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….

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.
