17. This may be an old wives' tale but...
it worked for me. My mom wouldn't take me to the doctor's for wart removal so my friend's mother said I should rub raw white potato on it every chance I got. I was skeptical but had no other alternative so every time we had potatoes for dinner I'd pick up the discarded skin and rub the white potatoey part on my wart for a good five minutes. The directions I was given was to rub hard and extract as much of the milky white potato juice to cover the wart as I could and then not to wash it off.

After every application the thing got tinier and drier and more shrivelled and I believe within a matter of weeks it fell off.
