How to “De-Fungus” Your Home

how to treat nail fungus in your homeOne of the most common reasons people are unable to successfully treat their toenail or fingernail fungus is because their living area has been overrun with fungus.

That means – if you don’t treat your home (and objects that frequently contact your nails), you will continually re-infect yourself on a daily basis.

Here are some simple and cheap ways to sterilize your home from nail fungus:

  • Use a dehumidifier in your bed room and bathroom – your bedroom and your bathroom are the most common areas of your house that harbor rogue nail fungus strands. Since fungus thrives in high moisture environments, by keeping your house dry, you rob it of a vital ingredient it needs to survive.
  • Then, grab a bottle of spray on bleach – spray the floor and sides of your bathtub with bleach and let it sit for an hour. Also spray the floor of your bathroom with bleach as well. This will get rid of any nail fungus clinging to your bathroom area.
  • Next, trash your socks – Toenail fungus LOVES to cling to socks. Since socks are cheap, I recommend you trash your old ones and buy new pairs.
  • Now, take care of your tennis shoes – To eradicate toenail fungus from your tennis shoes: Place your shoes in a freezer bag and zip lock it shut. Then place your shoes in your freezer overnight forĀ  12 hours. Then, remove them from the freezer and immediately place them in your clothes dryer for a full dry cycle. This cold to hot temperature change kills nail fungus really well.
  • Clean your bed sheets – Bed sheets are another area toenail fungus clings to. Follow the same freeze/dry process you used for your shoes or just buy new bed sheets.

Do all of the above treatments every 2 weeks, and you should see a significant improvement in how quickly your fungal nail infections clear up, as well as help guarantee you won’t re-infect yourself (or other people living in your home) in the future.

Good luck, and check out some of the other pages on my website for more useful tips!
