Hydrogen Peroxide

Hydrogen Peroxide is a wondrous thing.  It has a wide variety of uses and is far less harmful than some of the other chemicals out there for the same purposes….

Here are some of the uses:

  •  As a mouthwash and gargle
  • In relaxing baths and foot baths
  • To sanitize toothbrushes, and dentures
  • As a produce wash, to keep fruits and veggies fresh longer
  • To disinfect compost pails, cutting boards, and scrub brushes
  • For washing carpets, floors, and windows
  • Stripping wood furniture, and cleaning wooden decks
  • Removing mold
  • To brighten laundry & remove stains
  • To clean out aquariums
  • To keep the water clean in fish farming
  • In gardening: As a plant fertilizer and plant spray
  • To clean swimming pools and spas, as an alternative to chlorine
  • Taxidermists use it to clean and whiten bones…..
  • It’s used in making cheese
  • Aseptic packaging (those weird little boxes that food comes in) are sprayed with it
  • It is used in products for whitening teeth, treating acne, and cleaning contact lenses
  • Oh, and it’s also great for cleaning cuts and skin infections! You know, like the brown bottles at the drug store….
    source: using-hydrogen-peroxide.com

The above isn’t even the complete list.  There are a great deal of uses for H2O2 (Hydrogen Peroxide).  This site is a great resource: using-hydrogen-peroxide.com

Beyond the standard drugstore brown bottles you can get Food grade Hydrogen Peroxide in varying dilutions.

The typical brown bottle is a 3% solution is the most common.  One thing to keep in mind is that not all ‘brown’ bottles are the same.  Some are safe for use as a gargle and related uses and some aren’t.  Make sure you read the label before using.

As with all of your preps, having hard copies of various information is a must: List of books related to Hydrogen Peroxide on Amazon

We have been using Hydrogen Peroxide in a spray bottle for everyday cleaning and are pleased.  If you look at the cost of standard chemical based cleanersvs. that of a standard brown bottle.  I payed $0.88 each  for a couple bottles the other day.

OPSEC and the Holidays

One thing that is overlooked way to often is OPSEC  in everyday life.  Some people out there are quite good at it and others are oblivious (the majority of the sheeple).  Now is a perfect time to discuss OPSEC not

necessarily with respect to a disaster, but with respect to thieves.  I know this isn’t a pleasant topic to think about with Christmas being only a few days ago.  This however is one of the most overlooked times, when
it comes to OPSEC.  The week after Christmas is one of, if not the most opportune times for thieves to scope out neighborhoods.

The garbage day after Christmas has probably one of the highest amounts of trash put to the road.  So this in turn is a burglars paradise.  They can simply drive around and take notes of the new ‘toys’ people received over the holiday.  Don’t get me wrong, just because you get some new stuff doesn’t make you a target for thieves.

If you think about it though, putting boxes from things like computers, TV’s, tablets, etc. out for the weekly garbage is like putting out a shopping list for thieves.

Most people wouldn’t even think twice about putting out the boxes without cutting them up or even better yet reusing them for something else.

So what to do?  Well the first thing that comes to mind would be, make sure you are spending your money on things that fit into your survival and preparedness goals.  Now beyond that reuse the boxes for other things.  You could use the cardboard for

insulating where you have your supplies stored.  Cut-up the boxes so they are can fit in a recycling bin or garbage can if your area doesn’t recycle.  Depending on what you have you could possibly burn it in your wood stove.  And worst come to worst, you could take a trip to your local waste processing facility, this isn’t the best option, but is an option if you chose this.  Just remember to use good OPSEC when moving these items.
