Hydrogen Peroxide Cures Nail Fungus – Step by Step Guide

Hydrogen peroxide is used for many things in the household, but it’s also a remedy that if you hadn’t known by now, it can be used to disinfect minor scratches and cuts – it’s what doctors usually use in the hospital when cleaning wounds.

But that’s not its only purpose. It can also be used for treating nail fungus because it has so many antifungal properties (makes sense it’s used to clean wounds), as well as antiseptic properties.

If you’re new to this and don’t really know how to use hydrogen peroxide for nail fungus, then just simply follow the steps we put together for you below:

First, obviously, you need to purchase it. Next:

1. Soak Your Feet In Hydrogen Peroxide

What you’ll need:
  • 3% hydrogen peroxide
  • Distilled water
  • Plastic tub
  • Tissues
How long:

30 minutes

Method

Mix equal parts of the hydrogen peroxide and distilled water in the plastic tub and soak your nails in it for 30 minutes. Dry them with a clean tissue and toss it. Make sure your nails are dry before doing the soaking.

How Often?

Every day even after the problem goes away.

Why This Works

Because as the oxygen levels increase, the fungus on your nails gets destroyed – the best case scenario.

2. Vinegar And Hydrogen Peroxide For Nail Fungus

Here’s what you’ll need:
  • 3% hydrogen peroxide
  • White vinegar/apple cider vinegar
  • Distilled water
  • Plastic tub
  • Tissues
Pay attention:

While method 1 is often quoted as a solution to nail fungus on the internet, we recommend using method 2. This is because under certain conditions, mixing hydrogen peroxide and vinegar can form peracetic acid, which is a caustic chemical that does not share the desired properties to treat nail fungus.

How long:

Method 1 – 10 minutes

Method 2 – 30 minutes

Method

Mix e equal parts of the hydrogen peroxide, distilled water, and vinegar in the plastic tub and soak your feet for 10 minutes. Pat dry with a tissue and throw it afterwards.

How Often?

You have to repeat this process every day until, and even after, the problem subsides. Getting rid of nail fungus is not easy and will take a lot of patience and effort.

Why This Works

Vinegar is an acidic solution that restores the pH balance of your skin and nails. Apple cider vinegar is the best one to use in this situation.

3. Baking Soda And Hydrogen Peroxide For Nail Fungus

Here’s what you’ll need
  • ½ cup baking soda
  • 1 cup 3% hydrogen peroxide
  • ¼ cup white vinegar
  • 4 cups warm water
  • ½ cup Epsom salt
  • Plastic tub
  • Tissues
How long?

10 minutes

Method

Mix everything together in a plastic tub and soak your feet in the tub for 10 minutes. Pat dry with a tissue and toss it.

 How Often?

Every day even after the problem goes away.

Why This Works

Baking soda has antifungal properties and it prevents the growth of fungus. Also, it will balance your skin’s pH levels while killing off fungus.
