Home Remedies for White Clothes

A splatter of cooking grease. Spilled grape juice. A dusty smudge. It seems that white clothes are magnets for stains. Also, the more you wash white clothing, the duller and dingier the material seems to become. To keep your wardrobe crisp and bright, consider using home remedies for white clothes before sinking your hard earned cash into the latest stain-fighting product.


White clothes lose their fresh appearance with every wear, wash, and fold into the drawer. One of the biggest issues with this type of clothing is a dingy or dull appearance. Stains are another concern with food spills topping the list for biggest threats. White clothing also often falls victim to perspiration stains and other spots, such as lipstick smudges, dirt, and dust. Unpleasant odors, such as cigarette smoke, can also tarnish the quality of white clothing.


It’s not uncommon to rely on bleach to whiten clothing, but there are a few setbacks to consider. For starters, bleach isn’t the healthiest product to have in your home. It poses a threat to children and pets. Also, the chemicals found in bleach start to break down the fibers in your clothing faster than other cleaning methods. Before you reach for the bleach and other grocery store products, consider the following home remedies for white clothing:


If you want to increase the fresh scent of your white clothing, sprinkle a bit of baking soda while they sit in the hamper or laundry bag. For brighter whites, add one cup of baking soda to your wash.


To remove perspiration stains on white clothing, pretreat with a paste made out of four tablespoons baking soda and ¼ cup of warm water. Rub the paste into white shirts for minor stains, or leave on for two hours before washing on hard-to-treat stains. To treat stains on white collars, rub in the paste with a bit of added vinegar just before placing in the wash.


Treat an isolated stain on white clothing by rubbing a clean bar of white soap (like Ivory) into the spot. You may use a nail brush to work the fibers, but sometimes, you can focus on the stain by gently using your fingernail. Rinse with cool water.


Treat a fresh tea or coffee stain by immediately pouring boiling water over the stain until it disappears.


An old favorite amongst households is Borax, which can treat a stain when soaked in water. Wash the garment as usual. If the stain is old, make a paste out of Borax and water. Leave on for 15 minutes, and then wash as usual.


How many times have you tossed a few whites in with colors during a wash? Point blank, washing whites with darker colors will decrease their brightness. No matter how tempting – wash only whites together.


To remove rust and discoloration caused by minerals from white cotton T-shirts and underwear, add one cup lemon juice to your washer during the wash cycle. Lemons contain a natural bleaching agent that can treat stains, as well as leave clothing smelling fresh [1]. Some people have brightened their white socks by placing in a saucepan of boiling water with a few slice of lemon.


To remove grass stains, treat by dabbing on rubbing alcohol.


Before washing, apply diluted hydrogen peroxide to white clothing stained with grass.


Add vinegar to a wash to brighten up white clothing. One cup of white distilled vinegar added to the rinse cycle should be enough. You can also treat white cloth diapers with one cup of vinegar added to a wash to eliminate harmful bacteria.


The bacteria and fungi found on white gym socks causes unpleasant smells that tend to linger. When washing, add one cup of a sugarless, alcohol-based mouthwash to the regular wash cycle.


Some say that you can remove stains from white clothing by using a baby wipe.


To remove a fruit stain, sprinkle a small amount of salt on the garment. Rinse in cold water, and then wash in warm water with liquid detergent. If the stain lingers, apply a bit of hydrogen peroxide.


To remove rust from white clothing, try mixing equal amounts of salt and cream of tartar. Lay out your garment on a flat surface and on top of a towel. Spread the remedy out on the rust stain, and place the clothing in the sun to dry. If the rust stain is lifted, wash as usual, but if it proves stubborn, repeat the process.


Some people will soak their white clothing in dishwashing detergent before washing. Others will place liquid dishwashing detergent on a stain, and let it stand for ten minutes before a wash.


Hanging your white clothing on a line outside to dry in the sun can contribute to the natural bleaching of clothes.


When pilling occurs on a white garment, use a disposable razor to gently shave the unwanted blemishes. A substitute for this home remedy is a pumice stone.


To whiten the rubber soles on your shoes, consider using the same treatment designed for car tires – white-wall cleaner.

