Well, you can use stumpwater. Or you can whup out your pow-wow books and test your braucha kung-fu. Both Albertus Magnus and Long Lost Friend have
wart removal charms.
Personally, I had the doc freeze one and got tired of that, so I killed about half of them I had at the time (including a plantar wart) by scrubbing
the area with betadine, flaming a needle, and opening the wart capsule around the edges. If you loosen them up, you'll find there's a tough membrane
around the base, and the wart itself is sort of like a tiny cauliflower on a stalk sitting in that membrane, with the stalk passing through the
bottom. If you loosen it up a bit so you can lift the wart, stick in a crystal of oxalic acid between the wart and the membrane. Then wrap the area
with 100-mile-an-hour tape and wait a couple of days.
When you peel the tape, the wart will come off, leaving a shiny pit. Mostly painless, although it's a bit irritating getting the wart peeled away
from its membrane. You don't have to do a huge area, just enough to get the oxalic acid in. It's a very very active coagulant, and it clots the
warts blood supply off.
