The James T. Callow Folklore Archive
Take a piece of string and tie a knot in it for each wart
that you have. Dig a hole, and bury the string.
When the string rots, your warts will be gone.
Count the number of warts you have, and write the number
in chalk on the inside of the oven door. When the number
fades, your warts will be gone.
When I was twelve I had warts all over my hands and I was
really upset about them. My mother told me these remedies,
told to her by her mother.