Home Remedies for Soap Scum

Take a look around your shower, bathtub, and sink and tell me what you see. Any white or gray filmy layer on the surface? If so, you’ve encountered the common complaint of soap scum (or limescale), which can attack many features of the bathroom. To keep a tidy appearance, you may want to learn about home remedies for soap scum.


When the minerals from tap water connect with soap and dirt, the result is often a layer of scaliness that covers well-used bathroom surfaces. You run the increased risk of soap scum when your tap water is hard and filled with minerals.


Since soap scum can develop on shower curtains, bathroom fixtures, bathtubs, shower doors, and tiles, it’s important to know how to combat and prevent the occurrence. Below you will find an array of home remedies for soap scum:


Remove soap scum from a shower door by wiping with a used dryer fabric softener sheet.


When your porcelain enamel sinks and tubs look less than desirable, remove soap scum by using a solution made with one tablespoon of ammonia per every gallon of hot water. Rinse off thoroughly after use. It is easier to apply by transferring the solution to a spray bottle and scrubbing with a sponge or bathroom tool. Wear gloves to avoid your skin coming in contact with the ammonia.


Add warm vinegar to a spray bottle and apply to soap scum. Allow to sit for about 30 minutes. Scrub with a brush or sponge. Rinse with clear water.


Mix one part dishwasher detergent and three parts water to create a spray solution that will attack soap scum. Spray on affected areas and leave on for 15 minutes. Use a sponge or scrub brush to remove. Rinse well with water.


Create a paste for soap scum by mixing baking soda and water together. Apply the remedy to walls and scrubs. Use water to rinse off.


The body spray has a reputation for repelling insects, but also works wonders as a cleanser against soap scum. Apply to affected areas and scrub away.


Treat your shower walls like a car window and whip out the squeegee. After every shower, wipe down the walls and doors with the squeegee to make sure the walls do not develop soap scum. This will also help prevent a buildup of mildew.


You can prevent the buildup of soap scum and mineral deposits by applying a car paste wax to the shower walls and doors.


The kind of soap that you use can affect the development of soap scum. Choose liquid gel soap instead over a solid bar of soap. This switch will prevent an accumulation of talc on the shower walls.


For a nice scent and a way to fight the build up of soap scum, wipe down the shower walls and doors with lemon oil.

Home Remedies for Oily Skin

Your body produces oils as a way to keep the body healthy, but too much can leave your face with undesirable skin. The excess oil can cause blemishes and acne to erupt . However, you don’t have to spend a fortune to achieve oil-free skin. For a clear and glowing complexion, you may want to pay attention to home remedies for oily skin.


From seasonal changes in the environment to your lifestyle habits, your skin is under constant attack. To avoid an excess amount of oil in the body, there are many different causes to duck and dodge to achieve or maintain healthy skin. To remove excess oils and dirt, it’s important to follow a consistent skin care regimen. This helps keep a buildup of oil away.


Overactive hormones and changes in your system can affect the appearance and condition of your face. This is a common reason why teenagers battle poor skin. The changes that take place in the body during puberty wreak havoc on the skin. Pregnant women also suffer from the highs and lows of hormones that cause the sebaceous glands to produce far more oil than usual.


Other common causes of oily skin include:


• Your Environment: The weather can affect your skin. For example, a hot and humid climate makes you sweat more, which contributes to oily skin.


• Irritation: If you scrub your face too hard, the irritation can increase the production of oil.


• Diet: A poor diet will affect the condition of your skin and can cause excessive oiliness.


• Fatigue: Not getting enough sleep can contribute to oily skin.


• Stress: An overproduction of sebum is one of the major causes of oily skin. If you experience a great deal of stress, anxiety and mental tension, chances are your face will suffer for it.


• Your Family Tree: Don’t be surprised if oily skin runs in your family.


• Cosmetics and Facial Products: Some of the makeup you use could clog pores and contribute to an oily skin problem. This is because many cosmetics contain oils that get absorbed into the skin. Some moisturizing creams and lotions can also lead to oily skin.


• Medications: A side effect of some birth control pills and hormone replacement therapy drugs is oily skin.


• Drugs: One of the downsides to smoking tobacco, drinking alcohol, and taking illegal drugs is the increase of oil production that shows in your skin.


