Olive Farmer Discovers Super Sanitizer: Can It Treat Foot Fungus Too?

Several years ago, Merritt Erickson of Orland, California was an olive and almond farmer looking for a better way to kill botulism and preserve his fresh olives.

They called the sanitizer “Organic Chico Wash” and obtained FDA approval to clean produce and wash cow teats. However, the team believes the application of their discovery can be much more far-reaching — treating warts, foot fungus, and ringworm as well.
