Toe nail fungus thickens the nail, discoloring it. Also breaks and cracks the nails. It can be from mild to severe. But I am sharing safe natural home remedies that will get rid of toe nail fungus for good.

Apple cider vinegar
Take a cotton wool. Dip in apple cider vinegar. Put on the nail that is affected. Fasten it with tape. At night replace with fresh cotton that is soaked in apple cider vinegar.

Another way is simply relaxing with your feet soaked in apple cider vinegar. Or another if you don't have apple cider vinegar, although apple cider vinegar is preferred. Do not clean feet afterwards. Leave it to dry on it's own.

Listerine mixture
One bottle of Listerine mouth wash. 
10 ml tea tree essential oil
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
Mix all ingredients together in a bottle
Pour a small amount in a small container
Apply on the toes using a toothbrush, making sure you rub it in 
Do this every day morning and night.
Always remember to clean the toothbrush after every use, as well as the small container.

Vicks Vaporub
As Vicks Vaporub has antifungal properties it is an effective treatment for toe nail fungus.
Simply apply on the affected nail or nails. 
Do this 3 times a day. 

Tea tree oil
Tea tree oil also has anti fungal and antibacterial properties. Apply it on the affected area using a Qtip. 
Repeat daily.

Salt
Allow me to add a remedy for toenail fungus that I know works. Just add a teaspoon of salt to lukewarm water and leave your feet to soak in it for at least 15 to 20 minutes.
 For the same reason walking along the beach in the ocean waves is just as effective and if you are lucky enough to be someone to live at the coast. Do this and see it clear up in within one week or two depending on how severe the fungus is. Salt itself is antibacterial. And antifungal.

Please note
Please note that if the nail has been damaged badly it may fall off and a new nail will appear in it's place. So if that happens don't stress about that. If you are diabetic please remember that it is not advised that your feet stay wet for too long.
