4. Apple Cider Vinegar

One of the oldest and best home remedies for toenail fungus. Some people say that you can simply pour it directly on the toenail and allow to dry. Others say that you should mix one part apple cider vinegar with one part Epsom salt and six parts of hot water. When the water is warm, but not hot, soak your feet for 30 minutes, then rinse.

 

5. Coconut Oil

One of the ingredients in coconut oil, caprylic acid, has the ability to penetrate the cell wall of fungi. Without its protective coating, the fungus dies. Apply a thin layer of coconut oil to the infected nail and allow it to soak in for 15 to 30 minutes.  Do this at least once per day, but twice per day will work much faster.