• Disease and Sickness: Some medical conditions can cause a patient to suffer oily skin, such as diabetes and polycystic ovary syndrome.


Oily skin threatens a healthy facial appearance. Your chances of developing blackheads greatly increase. Your skin becomes shinier. Cosmetics do not adhere to the face the way you wish. To promote healthy skin, consider the following home remedies for oily skin:


Use egg yolk as a mask to treat oily skin. Use a cotton ball to apply the yolk to oily spots – leaving on for 15 minutes. Rinse off the yolk with cool water.


Pat an equal mixture of lemon juice and water on the face. Allow to dry, and then rinse with warm water followed by cool water. This refreshing remedy helps fight oily skin.


During the day, resist the temptation to touch your face. Hands transfer unwanted oil and dirt to your skin.


Baking soda possesses abrasive qualities that can mildly treat oily skin. Add ½ teaspoon of baking soda to your liquid soap. Gently rub across the nose and chin. This home remedy will help get rid of blackheads and excess oil. Rinse off using cool water.


Combine one to three tablespoons of cornstarch with enough warm water to create a paste that will dry up oily patches on your skin. Rub the mixture on your face and let dry. Shower or rinse off the treatment with lukewarm water over the sink. Use this remedy once per day for the best results.


Fill a small spray bottle with lukewarm water and add one teaspoon of salt. Close your eyes and squirt the salt on your face once per day. Blot dry.


Use a cotton ball to apply white or apple cider vinegar to oily skin before going to bed. Leave the vinegar on for five to ten minutes, and then rinse off with cool water. Continue this remedy for three weeks to see improvements to your skin. If you have sensitive skin, dilute the vinegar with four parts water.


During the summertime, freeze vinegar in an ice tray to make facial cooling cubes for the skin.


Wash oily skin using very warm water and lots of soap, which dissolves unwanted oils in the skin better than cold water and soap.


Astringents are good for drying up excess oil on the skin. Rubbing alcohol possesses this effect, and doesn’t cost an arm and a leg to use. If you have sensitive skin, using astringents on your face could cause irritation.


To treat shiny skin, apply a bit of baby powder to the face. You can also lightly apply to powder over makeup.


For a facial mask to treat oily skin, combine ½ cup mashed apples, ½ cup cooked oatmeal, one slightly beaten egg white, and one tablespoon lemon juice. This will make a smooth paste for the face. Apply and leave on for 15 minutes, and then rinse with cool water.


Owners of an aloe vera plant can treat their oily skin with ease. Break open a leaf and apply the gel to the face, which helps to clear out pores and absorb oil. Use this remedy two to three times a day – especially following a good washing of the face.

Create a healing paste for oily skin by mixing ground oatmeal with aloe vera. Gently rub the paste onto the skin and leave on for 15 minutes before thoroughly washing off. The oatmeal acts as a drying agent, while the aloe vera heals the skin.


Place a small amount of almonds in a food processor and ground into meal. Add a bit of honey to the grounded nuts, and gently massage the paste into your skin using a hot washcloth. Thoroughly rinse off the remedy.


Citrus fruits and some vegetables are known for reducing oils in the skin. Mix ½ teaspoon each of lime juice and cucumber juice. Apply the remedy to your skin a couple of minutes before taking a shower.


Keeping your hair away from the face reduces the amount of oils your skin comes in contact with.


For temporary relief, mud masks help absorb oil in the skin. The mud cleanses the surface of the skin by eliminating greasiness.


Learn meditation techniques, such as yoga or breathing exercises, as a way to cut down on the stress and tension that can affect the health of your face.

Herbal Supplements and Home Remedies For Diabetes




The word diabetes was coined by the 2nd-century A.D. Greek physician, Aretus the Cappadocian, meaning 'the siphon' as the condition is characterized by excessive urination.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), diabetes is a chronic disease that occurs when the pancreas either does not produce enough insulin or when the body cannot effectively use the insulin it produces. Hyperglycaemia, or raised blood sugar, is a common effect of uncontrolled diabetes and over time leads to serious damage to many of the body's systems, especially the nerves and blood vessels. The word mellitus was added to diabetes in 1675 by Thomas Willis. Mel in Latin means honey and refers to the excess of glucose in the urine and blood of people with diabetes.

