All you will need is vinegar -both white vinegar and apple cider vinegar work. (affiliate link)

  • Soak your feet in equal parts of vinegar and water for 15 minutes twice a day. Dry your feet thoroughly. (either apple cider or white vinegar is fine.)
  • Put your shoes in the sun to kill any fungus that might be in them.
  • Add vinegar to your washer and wash your socks on the hottest setting to kill the fungus.
  • Repeat this until the infection disappears.

This procedure works because the acetic acid in vinegar kills the fungus and soothes the itching of athlete’s foot.

This is just one of the many ways that vinegar can be used for household remedies.  For more ideas, please view this article of 50 household ways to use vinegar.

    I have getting athletes foot ever I was using tanning salons like 5 years ago. I no longer go anymore because of that reason. And now it comes back every year, i still can’t get rid it it completely. I wash my shoes with bleach and I am always washing in between the little cracks that goes between the toes that go with the flip flops and sandles. And it always work until maybe the middle of the summer and it is back. My floors are all scrubbed with vinegar and water and I only have 2 rooms with carpet and they are professionally cleaned before summer. So I can’t figure out what I am doing wrong. I am the only one that get’s this.

    If there something I am doing wrong that someone can help me with, I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thank you,
