesome people.
