- Nonprescription salicylic acid are available as a patch or liquid which are wart removal products. Usually, you're instructed to wash the site, soak it for up to 20 minutes, gently remove dead tissue with a pumice stone or emery board, and apply the solution or patch. Patches are usually changed every 48 hours. Liquid applications are generally used twice a day. You may not see results for several weeks.