Types of diabetes

According to WHO, there are three main types of diabetes:

Diabetes Type 1 - The body does not produce insulin at all. Also called early onset or juvenile diabetes, it requires the person to inject insulin throughout his/her life. People suffering from this types of diabetes are also very prone to ketoacidosis. The cause is not certain and could be genetic, viral, or multifactorial.

Diabetes Type 2 - Also called maturity onset, Type 2 diabetes is a result of insulin resistance. The body doesn't produce enough insulin, or is not able to utilize insulin effectively.

Gestational Diabetes - A form of diabetes that develops during pregnancy.

Diabetes Types 1 & 2 are chronic, lifelong medical conditions. Gestational diabetes usually disappears after the birth of a child but can later lead to type 2 diabetes.

Juvenile diabetes may be either Type 1 or Type 2, and is seen in children or adolescents.

Symptoms

Common symptoms of diabetes are:


•Frequent urination
•Disproportionate thirst
•Intense hunger
•Weight gain
•Unusual weight loss (More common among people with Diabetes Type 1)
•Increased fatigue
•Irritability
•Blurred vision
•Cuts and bruises don't heal properly or quickly
•More skin and/or yeast infections
•Itchy skin
•Red or swollen gums
•Numbness or tingling, especially in the feet and hands

Diabetes is typically detected by carrying out a urine test, followed by a blood test

High risk groups of diabetes

Certain people are at higher risk of getting Type 2 diabetes. High risk groups include those who:-


•Are over 55
•Have a family history of diabetes
•Are overweight or obese
•Have high blood pressure
•Had diabetes during pregnancy or gave birth to a big baby (more than 9 pounds)
•Are Southeast Asian, Asian Indian, Afro-American, Hispanic American or Native American
•Have polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)
•Have heart disease

There is only one way to check if you have diabetes: get your blood sugar level tested.

Diabetes related complications

Diabetes is a chronic, life-long condition that requires careful monitoring and management. Left untreated, it can lead to various complications such as kidney failure, cardiovascular disease, and blindness in some cases. Diabetes causes about 5% of all deaths globally each year. Diabetes deaths are likely to increase by more than 50% in the next 10 years without urgent action and preventive measures.

Short-term complications:

Low blood sugar (hypoglycaemia)

Anyone who suffers from diabetes and takes insulin is going to face the problem of blood sugar falling too low at some point. This state is called hypoglycaemia and can be corrected quickly by eating something sweet, like candy or plain sugar. If it is not corrected, hypoglycaemia can lead to the person losing consciousness.

The typical signs of hypoglycemia are:


•hunger
•shakiness
•sweating
•dizziness or light-headedness
•confusion
•weakness

Ketoacidosis
This is a severe condition caused by lack of insulin. It mostly affects people with type 1 diabetes. Acidic waste products called ketones are produced when the body breaks down fats. In the absence of insulin, the body cannot release all the ketones and they build up in your blood, causing ketoacidosis.

Lactic acidosis
Lactic acidosis is the build-up of lactic acid in the body. Too much lactic acid in the body makes people feel ill. Otherwise, Lactic acidosis is a rare ailment. It mainly affects people with type 2 diabetes.

Bacterial / fungal infections
Patients are more prone to fungal and bacterial and infections like boils, boils, athlete's foot, sties, ring worm, and vaginal infections.

Long-term complications:

Eye disease (retinopathy)
As per statistics, about 2% of all people who have had diabetes for 15 years or more become blind, while about 10% develop a severe visual impairment.

Kidney disease (nephropathy)
Diabetes is the leading cause of kidney disease (nephropathy) and failure. About one third of all people with diabetes develop kidney disease and approximately 20% of people with type 1 diabetes develop kidney failure.

Nerve disease (neuropathy)
Diabetic nerve disease, or neuropathy, affects at least half of all people with diabetes. Common complaints are loss of sensation in the feet or in some cases the hands, pain in the foot and problems with the functioning of different parts of the body including the heart, the eye, the stomach, the bladder and the penis. A lack of sensation in the feet and hands can lead to patients to injure themselves without realizing it.

