3. "One of the most effective remedies to employ for toenail fungus is to put tea tree oil on it. You should specially apply this oil beneath your nails so that it manages to seep into the skin between your nails and toe and can begin working on it. It is better that you dilute it with an equal amount of olive oil and then apply it. This is because tea tree oil is an extremely strong product. While it will kill any fungus and bacteria that are residing in your toenails, it may also damage your skin in the process...Another remedy you can use to cure toenail fungus is vinegar. You can actually rub vinegar to your toenail with a wad of cotton soaked in it. This will help to get rid of the fungus very effectively. If you use organic vinegar, it will work better. You can also use highly mentholated substances to kill the fungus. For instance, you can rub Vicks on your toenails. This will help to literally "choke" the fungus to death. You can also use substances like toothpaste and mouthwash. These have strong properties that kill germs and bacteria and will work very well when applied and left on in concentrated quantities on a fungal infection" (3)
