In brief: Warts
Each night before going to bed soak a cotton ball in apple cider vinegar, apply it to the wart and then hold it in place with a band-aid.
Leave it on all night, or if you like, 24 hours a day but change the soaked cotton and band-aid each evening for a week. The wart will swell and may throb as it reacts with the vinegar and then start to turn black within the first two days and in two weeks gone.

In brief: A few methods
Freezing is still probably the best.
Some other ways include using over the counter acid preparations, prescription anti-wart meds such as aldara, (imiquimod) or even injecting the meds with something called candidal antigen, which is a part of a yeast which when injected, irritates the immune system enough to attack the wart. The duct tape evidence doesn't really pan out sadly.
