There are two types of Compound W Freeze Off to remove warts. One treats common warts on fingers, hands and the top of your feet. The other is marketed as Compound W Freeze Off Plantar and is for the removal of plantar warts. Plantar warts occur on the bottom of your feet and are noncancerous skin growths. This type of wart can be painful when it occurs on the balls or heels of your feet. Both kits include applicators, a handle and an aerosol bottle of medicine. The plantar version also includes a pumice file and wart cushions.

Insert the foam applicator into the handle. Turn the handle counterclockwise to secure the applicator in the handle.
Place the aerosol can on a table and hold it steady with one hand. Align the notches of the handle in the top of the aerosol can and press it down into the can with the other hand. Hold the handle with the applicator in the can for two to three seconds. There will be a hissing sound as the applicator saturates with the medication.
Pull the handle on the applicator straight up and out of the can.
Lightly press the foam applicator on the wart and hold it there for 20 seconds or less.
Dispose of the applicator without touching the foam end.
Place warm water in a container and soak the affected foot in the water for five minutes. This softens the tissue on your foot. Dry the area thoroughly with a towel.
File the plantar wart down with the pumice file in the plantar wart kit.
Follow the instructions for the common warts application -- insert the foam applicator into the handle, apply the medicine in the aerosol can and press the applicator onto the plantar wart.
Peel the sticky backing off a plantar wart cushion in the kit. Place it over the wart with the hole on the center of the wart and press it on your foot. The cushion helps to relieve pain associated with pressure while you walk.