Diseases of the circulatory system
The risk of heart disease is 2-4 times higher in diabetes patients than for those who do not have diabetes. It is the main cause of disability and death for people with type 2 diabetes in industrialized countries.

Amputation
Diabetics are more likely (20 to 35 times) to require lower-limb amputation.

Prevention & Lifestyle modification

Experts and doctors believe that while there is yet no evidence to suggest that Type 1 diabetes can be prevented, primary prevention of type 2 diabetes is possible.

Weight control, a balanced diet, and increased physical activity are important in the prevention of type 2 diabetes. The benefits of reducing body weight and increasing physical activity also play a role in reducing heart disease, high blood pressure, etc.

Secondary prevention involves the early detection and prevention of complications, therefore reducing the need for treatment. Regular annual check-ups go a long way in timely detection of diabetes. Periodic check of blood glucose levels is a must as are the monitoring of blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

Healthy eating, regular exercise, weight control all contribute to good cardiovascular health. Diabetics should also quit smoking.

According to the Mayo Clinic, daily intake of calories should consist of:


•Carbohydrates 45% to 65%
•Proteins 15% to 20%
•Fats 20% to 35%

Patients are advised to adhere to meal plans for portion sizes and eating times. This will keep blood sugar and your weight ideal.

Treatment

Though there is no known cure for diabetes, all types of diabetes are treatable. The main treatment for a Type 1 diabetic is injected insulin, along with some dietary and exercise adherence.

If you have Type 1 and follow a healthy eating plan, do adequate exercise, and take insulin, you can lead a normal life. Larry King, Halle Berry, and several well known diabetic US baseball and basketball players lead normal lives. Type 2 patients need to eat healthily, be physically active, and test their blood glucose regularly. They may also be prescribed oral medication to control blood glucose levels. Sometimes, Type 2 patients may also require insulin injections.

Herbal Remedies for Diabetes

Diabet Guard Effective in controlling blood sugar and allied complications. It contains the goodness of Jamun, Karela, Methi, Neem, Purified Shilajit and Gurmar leaves.

Amalaki or Indian gooseberry is a rich concentrated source of Vitamin C and is effective in controlling diabetes. A tablespoon of amla juice, along with a cup of bitter gourd juice, stimulates the pancreas to produce insulin.

Herbal Supplements and Home Remedies For Diabetes




The word diabetes was coined by the 2nd-century A.D. Greek physician, Aretus the Cappadocian, meaning 'the siphon' as the condition is characterized by excessive urination.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), diabetes is a chronic disease that occurs when the pancreas either does not produce enough insulin or when the body cannot effectively use the insulin it produces. Hyperglycaemia, or raised blood sugar, is a common effect of uncontrolled diabetes and over time leads to serious damage to many of the body's systems, especially the nerves and blood vessels. The word mellitus was added to diabetes in 1675 by Thomas Willis. Mel in Latin means honey and refers to the excess of glucose in the urine and blood of people with diabetes.

Types of diabetes

According to WHO, there are three main types of diabetes:

Diabetes Type 1 - The body does not produce insulin at all. Also called early onset or juvenile diabetes, it requires the person to inject insulin throughout his/her life. People suffering from this types of diabetes are also very prone to ketoacidosis. The cause is not certain and could be genetic, viral, or multifactorial.

Diabetes Type 2 - Also called maturity onset, Type 2 diabetes is a result of insulin resistance. The body doesn't produce enough insulin, or is not able to utilize insulin effectively.

Gestational Diabetes - A form of diabetes that develops during pregnancy.

Diabetes Types 1 & 2 are chronic, lifelong medical conditions. Gestational diabetes usually disappears after the birth of a child but can later lead to type 2 diabetes.

Juvenile diabetes may be either Type 1 or Type 2, and is seen in children or adolescents.

