Vinegar - Home remedy for Boils:  Select a brown paper bag big enough to cover the boil. Make several layers the same size out of the brown paper bag. Soak each piece of paper in distilled vinegar until they are saturated. Place each layer over the boil. Tape in place and leave it on overnight. When you take it off in the morning the boil would have burst or very close to bursting. If it is close to bursting, just a very slight pull will burst it. Make sure you keep the area clean.
