Dilute tea works great. Another is 1/4 cup white vinegar to quart of cool water.

You can use antiseptic to decrease reinfection but the use of specific anti fungal creams is still recommended.
A dilute clorox solution can decrease the fungal load.A teaspoon in a foot bath. Clorox spray can be used in sneakers or shoes to disinfect footwear to decrease the chances of reinfection.