Symptoms

Common symptoms of diabetes are:


•Frequent urination
•Disproportionate thirst
•Intense hunger
•Weight gain
•Unusual weight loss (More common among people with Diabetes Type 1)
•Increased fatigue
•Irritability
•Blurred vision
•Cuts and bruises don't heal properly or quickly
•More skin and/or yeast infections
•Itchy skin
•Red or swollen gums
•Numbness or tingling, especially in the feet and hands

Diabetes is typically detected by carrying out a urine test, followed by a blood test

High risk groups of diabetes

Certain people are at higher risk of getting Type 2 diabetes. High risk groups include those who:-


•Are over 55
•Have a family history of diabetes
•Are overweight or obese
•Have high blood pressure
•Had diabetes during pregnancy or gave birth to a big baby (more than 9 pounds)
•Are Southeast Asian, Asian Indian, Afro-American, Hispanic American or Native American
•Have polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)
•Have heart disease

There is only one way to check if you have diabetes: get your blood sugar level tested.

Diabetes related complications

Diabetes is a chronic, life-long condition that requires careful monitoring and management. Left untreated, it can lead to various complications such as kidney failure, cardiovascular disease, and blindness in some cases. Diabetes causes about 5% of all deaths globally each year. Diabetes deaths are likely to increase by more than 50% in the next 10 years without urgent action and preventive measures.

Short-term complications:

Low blood sugar (hypoglycaemia)

Anyone who suffers from diabetes and takes insulin is going to face the problem of blood sugar falling too low at some point. This state is called hypoglycaemia and can be corrected quickly by eating something sweet, like candy or plain sugar. If it is not corrected, hypoglycaemia can lead to the person losing consciousness.

The typical signs of hypoglycemia are:


•hunger
•shakiness
•sweating
•dizziness or light-headedness
•confusion
•weakness

Ketoacidosis
This is a severe condition caused by lack of insulin. It mostly affects people with type 1 diabetes. Acidic waste products called ketones are produced when the body breaks down fats. In the absence of insulin, the body cannot release all the ketones and they build up in your blood, causing ketoacidosis.

Lactic acidosis
Lactic acidosis is the build-up of lactic acid in the body. Too much lactic acid in the body makes people feel ill. Otherwise, Lactic acidosis is a rare ailment. It mainly affects people with type 2 diabetes.

Bacterial / fungal infections
Patients are more prone to fungal and bacterial and infections like boils, boils, athlete's foot, sties, ring worm, and vaginal infections.

Home Remedies for Toe Pain



Although they are one of the smaller parts of the body, the toe is still susceptible to various injuries and medical conditions. From the misstep of a dance partner to a sporting accident, you may find yourself with swelling, pain, and complications that affect other body parts. To get you back onto the road to recovery, consider using home remedies for toe pain.

Having someone step on your big toe is enough to cause injury, but there are also many different medical conditions and common threats that can cause toe pain. Some of the most typical causes of toe pain include:


• Arthritis: Arthritis is a common threat, which causes an inflammatory response in the body. Gout is a type of arthritis that often attacks the big toe when crystal deposits form in the joints. The result is severe pain and swelling. Osteoarthritis (such as hallux rigidus or toe arthritis) strikes the base of the big toe, causing pain and stiff joints that gets worse over time.


• Bunion: The bony prominence that can develop along the edge of the foot (right next to the base of the big toe) is often a result of wearing poorly fitting footwear. Extreme cases require surgery.


• Hammer Toe: Creating a hammer-like appearance, wearing tight shoes can cause a toe to bend near the joint.

• Claw Toe: Striking the joint at the end of a toe, claw toe prevents you from straightening out your toes, which instead, point upward or downward. This condition can lead to other foot problems and irritation.

• Ingrown Toenails: Ignoring the misalignment for toenail growth can lead to skin on one or both sides growing over a nail. Pain, shoe discomfort, and infection may occur.


• Turf Toe: Some sporting activities can cause pain to develop at the base of the big toe. This type of overuse injury often takes place because of strain associated with running and jumping. For example, football players are notorious for suffering turf toe.


• Toe Sprain: When you jam or stub your toe, the tendon or soft tissues of the region can become damaged. The difference between a sprain and fracture is that sprains cause pain and swelling that fades within days.


• Corns and Calluses: Excess skin buildup can cause pain in the toes. Corns are comprised of thick, tough skin that develops when the foot or toe suffers too much irritation and pressure, such as wearing ill-fitting shoes. Calluses cover a wider area on the toes or feet.


