5 Ways to Use Hydrogen Peroxide at Home
That brown bottle of hydrogen peroxide in your bathroom cabinet or first aid kit can do a lot more than care for minor cuts and wounds. You can increase the yield of the plants in your garden, clean your house and clothes, and improve your beauty routine.
Hydrogen peroxide is sold in concentrations of 3 to 10 percent in most drug stores. The 3 percent solution works great for cleaning and disinfecting the home.
- Tip: Hydrogen peroxide comes in the dark brown bottle because it breaks down into the water when exposed to heat, light, and air. Decomposition isn't harmful, but if the "buzz" goes away when you start cleaning, you're just using plain water. Use the jar within a month or so for best results, but it can still be used for about six months after opening.
1. Sanitize manicure and beauty tools
Every time you use tweezers, manicure or pedicure tools, and eyelash rollers, they come into contact with the dirt and bacteria on your body. Soaking or scrubbing with a little hydrogen peroxide will disinfect tools and prevent infection.
2. Disinfect toothbrushes and mouth guards
Sports toothbrushes, retainers, and mouth guards can be disinfected by quick soaking in hydrogen peroxide. Give each of them a good rinse with water before using them.
- Warning: There is one thing you should not do with hydrogen peroxide: swallow it. Even at a concentration of 3%, it can cause mouth blisters, vomiting, and abdominal pain.
3. Get more beautiful and fragrant feet
Stinky feet are covered in odor-causing bacteria. Mix one foot of sauce with one part hydrogen peroxide to three parts warm water. The same treatment will help protect against the spread of athlete's foot fungus and will even soothe corns and calluses.
4. Whiten discolored nails
Mix one part hydrogen peroxide and two parts baking soda in a bowl to form a paste. It will lather a bit, but when it stops, spread the paste over and under your nails. Leave on for three minutes and then rinse with running water.
5. Clean and disinfect kitchen sponges
Kitchen sponges harbor really scary bacteria like E. coli and Salmonella. Disinfect them daily with a solution of 50% water and 50% hydrogen peroxide.
