People around the globe are reporting their successes in treating toenail fungus and athlete’s foot by using simple vinegar and baking soda soaks. People use both white vinegar and apple cider vinegar for treatment.

Baking soda soaks up moisture that may cause toenail fungus; it changes the pH of your skin, thus suppressing the growth of toenail fungus by changing their favorite growth environment. Baking soda is used to prevent the fungus from growing and spreading further. To kill off the fungus, we need the vinegar.
Vinegar is one of the more common ways to treat toenail fungus. Vinegar is an anti fungal and is also acidic but still mild enough to not damage the surrounding skin and nail.