• Fracture: Fractures can occur in the toe region, such as a sesamoid fracture, which affects the small bones embedded in the tendons that attach to the big toe. The main symptom is pain in and around the toe. In the worst cases, surgery becomes a last resort.


Toe and toenail problems are very common and can affect people of all ages. When your symptoms come from wearing poor footwear (one of the most frequent causes of toe pain), the pain can get pretty intense – to the point that walking becomes difficult. To promote healthy healing of your feet, consider the following home remedies for toe pain:


To gain relief from sore ingrown toenails, soak your foot in a tub of warm water with an added two tablespoons of Epsom salts. Soak for five to ten minutes – once or twice per day.


Combine one tablespoon of lemon juice with five to six crushed aspirin tablets to create a healing paste for a callus. Apply the remedy directly to a callus. Follow up by wrapping the foot in a plastic bag for ten minutes. The acidity of the lemon will help soften the callus. To remove dead skin, gently rub with a pumice stone.


To decrease the pressure on a painful big toe joint, it is suggested to put away the slippers and use a sandal that delivers arch support when walking around your home. Open-toed sandals give painful toes room to breathe and heal.


Apply ice to affected parts of the toe and foot to alleviate pain. For example, ice a bunion for 10 minutes every evening.


Stretching your shoes where your bunion is located can help ease discomfort.


High heels have a reputation for causing undue pressure on the toes. Women should limit the number of times they wear heels in a month and opt for a lower heel – about 1-inch high.


When painful corns and calluses become too much to bear, reach for a pumice stone to wear down the extra skin.


When calluses and corns are the cause of your toe pain, take a good look at your footwear. Tight shoes cause unnecessary pressure and irritation to the toes.


When trimming ingrown toenails, cut them straight across. If the corners appear too sharp, use a file to create a better shape. Just think, when you stand up, the weight of your entire body comes crashing down on your feet. This pressure pushes up the skin in front of the toenail. When nails are cut too short, they can dig into the skin as it regrows. This is why it is best to trim a nail so that it is flush with the front end of the toe.


The kind of socks you wear can reduce toe pain, including the discomfort associated with bunions. Socks can reduce friction and act as a cushion at the same time. If you are suffering from a bunion, avoid cotton socks because of the high-friction risk. Also, if you are battling an infected ingrown toenail, avoid colored socks. The dye can actually leak into a wound and worsen your symptoms.


There are some exercises for toes and toe joints that can ease the appearance and discomfort of hammer toe and claw toe.


To treat ingrown toenails, soak in a bath of warm water at least four times per day. At some point, wedge a small piece of gauze between the nail and wet skin to encourage healing.


Rub in a moisturizing cream on your foot and toes. Wrap the foot in a plastic bag and leave on for a couple of hours. After removing the bag, gently rub your corn with a pumice stone using a sideways motion. This is a good remedy to do when you’ve got a few hours of TV time to spare.


Soak corns and calluses in a basin filled with warm water. Add three tablespoons of baking soda to the water. You may also massage calluses with a paste made from 3 parts baking soda and 1 part water. This home remedy for toe pain will loosen dead skin and encourage healing.


When you sprinkle cornstarch between your toes, you can keep the region dry and protect the skin from breaking down. Moisture is known to worsen the symptoms of corns and calluses, as well as create an environment for fungus to thrive.


Apply a vinegar-soaked cotton ball to a corn or callus to soften hardened skin. Put a piece of tape over the cotton to hold in place. Leave the remedy on overnight, and in the morning, gently rub with a pumice stone.


To reduce the friction that causes corns and calluses, slather on a coat of petroleum jelly (like Vaseline) on your toes when getting ready to do a lot of walking or running.


To control the toe pain associated with gout, dietary restrictions can help. The object is to avoid foods that are high in purine. You should limit the amount of meat, poultry and fish that you eat. Increase the number of plant-based protein you eat, such as beans and legumes. Alcohol interferes with your ability to eliminate uric acid, so limiting your consumption is highly recommended. Drinking a lot of water can help flush out uric acid in the body. Choose low-fat or fat-free dairy products. Add whole grains, fruits, and vegetables to your meals. Also, limit your sugar intake for better results.
