An individual can soak his feet in a basin filled with hot, soapy water mixed with 1 cup of apple-cider vinegar, advises Reader���s Digest, for at least 15 minutes before applying castor oil to the corns. Corns typically flake off after 10 days of treatment.

Castor oil alone also remedies corns, states Reader���s Digest. Placing a non-medicated corn pad around the corn, then swabbing drops of castor onto the corn with a cotton swab completes the treatment. One can also puncture a vitamin E or A capsule, and rub the oil into the corn for a few minutes, covering the feet with white socks to bed during this treatment.

Another treatment includes securing a 1-inch-long slice of lemon peel over the corn with a bandage and covering the foot with a white cotton sock before bed, recommends Reader���s Digest. Placing a slice of white onion in a glass container, pouring white vinegar over it, then sitting the mixture in a warm environment throughout the day creates another topical treatment. Securing the onion over the corn with a bandage nightly until the corn is soft enough to remove completes the treatment.
