Cure for warts. Keep a knot of washing soda in your pocket and every time you think of it, wet the warts and rub on the W.soda and the warts will soon wear away.
If you find a snail without looking for it put it to the warts, put the snail up on a bush and as the snail withers the warts will be withering too. You should not let anyone know where the snail was.
Get a person to count your warts and that person will take them.
