Apple cider vinegar is another natural wart remover. Like with most of the natural wart removers, you apply apple cider vinegar at night.

Removing Skin Tags
Skin tags represent growths of skin that stick out from the skin surface. They normally form around the neck, upper chest, underarms and eyelids. The most common cause of skin tags is from skin rubbing against skin. The common treatments for skin tags are: tying off, cutting off, and freezing. There are some natural remedies though which are available for you to use at home.
Tea Tree Oil
Removing skin tags is a process which is a bit slower than most (up to one month) but is much safer for skin tags found around the eyes. Just soak a cotton ball with water and add a couple of drops of tea tree oil. Then you dab the cotton ball on the skin tag and cover with a bandage. Repeat this process two or three times a day.
Baking Soda and Castor Oil
According to LiveStrong, a great way to remove skin tags is a castor oil and baking soda combination. You mix the baking soda and castor oil together so that it forms a paste. You then apply the paste to the skin tag and cover it with a bandage. Repeat the process two or three times a day and store extra paste in the fridge for up to 48 hours.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Skin Tags Gone also has a method for removing skin tags and it involves apple cider vinegar. Soak a cotton ball in apple cider vinegar and squeeze it to remove any excess. Then dab the skin tag with the apple cider vinegar. You can leave the apple cider vinegar on for as long as you want, but it does have a strong smell. It will take several days, but the skin tag will darken and fall off.
