Ten Uses For Hydrogen Peroxide


Note that for each use below, we use a solution of hydrogen peroxide 3% (comes in small brown containers at the pharmacy or drug store 1 gallon of healthy foods – sold as “non-bleach” ). Unless otherwise stated below, I use it all right. Note that if you want to keep it in a spray bottle, it must be a bottle that keeps out all light (light breaks down the peroxide hydrogen) – otherwise you will put as used in the sprayer.

1. Whiten your whites and brighten your brights. Works fabulously as an alternative to bleach, you can also use the color. Simply put hydrogen peroxide in the container of bleach in the washer.

2. Stain. Works great on the blood, if you can rather quickly – I learned that Matt’s mother is a nurse! Just pour a little on a cloth and dab your clothes, if it sat for a while, pour a little and let it sit for a couple of hours. Also, some people have a chemical difference in their sweat stains under the armpits yellow leaves on white clothing. Or wine stains on a white blouse? Again, pour a little hydrogen peroxide on the stain and let sit a few hours. Then wash as you normally would – what works for me every time!

3. Antiseptic. Works well to help kill germs and prevent infection of cuts and scratches. Make sure it bubbles first before dabbing off.

4. Mouthwash. Use hydrogen peroxide to gargle, you can use it directly or mix 1 to 1 of water to hydrogen peroxide. Gargle, Swoosh, Spit, and rinse. This works well if you have ulcers or sores in the mouth of others.

5. Toothpaste. You can make your own toothpaste using two tablespoons of baking soda and a tablespoon of peroxide. I do not do this regularly, but I did it in a pinch.

6. Cutting board and counter Sanitizer. Vinegar kills most microbes, and hydrogen peroxide kills most of the rest. Both kill more germs and bacteria than bleach alone, if you do this: vinegar and hydrogen peroxide in two different spray bottles, spray on first, then the other. Then rinse.

7. Water your plants. If you tend to over-water your plants, this is for you. Mix 1 oz of hydrogen peroxide with 1 liter of water, and water your plants properly. This adds oxygen to your soil, helping push promotes root rot and root development. I do this especially with the plants where the soil is too dense and more prone to water-logging.

8. Kill shower mold and mildew. Spray on surface and let sit, then wipe dry. Or spray after your shower to prevent mold from forming.

9. Toilet Bowl Cleaner. Pour hydrogen peroxide 1 / 2 cup in the bowl, let stand for 20 minutes, then rub clean.You can do the same thing with vinegar.

10. To speed germination when soaking seeds. This is news to me – I just read about it and have not tried it yet. Apparently, if you soak your seeds in a cup of water mixed with hydrogen peroxide 1.5 t, the seeds will germinate faster. Has anyone tried this yet?
