Something was said today about warts and how to get rid of them.


This is back in 1930’s  and goes back further, but I don’t know how far. My dad had two different solutions for getting rid of a wart.


First  one: you ‘steal’ a dish towel and go in a very dark place. There you rub the wart be hind your back with the dish towel…and it will go away.!


No dish towels around so lets switch over to a new moon. When there is a new moon, you go out in the dark and pick up a stone, then use that stone to rub the wart, behind your back. With this action you say “Welcome New Moon , I’m glad you’ve come” repeating this three times, then throw the stone away behind you.Wart will disappear.!


I don’t have a medical license, so be careful who you tell about this!!  Funny thing is…they did disappear!

  1. Isn’t it funny how those old saws still seem to work? I’d never heard of these two. I seem to remember something about tying a red piece of yarn around a wart during a new moon. 🙂

  2. I’ve had a delightful time catching up on your postings this morning – what a diversification of topics! Interesting wart fixes – I hadn’t heard of these two. 🙂

  3. Interesting! My parents should have known about these back when I was a teenager. Then perhaps I wouldn’t have had to go through the medical removal processes that I endured! Then again, you can’t always depend on the rumoured methods, can you? 😀
