Household Uses For Hydrogen Peroxide

Many of us have hydrogen peroxide, or H2O2, in our medicine cabinets. Hydrogen peroxide is a chemical compound that breaks down into water and oxygen upon contact with other natural compounds. This released oxygen is what makes hydrogen peroxide a very effective cleaner with many household uses. Here are some examples:

1. Toothpaste

Stop buying expensive toothpastes that contain hydrogen peroxide, instead make your own mouthwash by mixing hydrogen peroxide and water in 1:1 ratio. This will kill all the bacteria in your mouth that can cause halitosis and will make your breath fresh. Hydrogen peroxide is safe and you can use it safely to fight plaque, gingivitis and bleeding gums.

Got bloodstains on your textiles? Stop worrying and put some hydrogen peroxide on the affected area and rinse with cold water before washing your clothes. This will help remove stains and your clothes will be left with a softer texture. Test a small portion of fabric before use.

3. Foot fungus

Get rid of foot fungus by applying a 1:1 mixture of hydrogen peroxide and water on your toes and other areas every night. Let it dry then wash off in the morning.

4. Cure for infections
